Chicago Cubs catcher Kyle Schwarber making a name for himself

The Chicago Cubs have had a solid season this year (35-29), but have yet to have consistent play from the catching position.

Could Cubs be buyers at trade deadline?

  If the Cubs keep playing well they could be buyers at the trade deadline, perhaps adding depth or some additional bullpen help. While it remains to be seen what the Cubs will do, catcher David Ross has been on teams that have bought at the deadline and knows what kind of boost it can provide the team. “When I was in Boston, they went out and got Jake Peavy in ’13,” Ross...

Watch: Rajai Davis leaping catch robs David Ross of home run

Giving up the home run ball has been a problem for Tigers pitcher Anibal Sanchez this season. He’s served up 13 long balls this season, tied for the most among AL pitchers. That’s quite a spike for a pitcher who allowed 25 homers combined during his past three seasons. Facing the Cubs Tuesday night, Sanchez was about to give up home run No. 14 to David Ross. But Rajai Davis helped...

Is David Ross Really That Bad?

by CubsfaninCA A lot of people have been complaining since we signed David Ross.  Many felt we had to give up a better catcher (Welly) for very little as a result. Others say Lester shouldn’t have a “personal catcher.” But mostly everyone talks about how he’s an automatic out in the lineup.  Well, folks, he’s a backup catcher. They have been a topic on Cubs message boards...

Cubs 2, Nats 1 (6/4/15)

OSS: David Ross bails out a shaky Hector Rondon in a poorly umpired game. Three up 1. David Ross ended the game on a pickoff throw to first base that probably should have been called safe. He threw out three baserunners on the day, though two of them could have been safe… Solid defense by Addison Russell and Anthony Rizzo late in the game helped keep it close. 2. Jake Arrieta was...

Cubs 2, Royals 1 (5/31/15)

(Now with correct score!) OSS: The wind was the true winner of this game. Three up: 1. The wind was certainly helping all the pitchers today, but members of the Cubs pen not named Travis Wood came through today. Wood aside, they pitched 5 1/3 innings of shutout ball, allowing just one hit, two walks, and striking out seven. Grimm had the best performance, striking out three out of...

Once beaten down by years of losing, Cubs' Castro is a star reborn

The Chicago Cubs’ two new veteran catchers, Miguel Montero and David Ross, weren’t impressed by shortstop Starlin Castro in spring training. Montero says Castro was, “a little bit too cool for school.” Ross says he actually was worried, wondering if Castro lacked fire. Neither catcher is worried now. Nor is any other Cubs player, coach or team executive. While the Cubs...

Series Preview: Pittsburgh Pirates (17-18) vs Chicago Cubs (19-15)

The Pirates are coming off a split with their cross-state ‘rivals’, and if you had asked me four days ago which of these NL Central-NL East four game sets was going to be a sweep, I would have bet heavily on the Pirates. But that’s baseball. A lot of their position players have been underperforming this year, including last year’s breakout player Josh Harrison, who has a...

A Mothers Day Smorgasbord of Cubs Silliness

At some point in tonight’s Cubs loss, I shut off the radio for the night and decided to call my grandmother in Hong Kong.  Since HK is on the other side of the International Date Line, they were already at Sunday and celebrating Mothers Day, so I got to chat with her for a bit before she decided to do her exercises and prepare for dim sum.  Grandma is cool.
