Willson Contreras is still a member of the Chicago Cubs, something most of us did not expect but were pleasantly surprised to learn on Tuesday after the trade deadline. Contreras was quite happy as well, and there’s reason to believe that it’s now more likely the Cubs will be able to sign him to an extension. We’ll see about that.
You can bet Contreras has been waiting for that next home run so he can trot around the bases and revel in the glory of still being on the team he grew up on. That just happened in St. Louis this morning — a 407-foot opp taco — and I could not think of a better place for him to go yard.
Cubs lead early 1-0.
