Iowa Brett Jackson had a pair of hits and stole his 3rd base of the year and Anthony Rizzo continues to mash AAA pitching to the tune of .380 as the Iowa Cubs lost 2-6. It might be time for Jay Jackson to say goodbye as he is just terrible. Yesterday also marked the debut [...]
The Cubs' bullpen continued evolving Monday with the activation of right-hander Michael Bowden. The 25-year-old Bowden came to the Cubs Saturday in the trade that sent center fielder Marlon Byrd to the Boston Red Sox. To make room, the Cubs designated veteran right-hander Rodrigo Lopez for assignment. Bowden figures to see a lot of action in the middle innings. "...

Don't worry folks, Marlon Byrd and his .070 batting average is coming to save the Boston Red Sox.
With Carl Crawford and Jacoby Ellsbury on the disabled list and Jason Repko out with a shoulder injury after crashing into the wall on Friday, the Red Sox are a little shorthanded in the outfield. So with limited options available to them, the Red Sox reached out to old friend...
