That’s a five-game winning streak, boys and girls.
Month: May 2013
No international draft next year, and now your team is penalized even further if you exceed your bonus pool.
Believe it or not, the Cubs are going for a fifth straight win.
Everybody seems to see the Cubs going for Mark Appel in the Draft. Is he a threat to not sign? And how much will he want?

The wind is blowing, and the Cubs have a chance to win the Crosstown Classic today.

Abandon all hope ye who enter here.
It was a good night for the Cubs’ minor leagues, generally, and Arismendy Alcantara hit another homer. He’s now got more than Vogelbach, Soler, and Baez.
