Let’s set some realistic expectations for new Cubs catcher Yan Gomes

Set to turn 35 next summer, Yan Gomes was a peculiar candidate to get a two-year deal, especially at a $13 million price tag.

Who will bat leadoff for the 2022 Chicago Cubs?

Since Dexter Fowler’s two-year stint with the Chicago Cubs drew to a close after the 2016 season, the team has employed a plug-and-play approach when it comes to the leadoff spot, to limited success.

Chicago Cubs: Catching looks like a long-term question mark

In 2021, the lack of depth at the catcher position reared its ugly head for the Chicago Cubs.
