The Padres are still mad offline about Rizzo’s slide/collision.
#WeAreBack, Montero says.
Wow: Cubs Reportedly Optioning Kyle Schwarber to AAA Iowa (UPDATE: Heyward to DL, Zagunis Coming Up)
A chance for Schwarber to reset and clear his head. Roster flurry coming.
For now, there’s little reason to change things up. For now.
Russell’s wife also will not speak to MLB. That, Joe Maddon’s perverse enjoyment of the season, Cubs injuries, and much more.
Ian Happ, 50-home-run power? Well, currently: yes.
Hey, there’s some good news. Little gets a slightly under slot signing bonus.
That was a bad loss, my friends.
Get secure, dudes. He looks good. Also: his tagging talent isn’t solely about natural gifts. A whole lot of thought goes into it, too.
MLB let Rizzo know that he’d violated the rules with his collision on Monday, but he won’t be punished. So he can keep on raking.
Just try to elevate the ball against Mike Montgomery. I DARE YOU.
That Ian Happ power is showing from both sides of the plate. And I love it.
That’s a winning streak, ladies and gentlemen!
Anthony Rizzo is unstoppable as a leadoff hitter.
That’s kinda odd. The Cubs have been adamant that Rizzo’s slide/collision was legal, and that struck me as correct.
As an opponent, this is really the best outcome you can possibly hope for.
Wade Davis helped the Cubs close out their first back-to-back wins in a couple weeks. And he’s been really good. That, and much more.
It was a hard, aggressive play, but I don’t think there was anything dirty there. But I understand the Padres being upset.
Hey, the Padres aren’t invincible!
