An Artistic Rendering of a Cubs Fan’s Wet Dream

It was amid the doldrums of 2012 that Theo Epstein & Co. started reshuffling the Cubs roster, not to win, but to paint a picture of the future. Starlin Castro was already there, firmly at short. Then exploded Anthony Rizzo, in June. Brett Jackson came next with his California cool (Josh Vitters, alas, doesn’t appear like he’ll quite make the cut). Almora, Soler and Baez will follow.

What if it works, this nucleus? What if the Cubs become… great? What if these guys are the guys?

Ahead of this weekend’s Cub Convention presentation of an artistic rendering of the future of Wrigley, we bring you an artist’s rendering, courtesy Drew Appleton, of a Cubs fan’s wet dream. It is, we assure you, far more dazzling than any Sheraton Hotel. We understand these images may be extremely painful for White Sox faithful, so consider yourselves warned.
