This guy took in a Chicago Cubs game with a haircut eerily similar to Miley Cyrus' current look. Hopefully, he doesn't start twerking at Wrigley Field.

Cubs trading Garza or not?

There seems to be some confusion out of Chicago as Jon Heyman of CBS Sports is reporting that the Chicago Cubs are considering keeping Matt Garza. Just yesterday we mentioned how the Washington Nationals were showing interest in Garza, like many other teams. This is pretty hard to believe after six months of non-stop talk of the Cubbies trading Garza at the deadline. In what could...

The pre-All Star Game Cubs rundown

There are way too many storylines to go through this time of year.  Between the promotion and successes of various Cubs prospects in the minor leagues, the impending trades of certain Cubs assets such as Matt Garza, the international free agent signing period and the still-unsigned Cubs draft picks including Kris Bryant (we’ll know by 4 PM Central on Friday), we have a hefty slate...

Garza (5-1), meanwhile, came through...

Cubs send Hairston to Nationals

Video: Illinois Basketball Coach John Groce Sings Rough Rendition Of “Take Me Out To The Ballgame” At Cubs Game

During the summer, we all miss college sports — to satisfy your fix, you generally have to turn to professional athletics. But fans of the Chicago Cubs got the best of both worlds yesterday. John Groce, the University of Illinois men’s head basketball coach, sang “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” for the 7th inning stretch during the Chicago Cubs vs. Pittsburgh Pirates game...

Nationals acquire Hairston from Cubs

The Washington Nationals have acquired outfielder Scott Hairston from the Chicago Cubs for minor league pitcher Ivan Pineyro. The Cubs announced the deal on Monday. Hairston batted .172 with eight home runs and 19 RBIs after agreeing to a two-year deal with Chicago. The Cubs have also traded Scott Feldman, Carlos Marmol and Steve Clevenger in the past week. Pineyro, a 21-year...

The Nationals Add Scott Hairston, Nifty Role Player

When a player hitting .172 with a .232 on base percentage is traded for an A-ball pitching prospect, it usually doesn’t generate big headlines. So, you can be forgiven if you haven’t paid a ton of attention to the most recent trade between the Nationals and Cubs, which sent outfielder Scott Hairston to Washington and Ivan Pineyro to the Cubs, plus a pair of PTBNLs, with one...

Garza's value peaking at right time

Matt Garza pitched impressively. Then he spoke candidly. Late Monday night, after what might have been his final start for the Chicago Cubs, Garza confirmed reports that his representatives have spoken with the team about a contract extension. The chances for a long-term deal, Garza said, are "as real as a trade." But he also acknowledged the possibility of a move before...

Cubs 4, Pirates 3(11)

Pinch hitter Dioner Navarro had a game-ending sacrifice fly in the 11th inning, lifting the Chicago Cubs to a 4-3 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates on Sunday. Anthony Rizzo sparked the winning rally with a leadoff single.

Independent League pitching can hang with the big boys

It's difficult to compare one league to another when talent is distributed all over the world at different levels. How can you determine which minor league has the best pitching or the best hitting? Unless you scout every single one and know the minute details of every player, than you might have a chance. According to Baseball Reference, there are 31 different professional...

Cubs rumors: Epstein and Hoyer confident in signing Kris Bryant by July 12 deadline

For the second straight year, the Chicago Cubs are massive sellers as the MLB All-Star break fast approaches with the non-waiver trade deadline looming soon after. They have already traded Scott Feldman, Steve Clevenger, and Scott Hairston. Soon, Matt Garza, Kevin Gregg, and Alfonso Soriano could also find new homes (although Garza is no longer a certainty).
