It is hard to imagine seeing Anthony Rizzo playing in any other jersey going forward besides the Chicago Cubs one. He has been one of the most important players in the history of the team for a variety of reasons. He has been productive on the field, helped them end the 108-year curse, and has been stellar in the community. When people think of the Cubs, Anthony Rizzo is one of the first people that should be coming to their mind. When he retires, they should retire his number and build him a statue.
The Chicago Cubs might lose Anthony Rizzo after the 2021 season is over.
Theo Epstein was a big part of Rizzo’s development. He was there when Rizzo was drafted to the Boston Red Sox and he was the one who acquired him in a trade. Ever since then, Rizzo has become one of the key pieces to a championship team. They built a very good team around him that made many playoff appearances and had a World Series title.
