There haven't been many good things for the Chicago Cubs this year, but one of them came to an end Friday night in an 8-3 loss at Arizona. Second baseman Darwin Barney committed his first error at second base since April 17. That left him tied for the major-league single-season record for consecutive errorless games at second. Barney already held the National League record, and he'll have to settle for sharing the big-league record with Placido Polanco, who went 141 games with Detroit in 2007. Barney still looks to be the front-runner for Gold Glove honors in the National League, something manager Dale Sveum has said time and again Barney deserves. "It goes without saying he's Gold Glove material," Sveum said. Barney made the error on a throw, as he backhanded Justin Upton's grounder up the middle and threw it away at first base, allowing a run to score. First baseman Anthony Rizzo couldn't scoop the low throw, and the ball got away. It wa...

Well, the good news is 2012 is almost over for the Chicago Cubs.
Probably I was one of about 47 people who watched last night's 2-8 Cub-drubbing by Arizona.I mean, I watched but it was unwatchable.I googled "Cubs tv ratings" and the newest article (the Sherman Report) is from August 31st.It says White Sox games rule tv in Chicago (yada yada whatever dude), but worse...
In a season that has mostly sucked it seems appropriate to pay tribute to those who helped them suck even more than they would have otherwise. I haven't looked this over so I'm doing the work as I write along. We'll start with the position players and if I feel like I'll do one for [...]
Here we are, in a Cubs baseball season that was deposited into the septic tank of history approximately 150 days ago. If you can name the Cubs current starting rotation, well, that’s just sad. Get a life. The Cubs underperformed major-league caliber baseball again today, but let’s forget about that and find something else to [...]
For all the dismal seasons Chicago Cubs fans have suffered through over the last 45-plus years, a 100-loss campaign is not among them.
That would change with another defeat Sunday against the host Arizona Diamondbacks, who look to complete a three-game sweep.
After falling 8-2 on Saturday, Chicago (59-99) needs to win its remaining four games to avoid hitting the 100-loss mark...

There are countless reasons why the Chicago Cubs are closing in on 100 losses. Their road play against the NL West is near the top of the list.
The Cubs continue their series against the Arizona Diamondbacks on Saturday night looking to end a 17-game road losing streak against NL West opponents.
Chicago hasn't recorded 100 losses in a season since 1966, when it finished 59...
Dan Vogelbach crushed a towering three-run home run over the right-centerfield fence in the top of the 6th to give the Cubs a 4-2 lead, and a two-run Diamondback rally in the bottom of the 9th fell just a bit short, as the Cubs edged the D’backs 5-4 in Arizona Instructional League action at Whirlwind Field at Salt River Fields at Talking Stick Resort east of Scottsdale this morning...
Today on Wrigley Talk Friday, AC and I discuss a lot of stuff that really only tangentially had anything to do with the Cubs. And then my call got dropped as I made a really insightful comment about Kevin Youkilis. We run a tight ship at WTF. Listen to internet radio with Wrigley Talk Friday [...]
