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 »

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...

If there are not roster battles on the 2011 Cubs, there should be

If there are not roster battles on the 2011 Cubs, there should be
We all know that there is some doubt as to whether or not we carry a fifth outfielder or a seventh Behind the Soriano/Byrd/Fooky/Colvin group in the outfield and the ARam/Castro/DeWitt/Baker/Pena infield combo, has Darwin Barney sewn up a spot?  How about Fernando Perez?  Scott Moore?  Soul Patch Johnson?  That’s one roster battle out there. ...

The 2010 Cubs were great at being awful

The 2010 Cubs were great at being awful
The folks at Baseball Reference recently posted an item to their blog titled, 2010 Cubs: Blowout Specialists. The Cubs lost 11 games last season by 10 or more runs; only 12 teams have managed to do that since 1901. How does a team manage to lose repeatedly by ten or more runs? I suppose conceptually it’s... Read more »

Spring Training 2011 Mega Preview: Andrew Cashner

Spring Training 2011 Mega Preview: Andrew Cashner
I didn’t have much time to sit down and semi-thoughtfully analyze Andrew Cashner’s upcoming 2011 season, so forgive me for giving this post the Thomas Hobbes treatment (Get it? Nasty, brutish, and short. Yes, that was a philosophy joke. I’m sorry). For a more thoughtful digestion, might I suggest Paul Sullivan’s piece on Cashner’s increasing... Read more »

Cubs Spring Training Mega-Preview - Justin Berg

I am still getting used to our banners for this series – I keep thinking that says “Mr. Justin Berg”.  As if he has become a “man of respect”, or something. When they woke Lou Piniella up from his long winter’s nap last year, somebody handed him a sheet of the 2009 stats, or something. ... Read more »
