Kansas City Royals: Welcome Jorge Soler

Closer Wade Davis Traded To Cubs; Royals Get Outfielder Jorge Soler

The Chicago Cubs have solved their closer problem. The World Series champions acquired Wade Davis from the Kansas City Royals on Wednesday in exchange for outfielder Jorge Soler. The Cubs got closer Aroldis Chapman at the non-waiver trade deadline, but he’s now a free agent, and Chicago never seemed to show much interest in re-signing him. Davis pitched just 43 1/3 innings in 2016...

Lineup Roulette: How Much Will Jorge Soler Play?

It’s July, the weather in Chicago is steamy, and despite a stretch of baseball that has made much of the city cringe, the Cubs appear to be getting healthy coming out of the break. Tommy La Stella has already come off the DL, and several other important pieces are shortly behind him. David Ross should […]

Jorge Soler’s Injury: What It Means Now, and In the Future

Jorge Soler suffered a left hamstring strain while running to first base during Monday’s game against the Phillies. That story is, unfortunately, a familiar one for Cubs fans at this point. The young, promising slugger only recently appeared to be emerging from his early-season doldrums with one of his patented hot streaks, and Cubs fans […]

Jorge Soler Might Have Worked Something Out

Jorge Soler ended his 2015 season, which was a mixed bag overall, on a pretty high note with an amazing October that helped carry the Cubs through the NLDS. But since? Things haven’t been so good.  First, he became the odd man out in the four-man outfield. Then, when Kyle Schwarber went down with his […]

Jorge Soler uses paper cups to make clever sculpture during game (PHOTO)

Chicago Cubs outfielder Jorge Soler did all he could to help make sure the team held on to win 9-8 on Wednesday afternoon. Not only did he watch and cheer from the bench, but he also used that same time to take a handful of empty paper cups and made binoculars out of them. That’s how you make constructive use of your time when bored.

Where the Cubs Go With Jorge Soler

There’s not a single thing the Cubs need to do. They’re outstanding right now, and at a time when people can still buy Christmas presents without expedited shipping, the roster could be considered complete. Probably, the Cubs will come out of this offseason as NL Central favorites. From there, they could remain favorites, but I don’t want to spook any fans who might’ve become...

The Best Thing About All Nine Jorge Soler Plate Appearances

One of the great intrigues of the postseason is that when the final page turns on the regular season, the book slams shut. Anything that happened in the previous 162 games is firmly in the past, and anyone lucky enough to play more than that is granted a second chance to change something about the way his season is ultimately remembered, whether for good or for bad. Forget what happened...
