Can’t get enough of the Brewers!
Month: August 2012
Brenly’s most recent four-year contract is up at the end of this year, but it sounds like he’d like to return to WGN and the Cubs.
Chicago Cubs Reportedly to Acquire Catcher Anthony Recker (UPDATE: For Blake Lalli; Scott Maine DFA’d)
The soon-to-be-29-year-old catcher could be up with the Cubs in September.
There is a window before which teams are not supposed to discuss re-affiliation. We haven’t reached that window yet.
If Volstad pitches well through the end of the year, does he get a contract for next year? A rotation spot?
Will the Cubs regret not being able to sign Rhett Wiseman? Plus the usual scores and stories.
Even if the game had gone the full nine, the Cubs were taking this one.
Chris Volstad takes the ball in the rubber game.
The production is creeping up while the strikeouts are creeping down. It’s still a tiny sample size, and the changes are incremental. But it’s something.
The Cubs* are going to the playoffs! Well, the Hawks, anyway.
Hooray for Brett Jackson, boo for almost everyone else.
More youth on display by both teams.
He wasn’t trying to rip ’em, but he did. The Red Sox/Dodgers deal is done (and still crazy), a roster move is forthcoming, and Dale Sveum doesn’t want to shut Jeff Samardzija down.
A whoops moment worked in the Smokies’ favor last night.
Adrian Gonzalez, Carl Crawford and Josh Beckett are about to go to the Dodgers.
Super Joe gets a game winner.
While he’s officially cleared to pitch in the Cubs’ system, MLB declined to confirm that Paniagua is 22-years-old.
Joe Mather: lead-off hitter.
His season at second base so far is reaching historical levels. And it makes him totally worth a starting spot.
Jeff Samardzija says next year is going to be “crazy.” Jorge Soler is humble, the White Sox can’t find fans, and I’m a Cubs infielder. A bad one.
We’ve long known that batting average isn’t the best of the hitting stats, but here’s a good example of why.
The 26-year-old righty reliever has excellent numbers at AAA this year.
With a ‘spy cam’ being installed at every ballpark in the system, minor leaguers will never know when the bosses are watching.
There are nine days left before the nominal waiver trade deadline …
Youth isn’t helping, but he doesn’t like his players’ approach at the plate. The Cubs have pulled into “second place” in the reverse standings.
The Daytona Cubs are raising some money with a unique promotion. Also, Ben Wells threw a scoreless inning yesterday. Yes, that Ben Wells.
