DateQuestionAnswer
2019-05-01 12:00:00 (link to chat)Very little is written about John Means. What can you tell us about his background and has anything changed recently to help fuel his recent major league success?
(CubbieBeat from Chi-Town)
Lefty with a good change basically. I wonder if these guys can have sustainable success but also tend to get overly enthused with them at times (Thomas Pannone most recently and wellllllll). Means peripherals really don't back up the early success either. (Jeffrey Paternostro)
