Cubs dress up as Super Mario Bros. characters for road trip (Picture)

The Cubs may be having a horrendous season, but it’s nice to see they are still having some fun. Big changes for the better were expected in Chicago when Theo Epstein took the reins, and in his first season as GM Cubs fans have seen the complete opposite. The Cubs are 38-56, in last place in the NL Central and are looking to be sellers at the trade deadline. None of that nonsense...
