Baseball Hot Corner:
As a die hard Chicago White Sox fan, I was saying it the whole time while watching this video. Then Buck and McCarver chimed in and finally said it. One of the few remaining humans still alive when the Chicago Cubs last won one in 1908. Dude looks 75 at best.

Should the Cubs part ways with Carlos Marmol
The worst part about seeing the Cubs lose a six game hot streak is seeing them lose because of questionable calls and pitcher slumps. Coming into last night’s game the Cubs were outscoring their opponents 36-12, with a Grand Slam in back to back games and stellar pitching performance. Jeff Samardzija took the mound to try and...
Tonight’s (well, yesterday’s, now) game was pretty terrible. The Cubs did not win. They were going to win at one point, but then weird stuff happened and somehow Carlos Marmol got most of the blame. Of course, that is fair given the win expectancy chart. Marmol’s wildness and giving up that monstrous grand slam to Paul Goldschmidt (who is very very strong and was pretty...
Jeff Samardzija has been piling up a ton of strikeouts as a starting pitcher for the Chicago Cubs this year, and that trend continued during a 12-4 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks on Sunday. Samardzija fanned 11 hitters in 6 1/3 innings of work, but he was charged with two runs that scored after he [...]
For this edition of the Minor League Report, the last before the draft that begins on Thursday, WSD will revise its Top 13 Prospects List without any new additions, simply re-ordering, based on success so far this season and projection as a teaser for the full new top prospects list that will be available shortly following the draft.
The Cubs have the second overall pick in the upcoming...

The 2013 MLB Rule 4 Amateur Draft starts on Thursday night and we’ve laid some groundwork for the proceedings here. The Cubs have exactly $10,556,500 to spend, the second largest pool in the draft, above which they will be penalized increasingly severely depending on how much they intend to spend. Here are the Cliffs notes:
There are penalties for clubs that exceed their bonus...
CHICAGO -- Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson praised Cubs starting pitcher Jeff Samardzija's performance after Saturday's game and again Sunday morning, but he also had strong words for the right-hander after hearing of a couple on-field snipes.
Samardzija exchanged words with D-backs pitcher Ian Kennedy and third base coach Matt Williams at different times in Arizona'...
Hot News for P Blake Parker
I am not a professional writer. I think I’m more of an amateur rambler. So this is going to be a ramble of sorts. I think I’m much better at writing science-y stuff where I have an experiment (or a group of experiments) set up and can then mold them into a story, and this lends itself to more train-of-thought type exercises where I frame it in the following manner:
It’s not often the Diamondbacks score 12 runs (actually never, so far in 2013) but Arizona did just that in a 12-4 victory over the Cubs Saturday night. Paul Goldschmidt led the charge, hitting an absolute bomb for his first career regular season grand slam.
Not that it should surprise anyone, but Patrick Corbin ran his record to 9-0, compiling yet another win in Sunday afternoon’s win over the Chicago Cubs 8-4.
Today is officially June, which means we can now look back at all of April and May because everyone loves arbitrary endpoints. As of May 31, the 2013 Cubs have scored 221 runs while giving up only 210. They should be better than their 23-30 record suggests, but baseball happens.
The Cubs had an offensive turnaround between April and May. In April, they were only 10-16 with...
What used to be one of the most exciting matchups in baseball is now just another inter-league matchup.
The Chicago Cubs and Chicago White Sox used to play for not only a W, but for bragging rights throughout the season. Fans used to pack the North and South side stadiums to watch these two rivals battle it out for nine or more innings; now the ballpark food is more interesting...
As the public battle as to whether or not Wrigley Field should undergo a facelift continues...the Chicago Cubs have an unlikely supporter backing them up.
Former Chicago White Sox skipper Ozzie Guillen.
"It's about time," the outspoken Guillen said. "Finally they start doing the right thing. It's 2013. I think the new owners and the new GM and the new...
