Taking advantage of two costly Cub errors, the Angels rallied for three runs in the top of the 8th and edged the Cubs 4-3 in Cactus League Extended Spring Training action this morning at Fitch Park Field #3 in Mesa, AZ.
While the Cubs were playing the Angels on Field #3, Brian Smith, Su-Min Jung, Amaury Paulino, and Ryan Hartman worked in a four inning “sim” game on Field...
The Cubs have DFA'd Blake DeWitt and re-caled Travis Wood who will start today against the Dodgers. I don't believe Berselius published a projection for Wood, but Oliver did project him to be worth 2.5 WAR at the time the Cubs traded Sean Marshall for him. Wood has had mixed results so far at Iowa.

Iowa It was a pitching duel in Des Moines yesterday as Brett Jackson scored the only run of the game on a balk. Casey Coleman was the pitcher for Iowa working 7 IP and only giving up 2 hits. He struck out 9 batters and has a respectable ERA of 3.48. Scott Maine finished the [...]
The Cubs have been scuffling and scrambling to find healthy bodies all weekend. No, the
injury bug didn't bite them again. This time, it was a flu-like bug, and it has left
manager Dale Sveum short in several areas. Over the weekend, the Cubs were forced to scratch right-hander Matt Garza from starts
on Saturday and Sunday, pushing him back to the end of the week. ...
Name: Adrian Cardenas Position: Bench/Utility Bats/Throws: Left/Right Current Age: 24 Uniform Number: 45 Who is this ******* guy? He's a former first round pick of the Phillies (2006), who actually appeared on Baseball America's Top 100 list in 2008 (#76) and 2009 (#74). He's been bouncing back and forth between the AA and AAA levels [...]
Say what you want about the Chicago Cubs (and God knows I've said my fair share), but inviting people up to the pressbox to sing out "Take Me Out to the Ballgame" is one of baseball's best traditions.With or without a holographic Harry Caray .Seriously though, how awesome is this picture of WWE Champ, Chicago native (and Steve Bartman hater) CM Punk doing the...

During his chat last Wednesday, Dave Cameron ranked the top MLB shortstops as Troy Tulowitzki, Jose Reyes, and then a huge chasm before the next best guy. As we are no longer in the era of offensive shortstops, the guys who can swing a big stick like Tulo really stand out from the crowd. I agree with Dave for the most part, but there is one guy I would add to that list who is quickly...
CHICAGO (AP) -- Jeff Samardzija allowed five hits and a run over seven strong innings, and Bryan LaHair, Ian Stewart and Geovany Soto each homered Monday night to lead the Chicago Cubs over the Atlanta Braves 5-1.
Samardzija (4-1) gave up a solo homer to Jason Heyward in the second inning, walked two and struck out seven in a 105-pitch outing to help the Cubs win for the third time...
Iowa Brett Jackson had a good game going 2-3 with a BB and a HR. Jackson is now batting .259 on the year. I think the end might have come for Jay Jackson. He just isn't any good anymore and his 6.75 ERA suggests he might not even be a good AAA arm. Jackson's decline [...]
David DeJesus drew a bases-loaded walk in the bottom of the 11th inning to lift the Chicago Cubs to a 4-3 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers on Sunday.
The win came after the teams waited out a 2-hour, 41-minute rain delay, and a ninth-inning comeback by the Cubs.
Darwin Barney led off the 11th with a double. Wellington Castillo was intentionally walked and pinch-hitter Jeff...
CHICAGO (AP) -- Atlanta Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez was ejected in the seventh inning of Monday night's game against the Chicago Cubs by home plate umpire Chris Conroy.
After Chicago's David DeJesus was hit by a pitch from reliever Eric O'Flaherty, Conroy warned both benches, prompting Gonzalez to come out of the dugout and seconds later he was ejected. Atlanta'...
The Cubs just managed to take 2 of 3 from the NL's best team and now face another one of the best teams in the Atlanta Braves. The Braves are a half game behind the Nationals in the NL East, but have won 3 in a row. Pitching Matchups Monday, May 7, 7:05 PM CT, [...]
