Report: Cubs directive aims to prevent players, employees from selling World Series rings

  Report: Cubs directive aims to prevent players, employees from selling World Series rings The Cubs organization is asking each player and employee given a World Series Championship ring to sign an agreement reserving the team's right to buy the ring back for $1 if the recipient decides to sell it, the Chicago Sun-Times reports. "We regret the formal nature of this memo, and we do not intend for this information to overshadow our joy in being able to provide this ring to you," a team memo states, according to the Sun-Times.The memo also says that if the Cubs decide against buying the ring back, the same terms will apply to future owners of the ring.

It seems like some with the Chicago Cubs are ascribing Eric Thames’ hot start to the season to the use of PEDs without actually saying so.

Thames, who spent the past handful of seasons slugging home runs in Korea, has been scorching hot to start the 2017 MLB season. He has six doubles and seven home runs for the Brewers, and produced three hits in each of the first two games of Milwaukee’s series with the Cubs this week.

Thames went 3-for-4 with an opposite field homer off John Lackey in the first game of the series on Tuesday. Lackey talked about Thames after the game and seemed to show suspicion about Thames’ success.

“You watch film on recent stuff and try to figure out a way, you know, to get him out. But I mean, really even the homer hit the other way, I mean, you don’t see that happen here very often. That’s kinda one of those things that makes you scratch your head,” Lackey said.

The video shared by the Chicago Tribune cuts off after he says “scratch your head,” which the pitcher did while winking. Perhaps Lackey gave more context than that, but the wink seemed like he was hinting something.

Cubs pitching coach Chris Bosio also raised suspicion by grouping Thames in the same conversation as noted PED users Barry Bonds and Manny Ramirez. To be fair, Bosio was asked by 670 The Score’s Mully & Hanley Wednesday about Thames in the context of Starling Marte’s PED suspension.

Five surprise MLB players off to great starts

  Five surprise MLB players off to great starts There are some pretty standard names if you look near the top of the MLB statistical leaderboards two weeks into the season. Bryce Harper, Ryan Braun, Francisco Lindor, and Freddie Freeman are all pretty big stars who have gotten off to good starts.However, there are a few other names on that list who, at first glance, don’t seem to belong in the same category as those star players. The numbers don’t lie, though.These five players may not have big names, but they’ve definitely been among the most successful players early on in 2017.

“Well, the bottom line is [Thames] has hit the ball and we gotta figure out a way to get him out. All that other stuff, I’ll let other people worry about. But he’s doing stuff that I haven’t seen done for a long time.

“You start thinking about Ken Griffey Jr., Manny Ramirez when he went to the Dodgers, Barry Bonds … You’re talking about some of the greatest players to ever play this game. So, yeah, it’s probably a ‘head scratcher’ because nobody knows who this guy is. And when he was here before … yeah, his body has changed. But, like I said, I’ll leave that to everyone else and we’re just gonna try to worry about how to pitch him better and get him out.”

Bosio also said one of Thames’ hits was an eyebrow-raiser.

The league is doing its due diligence as Thames was subjected to a random drug test earlier this week.

Though the Cubs have a right to be surprised by Thames’ success to start the season, they need to be careful with what they’re saying. They didn’t like it when Jake Arrieta faced similar accusations while he was dominating, so they should know what it’s like to be on the receiving end of things and how unfair that can be.
