Sweeney up, Sappelt down

From cubs.com: The Cubs are expected to call up outfielder Ryan Sweeney from Triple-A Iowa and option Dave Sappelt to the Minor Leagues on Monday. This is an interesting move. On one hand, Sweeney is almost certainly the better baseball player at this point. Sappelt just hasn't really made an impact at the major league level, for one reason or another. Additionally, this allows...

Cubs Option Ian Stewart to AAA

Tennessee Smokies 2 @ Mississippi Braves 3 (11 innings) Matt Szczur drew the start in center, going 0-5 with a walk.

The Sad Case of Dale Sveum

After Saturday’s loss, Chicago Cub fans have completely given up on Carlos Marmol, and manager Dale Sveum has been thrown into the fire right along with him. Fans are getting tired of seeing Marmol trotted out to the mound game after game, only to see him give fans heart attacks, and finding a way to grab defeat from the jaws of victory. They want Marmol gone from the team, and...

Cubs’ Darwin Barney Fall Down And Go Boom

Darwin Barney of the Cubs got up and personal with a bench on Friday as he chased after a foul ball. The result was a pretty solid collision with a bench but the young man rubbed some dirt on it and he was fine. Article found on: Next Impulse Sports

The Legacy of Kerry Wood

Today is May 6th, 2013, 15 years to the day that something very special happened at Wrigley Field.  In 1998, the Cubs made it to the playoffs as the National League wild card after a nine-year absence and when Sammy Sosa was going bonkers and helping North Siders and America love baseball again.  But on May 6th, 1998, before Sammy’s power surge kicked in, a young pitcher making...

Iowa Cubs - Josh Vitters...

Saturday game thread: Reds (16-14) v. Cubs (11-18)

Before yesterday's bottom of the ninth, Aroldis Chapman had allowed 5 hits, 2 walks, and 1 measly run over 13.1 IP. Friday, the Cubs got to him for 4 hits, 2 BB, and 3 runs in just two-thirds of an inning, and his ERA jumped from 0.68 to 2.57. It was also just the second time in 17 career appearances v. the Cubs that Chapman has been scored upon at all. Thus, I am counting yesterday...

#TeaseRallies are unsatisfying

The Cubs dropped thier third straight game yesterday. Two of the past three games where lost due to 4 run eighth inning. The bullpen has been the source of great frustration for the second straight start of a season, and I really don’t want to dwell on the obvious of Cubs need better relievers. Instead I want to talk about the #TeaseRally on Friday. The Cubs were down four and...

A Banner Year For International Free Agents

  If we are judging by their names, that is. And I definitely am. We're still a couple of months away from the beginning of the signing period, but this fanpost over at the Minor League Ball/ MLB Bonus Baby juggneraut is well worth your attention, at the very least to bookmark now so you can convincingly scoff at Cub signings when they happen.
