I’m needy and have an extra ticket. How’s that for a sales pitch?
Month: May 2012
One of the less plausible rumors you’ll see. Dale Sveum isn’t bothered by Kerry Wood or Pat Listach, Alfonso Soriano has sore knees, and ground-breaking in Mesa is scheduled.
A day after the Cubs’ minor league bats exploded, they mostly fell silent.
I beat 66% of you last time, which makes me feel like a big man.
Another series win against an excellent team. Are you thinking thoughts right now? It’s dangerous, but I’m thinking thoughts right now.
The Cubs could lock up a fifth straight series win or tie today against the Braves.
As you might expect, Epstein is all positive right now, but he’s busy with Draft preparations.
They’ll be playing some music together in June. Kerry Wood is gruff, Starlin Castro is good, and mock drafts are flying.
A big first baseman in the Cubs’ system just set a record, and it’s not the guy you think.
The offense left their bats at home tonight.
The Cubs are going for a three-game winning streak, and another series win over a top team.
The latest on the speculation/analysis side of the rumor game.
The Braves were impressed and so was a scout, who compares Samardzija to Josh Johnson.
His first visit to Wrigley Field was a doozy.
Marmol might get his job back at some point. Jeff Samardzija wasn’t throwing at Jason Heyward, Adrian Cardenas might get a start, and the infield defense is improving.
The Cubs’ minor league teams all won yesterday on the strength of pitching, pitching, pitching.
Whoa, the Cubs are taking down the Braves now, too?
So your team is really awesome, huh? Cubbie bear don’t care.
It’s another chance to win money and beat me.
He’ll take over for Blake DeWitt as the lefty back-up infielder, but hopefully he’ll (1) play a bit more and (2) hit a bit better.
And that’s actually good news.
Keep your pizza to yourself, folks. Travis Wood will probably be sent down today, Ian Stewart was mighty stick yesterday, and Blake DeWitt could stick around.
Junior Lake is back, and back with authority.
Walk-off win! Series win! Smiles aplenty!
Pre-Gamin’: Dodgers v. Cubs (1:20 CT) – Lineups, Broadcast Info, etc. (UPDATE: Probable Weather Delay)
Travis Wood makes his Cubs debut, and he faces an old Cubs favorite.
This could be the end of the line for the Cubs and DeWitt.
