A Fond Farewell? Cole Hamels No-Hits Chicago Cubs

The last time the Chicago Cubs had a no-hitter thrown against them, by Sandy Koufax in 1965, they had Hall of Famers Billy Williams, Ron Santo, and Ernie Banks in the heart of their lineup. Time will tell what the future holds for Anthony Rizzo, Jorge Soler, and Chris Denorfia, but at least they’ve matched the Cubs legends in one regard: they’ve batter 3-4-5 in a game in which...

Cubs 7, Cardinals 4 – game 1 (7/7/15)

Cubs 1, Mets 0 (6/30/15)

OSS: Cubs pull a win out of their hat. Three up 1. Kyle Hendricks looked sharp last night, going six innings with no runs and six strikeouts.

Cubs manager Joe Maddon's solution for improving MLB instant replay: Nerds

Never one to hold his tongue, Chicago Cubs manager Joe Maddon ripped an umpiring decision Wednesday night on a play at second base in which Chris Denorfia was tagged out to end the game, a 5-2 Dodgers victory. And Maddon thinks that nerds can deliver more clarity. Denorfia hit a shot to left field that Scott Van Slyke fielded off the wall and heaved to second base where an umpire...

Cubs Need to Stop Playing with Two Outfielders

The Cubs got back on track with two wins against the Padres, and hopefully, they can continue to find themselves over .500 as June approaches. The team continues to play well, but still has flaws to address. Some players, like Castro, have struggled recently, but the output out of left field has struggled all year round. A solution for this position needs to be found soon or the...
