Rodney takes Zac Rosscup’s spot in the bullpen, and Brian Schlitter’s spot on the 40-man roster.
Offense overwhelmed, pitching bombed out. Let’s imagination dance!
We promise, the podcast is mostly about baseball. But, yeah, there’s a lot of chicken in there.
The Cubs get a tough one today in Madison Bumgarner, but it’s winnable. Every game is, after all.
He’s looked good there so far, and he made another wickedly smooth play last night.
Today’s lineup looks crazy, but it all makes sense.
Soriano threw a scoreless inning last night.
The 22-year-old infielder has been through so much, and presents so much near-term and long-term upside.
The Giants (obviously), Cardinals, and Pirates all won yesterday. The middle of those teams continues to make things particularly un-fun.
Cubs didn’t quite get the timely hits, and couldn’t hold down the Giants the third time through the order.
Kyle Schwarber leads off against Jake Peavy, and Starlin Castro gets another start.
Ross will be out at least three days, or up to a week.
It’s tough to get much higher. Last night’s win was huge.
A couple changes to his stance and approach and Castro could be turning things around.
Jinxes and curses are just words. Great pictures and fun moments are real.
Eloy Jimenez has the body and approach of a big-time power hitter. It could be coming.
The Cubs are still behind in the NL Central by 6.5 games, though they’re now just 2.0 behind the Pirates.
Things got a little dicey in the later innings, but the Cubs had built a big enough lead for it to hold up.
Jake Arrieta and the Cubs start a West Coast swing. Big, big games this week.
