The Cubs reportedly aren’t interested in Jon Niese anymore. Any other pitcher trades make sense? A familiar face, perhaps? Plus so much more from the rumor mill.
Be bummed and frustrated for a little while, and then move on.
Rumor bits to discuss, together with roster moves and frustrating baseball.
The Cardinals series ends with a resounding thud. What a disastrous weekend that was.
The Cubs get a chance to salvage the series tonight.
Ramirez gives the Cubs another late-inning option (in theory), and Wada has shoulder inflammation.
Is Niese the guy he was a few years ago? Or is here purely a back-end depth guy? And if the latter, how much is he really worth?
Kudos to Costas for making things right, and not avoiding the issue.
The Cubs once before lost four in a row this year, and they ended it in St. Louis.
One of the Cubs’ best relievers in 2014 has been out since mid-April.
Not much good to say about this one. Moving along.
Have to put last night’s loss to bed. Donn Roach leads the way in the turnaround tonight. Right?
Roach spot starts tonight in St. Louis, and Medina heads back down after a brief stay.
The Miami slugger has a broken hand, which mostly a bummer.

Losses like that are always frustrating, but especially when they come in St. Louis.
The Cubs had so, so many chances in this one. Two runs with all the baserunners they had is really disappointing.
