George Kottaras, losing Dioner, and Juan Uribe thoughts

Kottaras George Kottaras is not a sexy signing. He’s not Jarrod Saltalamacchia and he’s not Brian McCann. If we take this at surface value Kottaras is a .214 hitting part time catcher with a good defensive reputation. Seems a bit like Damian Miller. But he’s not just that. Kottaras has a damn good eye. Last year... Read more »

Farewell to you Indian Summer. Cubs 3 Braves 1.

Farewell to you Indian Summer. Cubs 3 Braves 1.
The Cubs shook off the embarrassment of all things Kevin Gregg, fought through tough starter Kris Medlin and found a way to win a ball game today at Wrigley Field. Anthony Rizzo’s double, Dioner Navarro’s single, and Nate Schierholtz’s sac fly led to 3 8th inning runs and overcame a 1-0 deficit for a 3-1... Read more »

With light in my head, you in my arms. Cubs 9 Marlins 7.

With light in my head, you in my arms. Cubs 9 Marlins 7.
It took halfway through the game, but the Cubs woke up and realized that they were playing the worst team in the National league.  Finding some key home runs, the Cubs managed to come from behind, something they don’t usually do, and defeat the Florida invaders 9-7. The Marlins got on the board first thanks... Read more »

Yeah you swept me away. Cubs 8 White Sox 2.
The Cubs looked to give the good times going and add to the south siders misery in their make up game Monday night at Bad Cell Service Park. And thanks to a veteran finding the fountain of youth, and a pitcher greasing his skids out of town, that’s exactly what happened. Alfonso Soriano hit a... Read more »

Yo ho, and blow the man down. Cubs 4 Bucs 3 in 11 inn.

Carlos Villanueva made the start. But seeing as how he had been in the pen for two months, could only give the Cubs 4 innings of service.
The Cubs took the field on a hot, steamy summer day with the rare opportunity to win a series against one of their central division foes. Carlos Villanueva was making his first start since being inserted back into the rotation. Which meant the bullpen was going to be needed. Luckily for the Cubs, the Pirates... Read more »

Like I blister in the sun. Cubs 7 Brewers 2

Like I blister in the sun. Cubs 7 Brewers 2
Maybe the Cubs woke up from their nap.  Or perhaps they had enough bad water downed beer and just got pissed off. Whatever the reason, the Cubs realized they were playing the Brewers and treated them as such. Dioner Navarro hit a three run home run and Matt garza was simply outstanding in what could...

Pitching coming together. What about the rest of team? Part 1: Catchers

Pitching coming together. What about the rest of team? Part 1: Catchers
As we mentioned a couple of days ago, the Cubs go 7 deep in their rotation before having to dip into AAA for additional depth.  That added depth in the rotation should spill over into the bullpen and fortify that as well. How does the rest of the team look so far and are the... Read more »
