Everybody’s Flipping Their Biscuit About Anthony Rizzo Leaving Tonight’s Iowa Cubs Game (UPDATE: Sore Wrist)
We don’t know what’s happening yet, but it’s possible Rizzo is on his way to Chicago.
That’s a dirty dozen, folks.
Which would sound worse: twelve straight losses, or four straight series sweeps?
And I’m not sure why. Rafael Dolis needs to stop giving up walks, Bryan LaHair and Starlin Castro need to start taking them, and the Cubs’ streak gets historical perspective.
What will Javier Baez’s arrival in Peoria mean for Marco Hernandez?
Losing in undramatic fashion is for losers. Losing in crazy style is for winners! Er, wait…
It will be exciting to see the kid in action. Well, the box score at least, if you can’t catch the games.
I got 10, do I hear 11?
Dale Sveum wants to commit to Joe Mather for a little while. Ryan Dempster knows which way the trade winds blow, and Carlos Marmol is rehabbing.
A new mock draft changes things up for the Cubs, who had some nice starting pitching in the minors yesterday.
When two awful offenses square off, you get a pitchers’ duel by default.
Ryan Dempster can break two losing streaks tonight – the Cubs’, and his own.
Obsessive Wrigley Renovation Watch: Tom Ricketts and Rahm Emanuel Seem to Believe a Deal Will Still Get Done
Emanuel finally said something positive, and Ricketts just gave a long interview.
Another pundit thinks Dempster is likely to be traded. There’s a lot going on in Cubs Hell, Anthony Rizzo’s ranking is rising, and a step back in the time machine.
What might an Anthony Rizzo promotion mean for Junior Lake and Josh Vitters?
The latest rumors touching on the Chicago Cubs, including bits on trade pieces and an unconfirmed nugget on Jorge Soler.
A look at 10 kids whom the Cubs could take with their first round pick next month.
Obsessive Wrigley Renovation Watch: Tom Ricketts is “Cool With Whatever Timing” for Conversation with Rahm Emanuel
Ricketts is playing it cool, but sources say he still hasn’t had a chance to speak with Mayor Rahm Emanuel.
Hooray for off-days! Jeff Samardzija spits truth, Carlos Marmol looks good, and Javier Baez might be promoted.
Another name for you to know.
Nine losses in a row, friends. Have I told you lately that I’m glad you keep coming back?
Can we stop this thing at eight games? Please?
Details on the time line of the renovation, alternative funding ideas, and Ricketts’ comments on working with Mayor Emanuel in light of … what happened.
Whatever you think about Soriano, know this: he’s been the Cubs’ best hitter for a month now.
Some teams might think so. Dale Sveum dug Travis Wood’s performance, Bryan LaHair is working on his swing, and the Cubs still need pitching depth.
