There are no questions about whether this young man will hit at AAA.
The big righty was excellent for the Cubs in the first half last year, and has been again this year.
Underwood to the DL, Null to High-A, and a new undrafted free agent signing.
The Cubs reportedly aren’t interested in Jon Niese anymore. Any other pitcher trades make sense? A familiar face, perhaps? Plus so much more from the rumor mill.
Jorge Soler’s coming back from an ankle injury, and the Cubs could use his lively bat.
Be bummed and frustrated for a little while, and then move on.
Dewees was the Cubs’ second rounder this year, but he’s closer to a first round talent.
Rumor bits to discuss, together with roster moves and frustrating baseball.
The Cardinals series ends with a resounding thud. What a disastrous weekend that was.
The Cubs get a chance to salvage the series tonight.
Ramirez gives the Cubs another late-inning option (in theory), and Wada has shoulder inflammation.
Is Niese the guy he was a few years ago? Or is here purely a back-end depth guy? And if the latter, how much is he really worth?
Kudos to Costas for making things right, and not avoiding the issue.
The Cubs once before lost four in a row this year, and they ended it in St. Louis.
You might not know the names yet, because it there are not any huge bonus babies. But there are some intriguing guys to follow.
One of the Cubs’ best relievers in 2014 has been out since mid-April.
Not much good to say about this one. Moving along.
Have to put last night’s loss to bed. Donn Roach leads the way in the turnaround tonight. Right?
