I Took a Peak at the Cubs’ New Year’s Resolutions for 2016

I hope this doesn’t put me in Dutch with the Cubs, but I kind of lifted something when I was up there visiting their offices. I thought it was pretty innocuous, that I was just grabbing a piece of paper with the official letterhead. Turns out I had actually gotten an early preview of the team’s New Year’s resolutions. Some were really prescient and have already come to pass, but a great many will require a bit more time to see through.
