Koyie Hill is an Awesome Guy

Chicago Cubs catcher Koyie Hill stepped up for the team this year when Geovany Soto struggled and got hurt. No, Hill didn’t replace Soto’s 2008 production, but he gave the Cubs another option behind the plate, played good defense, and caught a good game. He did all that after sawing off a bunch of his […]

Cubs Expected to Pursue Chone Figgins

You know that the 2009 season is officially over for a team when the rumors about their off-season moves begin to swirl. For the Chicago Cubs, it’s going to center on the bats. And the first name to pop up is Los Angeles (of Anaheim, of California, in the West, near Disneyland, not Disney World) […]

God Relents: Soto is Back, But Who Goes Out?

Chicago Cubs catcher Geovany Soto finally returns today from a strained oblique, an injury that’s had him out for the better part of a month. Soto, who had just started to hit when he went down with the injury, had a successful rehab stint in the minors. The Cubs hope he’ll bring his big boy […]

God’s Wrathwatch: Geovany Soto Could Be Back As Soon As Wednesday

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 night for the Cubs’ AA affiliate in Tennessee), and he might be back sooner than expected. “Wednesday wouldn’t be soon enough for me,” [manager Lou] […]

God’s Wrathwatch: Soto is Rehabbin’

So much freaking wrath this week. On the brighter side, Geovany Soto (strained oblique) is getting closer to being back with the Cubs. He started his rehab assignment yesterday with the Mesa Cubs of the AZL, DH’d, and went 1 for 3. As for the rest of his rehab stint: Geovany Soto will begin a […]

God’s Wrathwatch: Geovany Soto Starting Rehab Assignment

Geovany Soto has been out for a long time with an oblique strain, but he’s finally ready to starting a minor league rehab stint, and then return to the Cubs next week.

God’s Wrathwatch: Geovany Soto Could be Back Next Week

Chicago Cubs catcher Geovany Soto has been out for a couple weeks now with a strained oblique muscle, but he is recovering normally. [Soto] is swinging a bat while rehabbing in Mesa, Ariz., and remains on track to return in a week. ”He started swinging a broom stick, and now he’s using a real bat,” […]

Lilly, Dempster, Soto Injury Updates

The Chicago Cubs have so many players recovering from injuries, it is, at times, difficult to keep them all straight. For example, what the hell happened to Aaron Miles? Don’t get me wrong – I’m not exactly pushing for his return. But, like, did he break his femur or something? For now, we’ve got updates […]

God’s Wrathwatch: Geovany Soto Hoping to Be Out Only Two or Three Weeks

Though when Chicago Cubs catcher Geovany Soto was first placed on the disabled list late last week, the word was not good: out one month, minimum. But Soto, currently rehabbing in Arizona, is hoping he can be back much sooner. “We’re going to attack [the injury] quickly and see where we’re at,” Soto said earlier […]

Sam Fuld Back to Chicago to Replace Soto

Sam Fuld is heading back to Chicago to take Geovany Soto’s place on the roster once he’s DL’d. Fuld was more than adequate in a brief stint a couple weeks ago, and with Alfonso Soriano and Milton Bradley continuing to struggle, Fuld could actually see some at bats this time around. Then again, he may […]

Sorry Steve Clevenger and Chris Robinson, But the Cubs Think You Suck

When starting catcher Geovany Soto went down this week with an oblique injury, the Chicago Cubs had to scramble for a back-up catcher. And despite two adequately performing catchers at AAA Iowa – Steve Clevenger and Chris Robinson – the Cubs decided to look outside the organization. The Cubs apparently tried to claim a catcher […]

God’s Wrathwatch: Soto Might Be Going to the DL

The Lord giveth, and the Lord taketh away. Or in the case of the Chicago Cubs, He just taketh away. Cubs catcher Geovany Soto might be headed to the disabled list after straining an oblique muscle the other day during batting practice. The team had long awaited the return of third baseman Aramis Ramirez (and […]
