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.

Breaking: According to Jon Lester, John Lackey is off the "beer train."— Jesse Rogers (@ESPNChiCubs) September 28, 2018
Does that mean he's on the wagon?
Lester at 96 pitches. I say he has Lackey go tell Joe he's staying in.— Jesse Rogers (@ESPNChiCubs) September 28, 2018
I find it amusing that after an offseason of screaming about signing Lackey, followed by two years of screaming about how much everyone hates Lackey, now he's this lovable figure to Cubs twitter. It's an odd turn I was not expecting.— Brad Robinson (@bradrobinson8) September 28, 2018
