Cubs 6, Mets 5 (5/14/15)

OSS: Cubs come from behind to put a smile on Ron Santo’s face. Three up 1. Dexter Fowler got the scoring started with a home run in the fourth inning, with the Cubs down 4-0, and came around to score the go ahead run in the eighth on a passed ball by Mets catcher Anthony Recker. That almost seems too innocuous, probably better to qualify it as a hilariously misplayed ball by Recker...

Cubs fan gives rude treatment to cap from another team, tosses it on field

This wasn't the best way to mark the reopening of the bleachers at Wrigley Field. During Monday's Cubs-Mets game, a fan's cap -- apparently representing the White Sox -- fell onto the warning track and was retrieved by Cubs center fielder Dexter Fowler. His toss into the stands flew over the head of the cap's owner. But instead of simply handing it back, a young woman wearing a Jon...

Monday night’s game between the New York Mets and Wrigley Field brought us the unveiling of the new bleachers in left field.

Brewers 6, Cubs 1 (5/2/15)

OSS: Cubs strike out 18 times on the way to a loss Three up: 1. Aside from a Braun HR in the first (and another near-HR his next time up), I thought Arrieta looked pretty good in this game. Just all the bad luck you can think of in the second, with a bunch of bloops and meh contact finding holes for hits. In his not-defense though, the Brewers were running wild on him as he had no...

New Cubs Center fielder!?

With Dexter Fowler going down with an injury in the Wednesday night contest against Pittsburgh, the Cubs put youngster Kris Bryant in center field. Some though that was just a needed basis during that game, however when manager Joe Maddon sent out his lineup for today…. Do we have a new Cubs center fielder? Sure, he won’t stay there and certainly won’t be in once Dexter Fowler...

Then, he bunted for a single in the 9th, getting the tying run to the plate. He has been an excellent addition to the team this year. 2. Edwin Jackson kept the Cubs in this game with 2 innings...

Dexter Fowler is the man. Cubs 6, Rockies 5 (4/12/2015)

OSS: Dexter Fowler returns to Coors and makes a deposit. Three Up 1. Dexter Fowler is officially a Cub now. With 2 out, 1 on, down 1, 0-2 count, Fowler laced a shot into the second level on the right field. Fowler finished the game 2-5 with the dinger, and finished the series with 12 total bases and 2 walks. Defensively, I can start to see some warts, but in Coors Field it’s really...
