The Cubs project to have the renovation/expansion/development completed before the start of the 2018 season.
Month: May 2014
Could the Cubs wind up going for a college bat after all? Or could they still land a top arm?
The Orioles could be the “leading team” if and when it comes time for the Cubs to consider dealing Samardzija.
Young power arms aplenty, and a wide variety of options. It could become very important in the near-term.
Thought experiment: If the Cubs somehow brought in some of the Blue Jays’ top prospects, where would they rank in the Cubs’ system?
The Cubs’ offense was absolutely stymied. Just about nothing positive there whatsoever.
Jake Arrieta will look to do in San Francisco what he did in San Diego last time out.
A little pre-game bullpen shuffle. Congrats to the Wright family, it would seem.
With a couple days digestion time, I feel pretty positively about the move to hire/sign Manny Ramirez as a player-coach at AAA Iowa. There’s risk, to be sure – Ramirez has been busted for using PEDs, and was something of a headache in his later years in Boston – but the upside is considerable. For […]
Will either be a significant piece in the long-run? Probably not, but you might as well take a crack when you’ve got the chance.
Despite a report to the contrary, there are plenty of indicators that the Blue Jays will be in.
Can you finish in the top 50% today in order to move on?
The Cubs are expected to start work on the new clubhouse very soon, and the added outfield signs don’t look too bad.
Occasionally, Cubs fans do get nice things. And it’s nice to be in a position to wonder which player is hotter, Baez or Bryant?
It’s just not OK for *you* to care. Winky face. No, but seriously. Thoughts on that, Kalish, Fujikawa, and more.
College baseball’s championship tournament is approaching, which means a great eyes-on opportunity for draft prospects.
Quite a bit happened while you were driving/boating/grilling/drinking/sleeping.
A thing happened today. It doesn’t really matter, but it matters because of social construction. SO GO NUTS!
Jeff Samardzija will totally get his first win of the year today, and then everyone will shut up.
Kalish had been struggling for a while, and the Cubs elect to stick with 13 pitchers.
Think you can be better than average tomorrow? That’s all it takes to move on. The you’ve got to do it again on Wednesday …
West Coast swing, in effect. The Cubs now get the NL’s best club. Wait: make that MLB’s best club.
Baez is actually hotter in his last ten games than Kris Bryant. And you know how hot Bryant’s been.
Today is Memorial Day, which has a very specific meaning. Also, Hammel’s hand, MLB’s leader, Lake’s homer, and more.
The impact of a coach at the big league level can be hard to see. In the minors, it may be much more prominent.
The Cubs came close in the 9th, but it’s a series split.
