Tennessee Smokies 2 @ Mississippi Braves 3 (11 innings)
Matt Szczur drew the start in center, going 0-5 with a walk. He's been really frigid as of late. Ronald Torreyes continues his impressive start with a 2-5, 1 R, 1 RBI performance. He also struck out once. Arismendy Alcantara has had a really rough patch, but had a double and a strikeout to go with his 1-5 line. Ty Wright went 2-4 with a double and an RBI, and Christian Villanueva went 1-4 with a double and a walk (and 2 strikeouts). Everyone else had a day I'd rather not talk about, except that pitcher Alberto Cabrera had a stolen base. The Smokies as a team struckout 17 times, which is ******* disgraceful (but at least it was 11 innings).
Alberto Cabrera is ready for Iowa. He went 6.0 IP, allowing 2 walks and 2 hits and striking out 8. He's been dominant his last two starts. AJ Morris shat himself in relief; as is his custom, he allowed 2 R in just 0.1 IP (Trey McNutt allowed one of his 3 inherited runners...

The Cubs have reinstated 3B Ian Stewart from the 15-day DL and optioned him to AAA Iowa.
Stewart suffered a strained quad in an intrasquad game in February, and missed the entire 2013 MLB Cactus League Spring Training schedule. He was placed on the Cubs MLB 15-day Disabled List on March 31st (retro to 3/22), and was left behind at Extended Spring Training when the Cubs left Arizona...
The Iowa Cubs and Kane County Cougars were postponed.

Dallas Beeler threw 6.2 innings, allowed only 1 hit and no runs. He walked 3 and struckout 5. In 38 innings already, he’s allowed 29 hits, 3 of which have been home runs. He’s walked only 10 and struckout 22. It would be easy to say that Beeler is going to have to strikeout more batters...

Just by taking the field today the Iowa Cubs snapped their three-game skid at the hands of Mother Nature. Then they proceeded to hand Oklahoma City its first loss in a week by whipping the Redhawks 5-2 in the first game of a twinbill at Principal Park with a little help from rehabbing Kyuji Fujikawa.

On Wednesday, Chicago Cubs owner Tom Ricketts threatened to find a new home for the team if renovations plans for Wrigley Field were denied.On Thursday, the Schaumburg Boomers, an independent league baseball club who play their home games 25 miles west of Chicago, decided to strike while the iron was hot. The Boomers offered the Cubs a chance to play games at their home stadium should...
After Saturday’s loss, Chicago Cub fans have completely given up on Carlos Marmol, and manager Dale Sveum has been thrown into the fire right along with him. Fans are getting tired of seeing Marmol trotted out to the mound game after game, only to see him give fans heart attacks, and finding a way to grab defeat from the jaws of victory. They want Marmol gone from the team, and...

Darwin Barney of the Cubs got up and personal with a bench on Friday as he chased after a foul ball. The result was a pretty solid collision with a bench but the young man rubbed some dirt on it and he was fine.

When I think about great actors, I think about Warren Beatty, Tom Hanks, Rock Hudson and Julio Borbon?!?
During Thursday's Padres/Cubs affair at Wrigley, Borbon was facing Padres pitcher Luke Gregerson and pulled off one of the worst acting jobs in MLB history.
Watch as a Gregerson pitch goes a tad outside and fails to hit Bourbon but that doesn't stop Julio from acting...
The Cubs kicked off their 10-game home stand with a four-game series against the Padres. There were great outings by our starting pitchers, and by “our starting pitchers,” I mean the Cubs starting pitchers. Offensively, the Cubs seem to be getting more life, they finished off the month of April with 35 home runs, which is third in franchise history. Defensively they need...
Before yesterday's bottom of the ninth, Aroldis Chapman had allowed 5 hits, 2 walks, and 1 measly run over 13.1 IP. Friday, the Cubs got to him for 4 hits, 2 BB, and 3 runs in just two-thirds of an inning, and his ERA jumped from 0.68 to 2.57. It was also just the second time in 17 career appearances v. the Cubs that Chapman has been scored upon at all. Thus, I am counting yesterday...
Chicago Cubs pitcher Jeff Samardzija cut his hand open on a baseball, and that bloody ball was then sold at an auction for the Cincinnati Reds' charity.
The Cubs dropped thier third straight game yesterday. Two of the past three games where lost due to 4 run eighth inning. The bullpen has been the source of great frustration for the second straight start of a season, and I really don’t want to dwell on the obvious of Cubs need better relievers. Instead I want to talk about the #TeaseRally on Friday.
The Cubs were down four and...
John Polonius blasted a two-run home run with two outs in the bottom of the 4th to break a 4-4 tie and propel the Giants to a 6-4 victory on Field #1, and Jonathan Jones belted a two-run walk-off double off the LF fence on a 3-0 pitch with two outs in the bottom of the 5th as the Giants edged the Cubs 4-3 on Field #2 (thus sweeping the doubleheader), in Cactus League Extended...
