As American citizens, it is our duty to share the joy of Harry Caray with the world.
Watch as this U.S. soldier busts out a spot-on Harry Caray impression when dealing with some Iraqi civilians. The people of Iraq seem to enjoy the Chicago Cubs announcer as much as the rest of us. Maybe a little Harry Caray is all the world needs for everyone to peacefully coexist.

The simple answer to this question is that he does not have any trade value, but simple isn't good enough. That's especially true when you're talking about a player who is still owed $43.5 million through the end of 2014. The Cubs tried hard this offseason to find some team interested in taking him and didn't have much luck. We don't know what the Cubs were really...
Despite all of my grumbling about the rumored pricetag for Jorge Soler, I was ecstatic when the initial reports today said that the Cubs had signed him to a 9/30 contract. Then we discovered that whenever he has enough service time to be elgible for arbitration, he can opt out of the deal and go through the usual arbitration process to get a higher salary. After thinking on this...
Man.Getting kinda antsy for some trading to happen as I watch this team of dead men walking (or striking out or whatever).I know.Patience, right?Yeah, we all have a little practice at that.Oh well, I get a little ranty, I make a cartoon. Can't wait to make some happy ones in the future.
The Cubs apparently signed Jorge Soler today.
I hear the #Cubs won out for Jorge Soler. #Yankees tried, but didn't get him.

Bed Badler of Baseball America wrote about Soler a few days ago here. He talks about the way in which he was declared a free agent. Jim Callis wrote more about the player in February:

Dan Vogelbach singled twice, doubled, drove-in three runs, and scored three more, Carlos Penalver collected three singles and two RBI and scored two runs, and Danny Lockhart had four hits (three singles and a double) and scored twice, leading the AZL Cubs to a 12-6 victory over the Boise Hawks this morning at Fitch Park Field #3 in Mesa, AZ.Rock Shoulders (two singles, a double,...
A person familiar with the deal say the Chicago Cubs have reached an agreement with Cuban free agent outfielder Jorge Soler.
The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because nothing was officially announced Monday.
The 20-year-old Soler was sought after by several teams and is considered a five-tool player who will require some minor league seasoning....
Using Baseball Prospectus rest of season PECOTA projections I figured it might be fun to see just how many games the Cubs are expected to lose at this point. Since this is OV and we're Cubs fans we do things in reverse order. We're more focused on the 2013 draft order and which slot the [...]
The Cubs went to great lengths to outbid the competition for Cuban outfielder Jorge Soler. CBS Sports analyst Jon Heyman reported the contract was worth about $30 million over nine years. Soler, 20, is a right-handed power-hitting outfielder. His contract rights were expected to something in the neighborhood of the four-year, $36 million deal signed by Yoenis Cespedes with the...
The new collective bargaining agreement essentially puts an end to the kinds of bidding wars for young Cuban prospects that we’ve seen over the last few years, but those rules don’t go into effect for another month, so 20-year-old outfielder Jorge Soler was not bound by the new rules and was free to negotiate as large of a contract as he could get from big league clubs.
Here are the final Cubs Cactus League Extended Spring Training game statistics.

Friday night I got home from work as quick as I’m able, changed outfits and headed to the ballpark, arriving in the second inning of game one as the I-Cubs dug into the first of four games with the Nashville Sounds in barely 24 hours.
We went with a group of friends and sat at one of the picnic tables in the leftfield...
