Wainwright thinks the Cubs should stop “babying” Jeff Samardzija.
Month: May 2012
He has two explanations. Sveum also says he looks at the standings, Anthony Rizzo is the future, and someone says the Cubs should blow up Wrigley Field.
Nice starts from Trey McNutt, Austin Kirk, and Kyler Burke tonight, and a nice combined effort from the Iowa bullpen.
Screw you, Cardinals. (Yup, I would have said the same thing regardless of the outcome.)
Cubs, Cardinals, ESPN. At least one of those things is awesome. The other two are what make tonight’s game worth/easy watching.
If the Cubs do choose to extend Matt Garza, what might it say about how soon they expect to be competitive?
Volstad is going to get at least one more start, but Dale Sveum admits he’s started to think about what changes might need to be made.
Headline-writing is fun. But seriously, Soriano’s bat is smaller, Jeff Samardzija’s pitch count remains small, and Shawn Camp hopes his workload remains big.
The day was a good one for a number of reasons.
At least it wasn’t a sweep, yo.
Jeff Samardzija is on a salvage mission, which feels out of place, him looking like a pirate and all.
The Red Sox could certainly use him. Chris Volstad still has no answers, Dale Sveum noticed Welington Castillo issues, and Carlos Marmol’s injury is not serious.
Paul Hoilman had hit in 24 straight games, but the streak has finally come to an end.
At least today’s loss wasn’t heart-breaking and sleep-depriving.
Somehow, the Cubs will try to recover from last night.
A day too late, probably. Welington Castillo was rough behind the plate, the Cubs want to extend Matt Garza, and James Russell wants to start.
The Iowa Cubs were playing late last night, too … but only because they are in California right now.
Mommy, I want off the roller coaster…
Matt Garza is back, and the Cubs are headed to Miller Park.
My lineup is superior to yours. You should probably not even try. Actually, no, you really should try, because it helps the site.
Rumor: The Cubs Could Keep Matt Garza – Even Without an Extension – in Anticipation of Competing in 2013
This would be a surprising approach, given what we’ve presumed about the Cubs’ approach to the next few years.
Prepare to smile about the Cubs’ efforts. Teams are still annoyed by the LED board, the Braves compliment the Cubs, and Kerry Wood will not be punished for something or other.
Gerardo Concepcion had his best start of the year yesterday, and so did Randy Wells (though that isn’t saying much). Plus mock draft goodness.
An analysis of just what has driven Bryan LaHair’s success so far this year, and where he might be going.
The Cubs’ star shortstop is under control for four more years, but that doesn’t mean extension talks don’t make sense.
Alderman Tom Tunney is willing to get on board with renovations, so long as some conditions are met.
