World Series Dreaming:
Even though the trade took place a year ago, fans still clamor for Tyler Colvin who was sent to the Colorado Rockies along with DJ LeMahieu for Ian Stewart. With the way Stewart performed here for the first half of the season before landing on the disabled list, and how well Colvin and LeMahieu performed last season, one would have a hard time arguing that this trade was a win for the Chicago Cubs. With Stewart continuing to struggle to get healthy, the rumblings about how the Cubs made a mistake are back in full force.
However, I have some great news for you on how the Cubs can reacquire the legendary players and bring them back to the North Side of Chicago.
In case you did not hear, both Colvin and LeMahieu were optioned to the minor leagues. They were unable to make the Rockies making them available to any team willing to pay the price to attain them. Because they were unable to make the roster, both should be easily attainable for a very minimum price.
If Theo Epstein was smart,...

Your browser does not support iframes. A shirtless Chicago Cubs fan made an extra effort to keep cool during the late innings of Thursday's Chicago Cubs spring training game in Mesa, Arizona when he asked a beer vendor to pour a cup of ice water over his head. After the initial shock, the fan appeared to feel pretty refreshed. We hope he gave that beer vendor a nice tip for...
Scott Feldman threw five innings (65 pitches) of two-hit ball with seven strikeouts, but the Inland Empire 66ers (Los Angeles Angels Hi-A affiliate) edged the Daytona Cubs 2-1 on Field #3, and Rock Shoulders clubbed an opposite field HR over the left-centerfield fence, Willson Contreras drilled a triple, and Oliver Zapata followed with an RBI double to highlight a three-run 7th that...
Roni Torreyes knocked-in three runs with a bases-loaded triple, John Andreoli tripled and walked, scored two runs, and drove-in two more, Rafael Lopez reached base three times on a double, a single, and a walk, and scored three runs, and Alberto Cabrera tossed five innings of shutout ball with five strikeouts and four relievers threw four perfect innings, as the Tennessee Smokies...
The Chicago Cubs have played at Wrigley Field since 1916. Ivy covered brick wall in the outfield, the manual scoreboard, the bleachers, and of course the red marquee out front that welcomes you to the Friendly Confines. All of these things help make Wrigley such an iconic ballpark, and are a key part of the history of the baseball team on the North Side of Chicago. I personally...
RLYW posted their annual projections blowout this week. The Cubs win between 72 and 74 games with all the projections and average 74 wins.
The post 74 win Cubs appeared first on Obstructed View.
Yes, a Zubaz pants giveaway is in store for Chicago Cubs fans. It's an ugly, but pretty exciting move, if we say so ourselves.
Chicago's Edwin Jackson got off to a slow start on Friday night against the Houston Astros. When he settled down, he was almost unhittable.
Jackson struck out nine as the Cubs and Astros played to a 6-6 tie in 10 innings in an exhibition game.
Jackson plunked leadoff hitter Jose Altuve before walking Brett Wallace. Chris Carter then doubled in a pair with one out before Jackson...
Ozzie Timmons smacked a two-out game-winning walk-off HR in the bottom of the 9th to give the Cubs the victory in the last game played at HoHoKam Park before the stadium was to be demolished...

The windows are opened. The air is warm. The last Spring Training Cubs game is set to go on my tablet. It’s almost time to hear Pat Hughes call out ”Chicago Cubs Baseball is ON THE AIR”… for real. The long winter and even longer spring training is almost over.
With more drama off the field than on the field, with the renovations, negotiations, and fighting with...
With major league baseball teams making their final cuts down to their 25 man rosters, there were a few surprising names that will find themselves headed down to the minor leagues over the next couple of days. Probably the most eyebrow raising move of the day went to the Colorado Rockies who sent Tyler Colvin down to Triple-A. While he had struggled this spring, he had a breakout...
