Less than one month until Chicago Cubs baseball is on the air! WGN Radio will broadcast nine games. I wouldn't be surprised if most of the rest are covered on Gameday Radio, as was the case last year. No word yet on any televised games, though I would be surprised if any are non-weekend games.
The post Spring Training Broadcast Schedule Announced appeared first on Obstructed View.

I am not sure how closely you have been paying attention, but the Chicago Cubs have been making a number of free agent signings over the off season making their 40 man roster a mess, Their free agent signings did not stop last night when reports came out of the newest acquisition Scott Hairston, formerly with the New York Mets. Even though the ball club has not yet confirmed the...
The Chicago Cubs plan on restoring Wrigley Field, with or without the city's help.
The team announced a five-year, $300 million plan to rebuild the Friendly Confines at the annual Cubs Convention on Saturday, and owner Tom Ricketts said his family is willing to foot the entire bill -- but only if some long-standing restrictions are lifted.
"[We would] like to be treated...
Sammy Sosa had an opportunity to go down in history as one of the best Chicago Cubs ever. Then in 2003 a report came out that labeled Sosa as one of many players the used PED’s, and well the rest is history.
Sosa now says he’s ready to forgive the Cubs, and during a live webcast that he set up, stated that the Cubs should have been retired his #21 jersey via ESPN Chicago.
Sammy Sosa answered several questions during a web chat, and he said that he and Mark McGwire should be in the Hall of Fame.
In the 2000s, the Chicago Cubs and the owners of the rooftops surrounding Wrigley Field had quite a tiff going on. The Cubs put up fences in the bleachers blocking the view of the Wrigleyville rooftops, so the rooftop owners built their seats higher above it. Then the ballclub put up another screen blocking the view, claiming it was for “post 9/11 security screens.” After years...
The Chicago Cubs, adding another veteran to their outfield, have reached agreement with free agent Scott Hairston on a two-year contract, according to major league sources.
Hairston, 32, figures to platoon with another free-agent signee, Nate Schierholtz, in right field. David DeJesus is projected to be in center and Alfonso Soriano in left.

Sammy Sosa thinks he and fellow steroid-tainted star Mark McGwire belong in the Hall of Fame.
Slammin' Sammy also said the Chicago Cubs should retire his number, and he left open the possibility of running for president of the Dominican Republic during an interview Wednesday on the website Ustream.com.
Asked if he thinks he or McGwire belong in the Hall, Sosa said: ''...
First base looks to be quite a bit rosier for the Cubs than catcher does. They Cubs have a budding star at the top and some very intriguing options at the bottom.
Last we checked in on former Chicago Cubs slugger Sammy Sosa, he allowed me to absolutely, 100% legitimately spend two days with him and his new public relations team, as they are trying to attempt to rebuild his image with the hopes of getting him back into the good graces of the incredibly evil Baseball Writers Association of America. Basically, it seems that Sosa wants to get...
Sammy Sosa woke up. Someone must’ve told him he didn’t get elected to the Hall of Fame. Now he’s all over the media talking about he deserves to be in the Hall of Fame, and how the Cubs should’ve retired his number a long time ago. To the first point, I say no. [...]
It’s pretty rare that I ever side with “The Man” in any business argument, and yet here I am, siding with Tom Ricketts when it comes to his little border war with the Rooftop association.
To be honest, however, this isn’t a case of “The Man” vs. small business. This is “The Man” pitted against a smaller “The Man” situation.
Let’s backtrack a bit.
You see, the...
