The Houston Astros obtained right-hander Dan Straily in the off-season in the trade that brought Luis Valbuena to Houston and sent Dexter Fowler to the Chicago Cubs, but he hasn't yet suited up with the Astros...until now.  The club announced on Wednesday that Straily will be called up in time to pitch on Friday night at Fenway Park against the Boston Red Sox. Straily is filling...

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...

Cubs Pitching Prospect Promoted, Could Be Answer To Bad Bullpen In The Future

The Chicago Cubs awful bullpen was at it again Friday afternoon against the Kansas City Royals at Wrigley Field. Yet, help may be on the way sooner than later, as earlier on Friday the Cubs promoted pitcher C.J. Edwards to Triple-A Iowa. With the help of a pair of home runs by Jorge Soler and Addison Russell, the Cubs erased a 4-1 deficit on Friday against the Royals. Yet, the bullpen...

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...
