Cubs Insider's Exclusive Interview With Dan Vogelbach

Cubs Insider's Exclusive Interview With Dan Vogelbach
Dan Vogelbach is awesome, and it has nothing to do with stats. From what I saw of him in action, the young man is a leader, the kind of player you want to be on the field with. But he’s also humble and polite, traits I was fortunate enough to experience firsthand. But the first... Read more »

Talking Jeff Samardzija Trade Fallout, Cubs All-Star Hopefuls, and More on the Radio
