Wrigley Field Will Host Meaningful Games Again Soon

  Stay patient, ever hoping Cub fan that's longing for a commodity competitive enough to warrant your approval. The current product at the major league level -- minus a couple of key pieces -- is definitely hard to be proud of.

Bryant has had his share of strikeouts but his good discipline and ability to draw walks overshadows that. Since Bryant has played three years of college ball, the ...
