Carlos Zambrano and Milton Bradley to be Traded? Bruce Levine Thinks So

The Chicago Cubs 2009 season has certainly been a disappointment. Of course, it’s not quite over yet, but that’s not stopping the Cubs from discussing 2010. “We haven’t talked about next year as of yet,” Piniella said. “We want to continue to focus on our games now and this season. However, we are going to […]

Enhanced Box Score: Reds 7, Cubs 5 – September 12, 2009

Clearly Randy Wells does not realize that his quest for Rookie of the Year is about all we have to cheer for at this point. Also, Carlos Marmol did a nice job of living up to the don’t-use-closers-in-non-save-situations mantra. He must really be a closer. Still, a favorite goat gets the enhancement.

Ted Lilly is a Great Pitcher, Person

Randy Wells has probably been the best starter for the Chicago Cubs this year, but there’s no doubt that Ted Lilly has been the anchor of the rotation. So the fact that his teammates nominated him for an award is no surprise. But the cool thing is that this award is for performance on the […]

Chicago Cubs: Dumping Players, and the Measure of Regret

The All Star break marks the not-really-but-figurative mid-point of the season. It always seems like a good time to reflect on pre-season items, and how things have played out (read: cliche, but we’re doing it anyway). It is an easy time to look back with the benefit of hindsight … and regret. The Chicago Cubs […]

Will the Cubs Look at Roy Halladay?

Toronto Blue Jays general manager J.P. Ricciardi said earlier this week that the team will be listening to offers for superstar pitching Roy Halladay. The ace is signed through next season, making $14.25 million this year, and $15.75 million next year. Even if it makes no sense at all, given the costs involved and the […]

The Chicago Cubs Are Scouting Pedro Martinez

You read that right, folks. Somehow, some way, for some reason, the Chicago Cubs recently scouted formerly awesome pitcher, and currently broken guy, Pedro Martinez. A source close to Pedro Martinez indicated tonight that both the Chicago Cubs and Tampa Bay Rays have watched Martinez throw in the Dominican and both teams have begun to at […]

Obsessive Harden Shoulder, er Backwatch: Rehab Start Today

Chicago Cubs starting pitcher Rich Harden, on the shelf for a couple of weeks with an ailing back, will make a rehab start for AAA Iowa today. If all goes well, the Cubs could see him back as soon as later this week. Throughout his rehab, Harden has said he feels good, and it could […]

Rich Harden to the Disabled List

Well this kind of came out of nowhere. God is so freaking vengeful. The Cubs placed Rich Harden on the 15-day disabled list with a back strain on Friday, and inserted Randy Wells into the rotation for Saturday’s game. Harden felt a twinge in his last outing last Sunday, and in a subsequent side session […]

Carlos Zambrano is a Minor Leaguer Today, Major Leaguer on Friday

Aramis Ramirez may be out until forever, but it looks like Carlos Zambrano will be back soon from his hamstring injury. Carlos Zambrano flew to Florida on Saturday and plans to start Sunday for Class A Daytona in a Florida State League game in Dunedin. “If everything goes well, he will pitch [for the Cubs] […]

Sean Marshall to the Bullpen is Rearing its Head Again

About a month ago, there were whispers that Chicago Cubs manager Lou Piniella would like to see Sean Marshall in the bullpen because he is a reliable lefty. But at the time, Marshall was a significantly better starting pitcher than the next in line, and it didn’t make sense to make the switch. With the […]

Joey Gathright on His Way Out?

AAA Iowa starter Randy Wells is being called up today to take Carlos Zambrano’s spot in the rotation, but the decision on whom to send down to make room had not yet been made. Most (and by most, I mean, I) assumed that Wells would simply replace the guy that was called up when Z […]

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 […]
