Friends Of The Site

People running blogs aren't supposed to credit the competition. But they make me who I am. And when they post all the news before I do, they force me to get creative, which is my racket anyway.

The people up and down the Cubs chain are also indisensable. From broadcasts, interviews, responses to tweets. All of these make my efforts of more value to you, my readers. They have done a great job, and should continue to in the future.
Some have left the pipeline. Onward and upward to these site friends.
Robbie Aaron, Nathan Baliva, Nathan Barnett, Keaton Gillogly, Darin Pritchett,  Wayne Randazzo,  Mike Safford, and the others I didn't include on the list.
Thanks to all the announcers, regardless your parent club.

With the 2016 season, The Zygote 50 is expanding its draft coverage. While the initial goal will be to mock the draft through the Cubs first pick, I might go through three rounds, which would include a pair of Cubs selections.
Follow the latest draft coverage where you see "Feeling A Draft" or "Mocking The Draft.
