Chicago-cubs-relief
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, led to a bit of disorder on the internets, particularly on our Facebook page.  The tone of that post was unintentionally offensive and I apologize.  It is every fan’s right to be as frustrated and upset and angry with the team’s lack of winning baseball as they want to be and to express their emotions as a form of venting.  It might actually help them cool off in the long run.  However, the tone of that post would be decidedly different if not for the fact that on Twitter, according to various sources, many fans were taking their frustrations re: Carlos Marmol way past being a fan and getting too personal, appa...

Chicago Cubs 2013 draft recap

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.

What to make of Edwin Jackson’s season so far?

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...

Chicago Cubs Outright Eduardo Sanchez To Iowa

The Chicago Cubs have outrighted right-handed reliever Eduardo Sanchez to Triple-A Iowa after having cleared waivers.

Cubs place OF David DeJesus on DL

The Chicago Cubs have placed outfielder David DeJesus on the 15-day disabled list after he sprained his right shoulder running into the center-field wall Friday night.

Kirk Nieuwenhuis crushed a Carlos Marmol fastball for a three-run, walk-off home run to give the New York Mets a 4-3 win over the Chicago Cubs at Citi Field Sunday. As is the tradition of getting a shaving cream pie in the face during the post-game interview, the Mets' hero did not go unscathed.  The only difference was old Newie got a real apple pie in the puss. Justin...

F.F.F.

At least the Mets had the decency to lose in nine innings after a four hour rain delay. So much for your imaginary concept of "momentum". I don't suppose there's a chance that the Braves could acquire Carlos Marmol in the next few minutes? The Mets could now go 0-3 in a span of 24 hours thanks to Freddie Freeman's walk-off dinger off Dillon Gee...
