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 […]

Geovany Soto Smoked Some Pot

At the World Baseball Class, Geovany Soto tested positive … wait for it … for marijuana. Duuuude. The good news is that he won’t be suspended by MLB, though he’s been booted from international competition for two years. Additional bad news includes an increasingly diminished supply of Ho-Hos and Funyuns on the North Side. “I […]

Cubs Stick With Absurd Number of Pitchers For Now

When Rich Harden returned from the disabled list this weekend, the Chicago Cubs sent down an infielder, despite the fact that the team already had 12 pitchers (more than the typical 11). Well, it wasn’t a completely temporary thing. Lou Piniella says it’s going to stay that way for a little while. ”The big reason […]

Cubs Place Zambrano on Disabled List, I Place Hot Poker in My Ear

It is barely May, and the Chicago Cubs have already seen Derrek Lee, Aramis Ramirez, Milton Bradley, Geovany Soto, and now Carlos Zambrano miss significant time. It’s a g-d miracle this team is above .500. Carlos Zambrano was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a Grade 2 left hamstring strain. Infielder Bobby Scales was […]

Koyie Hill to Get More Starts Over Geovany Soto?

Koyie Hill spelled Chicago Cubs starting catcher Geovany Soto last night, and came up with three hits, bringing his season average up to .318. Soto, by contrast, is hitting just .119. But there’s no way there’s any kind of catcher controversy, right? I mean, Soto is the reigning Rookie of the Year, and Hill is […]

God’s Wrathwatch: Soto and Ramirez Back Today, Bradley Back Whenever

In case you missed it, Geovany Soto (shoulder) and Aramis Ramirez (back) are expected back in the starting lineup today against the Rockies. Milton Bradley (tender, tender groin), on the other hand, isn’t expected back until the weekend. The Cubs are shooting for a weekend return for Milton Bradley, who suffered a mildly strained groin […]

Oh Yeah, Aramis Ramirez is Hurt, Too

You may have noticed that the Cubs were without three regulars yesterday. In addition to catcher Geovany Soto and right fielder Milton Bradley, third baseman Aramis Ramirez sat out the contest with a sore back. And he says he’s been battling it for a little while. Super. “I played like that yesterday,” he said of […]
