Jorge Soler Sets Another Record

Through five games, Jorge Soler has been…..impressive. From homering, four pitches into his major league career, to upstaging even Javier Baez; “Soler-Power” has taken over the Cubs. Just when it seemed Cubs fans couldn’t have more to get excited about, Soler hit a double in his first at-bat at Wrigley. While, this may not seem overly important, it’s only the seventh time...

Chicago Cubs: Weekend of promise

Although the Chicago Cubs have seemingly been out of the race for a playoff spot for quite some time now, this weekend against their arch rivals the St. Louis Cardinals shows that the Cubs are very close to competing with the National League Central’s cream of the crop. If this weekend is a sign of things to come for the Cubs, then there is good reason to be very optimistic as...

Minor Accomplishments: Is Your Kris On My List?

September call-ups are almost upon us. Despite monster minor league numbers, it appears the Cubs are not going to add Kris Bryant to the roster. Bryant dominated in 2014, hitting an obscene .328/.438/.674 with 43 home runs, 114 runs, 102 RBIs and even 15 steals across two levels of the minors. I couldn't hit that in Bases Loaded on my Nintendo. While the Cubs did promote Javier...

How Far Have the Cubs Come?

So far, Soler . . . so good. It has been almost three years, nearly three hundred losses, and three drafts since the Cubs hired Theo Epstein to save the Cubs from their sins and rescue them from eternal damnation in their permanent subterranean dwelling in the Central Division’s fiery core. And if you think that metaphor is overblown in ridiculous, it was meant to match the expectations...

Watch: Jose Hits Two Home Runs In The Soler System Against Cardinals

(credit newslocker.com) Chicago Cubs fans have a lot to be excited about in the month of August.  At the beginning of the month all the hype belonged to Javier Baez, who hit a game winning home run in his major league debut and two nights later collected his first multi-homer game.  Here it is the end of the month and the Cubs introduced another prospect, Jose Soler, who in...

Javy Baez’s Struggles Are Not Swing Related

Cub fans have been conditioned to hope for the best and expect the worst. We cling to the smallest ounce of hope and panic at the hint of things going south. We were on top of the world at the news that Javier Baez was making his way to the major leagues. He didn’t disappoint with a 12th inning game winning home run against Colorado in his debut. Since then Baez has struck out 43...

Pay Attention Cardinals Fans – These Are The Cubs We’ll Be Battling

The Cubs aren’t very good. At 59-74, they reside at the bottom of the NL Central, 14 games out of first place. With a month left to go in 2014, the North Siders don’t have anything left to play for other than pride. And we know where that’s gotten them the past 106 years. But if you haven’t been paying attention, the Cubs have been sticking to their rebuilding plan fastidiously...

Soler the Savior, Not Baez

With little more than a month remaining in the regular season, the promotion of Jorge Soler to the MLB squad is likely the last top prospect to make the jump in 2014.

Cubs call up Jorge Soler. “Hey everybody, we’re all gonna get laid!”

It took until August, but now the Chicago Cubs are starting to put the steak behind the sizzle in their preseason marketing slogan. “It’s going to be the part of the century” is the mantra, and although it refers specifically to the 100th birthday of Wrigley Field, in general the idea encompasses Margaritaville at Clark and Addison. Jorge Soler has been called up, and he will...

A Soler Eclipse is Coming

Late last night news broke that Jorge Soler would be promoted to the Major Leagues by the Chicago Cubs, joining fellow “core four” member Javier Baez. This is sooner than most people expected, as many within the media circuit assumed that he would be brought up as soon as the Iowa Cubs playoff run ended at some point in September. With the poaching all of the I-Cubs best talent...

Javier Baez and His Swing

Javier Baez’s debut so far in the major leagues has been “hit or miss”. I mean that in a literal sense, Baez has either hit a home run or struck out in exactly half of his 74 major league at-bats. While he has shown some extreme power, his strikeout rate is troubling. Most of his power in generated from the wild hack of a swing he has. Of course, since he only 21, he still...

Cubs Rookie Javier Baez Absolutely Blasts A Ball To The Second Deck
