2024 Cub #42

It has been almost three weeks since the Cubs added a new player to the roster.  That has to be a record for this season.  That's not to say that there weren't changes to the active roster over that time.  There were plenty.  But they involved players that had already been with the team and were sent down to Iowa.  The Chicago Iowa shuttle has been pretty active.

The new player is catcher Tomas Nido.  The Cubs picked him up off of the Met's scrap heap.  The team is looking for more production out of the backstop position.  Yan Gomes was just not doing that this year and was released.  Nido was acquired and played in Friday's game against, ironically, the Mets.

The 42 Cubs make up a nice 6x7 mosaic.  I've updated it to include the Topps card for any player that got one in series two instead of using my homemade cards.

  1. Nice card. He'll probably never get a physical one as a Cub.

    Nido's not much of a hitter but he'll give you good defense and he's maybe the best bunter in the game now. Hope he works out well for you; I always liked him.
