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...

Pedro Strop can celebrate all he wants

The Chicago Cubs defeated their crosstown rivals Friday afternoon, and it seemed one of the items of conversation involved this celebration by Pedro Strop: I think former Cubs legend John Baker said it best in his blog, but usually complaints about Pedro Strop (when not directed by misinformation about his “ineptitude” as a high-leverage reliever) involve his tilted cap or...

Chicago Cubs: Revisiting the Jake Arrieta, Pedro Strop trade

Prior to the trade deadline two years ago, the Cubs dealt Scott Feldman and Steve Clevenger to the Orioles for Pedro Strop and Jake Arrieta, which has proved to be a great Theo Epstein move. Understatement? Maybe. The Cubs drafted Scott Clevenger in the 2006 MLB Draft. Leading up to the deal, Clevenger was a steady presence in the Chicago Cubs’ farm system. The main part of...

Revisiting the worst trade of the Dan Duquette era in Baltimore

On July 2, 2013, the Baltimore Orioles traded starting pitcher Jake Arrieta and reliever Pedro Strop to the Chicago Cubs for Scott Feldman and Steve Clevenger. If you are a fan of the Baltimore Orioles, that sentence may conjure up several feelings. As I typed it, I took a few seconds to put my head down, curl up into a ball, and gently rock myself as I attempt to come to grips with...

Cub Fans, Listen to the Wisdom of Bob Marley

Over the past 12 hours I have seen far more panic and angst on FaceBook and Twitter than is necessary. Yea, the Chicago Cubs lost a game against the St. Louis Cardinals late. Down to their final strike, everyone assumed the game was over and the Cubs won the game, and the series. But then, baseball happened. On a two strike pitch, Jhonny Peralta hit a go ahead (and game winning...

Closer Report, Week 13: Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Bullpen

I am equating this one solely on one thing for the Cubbies... and that term is?  Pseudo-intellectual.  Joe Maddon does everything different and it's gotta be the glasses.  He makes everyone want, need or have to be involved in his bullpen.  Basically, he is the united colors of Benetton of managers.  His hydra approach at the bullpen is not only bothersome or troubling for...
