    Cubs historical sleuthing: 1950s edition

    This is a fantastic color photo from the era, with good color balance (including the fact that the infield dirt was gray back then) and outstanding detail. Reason No. 2 this is not 1959: The Cubs are wearing plain white uniforms, no pinstripes. The Cubs began wearing pinstripes in 1957, so it has to be earlier than that. The Cubs are playing the Cardinals.

    4 Chicago Cubs players who don't deserve to be on 2023 40-man roster

    As pitchers and catchers report to Spring Training next week for the Chicago Cubs, the attention will turn to the 40-man roster as players on the fringe of the roster compete for a spot on the team's Opening Day roster. The Cubs revealed on Monday that they will have 32 non-roster invites included in their Spring Training roster and there are several players from that list that have a strong chance at making the Opening Day Roster. Assuming that one or more of those players make the Cubs' Opening Day roster, there will be a need to create space on the team's 40-man roster.
