My reaction to Godley was also "Who?"
Hey, look! That 24 year old A-ball pitching non-/fringe-prospect ended up being a pretty decent MLB starter for at least a little bit.

Thanks for a fun couple of years Miggy. And that glorious NLCS grand slam.

I'm actually flying to DC right now. (No time to catch a game though unfortunately, booked this before I even noticed the Cubs were in town.) Maybe I'll come across Miggy on a bender tonight and buy him a shot or two.

30% of Cubs fans who bet on World Series win didn't cash the stubs in.

I can understand smaller payouts. I mean, that's why you bet twice: to keep one as a memento.
Just make a copy. Sheesh.

Cubs are going for it now.

Cleared out the best of their farm system. They'll have a hard time keeping all of their players long term. Arrieta is reverting to his norm and Lester is aging out.
