The Ex-Cub Factor

One in an occasional series tracking former Cubs.

1. Henry Blanco

Popularly known as Hank White, Blanco is the bullpen coach for the Nationals.

2. Jim Riggleman.

Riggs will have to interview to win the permanent job of managing the Reds going forward into next season. While the team has performed better under him than his predecessor, he's not exactly up-to-speed on today's game. Perhaps the team will take a look at Fredi Gonzalez, a formerly old-school manager who has learned his lessons.

3. Dexter Fowler.

Cardinals still owe the dude $50 million. Does he have a future in St. Louis?

4. Justin Grimm.

He's "rebuilding himself" in Seattle.

5. John Lackey.

Was back at Wrigley taking in the game Thursday night.

Does that mean he's on the wagon?
