Author Castle visits with the Tribune Company overseers and profiles team president Andy MacPhail, GM Jim Hendry, former manager Dusty Baker, and the byplay with Cubs players, including Derrek Lee, Greg Maddux, Mark Prior, and Kerry Wood, providing a tapestry of emotions that show the human side of baseball’s most lovable team.
