It's Time To Move On From Tyler Greene

I'm not a major league baseball player. You're not a major league baseball player. We're not in the minority; we're the vast majority. There is no shame in not having success in the highest level of a professional sport. Quite the opposite, it's an honor to be considered worthy of a chance to play in the Majors.Tyler Greene was drafted with the last pick in the...

Cubs Recap for April 23, 2012

9th inning dramatics at Wrigley and the Cubs have won 2 of 3. You probably don't want to go any farther back than that. @Cubs 3 - Cardinals 2; That certainly was an unexpected win, but let's first take a look at the expected. Garza gives up just 2 ER over 7 innings against a slightly depleted Cardinals lineup (no Berkman or John Jay). Garcia of course answers against a depleted...

The Children Are The Future-Cubs Minor League Update Sponsored by RC Cola

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 [...]

Stop It, Chicago Cubs, Just Stop It

*Dear readers, pardon me while I step away from being an unbiased observer and put on my wrathful fanboy hat* Stop it, Chicago Cubs. Just stop it. You are a 6-win team thus far, and while yes, your last two wins (unfortunately, against my World Champion St. Louis Cardinals) were full of drama, let us not forget: you suck. But you wouldn’t know that watching your celebrations the...

Bowden joins Cubs' bullpen

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. "...

Visiting teams say Cubs new scoreboard makes it hard for relievers to warm up

One of the updates the Cubs made to Wrigley Field for the 2012 season was a new LED scoreboard in right field. The new addition, which is featured in the photo above, was built on the idea of not having to clutter the bleachers with advertisements. This way, ads can be rotated through the scoreboard sitting under the right field bleachers and are less invasive to the park itself...

The 2012 Minor League Report – Week 4

With the Chicago Cubs trade of Marlon Byrd, outfielder Brett Jackson inches another step closer to making his major league debut though the team insists they will not rush him to the major leagues. Jackson is currently hitting .253 in 75 at bats with two home runs, eight RBI and three stolen bases. His strikeout rate is still cause for concern at 28% this season, which is going...

Cardinals-Cubs Preview

(AP) -- The St. Louis Cardinals' rotation has done an excellent job so far, which could be even more important with two big bats out of the lineup. The Cardinals will try for a third straight win over the Chicago Cubs on Monday night in the opener of a three-game series at Wrigley Field. Led by a rotation boasting a 2.75 ERA, St. Louis is off to a promising start with one of...
