With Cubs playoff bound, Williams thinks of Banks, Santo

CHICAGO (AP) Billy Williams couldn't help but let his mind drift, thinking about his old teammates Ernie Banks and Ron Santo. At a time like this, it was only natural.

Cubs 6, Mets 1 (7/2/15)

Figuratively though, the Mets didn’t do much to worry him in this game aside from a double from the opposing pitcher that came around to score.

Road to Opening Day: #3

On the last game of the Cactus League slate prior to two exhibition games at Chase Field against the Arizona Diamondbacks, the Chicago Cubs eked out a victory over the Chicago White Sox in the 2014 farewell to new Cubs Park in Mesa.  I don’t think I’ve ever seen an umpire induce an out before today: Nice to see Justin Ruggiano play some defense and shrug it off like it was...
