Madison Bumgarner always seems to own the Cubs.
Month: August 2012
The Cubs are 31 games under .500 on the road, but a game over .500 at home. Is that just a fluke, or does it say something about roster construction?
Will anything actually happen? I kind of doubt it. Dale Sveum says Josh Vitters will see less time, and the Cubs might soon see Roger Clemens.
The Iowa Cubs end their season not unlike the big team: with a really bad record.
The Ricketts family is investing in the community, and the connection to renovations at Wrigley Field are probably not non-existent.
A couple reasons, at least. Anthony Rizzo’s slump, Jeff Samardzija’s shut-down, Theo Epstein’s failure, and Jorge Soler’s instruction.
The Boise Hawks were dominant in the second half of the season, but they had just one All-Star.
Samardzija was great, but he got no love behind him.
The Cubs waived Maine, and the Indians said, “well sure, thanks, we’ll take him.”
Hyde had been the Cubs’ minor league field coordinator this year after coming over from the Marlins in December.
No Jorge Soler, but a good mix of names playing this Fall.
Two days left before the so-called waiver trade deadline. Will the Cubs do anything else this year? Plus other rumor-y-type-stuff.
Each says what you’d expect them to say, but it’s still nice to read.
He’s tied a David Eckstein record, which means Barney is officially as scrappy as Eckstein.
With Hurricane Isaac’s rain, will the Iowa Cubs actually be able to play in New Orleans any time soon? Might they have to move games to Iowa?
Gallardo bein’ Gallardo, Cubs bein’ Cubs.
Blake Parker in, Alex Hinshaw out.
Let’s get happy.
Based on his reported birthdate, Soriano was 30 when he signed with the Cubs. I’m assuming this was nothing more than a misspeak.
Castro will reportedly get a $6 million signing bonus, and no no-trade clause.
Specifically, at the tear-down by the front office (which is a nice way of saying he’s surprised at just how bad the Cubs are).
The minor league seasons have less than a week left.
Things got really ugly …
