LUKE STUCKMEYER: Opening day is Thursday. Hard to believe this will already be Anthony Rizzo's 10th year in the Cubs organization. It also might be his last. Rizzo's in the final year of his contract with the Cubs, and he says recent extension talks have stalled.

ANTHONY RIZZO: We've given a lot during this process here, and I think with the opening day deadline, we feel really strong about it. We've had enough time to talk and try to figure it out. I think once the season starts for me, personally, it's focused on baseball.

Like I've stated many times before, I love Chicago. I love the fans. I love what Wrigley field and being a Chicago Cub is all about. But obviously, it didn't work out thus far and that's OK. And like I said, I'm at peace with it.
