Iowa Cubs 5 @ Omaha Storm Chasers 1 Dave Sappelt went 3-5 with a double. Logan Watkins had a 4-5 day. Darnell McDonald, Luis Flores, and Ty Wright were all 2-5, Flores adding a double. Junior Lake was the only I-Cub without a hit, and he walked once. The roster had 16 hits with only 2 going for extra bases, which seems to happen a ton with this club. Chris Rusin had a good rebound start, tossing 7 innings of 5 hit ball, walking 1 and striking out 2. He has 63 strikeouts in 110 innings this season and a 1.40 GO/AO. Meh. Jackson Generals 1 @ Tennessee Smokies 2 This game was suspended in the top of the 2nd. Ronald Torreyes, Arismendy Alcantara, and Rubi Silva each had a hit. Daytona Cubs 13 @ Tampa Yankees 6 Javier Baez busted out of his mini-slump, going 3-6 with a homer. Wes Darvill and Zeke DeVoss were each 2-5 with a homer and a walk, DeVoss adding a SB. Dustin Geiger was 1-4. He was hit in the head with a pitch but stayed in the game. Somehow this resulted in the Tampa manager getting ejected. Whuck. Bijan Rademacher was 2-5 in his A+ debut. Ben Carhart was 1-5. Chadd Krist was the only D-Cub without a hit, going 0-5. Taylor Davis had a 2-4 day with a double and a walk. And Pin-Chieh Chen was 2-5.  Yao-Lin Wang had a bad day, tossing 2.2 innings, walking 4, and giving up 4 runs on 3 hits. He struck out nobody. Austin Reed threw 3.1 innings in relief and was much better, allowing 1 hit and striking out 5. Eduardo Figueroa worked the final 3, giving up 2 runs on 5 hits and a walk, punching out 2. Chicago Cubs 4 @ Seattle Mariners 5 (10 innings) Really need to just create a boilerplate template for these recaps. [Travis Wood] was the day's starter and was really quite good, holding [The Mariners] to [2 runs, 3 hits, and 3 walks with 6 strikeouts in 6.1 innings] and leaving with a [3 run] lead. Unfortunately, [awful defense] and [the terrible bullpen] let the opposition back into the game, and the Cubs lost. C'est la vie.  Alfonso Soriano had a good day out of the DH spot, going 2-4 with a no-doubt homer in the 7th. Dioner Navarro was 2-4 with a homer, and continues to be damn productive for a backup catcher, hitting .269/.340/.538 in 103 PAs. In a limited role, he's beating his career totals for wOBA and wRC+ by huge margins. So congrats to him. Anthony Rizzo was 1-4 with a double. Ryan Sweeney was 1-4 with a triple. Brian Bogusevic was 1-4 and made an incredibly boneheaded defensive play in the 8th, leaving his feet on a Raul Ibanez liner I don't think he really had any shot at, allowing a triple and scored the tying run. Bad Bogey. Beloit Snappers 2 @ Kane County Cougars 0 The Cougars got 4-hit on the day, and only put 2 runners in scoring position. Dan Vogelbach was 2-4, Rock Shoulders was 1-4 and Reggie Golden was 1-3. Marco Hernandez stole a base after drawing a walk. Michael Heesch worked 7 innings of 1 run ball, allowing 5 hits and a walk with three strikeouts. Stephen Perakslis worked 2 innings, allowing a solo home run, but striking out 2 and walking none. Eugene Emeralds 4 @ Boise Hawks 5 (10 Innings) Jacob Hannemann was 2-5 with a triple. Shawon Dunston had a nice game was 1-2 with a double, 2 walks, and a SB. He's hitting .341/.420/.477/.897 to start the year. Rony Rodriguez hit a pinch hit homer in his only AB. Jacob Rogers was 1-3 with 2 walks. Lance Rymel was 1-4 with a SB. Duane Underwood was pretty alright, throwing 4.1 innings, allowing 3 runs (2 earned) on 4 hits and 3 Ks. Ethan Elias gave up a run in 2.2 innings, allowing 3 hits and a walk with 1 K. Orbandy Rodriguez worked 2 scoreless innings, walking and striking out 1. Matt Iannazzo finished it off in extras, giving up a hit and striking out 1 in the 10th. DSL Nationals 0 @ DSL Cubs 3 Jose Paulino worked 5 scoreless innings and struck out 8. He allowed 3 hits and a walk. The post JOT: Cubs Minor League Recap 6-28-13 appeared first on Obstructed View.

Chicago Cubs have trade bait

This year is obviously not going to be the year for the Chicago Cubs. With a 35-45 record and three of the best teams in all of baseball in their division, it is going to take a miracle for the Cubs to make the post-season. It’s not that the Cubs have no talent this year, they just haven’t been able to put all of their pieces together at the same time (and the bullpen piece is...

Someone actually wants Carlos Marmol?

A few days ago, the Cubs finally cried “uncle” and designated Carlos Marmol for assignment, effectively saying their farewells to one of the most dominant yet terrible relievers in Cubs history.  There was no way in hell the Cubs were getting anything of consequence back for Marmol in a trade, and now that Marmol resides in DFA limbo (he has to sit ten days before he can be...

Cubs Rumors: Matt Garza draws interest from many teams

It is no secret that Chicago Cubs starting pitcher Matt Garza is a certain trade candidate. In fact, if not for season-ending arm problems last year, he most likely would not have finished 2012 in Chicago. This year, even after suffering a Spring Training lat injury that kept him out until May 21, Garza is still one of the hottest names on the trade market. On June 28, CBS Sports...

Carlos Marmol: A look back on his Chicago Cubs career

On Tuesday the Chicago Cubs announced that relief pitcher Carlos Marmol was designated for assignment. The former all-star has had trouble in each of the last three seasons, including his lackluster performance so far this year. Let’s take a look back at Marmol’s career with the Chicago Cubs organization. The beginning. Carlos Marmol was signed by the Cubs as an amateur free...

Cubs outfielder Ryan Sweeney has broken rib

Chicago Cubs outfielder Ryan Sweeney will be placed on the disabled list after breaking a rib on his left side crashing into an outfield wall. Chicago made the announcement Sunday, a day after he was hurt, and said Sweeney will be held out of baseball activities for four-to-six weeks. Sweeney is hitting .295 with four home runs and 15 RBIs since he came up from Triple-A Iowa on...

Cubs get approval for some Wrigley renovations

The Chicago Cubs have been cleared to move forward with their $500 million renovation of Wrigley Field - except for the large video screen that the team's chairman says is an essential element. Chairman Tom Ricketts says the outfield Jumbotron and the advertising revenue it would generate are needed to fund the remodeling of the historic ballpark without a public subsidy. The...

Cubs' Ryan Sweeney day-to-day after crashing into outfield wall

The Chicago Cubs have already lost center fielder David DeJesus for a yet undetermined amount of time with a sprained right shoulder that he suffered on June 14 when he crashed into a wall trying to make a catch. Now, replacement center fielder Ryan Sweeney nearly suffered a similar fate doing the same thing. Sweeney crashed into Safeco Field's center field wall while making...

JOT: Cubs Minor League Recap 6-27-13

Chicago Cubs 7 @ Milwaukee Brewers 2 CastroWatch: Starlin was 2-5 with a double and a SB. Progress. Dioner Navarro was 1-4 with a homer. Matt Garza was 2-3, and, more importantly, carved up the Brewers, striking out 10 in seven innings and allowing 1 run on a walk and 8 hits. Price of the brick goin' up. Iowa Cubs 4 @ Omaha Storm Chasers 2 Decent amount of offense in this one...

On Matt Garza’s Last Three Starts

The Cubs didn’t have hearty expectations entering the year, but coming on the heels of some nice acquisitions, it wasn’t inconceivable that they would hang around and make some noise in the pennant race. And in a just world, perhaps they would have. They have played better than their record all season, and in fact still carry just a -12 run differential into this weekend’s...

Chicago Cubs throwbacks for game against Seattle Mariners

The Chicago Cubs are going to be wearing these throwback uniforms against the Seattle Mariners for their weekend series starting on June 29th.  The jerseys are an updated version of their 1909 uniforms and they look pretty good.  It’s always great when teams mix up their uniforms with some throwbacks.

Cubs 5, Mariners 3(11)

Alfonso Soriano hit a two-run homer in the 11th inning to lift the Chicago Cubs to a 5-3 victory over the Seattle Mariners on Saturday. Nate Schierholtz opened the 11th with a drag bunt off Oliver Perez (2-2). Soriano then connected on a 1-2 pitch over the center-field wall, his ninth. That ended a 14-game scoreless streak for Perez. The Mariners had tied the game with two outs...

Video: Mike Zunino hits first career walk-off hit to beat Chicago Cubs

It took 10 innings and a walk-off hit from catcher Mike Zunino for the Seattle Mariners to finally send those loveable losers, the Chicago Cubs, home for their Friday night.

Almost Halfway

Three months into the 2013 season, we’ve seen many things happen.  We’ve seen quality start after quality start blown by an inconsistent bullpen.  We’ve seen the departure of some not-so-popular Cubs players.  We’ve seen some bad baseball.  Yet, despite all this, the Cubs are still 35-45, only 10 games under .500, with a five-win improvement over the previous season after...
