It’s still a series win, so that’s good.
Month: April 2012
I’m not sure I can even bring myself to think about the possibility of a sweep…
Boom. Television’d. The Cubs won another insane one last night, Tony Campana wants to race Nyjer Morgan, and Mike Matheny thinks everything is tragic.
The big Cubs weren’t the only one winning in a walk-off yesterday.
Did that really just happen again?
How about a two for two, eh?
Isn’t it a bit early to be ripping on Dale Sveum’s lineup choices and bench usage?
The Cubs would supply the other necessary $150 million on their own, but with some help extended in raising the money.
Joe Mather has a nickname that I hadn’t heard before. Bryan LaHair’s at bat last night was awesome, Kerry Wood might soon throw off the mound, and the Cubs hope to keep Rodrigo Lopez.
Jonathan Mota pulls off a rare feat. And Brett Jackson is no longer interested in striking out.
Holy come-back, walk-off, Batman!
Another chance to get off the series schnide, and it’s always nice when that chance comes against the Cardinals.
Soto isn’t the only catcher expected to be available this Summer, but he might be the best.
The big righty will join the Cubs’ bullpen today.
The Cubs’ shortstop is fine after taking a pitch off the arm. Dale Sveum defends yanking Bryan LaHair, the Cubs are watching Brett Jackson closely, and we expect a roster move today.
AAA Iowa lefty Chris Rusin and A-ball right PJ Francescon were dominant yesterday.
Another series loss for the Cubs, who drop the bookends of their three-game set with the Reds.
Randy Wells and Tony Campana make their first starts for the Cubs this year.
As expected, even without Marlon Byrd in the picture, Jackson will have to wait. Jed Hoyer discusses the Byrd trade, and Ryan Dempster’s DL stint is precautionary.
Without Tony Campana, the Iowa Cubs are lost. Or, well, actually, they just lost.
Marlon Byrd Traded to Red Sox – Trade Details Yet to Be Announced (UPDATE: Probably for Bowden and PTBNL)
The Marlon Byrd era in center field is at a close.
Even after everything, it still feels good to watch the Cubs win, doesn’t it?
The dismantling wheels might already be in motion.
The Dempster part isn’t a “whoa,” but the Campana part certainly is.
It’s not often that you get a chance to end a six-game losing streak. That makes today special.
I’m sure it’s not easy to do these days. Dale Sveum defends Marlon Byrd, the Cubs’ offense is woeful, and Angel Guzman is in some trouble.
