Braves-Cubs Preview

Affectionately referred to as The Friendly Confines, Wrigley Field has been especially welcoming to the Chicago Cubs lately.

The Cubs (70-51) have won 11 of 13 at home, clubbing 19 homers and averaging 7.0 runs in the last seven. They went deep four times...

How many more starts can Cubs afford to give Jason Hammel?

Cubs pitcher Jason Hammel isn't giving manager Joe Maddon much reason to put faith in him down the stretch.Hammel hasn't pitched well and that continued in Tuesday's 10-8 loss to the Tigers. Hammel lasted just three innings, surrendering five runs on three homers, two in the first inning and one in the second. He might have lasted longer in the game and had a chance to straighten...

Game 117 Recap: Tigers 10 Cubs 8

Top Play (WPA): As much as I love Cubs baseball, this game was a chore. The Cubs were trailing almost immediately in this game, as Jason Hammel started and yet again didn’t have quality location on his pitches. The Tigers blasted three home runs off Hammel, as well as one double by Miguel Cabrera that was initially ruled a homer. Check out the crafty Tigers fan who snagged Miggy’s...

Tigers visit Cubs team on the rise

Much has changed for the Chicago Cubs and Detroit Tigers over the past year. That's certainly been the case since they last met two months ago.

Baseball needs the Cubs to reach October

The Chicago Cubs aren't quite the "lovable losers" we've been acquainted with over the past 10 years. No, no. These youngsters are now the "wunderkind winners".  The Cubs organization highlighted a demonstrative turnaround a season ago, despite a deceiving 73-89 record. Baseball's most keenly observed rebuild showed all signs pointed towards a fruitful future, but the plucking...

Schwarber homers in 2nd straight game, Cubs beat Giants 5-4

CHICAGO (AP) The Chicago Cubs wasted no time building a five-run lead, and once he sensed it slipping away, manager Joe Maddon went out to the mound with a quick hook.

Return of the Three Headed Catching Monster

Since being re-called to the Major Leagues after the All Star break, Kyle Schwarber has been on fire at the plate, giving the Chicago Cubs an interesting problem. How do you keep his bat in the lineup as much as possible? As the Cubs figured out not too long ago, one way to do so is on days when he is not catching, put him in left field. So far, he has played well enough for you...

MLB Quick Hits: Stop ... Hammel time!

The Cubs made a big splash when they signed Jon Lester to a six-year, $155 million contract over the winter, and while Lester has pitched better lately, fellow free-agent acquisition Jason Hammel has been better.
