Cubs Rally to Avoid Double-Dip Sweep at Fitch Park

Neftali Rosario had three hits including a solo home run and a game-tying RBI single, as one squad of Cubs and one squad of Diamondbacks played to a 3-3 tie on Field #2, and Wilson Contreras singled, doubled, and tripled, but the other squad of D’backs clubbed Frank del Valle for six runs on nine hits en route to a 6-4 victory over the other squad of Cubs on Field #3, in a Cactus...

The Chicago Cubs are not good at baseball

After staring at a blank computer screen for quite some time trying to find the words to describe this season thus far, I realized that a blank piece of paper sums up the Chicago Cubs’ first 13 games better than anything else. Seriously though, the team is bad. I have just one question. Did any of you think something else was going to happen? We all knew this team was the opposite...

Photos: Cubs fan runs out on field!

It's not easy being a fan of the Chicago Cubs. The team's history of losing is enough to drive a person insane. Need proof? Apparently this fan was so cold, so fed up and so courageous (okay, I'm being nice) that he thought his hometown Cubs could use his presence on the field on Friday. His efforts fell in vain, unfortunately, as the Lovable Losers were sent to...

Byrd Flying to Boston

Nick Cafardo was the first to report that the Cubs and Red Sox are working on a deal to send Marlon Byrd to the Red Sox. It would also make sense of the earlier roster move today where the Cubs called up Tony Campana to put Ryan Dempster on the disabled list since they still need to lose a body to make room for Randy Wells tomorrow. Bruce Levine is saying the Cubs will get a left...
