Monday Morning News and Notes

Today’s column will focus less on the newspaper and online outlets, and more on my first hand observations from this weekend. I was lucky enough to score tickets to Friday and Saturday’s game, before watching last night’s game on ESPN. A lot of intersting things happened over the weekend in Boston, both personally and with... Read more »

The Cubs have begun to hit well, but pitching still a problem

I apologize for the matter-of-fact title of this little essay.  I’ve been waiting for a long time for an inspiration to come, but could not hold out any longer without saying what I have to say today.  Mind you, it’s the same damn thing I said a couple of weeks ago. I don’t claim to... Read more »

After 6 games, records mean squat in Cubs history

So, after a fairly miserable 2010, the 2011 Cubs have started the year 3 and 3. Guess what?  After a miserable 1983, the 1984 Cubs started out 3 and 3.  After an awful 2002, the 2003 Cubs started out 3 and 3.  After a pathetic 2006 (which started out 4-2, BTW) the 2007 Cubs started... Read more »

Wells, Cash to DL; Now What?

The good news is Andrew Cashner’s arm is not completely destroyed. The bad news is, both he and Randy Wells (…wait, what?) are headed to the 15-day disabled list. I actually consider this news to be pretty easy to stomach. Of course it’ll hurt the team’s record in April, and it’s always unfortunate to have... Read more »

Cashner, Wells to the DL

Sarah Spain is reporting that both Andrew Cashner and Randy Wells are headed to the DL.  The former has a rotator cuff sprain, while the latter has a forearm sprain.  The paranoid in me wants to blame the pitching coach – after all, what are the odds of this happening so quickly?  Surely somebody is...

Cubs Hope Not to Cash a Policy on Cashner

Like many of the the bloggers here at GROTA, life sometimes gets in the way of our job. Well, except for maybe A.J., man that guys is a machine. I’m actually on “Spring Break”, so I don’t have the time to sit in front of my computer and rant about how the Pirates took 2... Read more »

Larry Who? Cubs Still Getting K's

Larry, Larry, quite contrary. Also, Yankees suck. Remember Larry Rothschild? He hasn’t been gone for that long. He’s with the Yankees now, but from 2002 to 2010 Larry worked with Cub hurlers as the team’s pitching coach. Throughout his career, Rothschild has been considered a successful coach, and during his time with the Cubs pundits... Read more »

2011 Chicago Cubs Apocalypse Round Table

The 2011 Major League Baseball season is finally here. I don’t know about you, but I could only take so much more of debating whether Koyie Hill should be the back up catcher. In all likelihood, it’s highly unlikely that his inclusion on the roster will make or break the Cubs chances in 2011. The... Read more »

Jim Hendry sends Silva the Hutt packing!

Hell, right now I am so damn happy that I will overlook the fact that Koyie Hill is still around! Rumors and Tweets were starting to churn yesterday that Jim Hendry did the right thing and picked his pitchers based on performance, not by owed salary.  Many including myself were skeptical of the reports from...
