The Cubs just slapped the White Sox like they were the Cubs getting slapped by some other team not named the Cubs.
Month: June 2012
Pre-Gamin’: Cubs v. White Sox (7:10 CT) – Lineups, Broadcast Info, etc. (You Want to See This Lineup)
Bryan LaHair. Right Field. The Cubs are making a statement.
Ryan Dempster … To the Disabled List (And a Dozen Other Moves Involving Soto, Wells, Maine and Castillo)
You immediately want to know the trade implications. Also: seriously, there are a bajillion other moves to report.
The Cubs’ top two pitchers are among the most talked about trade candidates in all of baseball.
Go see some top prospects for free.
The Cubs and ASU had planned on sharing the Cubs’ new Spring Training facility in Mesa, but that plan may be in danger.
Epstein sounds particularly excited about supplemental first rounder Pierce Johnson.
The Cubs are now 3-15 against lefty starters. That’s insane. Geovany Soto might be back today, Koyie Hill wants his freedom, and Reed Johnson defends Alfonso Soriano.
Running across the tarp during a rain delay so you can slide is fun for everyone … except the owner of the tarp.
See, Theo knows how to build a good organization, AMIRITE?
The Cubs’ll try again for that ever-elusive series win.
Soriano was booed for failing to run out a play yesterday, but Dale Sveum and Soriano think that’s unfair. (Plus video of the play.)
The Cubs continue to monitor Jeff Samardzija’s innings closely. Dale Sveum likes Luis Valbuena, Starlin Castro might get a day off, and the Cubs have announced Draft signings.
An optimistic take on the possible re-emergence of a prospect long thought done.
One-run game? Guaranteed Cubs loss.
Going for the series win against the Red Sox. Already.
There are only a few top 10 round picks left for the Cubs to sign.
Pitching well can only help the Cubs. Carlos Marmol has the closer job back, Luis Valbuena is the 3B starter, and the Cubs might carry three starters.
The Minor League Daily has a slightly different look, but the same (eh, probably more) information.
Bam, Red Sox. Bam.
I want to watch the Cubs crush the Red Sox today.
That ballpark chat? Yup. It had to do with trade possibilities. Also more on Dempster, Alfonso Soriano, Bryan LaHair, and more.
The Cubs Have Signed 4th Rounder Josh Conway, 5th Rounder Anthony Prieto, and Three Other Top Ten Picks
The Cubs have saved some money against their Draft pool, which will give them flexibility.
Castro’s got a new hitting coach, but his swing early approach might persist. Ian Stewart is seeing a specialist, and Theo Epstein is still offering thoughts.
Some cool sources of info for the Cubs’ short-season Low-A affiliate. Also: Javier Baez homered again. No big thing.
