The Anarchist's Brunch.

The Anarchist's Brunch.
So the big news this week in Cub-land was Alderman Tom Tunney and his band of rooftop owners riding in on their white horses with a plan to help save Wrigley. Well, not quite. The rooftop owners have offered, suggested to put advertising signage and jumbo-trons on their buildings, at no cost to the Cubs.... Read more »

Cubs Prospect Notes: Sappelt, Soler, Jackson, winter ball

Cubs Prospect Notes: Sappelt, Soler, Jackson, winter ball
Time to catch up on the progress of some Cubs prospects and young players… Dave Sappelt has been coming around the bat but his baserunning blunder really didn’t sit well with manager Dale Sveum.  When asked if it was a coach’s decision, Sveum said, “It’s not a coach’s decision.

Should the Cubs trade cost-controlled players such as LaHair, Barney, and Campana?

Should the Cubs trade cost-controlled players such as LaHair, Barney, and Campana?

Cubs Sveum has his hands tied for now

Cubs Sveum has his hands tied for now
This rebuilding plan can’t be easy yet for Cubs manager Dale Sveum. Not because he doesn’t want to oversee a rebuilding project, he signed up for that. It’s playing guys that he may not want to really play for the sake of propping up their non-existent trade value. There are times that you can see this... Read more »

This rebuilding plan is perplexing for both the fans and media. Looking around this week there are some questions worth visiting. There are questions of whether Carlos Marmol should still be the closer.  Or why Marmol is still even a Cub? Dale Sveum is sticking with Marmol not just because he is the best option at...

Could Joe Mather make Jeff Baker expendable earlier than expected?

Could Joe Mather make Jeff Baker expendable earlier than expected?
Up until now, we’ve all assumed Joe Mather was competing for a spot with Tony Campana, but with Wrigley Field playing as a big ballpark early in the season, Campana’s speed off the bench could be an asset for a team that may have to scratch for every run this season. Yet, Mather has clearly... Read more »

Tony Campana taking his opportunity and running with it

We talk a lot about young players and future prospects on this blog but one guy who never gets mentioned is Tony Campana.  It looks like I may have missed the boat on that one. For Campana, however, it’s business as usual. At just 5’8″ and 160 lbs, he has always been told that he... Read more »
