The Chicago Cubs have outrighted right-handed reliever Eduardo Sanchez to Triple-A Iowa after having cleared waivers. Sanchez, who was designated for assignment last week, remains as depth for the organization.
While Sanchez does have potential, he is already in his mid-20′s and hasn’t found the harness on his control the past few seasons. Sanchez is a project at best, but with pitching being at a premium, he will continue to receive chances as long as his arm remains healthy.

Many experts anticipated the Chicago Cubs would take Stanford’s RHP Mark Appel or Oklahoma’s RHP Jonathan Gray with the second overall pick in the 2013 MLB Draft, but they opted for University of San Diego slugger Kris Bryant. This was a surprise to many because of the obvious lack of top-end pitching in the Cubs farm system, but the Chicago front office made it clear it was...

No walks and a single extra-base hit (Logan Watkins, double). You'd think the Cubs lost, right? Wrong: Chris Rusin pitched a shutout because he's on a mission to make me look as stupid as possible. 5 hits and a walk, and 8 strikeouts.

This past off-season the Chicago Cubs made acquiring starting pitching a priority. One of those pitchers signed was journeyman Edwin Jackson, who was given a 4 year, $52 million deal. But with Jackson’s struggles throughout the first half of the season, many are questioning whether or not the Cubs should have spent that much money on him. Let’s take a look at his stats so far...
ST. LOUIS -- The Cubs were three outs away from heading to Busch Stadium on a rare four-game winning streak Sunday afternoon.
Then came Carlos Marmol. There went the Cubs' momentum.
Marmol gave up four runs on two homers while getting only one out -- that on a sacrifice -- to turn a 3-0 lead into a 4-3 walk-off loss against the lowly Mets.
Even normally soft-spoken left...

Steve Clevenger is making a case to get back to Wrigley Field as the left-handed hitting catcher is hitting .417 in 10 games and smacked two of homers to lead Iowa Saturday night. Kyle Hendricks improved to 7-2 with seven strong innings in a Tennessee victory. 2012 first-rounder Paul Blackburn made his NWL debut and Kane County lost.
Check out the video. NBC sportscaster Bob Costas referred to the New York Mets 4-3 victory celebration over the Chicago Cubs as an “indication of the ongoing decline of Western Civilization.”
Baseball has been uniting father and son since the inception of the game in the 1850s.
So on this Father’s Day, we are grateful to the many dads out there who taught us how to play America’s pastime.

(AP) -- Offense continues to come at a premium for the Chicago Cubs at Busch Stadium, and it likely won't come any easier Tuesday night.

Around this time every year, after the draft and the beginning of the short-season A and rookie leagues, many prospects begin to be promoted while others are displaced from their positions in the upper minors.
With the Boise Hawks beginning play and the rookie-level team based in Mesa soon to follow, the Cubs have begun signing draft picks, including second rounder Rob Zastryzny...
I had to stop and ask myself if the Cubs had even played the Cardinals yet this year. Two and a half months into the season, the Cubs and Cardinals have only played a two game series back in May that they split. This is probably a good thing for the Cubs win-loss record (or a bad thing, depending on how you look at it). The Cardinals are good. And kinda lucky. But to paraphrase Dwight...
Today, of course, is Fathers’ Day, and as such I had a good time with the family and especially with my son. The wife will give me something else later (ha!) but we just finished watching Monsters, Inc., and playing Stratego and some card games. It was very relaxing. It’s almost as if the Cubs hadn’t lost a game and our world hadn’t suddenly ended.
That post, surprisingly...
