One of the players the Cubs chose in the draft this week is Garrett Schlecht.
The kid is from downstate Illinois (cough, Cardinals fan) and has a scholarship offer to play college ball at Middle Tennessee State, but that's not what caught my attention.
I speak German, and I'd like to provide a translation of what his last name "Schlecht" means in German. Are you ready for this...it means "bad."
That is so Cubs.
(No offense, kid. I'm sure you're a good player. I just had to point that out.)
