Yep, I cant wait to hear the “analysts” talking in every playoff game about how much money the Cubs spent in the off-season. Remember: $300 million. We’ll hear that number a lot. If they mention the contributions of guys like Fontenot, Soto, Hart, Marmol, from the farm system at all it will be a footnote.
I haven’t read this article yet but the Headline is pure brilliance.
Cubs’ spending pays off only with World Series
If Chicago falls short, its investment will look like it tried to buy title
Hmm, because if the Cubs actually do win the title then they didn’t TRY to buy it, they DID buy it. Which is much better.
