Cubs 7, Pirates 5 (4/9/14)

Why the Chicago Cubs Should Have Followed Junior Lake’s Uniform Lead

Chicago Cubs News – Cubs outfielder Junior Lake took the field wearing a different jersey than the rest of his teammates today. This year the organization added a new road gray alternate which the team wore for the first two games of the season.

The Cubs and Pirates are playing an afternoon matinee at PNC Park, and since they’re the road team Chicago went with their splendid gray “CUBS” jerseys, except for outfielder Junior Lake, who inexplicably went with the gray “CHICAGO” jersey, in what may be the most Chicago Cubs thing ever.

I like him more than you: Junior Lake

It has happened to me five times now. Sitting there, 20+ rounds deep after having watched my peers reach heavily for heavily hyped (deserved in some instances) prospects. Waiting.

It’s safe to say, I like him...
