Adam Warren has mixed feelings about his Cubs World Series ring

Adam Warren spent just over half a season with the Cubs before being sent back to the Yankees, but he’s still likely to get a ring from their World Series win in October because it’s customary for teams to give rings to everyone who played during the season.

College World Series Contender No. 4: North Carolina

This North Carolina roster features one of the best pitchers in the nation in J.B. Buskauskas, and there's not a single automatic out in the lineup.
