World Series Dreaming:
The 2013 Cubs Convention is this weekend, and you can check out the schedule and the list of invitees that unfortunately (to me, at least) does not include a certain former Cub. For those of you who can’t go, please follow the WSD Twitter (check the sidebar to follow) and our forum thread where most of the news will end up once stories and updates are ready. There is also a live stream of the Opening Ceremony if you want to check it out in the forum thread. The Choose Your Own Cubs Adventure meme has worked a couple times before, so let’s bring it out of the mothballs again for another go as you wait for the Cubs Convention to begin…

There isn't much to be excited about in this Chicago Cubs pitching staff. There is depth sure, but there are only two or three true quality arms in the rotation. One of those arms is the breakout pitcher of 2012, Jeff Samardzija.
After the laughter subsided following Samardzija's declaration that he wanted to be in the rotation, he went out and dazzled all of us in spring...

starter has spent his entire career with...
After years of being the golden boy and fan favorite who couldn't quite get there, Jeff Samardzija arrived as a starter in 2012. His record and ERA perhaps belittle the type of season he really had. His record of 9-13 with an ERA of 3.89 in 28 starts might not excite anyone. If you dig a little deeper, there was a lot of impressive stuff about his season considering it was his...
