Javier Baez drove-in six runs with a two-run HR and a grand slam, Yasiel Balaguert knocked-in four runs with a three-run home run and a sacrifice fly, Dong-Yub Kim drove-in two runs with an RBI single and a solo HR, and Wilson Contreras ripped a two-run double, leading the Cubs to a 14-4 demolition of the Angels in Cactus League Extended Spring Training action this morning at Fitch Park Field #3 in Mesa, AZ. Baez now has eight home runs and 26 RBI in 24 EXST games, and he has saved his best work for games against the Angels. In six EXST games (24 AB) versus the Halos, Baez is hitting .468 with four home runs and 16 RBI. Apparently he can do whatever he wants when he faces the Angels. While the Cubs were playing the Angels on Field #3, RHP Marcos Mateo (on the Cubs 60-day DL with a sore elbow), RHP Justin Berg (2011 TJS rehab), LHP Luis Villalba, RHP Loiger Padron, RHP Ramon Garcia (broken hand rehab), and RHP Ethan Elias threw a five-inning “sim” game on Field #2, facing Cubs pl...

Cubs P Kerry Wood Retires

Pitcher Kerry Wood retired Saturday after 13+ seasons in the majors, 12 of them spent with the Chicago Cubs. Wood is best known for his 20-strikeout game against the Astros in 1998, which earned him the nickname “Kid K”. Only the third player in history to do so (Roger Clemens, Randy Johnson), Wood accomplished the feat in only his fifth career start at the age of 20. Many people...

Solid outing could help Cubs' Wood solidify a rotation job

Despite losing 2-1 to the Houston Astros on Tuesday night for their eighth defeat in a row, the Chicago Cubs may have filled a black hole in their rotation. Left-hander Travis Wood came up from Class AAA Iowa for the second time this season, and for the second time, he was solid. Wood didn't get a quality start against the Astros, but he fell just short, lasting 5 2/3 innings...

Retired Cubs ace Kerry Wood confirms that he’s headed to the team’s front office.

CHICAGO- For a pitcher that at one point delivered some of the hottest stuff that the MLB has seen over the past 15 years, Kerry Wood seemed to be one step away from immortality. His career runs semi-parallel to the NFL’s Dan Marino in the sense that he was physically gifted, did some amazing thing and sputtered out down the last leg of his career only to never win a championship...

Houston's Johnson ejected against Cubs

Houston third baseman Chris Johnson has been ejected from Tuesday night's game with the Chicago Cubs after slamming his helmet on the ground and arguing a call at first base in the fourth inning. With the game tied at 1-1, Johnson hit a ground ball to shortstop Starlin Castro, who made a diving stop and whose throw to first appeared to barely beat Johnson. Johnson was called...

Rizzo Shoots & Scores!

Glad tidings from breezy Principal Park where the I-Cubs climbed all over the Tacoma Rainiers and snapped a four-game skid with an 18-8 slapstick win this afternoon. Anthony (Ratso) Rizzo (who else?) paced Iowa with a record-tying performance in support of Chris Volstad's first outing for the team. Rizzo lined his 15th homer to the luxury seats in left-center on the first pitch...
