Dugout Digest – the Royals are fading away

I think it’s a bit misleading to say that the Kansas City Royals are fading, which I did in the subject of this post, but Kansas City has lost two in a row to Detroit in interesting fashion. The Royals got pummeled from pillar to post on Friday, and barely lost on Saturday, thanks in large part to a controversial call in the sixth inning. But let’s not put all of the blame on...

Chris Coghlan Quietly Producing for the Cubs

It’s easy to fall under the radar these days playing for the Cubs, unless you are one the many young prospects/future corner stones playing in the majors or minor leagues these days. All the talk, rightfully so, is about how the future is bright with Javy Baez, Kris Bryant and Jorge Soler on their way to join All-Stars Starlin Castro and Anthony Rizzo. What we aren’t talking...

Random observation from tonight’s Cubs victory

In tonight’s not-so-expected Cubs victory against the Mets, I noticed something interesting.  Well, interesting to me, anyway. Most, if not all, of the damage was done by Cubs lefties. This Coghlan guy did something awesome against a lefty! (Jeffrey Phelps, Getty Images) Now I wish they wouldn’t take so darned long to figure it out, but the first Cubs run since Saturday scored...
