In their second season as a Cubs affiliate, the Myrtle Beach Pelicans have captured their second straight Mills Cup title as the Carolina League champs.

Awesome stuff. I’ve already said it many times, but it continues to be true so I continue to repeat it: the Pelicans are a class organization from top to bottom and they’ve been incredible when it comes to embracing their relationship with the Cubs and those of us who write about the team.

Congratulations on another win and good luck going for the three-peat next year (do I owe Pat Riley any money for that?).
