Hooray for small victories.
Month: September 2012
Sveum met with the vets yesterday to give them some offseason advice, but also get feedback on his season.
99 and counting.
Tonight’s the night for a win out West?
His errorless streak ends three outs shy of a new record. Of course it does.
The quintessential Cubs …
Go West, young men!
Each had an excellent season for the AA Tennessee Smokies.
He can’t get enough. Dale Sveum and Chris Volstad remain disconnected, Starlin Castro likes his strong arm, and when is a “sell” trade a good idea?
It’s a sweep for the Rockies.
A sweep is on the table today.
The Cubs’ GM says the team will be “active” in the free agent market, and needs starting pitching. So, are we excited?
It hasn’t really shown up on the stat sheet, though. Dale Sveum rues another bone-head play, and Albert Almora digs video.
The Miami Marlins elect to do something positive in an otherwise dismal season.
Another rainy loss in Colorado.
Game one went to the Rockies. Mission accomplished? Failed?
The Cubs will be pursuing pitching in the offseason, and a couple extra names could be on the free agent market.
Coming off of Tommy John surgery in March, the Cubs aren’t planning to push Vizcaino to the limits next year.
Dale Sveum says he already knows which guys he thinks will stick on the roster into next season. Does Theo know?
The rain couldn’t keep the Cubs from losing.
A question of fan morality.
Next great baseball movie? Just another baseball movie?
Albert Almora, Jorge Soler, and Dan Vogelbach come in for some love.
Campana is heading to Venezuela when the season ends. David DeJesus is realistic, Tyler Colvin is good-ish, and Alfonso Soriano probably got some coaching.
A FanGraphs write-up on a number of the top youngsters who played for the Hawks this year.
Yup. You read that correctly. In five previous seasons with the Cubs, Soriano received no outfield instruction.
