Shark goes out in style.
Month: September 2012
Jeff Samardzija’s season ends tonight … with him batting 8th.
Brett Jackson says he’d run through a wall for the Cubs. Jeff Samardzija isn’t thrilled about being shut down, and Dale Sveum doesn’t mind pouring it on.
The teams were clearly roleplaying – Cubs as Nats, Pirates as Cubs.
Samardzija’s start tomorrow will be his last of the season. It’s the right move.
Another meaningful game for at least one of the teams.
The Cubs place five in the top 100 overall, led by Javier Baez at number 24.
Last night’s rumble between the Cubs and Nationals wasn’t a bright spot for the Cubs, in a season full of non-bright spots.
Dale Sveum named only nine names that he sees as locks for the 2013 Opening Day roster. A couple prominent names were missing.
The Boise Hawks are down 0-1 in the Northwest League Championship Series.
I’d rather see some fight on the scoreboard.
At long last, the series ends.
Players will want to come to Chicago, DeRosa says. The only question is when the Cubs will be willing to spend money on them.
The Cubs continue to mine the undrafted depths for diamonds, even months after the Draft.
You wouldn’t like him when he’s angry. The young guys are struggling, Alfonso Soriano has some huge numbers, and a little prospect chatter.
Celebrate a Cubs* playoff victory!
The unstoppable force won.
The unstoppable force meets the immovable object.
He not only put up a huge line at Peoria, but has so far adjusted well to completely new surroundings.
