A Poem from Mr. Linares (we will answer your personal questions at the end)
TWoody (Travis Wood) vs. Sean Marshman (Sean Marshall AKA The One)
Dale Sveum, Patsy?
Bullpen Arm vs. Rotation Arm and why you always trade Marshall for Wood
BEST OF MAXIM
Josh Conway, Erick Leal, and Carlos Martinez combined to throw a three-hitter, retiring the last ten men a row, and David Bote drilled an RBI single to tie the game and Jacob Rogers followed one out later with a sacrifice fly to give the Cubs the lead, as one squad of Cubs rallied for two runs in the 5th and held on to edge one squad of Diamondbacks 2-1 on Whirlwind Field, and...
Used to be, earlier in his career, Alfonso Soriano was the very model of an undisciplined hitter. He got a lot of press, because he was a Yankee, and back in 2002, Soriano drew 22 unintentional walks while striking out 157 times. He also mashed 39 dingers, so it’s not like there was much reason for Soriano to change. But as time has gone by, it seems like Soriano has drawn less...
Michael Bowden watches Jay Bruce’s game tying double roll to the wall
The Cubs were at it again tonight but this time Carlos Marmol somehow stayed out of the spotlight. The Cubs are not a great team but they have Theo Epstein so they will probably win a World Series soon despite severed goat’s heads. Tonight it almost seemd liek they would steal one from the Reds. In the...
In tonight’s game, Carlos Villanueva was tasked to go the distance because of the taxed bullpen from last night’s marathon, but was pulled in favor of Carlos Marmol once a bunt moved Shin-Soo Choo to second base and Joey Votto was up. The ensuing plate appearance produced a seeing-eye ground ball. If you look at the video, while the grounder was hit very sharply, it was within...
Iowa Cubs - Brett Jackson is doing pretty much what you would expect Brett Jackson to do: striking out more than once per game, getting on base at a fine .354 clip, and stealing three bases this season. The thing to watch for with Jackson is not the strikeout rate – it will always be a problem for him – but the slugging percentage that current sits at just .381. A moderate...
Carlos Marmol blew a lead in the ninth before Darwin Barney bailed him out with a homer in the 10th inning on Tuesday night, lifting the Chicago Cubs to a 4-2 victory over the Cincinnati Reds.
Chicago ended its four-game losing streak after blowing a late lead for the second straight day. The Cubs let a two-run lead get away in the 13th inning of a 5-4 loss Monday night.

The Cubs lost in epic fashion tonight. It was spectacular and glorious. In some ways it was predictable, but they were facing a very good Reds offense and did not have their best defense in place. This is as good a time as any to vent, even though it’s still April.
Things we know to be true…
The Reds are good.
The Cubs are bad.

Last weekend, the Brewers won two games thanks to several timely errors by the Cubs. In games started by Edwin Jackson and Scott Feldman, the Brewers took the lead on unearned runs both times. It seems like a shame for Jackson and Feldman to get tagged with losses in those cases (as much as the Cubs losing can be a “shame” anyway).
It got me thinking...
