The Ian Stewart Show continues

The Ian Stewart Show continues
I’m not a guy to bash baseball players but The Ian Stewart Show just never seems to end.  It only goes underground for a bit and then bubbles back up to the surface. Let me preface by saying that I really, really wanted to like Ian Stewart.  I thought the Cubs had found a possible... Read more »

Cubs position-by-position analysis: 3B

Cubs position-by-position analysis: 3B
This is the 4th in a series of position-by-positional analysis of the Cubs organizational depth.  Yesterday we covered one of the deepest positions (2B).  Today it’s a position in which the Cubs have a lot of depth, some top talent, yet no certain answers.  It’s one of the reasons you can’t rule out the idea...

Cubs "aggressively" pursuing Jeff Keppinger to add to 3B mix

Cubs "aggressively" pursuing Jeff Keppinger to add to 3B mix
This is one of those stories that got lost between my flu bug and the recent flurry of activity.  But Buster Olney re-tweeted that the Cubs have been aggressively pursuing infielder Jeff Keppinger, despite the fact that he recently broke his fibula when he fell down the stairs.

Who's your 3B in '13? Stewart, Vitters, Lake..or none of the above?
The Cubs have a lot of holes to fill.  Anthony Rizzo should soon help fill some of the Cubs slugging void the team desperately needs, while Brett Jackson may soon follow to help out with some pop and OBP from the CF position.  One concern that I hear from a lot of Cubs fans is... Read more »

Is the Cubs plan working?

Is the Cubs plan working?
There was a moment in my radio interview where I let my optimism slip through.  I talked about getting to .500.  If they can get to that in a relatively weak division …who knows what can happen? I was a bit surprised.  I didn’t plan on saying anything like that, but when Josh Houchins talked... Read more »

Cubs Win! Samardzjia, LaHair keys but Marmol, Stewart and Soto get in on the act

Cubs Win! Samardzjia, LaHair keys but Marmol, Stewart and Soto get in on the act
Good Cubs win today.  They once again got solid starting pitching and a HR by Bryan LaHair, but this time they got some help as Ian Stewart had a HR and a nice defensive play that may have saved an extra run.  Geovany Soto had two hits, a walk, and an RBI to contribute to... Read more »

Cubs Recap: Samardzija struggles but LaHair slam,Stewart 3 run shot provide support

Cubs Recap: Samardzija struggles but LaHair slam,Stewart 3 run shot provide support
After a rain delay and some sort of World Series ceremony, the game started late.  So did Adam Wainright.  And the Cubs took advantage by getting off to a 9-0 lead before barely hanging on to win 9-5. Despite starting with 4 scoreless innings, Jeff Samardzija really struggled today.  I was hoping he’d settle down... Read more »

2012 Cubs breakout and bounce back candidates: The position players

2012 Cubs breakout and bounce back candidates: The position players
A while back we looked at some breakout and bounce back candidates on the mound.  Now it’s time to look at some of the position players.  This isn’t as easy.  The Cubs don’t have a lot of breakout candidates right now as far as position players.  Most of those type of players are in the...
