And it’s a sweep for the bad guys. Bummer.
Surprise: the Cubs game is very early today, kicking off at 11:40am CT. Put those brooms away, Fish.
Dale Sveum is hopeful that he’ll have his 8th inning guy back tomorrow.
It’s no secret. Dale Sveum says where a guy hits doesn’t matter, we’re still waiting on compensation to the Padres, and someone says Jim Hendry stole his great ideas.
The Tennessee pitching staff continues to impress, and Peoria wants to dump candy on you from a helicopter. This is really happening.
Matt Garza got slapped around tonight, and the Cubs’ bats did no slapping of their own.
The Cubs have lost three in a row, but it only takes one win to start the turn around process.
I’m looking to give away a couple tickets to games next week, where you can sit with me. That is either a plus, or a huge drawback.
Matt Garza extension talks, Ryan Dempster trade talks, Bryan LaHair value talks, Jorge Soler what-the-heck-is-up talks, and more.
The Mayor wants to make sure everyone knows he’s in this for the taxpayers, and Phil Rosenthal says Chicago needs to avoid becoming Boston.
The former Chicago Cubs starter is ready to move on in Miami.
The Cubs have been successfully trolled. Dale Sveum defends his use of Rafael Dolis last night, the defense makes no excuses, and Alfonso Soriano’s number drop further.
Oliver Zapata was brought up to Peoria as a fill-in for Reggie Golden. All he’s done since then is destroy all comers.
Ryan Dempster pitched well again. But, so far in 2012, that doesn’t really matter.
Kerry Wood has headed back to Chicago to get treatment for a shoulder issue that, it turns out, was bothering him in Spring Training.
The Cubs are an afterthought for tonight’s game in Miami, what with Ozzie Guillen returning. Steve Clevenger draws a start, but Dale Sveum’s batting order continues to perplex.
BN’er TWC hooks us up with a variety of ways to follow the Cubs’ Minor League teams this year on the web and iPhone.
Are we looking at an early-season statistical fluke, or the beginning of a marked change in Byrd’s ability?
Even though the Cubs won’t face him this week. Ozzie Guillen returns from suspension to face the Cubs, a Jorge Soler (non)update, and some Cubs/Cards tickets.
Ryan Cuneo had a huge night for Peoria, Matt Szczur had a huge night for Daytona, and Javier Baez went cycling.
I took in two Cubs games last week, one as friend, one as foe. Both games were a blast, and not just because the Cubs won them both.
The Mayor may be pushing for limitations imposed by Wrigley’s landmark status to be relaxed, paving the way for the Cubs to generate more dollars.
With Jacoby Ellsbury out for an undetermined amount of time, the Red Sox could be looking for an outfielder. But would Marlon Byrd even make sense?
Yesterday’s starter is as upset about his rough start to the year as we are. Marlon Byrd is a “black hole,” Rich Thompson could be available, and Burt Hooten was going to be awesome.
The Cubs’ minor league teams played a bevy of extra innings yesterday, and Tony Campana went deep. Like, for realsies.
The Cubs drop their third straight series, and never really had a chance today.
