Where's the Beefy?

The Cubs version of Fluffy will no longer exist as the Cubs have traded "catcher" Welington Castillo to the Seattle Mariners for relief pitcher Yoervis Medina.  Before I dig into the new guy, let's eulogize Beefy for a bit. While I'm all for letting prospects develop, Beefy got on my nerves from the very get go. For a "catcher" he didn't do that very well...literally. I'm sure my...

The Chicago Cubs Bullpen Sucks Right Now

Just how the Chicago White Sox were at the time, the worst team in baseball last week, right now the Chicago Cubs bullpen sucks. We all saw this weekend against the Milwaukee Brewers, but the quality of suck by Cubs relievers has been seen since very early in the season. The three-game series in Milwaukee simply magnified the Cubs’ biggest problem at the moment. No one can get...

Cubs 7, Brewers 6 (5/8/15)

OSS: Pile of home runs just barely shores up a shaky bullpen Three up 1. The aforementioned HR, by Fowler, Rizzo, Soler, and Castro. IIRC all of them that had an upper deck in their way landed there. 2. Jason Hammel was solid going seven innings and striking out eight, allowing two runs. He probably could have come out for the eighth inning, but I don’t have a beef with Maddon...

Cubs Starters Fueling Bullpen Failures

It is really easy to sit on the couch at home, watch the bullpen enter the game, squander the lead by allowing 2 or 3 runs to score, and blame the relief core for blowing the game.  Sometimes, that’s exactly how it works.  Sometimes, a starter comes out and shuts down an opposing team for 6.2 or 7 innings and the pen just blows it.  And there are times where the opposing team...

Cardinals 10, Cubs 9 (4/5/15)

OSS: I can’t even. Such a weird game all around. Three up 1. Kris Bryant had a great day at the plate, going 1-1 with 4 walks. Hard to believe this is the same guy who had a golden sombrero a few games ago, but that’s just how his game rolls. 2. Rizzo and Russell both hit solo shots, with Russell’s in the 9th cutting the cards lead to one. 3. Miguel Montero reached base three...

Ivy’s Roundup: Trouble Brewing

Ivy is feeling under the weather today so I’m doing this series recap for her while she battles the bug.  Honestly I didn’t actually watch most of this weekend’s games and only followed along off-and-on over a couple innings, but I do know what happened (and so, probably, do you, but I figure you’re reading anyway).  I’d almost rather turn this into a big spoiler-filled...

VIDEO: Pedro Strop Drills Milwaukee Brewers’ Hitter On The Head

In Sunday’s series finale between the Chicago Cubs and Milwaukee Brewers, right-handed pitcher Pedro Strop nailed Jean Segura on the head. Fortunately the Brewers’ right-handed hitter was able to put his head down quick enough to avoid direct contact to his face. Segura was leaning in, as he was attempting to put down a bunt with runners at first and third in a 3-3 game in the...

Corey Black Adds to List of Power Arms for Cubs Bullpen

Early in this major league season, the Cubs have had some issues with injuries in the bullpen.  Justin Grimm and Neil Ramirez are both on the shelf, which has caused overuse of the reliable Pedro Strop and Hector Rondon.  It’s led to increased use of players like Brian Schlitter.  And it’s brought Gonzalez Germen to the big leagues from Iowa, where he was supposed to serve...

Cardinals 3, Cubs 0 (4/5/15)

OSS: Cubs waste 3 lead-off doubles and lead-off single against Wainwright Three Up: 1. Phil Coke was clearly the best player on the team yesterday. He came in to a very dicey situation (2nd and 3rd, two outs), and stranded them both. The game could have very easily gotten away from the Cubs there, but Coke locked them out. Great first game by Phil. 2. Pedro Strop cleaned up a nice...
