Found June 18, 2012 on The Sports Bank:
What follows is the the third installment of the New Era ballcaps ads featuring actors Nick Offerman and Craig Robinson sporting Chicago White Sox and Chicago Cubs caps. This one is the funniest by far; as it features Robinson in his Sox cap doing a lounge song version of “Take me out to the Ballgame.” It’s a viral vid sure to spice up the latest edition of the Red Line Series which rekindles tonight at The Cell. It’s approved by the “Ron Swanson pyramid of greatness,” or at least I think it would pass Swanson’s test. The video would also be a hit in the warehouse of Dunder Mifflin/Sabre Paul M.

How much is Matt Garza worth in a trade?

Matt Garza was eligible for arbitration for the third time this year, but since he was a super two he'll have one more year of arbitration. After the 2013 season he's eligible to file for free agency. The Cubs have a few options: trade him, keep him through next year or sign him to an extension. Like most players, maximum value for the player in the trade is in the past so...

The Children Are The Future-Cubs Minor League Update Sponsored by Cotton: The Fabric of Our Lives

Daytona Daytona returned from their ASB and Alcantara went 1-4 and stole his 19th base of the year. Whitenack continues to struggle a bit from this TJ return giving up 4 ER and 3 BB's in 3 IP. His velocity was fine just working on getting his command back. AJ MORRIS! the fellow K-State grad lowered his season ERA to 2.14. His fastball is in the mid 90's again and he has only...

White Sox sign OF Hawkins, No. 13 pick in draft

The Chicago White Sox agreed to terms on Monday with outfielder Courtney Hawkins, the No. 13th pick in this year's draft. The 18-year-old Hawkins from Corpus Christi, Texas, hit .437 with 11 home runs, 39 RBI, 17 stolen bases and 56 runs in 36 games for Carroll High School. Hawkins was the ESPNHS Gatorade Texas Baseball Player of the Year, and was rated second by Baseball America...

Cubs' Dempster placed on disabled list

Chicago Cubs pitcher Ryan Dempster, who has not allowed a run in his last 22 innings, was placed on the 15-day disabled list on Monday with tightness in his right lat. Dempster, who is 3-3 with a 2.11 ERA, has been the subject of trade rumors, but he has pitched well lately. He had gone 18 consecutive starts without a win, but has won his past three games. Randy Wells (1-1, 4...

Dodgers have interest in Cubs' RHPs Matt Garza and Ryan Dempster

I wasn't intending to write a post about the Dodgers' interest in Ryan Dempster, but it goes hand-in-hand with the Dodgers' reported interest in Matt Garza. Nathan Eovaldi has filled in admirably in the absence of Ted Lilly. There's no timetable for his return. Everyone behind Clayton Kershaw is no better than a middle-of-the-rotation starting pitcher...

MLB Trade Rumors: Would Chicago White Sox Deal Addison Reed or Nate Jones or Rotation Help?

With the way Phil Humber and Gavin Floyd have pitched recently, it’s becoming obvious that if the Chicago White Sox are going to make a move at the trade deadline, starting pitcher is where they will look. While third base and left-handed relief pitching have been issues as well, the Sox look like they are beginning to realize that they cannot expect to win a division with two...

Cuban Alexei Ramirez enjoys a pregame cigar in the dugout (Picture)

So is this the kind of pregame fuel players are using in Chicago these days? I can’t imagine this was acceptable under Ozzie Guillen, unless the player was sharing his stogies, of course. Maybe this is just what Cuban-born shortstop Alexei Ramirez grew up on. Nothing to see here, move along. H/T SB Nation Chicago via Hot Clicks

Cubs place RHP Dempster on DL

The Chicago Cubs placed Ryan Dempster on the 15-day disabled list with tightness in his right lat muscle before Monday's series opener against the White Sox. Dempster, who has been subject of trade speculation over the past few weeks, said it's something he had been dealing with for a few starts that hasn't gotten better, so the team is taking the cautious route. Dempster...

Chicago Cubs sign 15 of their 2012 Draft Picks

The Chicago Cubs have thus far signed 15 players selected in the 2012 First-Year Player Draft, including right-handed pitcher Paul Blackburn out of Heritage High School in Brentwood, Calif., who was drafted with the 56th overall pick (compensation round). But they haven’t landed their #1, Albert Almora, the #6 overall pick who appears destined to play hardball with the team. He’s...

Who Ya Gonna Call?

"If it's somthin' weird an' it don't look good..." Letting Aramis Ramirez walk for the 2012 season was the easy part. The new Cubs braintrust loves supplemental round draft choices. Picking up the one year, $16 million option on ARam, with the expectation that he would decline and lead to a supplemental 1st rounder (which turned into pick #43, college...

Red Sox 7, Cubs 4

CHICAGO -- Ryan Kalish, called up from the minor leagues earlier in the day, singled in the go-ahead run in the seventh inning and scored on a squeeze bunt to help the Boston Red Sox beat the Chicago Cubs 7-4 Sunday night at Wrigley Field. With the victory, the Red Sox took two of three from the Cubs and returned to .500 (33-33). The Cubs dropped to 22-44. Kalish started in center...
