Baez and Bryant gone too

Anthony Rizzo

Heartbroken about the departure of my favorite Cub, Anthony Rizzo... I was there the last time he played for the Cubs. I didn't know he'd be traded the next day, but I suspected. That's why I took these pictures from my regular seats...

Margaret Larkin

 Thanks to Robert Feder for reporting this in today's column...

Birthday Boy

 I turned 58 yesterday. Had a great day. Lunch with Mom (look at the shirt she is wearing) and evening Cubs game with oldest son Tommy.
