Willson Contreras. What else do you want? His 100th homer was a grand slam, appropriately at what should be his forever home of Wrigley Field, and his intensity for a 14-20 team is still World Series-worthy. We talk about him, and how there is no reasonable way forward but an extension. We also talk about the two newest Cubs called to the bigs: Christopher Morel and Brandon Hughes, both unusual players in fun ways. The Cubs have won 3 in a row and 5 of 7, led by -- you guessed it — Willson Contreras. We also talk about the fast-working Wade Miley and the swagger of an improving Justin Steele after his 10 K start in Arizona.
