Apparently Cubs are in Field of Dreams game next year. Ross spilled the beans before attempting to un-say it.

In the original Shoeless Joe novel, there is a subplot that was cut out of the movie; a man falsely claims to have pitched for the World Champion Chicago Cubs.  He gets on to the field and Frank Chance puts him in but he can't get anyone out and I think his lie is revealed.

I wonder if the Cubs will put on throwback uniforms from that era for that game.  I sure hope they do, particularly if they're the road team and they wear the all-dark-blue uniform which looks so good.

It looks like the Cubs will be playing the Reds in next year's Field of Dreams game.

I doubt the Cubs will be announcing a ticket price increase for the 2022 season.  On second thought:

I was just thinking about that if I had gone up to Cincinnati to watch them this week.  Why pay major league prices to basically see a mostly Iowa Cubs lineup with the likes of Bote and Heyward sprinkled in?

Cubs play at Twins in two weeks.  The twins significantly elevate their ticket-prices when the Cubs are guests.  Heh heh, they aren't retracting their price-inflation either!  :)

You pays your money and you takes your chances, I guess.

From Kevin Goldstein's FanGraphs chat:

12:04    
>this guy<: Contreras and Hendricks are moving this winter, right? Cubs farm is like 2 years at least from bearing real fruit

12:05    
Kevin Goldstein: I mean, they have to field a team, right? I think they should listen on both. The notion that Contreras is someone you can build around is a weird narrative in the Chicago media.
