NL Central playoff race: Cardinals hold their ground, Cubs begin to fade

At the beginning of last week, the St. Louis Cardinals were in the midst of a menacing road trip on the west coast, facing the streaking D-backs and the Giants, who are approaching 400 consecutive sell-out crowds at AT&T Park.

The E in question: Dodgers say no to no-no -- but Arrieta too?

The Los Angeles Dodgers don't believe they were no-hit Sunday night by Chicago Cubs pitcher Jake Arrieta. Maybe the Dodgers should know, after all they were recently no-hit at Houston, so they should know one when they see one. The history books, however, will forever show Arrieta recorded his first career no-hitter thanks to an error ruling on a hard one-hopper to second baseman...

Cubs 2, Dodgers 0 (8/30/15)

OSS: Kris Bryant provides all the fireworks in this 2-0 victory. Three Up 1. Kris Bryant ended his seemingly months-long road homerless streak with a 2-run jack in the first. It was the only runs of the game, but it was all that was needed. 2. Starlin Castro has been really good since his demotion. Though he had an error in this game, the new 2B had 3 hits from the 5 hole, including...

Cubs’ Addison Russell, Starlin Castro Turn Incredible Double Play (Video)

It’s unclear what the future of Starlin Castro looks like, but one thing is clear: Addison Russell will be the Chicago Cubs’ shortstop for a long time.

Russell and Castro combined in the third inning for one of the finest...

Cubs 8, Giants 5 (8/25/15)

Jake Arrieta had a perfecto through 3, and ended the day allowing no earned runs (1 unearned on his own error, though), striking out 8 over 6 innings and allowing a single walk.

Starlin Castro’s Developing New Role

Starlin Castro has been the Chicago Cubs‘ Opening Day shortstop for the last five seasons. However, over the last two weeks it appears that the torch has been passed to Addison Russell as Chicago’s new man up the middle.

Chicago Cubs: Castro’s days as a Cub far from over

No other player on the Chicago Cubs has been more maligned the last few years by the fans as well as the media than former shortstop and current utility infielder Starlin Castro. Much of the criticism has been well earned as he has had the worst statistical year of his career. Still only 25 years old, Castro’s career at the major league level is far from over. Yet, if he is...
