Chicago Cubs Sign David DeJesus To Play Right Field Every Dang Day

Chicago Cubs Sign David DeJesus To Play Right Field Every Dang Day
The way in which I received the news that the Cubs had signed David DeJesus to play right field for them will help me explain to you how I feel about the deal. Several minutes ago, a baseball buddy of mine IMed me to ask, “How do you feel about David DeJesus?” Well, I said,... Read more »

So what will the Cubs look like in 2012?

So what will the Cubs look like in 2012?
First things first: Carlos Pena’s 2011 OPS+ is 115, and Aramis Ramirez’ is 139. Who is going to play first base for us next year?  Going into this season, we eagerly counted and re-counted the dollars still on the books for 2012, trying to figure out how we might pay Albert Pujols his $25 million...

Why Zambrano's tantrum is, really, a very good thing for the Cubs

Why Zambrano's tantrum is, really, a very good thing for the Cubs
OK, in order for this line of reasoning to work, you have to agree with the premise that: all that matters for the Cubs is the future right now.  What happens the rest of this season doesn’t mean dick, because Hendry and Quade are being entirely short sighted, ignoring playing prospects in order to possibly...

So called Cubs "prospects" are not young; should be played anyhow

Chicago sports radio host and longtime semanticist Dan Bernstein made a point today, that the bloggers (such as this one) who have been beating the drums for the Cubs to “play the young guys” are wrong.  Not so much because he thinks Quade needs to keep running out Soriano, Fukudome, Ramirez, Pena etc., but because...

Tyler Colvin and the Cubs lose

Tyler Colvin and the Cubs lose
File this one under: This was bound to happen: The Cubs blew a 4-0 lead last night, and Tyler Colvin was shipped to Iowa for a box of peanutes. Only two of those things are true, and I bet you have no problems figuring it out. I haven’t seen who is getting called up yet, but... Read more »

Some Cub facts

This team can hit, and is 3rd in MLB in average.  This team has awful timing, and aside from Soriano lacks power; despite the great number of hits the team is just 25th in runs.  This team might be preparing for a roster shake-up. Soto’s groin injury has convinced the organization to put Wellington Castillo... Read more »

What's Wrong With Tyler Colvin?

Yes, the Fangraphs guys have been all over this subject material with a number of major leaguers, but they say that imitation is the most sincere form of flattery, don’t they? Tyler Colvin got a rare start on Saturday, going 0-for-4 with two strikeouts. He now sports a .121 batting average from 58 at-bats with... Read more »

We have found out how good the Cubs are....not very.

We have found out how good the Cubs are....not very.
Alfonso Soriano is 35 in Dominican years, which means he is probably 38 in people years. As you all know, he makes 19 million dollars a year, which represents about a fifth of the payroll.  (Z also makes another 1/5th of the payroll, but more on that in a bit).  For his lion’s share of...

Spring Training 2011 Mega Preview: Tyler Colvin

Check out the script on the header image there: “Should make the team.” Well done, Kurt. I agree that Tyler Colvin should make the 2011 Chicago Cubs’ major league team headed out of spring. But should he start every day? What about every other day? Maybe all night games played between Monday morning and Friday... Read more »
