Who's Coming North with the Cubs in 2013?

Who's Coming North with the Cubs in 2013?
It’s depressing that there are legal adults who ain’t gotta clue about phone booths and their original purpose.  If you see one, now, chances are it has been converted into a time machine.  There’s one sitting next to a closed gas-station in the next town over, and I stepped in.  Well, ok, I squoze my...

More thoughts on the Start of the Reconstruction

More thoughts on the Start of the Reconstruction
I have watched more Cubs baseball this week than I have all season.  I totally understand this brands me as a sick, twisted individual who apparently has no life and no appreciation for quality.  The first of two reasons why I have watched the Cubs this week is because I figured they would win these...

The clock starts now; limited window is open to trade 3 Cubs

The clock starts now; limited window is open to trade 3 Cubs
 When possible, always deal from strength.  There are players on the current roster that, if traded, would accomplish more in terms of salary savings and providing opportunities to let promising young guys play.  If we could trade Marlon Byrd, for example, that would open up a starting role for Brett Jackson.  If we could trade...

And the game ball goes to... Jeff Samardzija?

Ryan Dempster did not have his best stuff last night, giving up five earned runs on eight hits, including a homer, while collecting just three strikeouts against two walks. After five innings, the Cubs were losing 5-3. Generally, for Quade, that means a call to the B-team: bring in Berg, or Grabow, or whoever. Last... Read more »

Spring Training 2011 Mega Preview: Jeff Samardzija

Editor’s note: forgive me for the lateness of this.  It was due yesterday, which I spent at my new house painting the ever-loving crap out of the bedroom walls.  Sorry!

If the Cubs wish to send Samardzija to the minors at any point this season, he must first be exposed to the other 29 MLB teams via irrevocable waivers. If another team... Read more »
