Farthest Home Run of 2014
Anthony Rizzo off Ryan Vogelsong – 466 feet

Besides Colby Rasmus, no one crowds the plate quite like Anthony Rizzo. Vogelsong tried to run a change-up away from Rizzo here and just nope nope nope shouldn’t have done that.

Shortest Home Run of 2014
Luis Valbuena off Billy Buckner – 345 feet

This was the only game Billy Buckner pitched in last year.

Three Bold Predictions

  1. Javier Baez is sent back to Triple-A after he begins swinging at pitches when he isn’t even batting, endangering his teammates in the dugout.
  2. Jon Lester collects his first career base hit on Opening Night against St. Louis, demolishing a 102 MPH Trevor Rosenthal fastball onto Waveland Avenue for the vaunted walk-off dinger-complete game shutout combo. It will be his only hit of 2015.
  3. After realizing they are out of the playoff hunt come August, the Cubs keep their World Series hopes alive by attempting to compete in the Little League World Series. Despite a six home run game from Tommy La Stella and a dominating performance on the mound from Travis Wood, they lose to Jackie Robinson West in the regional championship on a walk-off wild pitch from Pedro Strop.
