Are we looking at an early-season statistical fluke, or the beginning of a marked change in Byrd’s ability?
Month: April 2012
Even though the Cubs won’t face him this week. Ozzie Guillen returns from suspension to face the Cubs, a Jorge Soler (non)update, and some Cubs/Cards tickets.
Ryan Cuneo had a huge night for Peoria, Matt Szczur had a huge night for Daytona, and Javier Baez went cycling.
I took in two Cubs games last week, one as friend, one as foe. Both games were a blast, and not just because the Cubs won them both.
The Mayor may be pushing for limitations imposed by Wrigley’s landmark status to be relaxed, paving the way for the Cubs to generate more dollars.
With Jacoby Ellsbury out for an undetermined amount of time, the Red Sox could be looking for an outfielder. But would Marlon Byrd even make sense?
Yesterday’s starter is as upset about his rough start to the year as we are. Marlon Byrd is a “black hole,” Rich Thompson could be available, and Burt Hooten was going to be awesome.
The Cubs’ minor league teams played a bevy of extra innings yesterday, and Tony Campana went deep. Like, for realsies.
The Cubs drop their third straight series, and never really had a chance today.
The Cubs go for their first series win of the year today, and man, what a sweet series win it would be. Dale Sveum busts out the zany lineup today.
Castro worked so hard on his defense this offseason that the errors really hurt. Chris Volstad explains his rough inning, Dale Sveum defends his relievers, and I sub in for Luke.
Starlin Castro’s good and bad sides were on display today, and the Cardinals did what they do.
Chris Volstad gets start number two, and, while the first time out wasn’t awful, he could stand to be a lot better today.
Big-time prospects Brett Jackson, Welington Castillo, and Marco Hernandez all went deep yesterday. So did Anthony Rizzo. Twice.
Javier Baez had an issue yesterday, Jeff Samardzija got too comfortable yesterday, and Dale Sveum explains why he bats lefties back-to-back.
Now that’s how you rain on the Cardinals’ World Series parade.
The rains in Spain stay mainly in St. Louis. We’ll see whether this game gets off or not.
The Chicago Cubs’ President of Baseball Operations says more than he usually does, but still doesn’t give a clear picture of what’s going to happen. He might not yet know.
My lineup will dominate yours. But you should still sign up anyway.
The Cards will celebrate their WS win today, in front of the Cubs. Matt Garza is mad at himself, Dave Sappelt is working hard, and Dave McKay is getting a ring.
Anthony Rizzo, among others, could already be poised to force the Cubs’ hand in the next month.
I will go to every game for the rest of the season.
The Cubs will try to leave Wrigley Field with a win. Just one. Please.
I’ll be at the game today in the bleachers, and I don’t just want to catch any old home run ball. I’ve got an order of preference.
Trey McNutt has a nice start, as does Casey Coleman. Josh Vitters keeps hitting, and so does Adrian Cardenas.
The Cubs’ center fielder is scuffling, and could be on the clock. Ryan Dempster blames himself for yesterday, and Ryan Braun isn’t being douchey enough.
