Stupid freaking Reds. Stupid freaking Dusty Baker. And really stupid freaking Joey Votto. His entire career will be built on world-beating the Cubs. You’ll see. But today’s enhancement takes a[Read More…]
We hardly knew ye. As expected, the Cubs designated right-hander Luis Vizcaino for assignment on Thursday to make room on the 25-man roster for Jeff Samardzija. According to ESPN.com, Chicago[Read More…]
Editor’s disclosure: I am a cat person (crud, I just lost some readers). So my thoughts here are probably tainted by my little snoopy, poopy, woopy, wittle, kitty… er, sorry.[Read More…]
Jeff Samardzija makes his way back to the big club today after pitching very well to start the year in AAA Iowa, and manager Lou Piniella says he’ll help out[Read More…]
Stupid Reds with their stupid young pitchers. Whatever. Dusty will exact revenge for us.
Apparently the Chicago Cubs will call up Jeff Samardzija tomorrow to help the ailing bullpen. The question, of course, is who is going to be gone? Neal Cotts is in[Read More…]
There was an interesting aside in the Sun-Times today about Milton Bradley. The focus was about how he hasn’t played much, how he pisses people off (they actually used “piss”[Read More…]
Unless that reliever is Carlos Marmol, I have a hard time believing another team is aggressively pursuing anyone else in the pen. But, hey, whatever. Cross your fingers for Neal[Read More…]
Welcome back to Chicago, Dusty. SLAP.
The early season struggles of the bullpen are nearly the only thing for folks to complain about, so naturally, they’re complaining. Specifically, the lone lefty in the pen, Neal Cotts,[Read More…]
Last time out, Chicago Cubs starter Rich Harden threw 92 pitches… in three innings. He struck out a ton of dudes, but was incredibly inefficient. Any time Harden struggles like[Read More…]
You can probably omit the “kind of” if you’re so inclined. St. Louis Cardinals manager Tony LaRussa has never been a favorite of Chicago Cubs fans, so pretty much anything[Read More…]

Chicago Cubs outfielder Milton Bradley was suspended for two games this weekend after “making contact” (I still didn’t really see it) with an umpire last week. The good news for[Read More…]
Just got word that Milton Bradley has been suspended for two games by MLB for making contact with umpire Larry Vanover on Thursday. I didn’t see much of a bump,[Read More…]
Or so MLB would have you believe. Rumors are swirling that Bradley faces a suspension for “bumping” umpire Larry Vanover after his 3-2, bases loaded, totally not a strike, third[Read More…]
Did anyone else see LOST this week, when Hurley commented to Miles that Dr. Pierre Chang – Miles’ father – was “a douche”? My friends and I looked at each[Read More…]
Chris Carpenter just can’t catch a break. Cardinals ace Chris Carpenter underwent a magnetic resonance imaging on Thursday that confirmed the 2005 NL Cy Young Award winner sustained a torn[Read More…]
I really hate the Cardinals. It’s gonna be a Cardinal-hating kind of day. But they don’t get the business in the box score today. That is reserved for Milton Bradley’s[Read More…]
