Geovany Soto continues to rake (from the 8-hole), and he’s starting to make me wonder why he wasn’t included in the All-Star snub discussion, let alone the actual All-Star discussion.[Read More…]
Now that Cliff Lee is off the trade market, Chicago Cubs starter Ted Lilly becomes the best available lefty starting pitcher on the market, and remains one of the best[Read More…]
Despite going balls to the wall in their acquisition of Cliff Lee late yesterday, the Texas Rangers apparently aren’t done making moves. They might like to add a first baseman[Read More…]
Marlon Byrd raked, and Aramis Ramirez continues to be on fire, but there’s really only one story from this one – and it’s unfortunate.
One of the many pieces the Chicago Cubs would no doubt like to move is currently-restricted pitcher Carlos Zambrano. Still away from the team while he receives anger management treatment[Read More…]
Don’t get me wrong, I love any rumor tidbits I can get. But so far, while we’ve learned that the Chicago Cubs are very likely to be sellers, we’ve not[Read More…]
Well, I guess the Cubs aren’t going to win out for the rest of the season. Randy Wells had a nice outing, but Clayton Kershaw was just a bit better.[Read More…]
Assuming that the recent three-game sweep of the woeful Diamondbacks does not convince the Chicago Cubs’ brass that the team is magically delicious again, the Cubs will be looking to[Read More…]
Brian Schlitter is the latest Chicago Cub to come down with bad-performance-itis. I kid (sort of), but following his disastrous outing on Friday against the Reds, the Cubs discovered that[Read More…]
Did the Cubs actually just sweep a team? And did they do so by virtue of an offensive asplosion? Wha? Aramis Ramirez continued his mini hot streak (we’ll take it),[Read More…]
Even though the Chicago Cubs just managed to secure an AMAZING series victory – their first in 12 tries – the team is still so far behind in the NL[Read More…]
Scott Rolen has played the Chicago Cubs many, many times in his long career. He’s played a whole lot of games at Wrigley Field, and so when he speaks of[Read More…]
Holy smokes, the Chicago Cubs have won a series. If they can take two of three the rest of the year, they can totally get to 84 wins! But seriously,[Read More…]
The Chicago Cubs are looking to trade pitcher Ted Lilly and first baseman Derrek Lee, each of whom is a free agent at the end of this season. The rumor[Read More…]
Not the pumping-iron-with-angrily-tattooed-“love”-and-“hate”-knuckles type of working out, that is, just the throwing-the-baseball kind of working out. Though I could totally see him doing the former in an ill-lit apartment building[Read More…]
Yesterday the Cubs made a minor move, swapping relievers in their bullpen, trying to keep arms in shape. To freshen an overworked bullpen, the Cubs on Monday swapped one right-handed[Read More…]
Since May 28, and until yesterday… The Chicago Cubs have won just 12 times (34 games). The Cubs have won just one series (11 series). The Cubs have scored just[Read More…]
I’d almost forgotten how Diamondback pitching is to the Chicago Cubs’ offense as the Chicago Cubs’ offense is to every other team’s pitching. Kosuke Fukudome blew up (finally), and Geovany[Read More…]
Like the Cubs are now, I am on the road today, unable to offer an Enhanced Box Score for yesterday’s laugher (it would doubtlessly have lifted your spirits). It also[Read More…]
Cincinnati Reds manager Dusty Baker was in town for this weekend series against the Cubs, and that means the Chicago media was hungrily grabbing tons of quotes from the former[Read More…]
