Found June 12, 2013 on Philliedelphia:
PLAYERS: Nate Schierholtz
TEAMS: Chicago Cubs
I can list many reasons that I am upset with Phillies management in this putrid, lifeless, uninspiring 2013 season. But one thing I do not fault the Phillies for is their decision to non-tender outfielder Nate Schierholtz after the 2012 season. In today's Philadelphia Daily News, Phillies beat writer Ryan...

Should Javier Baez be promoted to AA?

Let me start by saying that I cannot answer this question. The Cubs have way more information than I do and I won't criticize them if at some point they choose to promote him. I won't criticize them if they leave him in High A. I want to talk about something specifically. It's a comment I often hear and believe I read yesterday (may have been something Myles wrote, but...

Travis Wood (photo credit: Brian Kersey/Getty Images North America) Is there a reasonable case in saying that the Chicago Cubs should have more players representing the team in the 2013 Major League Baseball All-Star game? Yes, the Cubs started off with a rocky April and early May; Yes, they are currently going through a losing streak in series wins; yes, they have struggling pitching...

Where Is Our Breaking Point as Cubs Fans?

I went to the game last night to see the big Cingrani vs. Garza matchup that, while not exactly the pitching porn of a Verlander vs. Darvish or Wainwright vs. Kershaw matchup, I had hoped it would be at least a Cinemax softcore pitching porn display.  Unfortunately, it ended up being more of a pitching snuff film from the Cubs side as Garza got bound, whipped, and violated repeatedly...

Alright, let's find some sunshine through all the ****, eh? Your Bright Spots for today: Fairly decent day for the trade bait on the major league club: Nate Schierholtz was 1-3, with a home run that briefly gave the Cubs the lead.

MiLB Check-in: Cubs Long-Term Sticks

JOT: Cubs Minor League Recap 6-12-13

Iowa Cubs 5 @ Oklahoma City Bombers 8 Ian Stewart's goodbye game went ok, with a home run and a walk and two runs scored. Logan Watkins went 1-5. Normally, I'm a big fan of Luke's at Bleacher Nation, but I thought it was funny when yesterday he said Logan was slowly heating up. Well, he's heating up so slowly that his OPS over the last 10 games is actually lower...

BS of the Day: 6-10-13

It's depressing being a Cubs fan lately. The offense is terrible, the rotation seems to be coming back to earth, Starlin Castro is mired in the worst slump of his career, the best bullpen arm we have is Kevin Gregg…it's not pretty. Given all this, it seems worthwhile to try and find something to be optimistic about, some glimmer of light at the end of this dark, dark...
