Cubs News and Notes: Cubs All In For Second Half
After a long hiatus, Cubs News and Notes is back. Did you miss me? Actually, don’t answer that, I would be disappointed either way. The Cubs are fresh off their most impressive stretch of the season, a 6-0 trip to Atlanta and Baltimore. Could this be the long awaited turning point Chicago fans have been... Read more »

A recent trip back to Four Winds Field provided the opportunity to see one the hottest pitching prospects in the Cubs’ system this season, right-handed starter Duncan Robinson. Here then is one game snapshot of Robinson. Background: Selected by the Cubs in the ninth round of the 2016 draft, Robinson had been named the MVP... Read more »

Cubs News and Notes: Cubs Look For Answers To Struggles

Cubs News and Notes: Cubs Look For Answers To Struggles
The last time I posted a News and Notes column the Cubs were stuck just below the .500 mark. Well, it’s two weeks later, and they are still stuck just below the .500 mark. Luckily for Chicago the rest of the NL Central is just as mediocre. Discussions of the Cubs issues have been all... Read more »

I Just Call It Ecstasy--Cubs 7 Cardinals 6

I Just Call It Ecstasy--Cubs 7 Cardinals 6
The Cubs have not been playing good baseball for most of the season. This is an undisputable statement. It is also true that one prolonged winning streak would completely change the conversation aroudnd this team. It appears like the Cubs are on their way to doing just that. Michael Wacha and Kyle Hendricks pitched well... Read more »

No, You Were Nervous: Cubs 5, Giants 4

No, You Were Nervous: Cubs 5, Giants 4
The Giants at least waited until the 2nd inning to score tonight, offering some reprieve from the onslaught of runs that have come against the Cubs in the 1st inning—a league-leading 46 so far—for at least a night. San Francisco pushed their first across thanks to Brandon Crawford’s double, a single from Eduardo Nunez, and... Read more »

Series Preview: Cubs vs Giants 5/22-5/25

Series Preview: Cubs vs Giants 5/22-5/25
The Cubs and Giants face each other for this first time since last year’s NLDS, and it is a good example of how things can change once the season starts. The Cubs appear to have broken the Giants. San Francisco has gotten off to a dreadful start with a 19-26 record and sit in fourth... Read more »

Series Preview: Cubs vs Reds 5/16 - 5/18 [Updated]
[Thursday update: Sick of hearing about Ian Happ yet? Too bad. He may be here to stay. But as I said on Twitter last night, let’s be careful in talking about the future of this team. Happ has some serious talent (and I may be in love with him), but today will only be his fifth Major League... Read more »

The Joey Votto Infield Popup Game: Cubs 7, Reds 5

The Joey Votto Infield Popup Game: Cubs 7, Reds 5
It wasn’t tidy, but the Cubs have a winning record again. Thanks to an especially productive 2nd inning, there was enough padding to the lead to withstand a Cincinnati offense that did not go quietly. Ian Happ, who has avoided returning to Iowa even with Ben Zobrist returning to the lineup, led off with a... Read more »

At Least the Cubs Got a Hit: Rockies 3, Cubs 0

At Least the Cubs Got a Hit: Rockies 3, Cubs 0
This game had a weird vibe to it going in. The lineup was all weird with the late scratch of Addison Russell. The start of the game was delayed due to weather. And it wasn’t the ideal jersey pairing between the Cubs all blue Rockies all purple. Honestly, just make a team wear white. That’s... Read more »

Series Preview: Cubs vs Yankees 5/5-5/7

Series Preview: Cubs vs Yankees 5/5-5/7
The Yankees are off to a surprising hot start. They enter the anticipated series as one of the three teams with a winning percentage over .600. This series is different and special. You will be told how different and special this is ad nauseam on two national broadcasts, but it doesn’t make it any less... Read more »
