However, you have to appreciate the person who handles the Twitter feed for the Chicago Cubs. There was this post on Saturday at around 6:30 p.m. Central following Cole Hamels no-hitter at Wrigley Field. Yes, of all the history that was made...

Cubs Unimpressed By Cole Hamels No-Hitter

The Chicago Cubs hadn’t been no-hit since Hall of Famer stymied them on September 9, 1965. So, when soon-to-be-former-Philadelphia Phillies ace Cole Hamels threw a hitless gem against the team on Saturday, the baseball world stood up and took notice. Suffice it to say, the “Loveable Losers” were not as impressed. Dexter Fowler walks twice in loss to #Phillies. Recap: http...

Chicago Cubs: Dexter Fowler needs to turn it around

Chicago Cubs centerfield, Dexter Fowler, is off to the worst start to a season in his eight-year career. Fowler was traded to Chicago from Houston for third baseman Luis Valbuena and pitcher Dan Straily this past offseason. The Chicago Cubs had a glaring hole at the leadoff spot last season, and Dexter Fowler was brought in to fix that. So far this year he has not fixed it liked...

Fowler a catalyst for Cubs offense

  It's cliche to say as Dexter Fowler goes, so do the Cubs. However, when looking at the numbers, that may be the case. As CSN Chicago noted,"when Dexter Fowler gets on base, the Cubs are 27-12. "That's a .692 winning percentage. That also means Fowler has scored in 27 of the Cubs' 43 wins during the 2015 season." While those are great numbers, they're only relevant if Fowler is...

Cubs 6, Reds 3 (6/11/15)

OSS: Three run homers FTW. Three up 1. Miguel Montero is busting out of his slump with back to back three run homer games. He also added a walk and a single. Maybe this game is merging with the blowout in Detroit in my head, but I was surprised to see that the Cubs only scored six. 2. Speaking of players that have been a little slump-y, Dexter Fowler also had a multi-hit game, including...

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.

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...
