It recently occurred to me that all my favorite Cubs players are now former Cubs players.
Aramis moved north to Milwaukee. Pena returned south to the Rays. Ted Lilly is still with L.A.. Derrek Lee is straddling the line of retirement, Jim Edmonds is already there. Not to mention, no more De-Ro, Sweet Lou or Ryno for that matter.
So the question becomes, who is my favorite current Cub?
My answer: the funny man from north of the boarder, Ryan Dempster, who I’ve long been a fan of for all he does both on and off the field.
Who’s your No.1 Cub?
