The tough luck Daytona Cubs finally get a win. Brett Jackson is on a strikeout-less streak. And don’t forget: Peoria’s insane(ly awesome) helicopter candy drop promotion is today.
Month: April 2012
This is undoubtedly a relief both for Castro and for the Chicago Cubs.
It’s Friday! Go party!
God’s Wrath Watch: Kerry Wood to the DL, Ryan Dempster Ailing, Scott Maine Called Up, Randy Wells Next
The pitching staff is suddenly in flux.
It’s Friday afternoon baseball at Wrigley Field. There’s a lot of good there, even if the Cubs are playing badly.
Theo Epstein once again suggests that a renovation at Wrigley Field is both necessary and advantageous for the Cubs.
Where he bats, how his back is, what he’s doing for charity. Jeff Samardzija and Dale Sveum discuss Shark’s poor outing, and Theo Epstein is scouting.
Anthony Rizzo continues to dominate, adding another two-homer game. On the whole, though, it was a rough night for Cubs’ Minor Leaguers.
Epstein reminds us all that the Cubs, and Cubs fans, are in the middle (well, the beginning, actually) of a very long process. So, we should try to relax.
And it’s a sweep for the bad guys. Bummer.
Surprise: the Cubs game is very early today, kicking off at 11:40am CT. Put those brooms away, Fish.
Dale Sveum is hopeful that he’ll have his 8th inning guy back tomorrow.
It’s no secret. Dale Sveum says where a guy hits doesn’t matter, we’re still waiting on compensation to the Padres, and someone says Jim Hendry stole his great ideas.
The Tennessee pitching staff continues to impress, and Peoria wants to dump candy on you from a helicopter. This is really happening.
Matt Garza got slapped around tonight, and the Cubs’ bats did no slapping of their own.
The Cubs have lost three in a row, but it only takes one win to start the turn around process.
I’m looking to give away a couple tickets to games next week, where you can sit with me. That is either a plus, or a huge drawback.
Matt Garza extension talks, Ryan Dempster trade talks, Bryan LaHair value talks, Jorge Soler what-the-heck-is-up talks, and more.
The Mayor wants to make sure everyone knows he’s in this for the taxpayers, and Phil Rosenthal says Chicago needs to avoid becoming Boston.
The former Chicago Cubs starter is ready to move on in Miami.
The Cubs have been successfully trolled. Dale Sveum defends his use of Rafael Dolis last night, the defense makes no excuses, and Alfonso Soriano’s number drop further.
Oliver Zapata was brought up to Peoria as a fill-in for Reggie Golden. All he’s done since then is destroy all comers.
Ryan Dempster pitched well again. But, so far in 2012, that doesn’t really matter.
Kerry Wood has headed back to Chicago to get treatment for a shoulder issue that, it turns out, was bothering him in Spring Training.
The Cubs are an afterthought for tonight’s game in Miami, what with Ozzie Guillen returning. Steve Clevenger draws a start, but Dale Sveum’s batting order continues to perplex.
