Cubscast Mesa: The Lighter Side, What the Cubs are watching on TV

Addicted to The Bachelor? Can’t get enough of The Blacklist? Have a soft spot for 1990s sitcoms? You’re not alone.

Throughout the baseball season, Cubs players spend countless hours on planes or in hotels. Thanks to subscription services like Netflix and Amazon Prime, they’re still able to keep up with their favorite TV shows while they’re on the road. We asked Cubs players and coaches what their favorite programs were and got some interesting answers.

We’ll be posting videos and stories from Sloan Park all spring, so make sure you’re watching the blog and our Twitter account, @cubsvineline.

Cubscast Mesa: The Cubs are setting a positive tone in camp

The Cubs finished on a strong note in 2014 and were riding a huge wave of momentum as they entered Spring Training. New veteran additions have joined with the organization’s unmatched young talent to make the Cubs the talk of the Cactus League. We sat down with some of the new and old players to find out what the feeling is like in camp and how it differs from the feeling in previous years.

We’ll be posting videos and stories from Sloan Park all spring, so make sure you’re watching the blog and our Twitter account, @cubsvineline.

Cubscast Mesa: The Lighter Side, If I could have one talent or superpower

Major League Baseball players are blessed with all sorts of talents. Most mere mortals would give anything to be able to turn around a 98 mph fastball or to be able to throw said 98 mph fastball. But even the Cubs best athletes can’t do everything.

When we sat down with the team during Spring Training, we asked the guys which special talent or superpower they wish they had. The answers are enlightening.

We’ll be posting videos and stories from Sloan Park all spring, so make sure you’re watching the blog and our Twitter account, @cubsvineline.
