Er. Um. Apparently. Fielder had said he didn’t “remember” his delayed reaction after reliever Guillermo Mota, a former teammate, hit him with two outs in the ninth inning of the[Read More…]
Chicago Cubs catcher Geovany Soto has been out for, well, a long time with a strained oblique. Fortunately, he’s been rehabbing successfully (he went 1-2 in a rehab outing last[Read More…]
It’s awesome to score 12 and all, but it kind of feels like a waste on a day that 1 would have done the trick. Still, feels good. But damn[Read More…]

When Manny Ramirez returned from a 50-game steroid suspension, Los Angeles Dodgers fans cheered as though he’d returned from a terrible injury after months of rehabilitation. The hero returns. When[Read More…]
Aramis Ramirez had his first rehab outing yesterday, and he looked great. But far more importantly, he felt great. Ramirez looked fairly similar Friday to the way he did May[Read More…]

You missed it. Admit it. You missed it. The Obsessive Peavywatch is back! New scuttlebutt from Jayson Stark has Jake Peavy possibly on the move, and the Cubs as a[Read More…]
We all know that the Chicago Cubs were pursuing a deal for Jake Peavy in the offseason. But we had been led to believe that the deal never got past[Read More…]
