- Addison Russell held his first press conference since being suspended for violating MLB's domestic violence policy. We share our thoughts on his statements.
- Joe Maddon spoke with the media a few times. He made some more comments on Russell, revealed the slogan for the 2019 Cubs, and talked about the offense and coaching strategy.
- Theo and Jed also addressed the media. Theo talked about Russell, how the Cubs are handling domestic violence issues as an organization, and the Joe Ricketts emails.
- We take a look at the health of the club heading into Spring Training.
- The Cubs have a new bullpen pitcher in Xavier Cedeno, and we talk about what impact that could have on Tyler Chatwood.
