Bully for them.
Doom? Not so much.
Ah, so there *was* a reason for his terrible control through July.
The response comes following the release of ugly, disgusting emails sent to and by Joe Ricketts.
Today was an official reporting day. Did you know? Eh, nobody really focuses on this one. Understandably.
It’s the first step in what could be regular season implementation this year.
No, Moustakas isn’t a game-changer, but it sucks that the Brewers left themselves the flexibility to take advantage of this market and the Cubs did not.
Bryce Harper Talks Reportedly “Intensified” (Phillies?), But I Just Assume Nothing Will Happen (UPDATES)
There has been little reason to think NOW is the time. But, well, things are being said, so here you go.
When guys show up looking noticeably different from the year before, it makes me smile.
I must admit, the guy was consistently really good for a long time before coming to the Cubs.
He’s still throwing, so it doesn’t sound too serious.
I guess Nationals players don’t think he’s coming back …
I don’t think it’s reasonable to say the Cubs missed their shot at a dynasty, but maybe not for the reason you’d think.
Some lighter fare to close out your Friday.
It’s hard to buy anything at this point, even if it sure seems like it’s time for some finality.
Russell says he owns his past actions, is sorry for the harm he caused Melisa, and is working to be a better person.
Brach isn’t alleging collusion, but there are definitely going to be some folks who seize on his comments.
The Cubs have a full rotation when healthy, so even if Chatwood has rebounded, it’s not like he can just win a rotation spot.
Cubs Ain’t Buyin’ the Low Projections, Machado and the Padres, Single Game Tickets, and Other Bullets
They are just entertaining, right?
The Cubs have finally gotten their long-held wish to create their own channel. It could be awesome! But there are risks.
That Edwards delivery may stick around. The ever-present Chatwood tinkering. And Strop the boss.
Back on board the hype train! … well, maybe not quite that far.
Cedeño was excellent last year for the White Sox and Brewers.
BDJ has words. Brandon Morrow is throwing and feels good, so that’s a start.
The Brewers are doing their no-Cubs-fans pre-sale again. It won’t work.
I can see Bote getting some reps at shortstop early. It’s much harder to see Happ getting a real look at second base.
This actually makes me smile. I swear!
Whether it’s just a teaching tool or a total change, it sure looks different.
A reminder that other catching options could pop up for the Cubs outside of free agency.
Dreaming of Bryce Harper is not prudent.
