Colin Kaepernick... as a Chicago Cub?

Although I picked the Baltimore Ravens to defeat the San Francisco 49ers this weekend, citing Colin Kaepernick's inexperience as a key reason, there is no denying his talent. I love this guy and think his future will be amazing if he avoids injury. Of course for Chicago Cubs fans, like me and Speedgeek, Super Bowl XLVII will be a little tougher to watch if Kaepernick does come through and lead San Francisco to victory. Imagine having that arm in our rotation...

The thought of Kaepernick in a Cubs uniform, throwing a baseball instead of a football, might seem strange. Yet it isn't completely outrageous. The Cubs drafted Kaepernick in 2009, hoping to convince him to sign and leave football behind. Hey, it worked for Jeff Samardzija!

It's pretty funny that the Cubs drafted a player based on his high school pitching and his college football action. But it's clear now that Kaepernick could've been a star in any sport he picked. It's just too bad it wasn't baseball.
