TEAMS: Chicago Cubs
The Louisville Slugger Museum and Factory is currently featuring a special "Big Leagues, Little Bricks" LEGO exhibition, with various LEGO sculptures, portraits and stadium replicas on display. One of the centerpieces of the exhibit is a replica of Wrigley Field, the historic home stadium of the Chicago Cubs, which was created by artist Sean Kenney with 57,960 bricks. Based on the photos, this is pretty impressive. H/T Gizmodo via Sportress. Visit us at holdoutsports.com and follow us on Twitter @HoldoutSports.

Alvin’s open letter to Theo Epstein after a content editor gets through with it

The other day, Alvin Yellon satisfied many of us with a classic example of his stupidity. Like many, Ryno has had a lot of fun with this. Here here is (the rest of this is from Ryno). Just for fun, I decided to look at Alvin’s open letter as an editor. All bits and hyperbole aside, I wanted to see exactly how much ******** was in there. Alvin’s original was 2,185 words, and...

If you had Luis Valbuena in the office pool, raise your hand

It’s June 19th and the Cubs are 69 games into their season. You and I probably picked Anthony Rizzo as the most productive position player on the team through this many games, assuming he remained healthy. I think most everybody would have taken Rizzo and almost no one would have taken Luis Valbuena. Well, Valbuena has had a surprisingly good start to his 2013 season and has been...

Chicago Cubs’ Henry Rodriguez Has A Bad First Day At The Office

Yesterday Henry Rodriguez became the 2nd Henry Rodriguez in my generation to play for the Chicago Cubs.  Everyone remembers O’Henry from the late 90′s. This modern day Henry Rodriguez had a bit of a rough start to his Cub career.  The first pitch was called for low and away, well it arrived low and inside, hitting the home plate ump after grazing the catchers glove.  One pitch...

Nashville Sounds 5 @ Iowa Cubs 4 (7 innings) Logan Watkins!

Brooks Raley is bad at pitching. His ERA sits at 5...

Preview: Westbrook faces Cubs and former Redbird Edwin Jackson

After a rough start to the month, the Chicago Cubs are starting to turn things around. So is scheduled starter Edwin Jackson, who goes for his third straight victory Wednesday night against the St. Louis Cardinals. The Cubs (29-40) opened June with eight losses in 10 games, but have since won four of six behind a starting rotation that has posted a 2.61 ERA. The starters have recorded...

Cubs 4, Cardinals 2

Ryan Sweeney and Cody Ransom hit back-to-back homers in a four-run first inning and that was plenty for Jeff Samardzija, who pitched the Chicago Cubs over the St. Louis Cardinals 4-2 Tuesday night.

Preview: Cardinals, Cubs wrap up four-game set at Busch

(AP) -- Among the NL leaders in wins, Lance Lynn's only loss surprisingly came against the lowly Chicago Cubs last month. Getting the best of him again could prove difficult at Busch Stadium, where the St. Louis Cardinals continue to have their way with manager Dale Sveum's club. Lynn takes the mound opposite Scott Feldman as the major league-leading Cardinals go for a...

Chris Davis Chasing 73

In 1998 Mark McGwire and Sammy Sosa took sports fans by storm, going back and forth, trying to break the MLB single season home run record.  At that time the record was 61 and it was held by Roger Maris since 1961.  On September 7, 1998, Big Mac, 34 years old, slugged home run number 61, off Mike Morgan of the Chicago Cubs, tying the record.  It was an amazing thing to witness...
