The Two Newest Cubs

The Cubs added two new players at the trade deadline and I've finally gotten around to make cards for them.

Alex Avila is the new Miguel Montero / David Ross, a veteran presence behind the plate and a mentor for Willson Contreras.  He is the fourth Cub this year with a last name that starts with the letter A.  I wonder what the record is for that?



He also looks like GI Joe with life-like hair.

Lefty reliever Justin Wilson also came over with Avila from the Tigers.

He's not been very impressive so far, having to yet record a 1-2-3 inning and giving up runs or blowing a save in each of his three Cub appearances.

With these two additions, 41 players have suited up thus far for the 2017 Cubs.
