From Press Release
Chris Clemons has resigned as head coach of the Victoria Generals baseball team after three seasons at the helm. Clemons has also stepped down from his post as assistant coach at McLennan Community College in order to accept a new position as the North Texas/North Louisiana Area Scout for the Chicago Cubs.
Clemons went 104-57 over the course of three seasons as the head coach for the Generals in the Texas Collegiate League. Clemons led the Generals to the TCL Championship Series in all three season as head coach. The Generals won the TCL Championship in 2010 under Clemons’s direction. Clemons was twice named the TCL Coach of the Year, in 2009 and 2010. The Generals fell just short of winning their second TCL title this past summer, falling in the final game of the championship series to the East Texas Pump Jacks.
“The Victoria Generals organization is very thankful for Chris’s three years of service as our head coach,” said Victoria’s GM Blake Koch. “He has impacted many lives here in the Victoria community and he will be truly missed. We wish him the best of luck in his new role with the Cubs.”
The Generals will begin a national search to fill the head coaching position for the 2013 season.

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 [...]

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...
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...

I'm not sure how many people have been following the Adam Greenberg story, but here's the jist of it: in 2005, 24-year old Chicago Cubs prospect Adam Greenberg made his major league debut, and was hit in the head by Florida Marlins reliever Valerio de los Santos on the first pitch of the game.

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 [...]
Normally, I don’t make a post about minor signings like this, but this is more than just a signing. Greenberg had 1 major league plate appearance and was hit in the head with the first pitch he faced.
Greenberg was drafted by the Chicago Cubs in the 9th round of the 2002 MLB draft out of North Carolina. Greenberg worked his way up the system and was in Double A by mid-2005.
On July 9, 2005, Adam Greenberg of the Chicago Cubs came to the plate for the first time as a Major League Baseball player. It was an undoubtedly a life long dream being accomplished for the young outfielder and it came to a sudden end. A campaign has been underway this year to get Greenberg one official at-bat in the big leagues. On Tuesday October 2, he will get that at...
