Cubs go for their first series win of the year...a little short-handed.

Finishing baseball’s regular season at 73-89 may not seem like much, but for fans of the Chicago Cubs, 2014 was successful and gave hope for the future. With the Cubs’ President of Baseball Operations, Theo Epstein, announcing the team’s goal in 2015 being the NL Central title, this offseason looks to be a meaningful one.
Here are four burning questions about the Cubs’ offseason...
The Chicago Cubs are coming off of one of the most dominating pitching series they have been involved in in quite some time. In a three game series with the Cincinnati Reds, the Cubs were able to shut them out two times and hold them to one run in the series finale en route to a dominating sweep.
Coming into the series with the Reds, the Cubs were struggling having lost eight of...
What a night! I spent last evening at Razzball's Boston stop of the #32in32in32 tour kicking it with the one and only Nick Capozzi, Smokey (my new best friend) and a whole bunch of Razzaholics at the Greatest Bar in Boston (obnoxious Boston bar name alert). Though the focus was football, there was a whole lot of Daily Fantasy baseball talk with so many daily junkies in the building...
Chicago’s Hendricks has demonstrated great command thus far (Photo: Veeoz.com)
I’m a believer in Kyle Hendricks. He doesn’t have overpowering stuff (the fastball sits 85-92 mph), but he’s able to throw the fastball anywhere in the strike zone (and out of the strike zone). Not only does he have exceptional command of the fastball he has the same level command of his secondary...
Week 20 Two Start Pitchers
Last week there were a number of big time aces as Two Start Pitchers. In Week 20 there are only a handful of elite Two Start Pitchers with only eight games Monday and eight games on Thursday. If you own a couple aces and you don’t have many starts, this marks as a good week to stream if you can. With that said, it’s good to get these weeks out of the...
The excitement of prospects has been filling up most Cub fans for the last couple of seasons, and now we have finally gotten a sneak preview of what the Cubs future will hold. Rookies like Javier Baez and Kyle Hendricks have shown a glimpse of what a winning Cubs team could hold, and with a lot more appearances to be made, the Cubs future is finally showing that light that we have...
With the recent trade that sent Jeff Samardzija and Jason Hammel to the Oakland Athletics, two holes have opened up in the Chicago Cubs’ starting rotation. Carlos Villanueva made a spot-start on Saturday, which would have been Samardzija’s turn in the rotation, but he was unlikely going to be a long term fit in that role. Every pitcher in the Triple-A rotation was qualified and...
