TEAMS: Chicago Cubs
Julie posed this series of questions over at LOHO today.    1) Where does this team finish in the 2013 NL Central? 2) Do the 2013 Cubs lose 100 games? 3) What moves still need to be made to make this team competitive (and be realistic, no “sign ARod” or any of that baloney). The easy [...]

Buy Alfonso Soriano’s Stupid Loaded Hummer For $36,000

If you were frequenting blogs back in 2009, there’s a good chance you are aware of the Alfonso Soriano blue 2005 Hummer H2 that captivated men who make a working wage. You remember the Soriano Hummer because of the $100k+ he spent on customization. You remember the Hummer because of the speaker wall that blocked the back window of the ride. Now you can buy that Hummer, minus a...

Cubs Injury Updates on Matt Garza, Ian Stewart

MLB.com released updates Tuesday on two players the Chicago Cubs hope to have on their Opening Day roster, starter Matt Garza and third-base hopeful Ian Stewart.

Jeff Samardzija, 2013 Fantasy Sleeper

When looking for possible candidates for a 2013 fantasy baseball sleeper post, do you know how I found Jeff Samardzija?  No, I didn’t look up the most difficult player names to spell.  That might’ve have taken me to Samardzija.  Not to mention, Saltalamacchia or Avisail Garcia.  What the hell is an Avisail anyway?  It sounds like a nautical GIF.  (BTW, say Samardzija fast...

Cubs to Sign Chang-Yong Lim

  Before we begin…Hi. My name is Mauricio, I’m a low level writing prospect that WSD decided to take a flyer on. I guess good things happen when you are generally nice to people in forums and don’t act a fool on Facebook. You can follow me on twitter @MRubio52, I usually post Foodgram pictures, cry about Derrick Rose, and compare the Cubs and their players to various art...

Around the League...

Some quick hits... - Frankly, i have no idea what effect this has on anything, but the Cubs are one of three teams to have opted out of the MLB/StubHub agreement that was recently renewed. I imagine tickets for Wrigley will still be available on StubHub, but not in some official capacity. I also imagine the Ricketts didn't like seeing tickets going for $2 on game day on StubHub...
