Jon Lester, David Ross, Anthony Rizzo, Quintin Berry, Theo Epstein, Jed Hoyer—even "consultants" Manny Ramirez and Kevin Youkilis! These are some of the Red Sox connections on this year's Chicago Cubs ballclub. Last night, the North Siders blanked the home-town Pirates 4-0 in yet another stunning pitching display by Baltimore Oriole cast-off Jake Arrieta. Can you believe that the O's traded away this guy for Steve Clevenger and Scott Feldman? Anyway, now that The Evil Ones and Red Sox are golfing, we're pulling for the mini-Bruins of The Windy City.
