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...

Series Preview: Brewers (73-63) at Cubs (61-76)

The Brewers started the season scorchingly hot and had a 20-8 record on May 1. Since then they’ve gone 53-55, are currently riding a five game losing streak, and are now tied with the (ugh) Cardinals for the division lead. I think the Pirates end up taking the division by season’s end but that big lead the Brewers built early in the year has given them a big cushion. (The new...

Cubs Rumors: Chicago can add payroll in coming years

The Chicago Cubs have already called up a couple of their future pieces in Javier Baez and Jorge Soler. On the way, they have Kris Bryant, Albert Almora, Addison Russell, and more intriguing young talent that is not far from reaching the majors. However, their surplus of position players does not make up for the lack of major league and minor league talent.#168231267 / gettyimages...

Chicago Cubs: Jorge Soler making an impression

Jorge Soler In his first career at-bat in the major leagues, Jorge Soler took one of the better pitchers in the National league deep for a solo home run to straight away center field. Since then, Soler has continued to show why the Chicago Cubs gave him a $30 million deal before he even put on a Cubs uniform. Soler is hitting .533 with three home runs and seven RBIs in just four...

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...

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues / NL-Only Leagues ANALYSIS: With the Cubs clearly in rebuilding mode, they have been trotting out many of their minor leaguers that need to get a cup of coffee in The Big Show, and Tsuyoshi Wada has been one of the beneficiaries of that.

Cubs 5, Cardinals 1

The Cubs took the opener of the doubleheader behind the pitching of Felix Doubront and some more long ball from the offense.

But overall, the Cubs struck out 13 times. Doubront...

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...

Young Cubs Impress

When Anthony Rizzo and his 30 homers were forced to ride the bench, many feared that the Cubs offense would begin to stall. Instead, the Cubs have been ripping the ball, thanks to call-ups such as Chris Valaika and Jorge Soler. The youth movement has impressed many, and given Cubs fans renewed hope in the Epstein plan. Cubs fans have long heard about Jorge Soler’s power. However...

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...

Down the Stretch

Last night the Chicago Cubs put on a hitting clinic and showed off some massive power, especially by Jorge Soler who hit two mammoth home runs. Even though the record does not necessarily reflect how well they have played, the Cubs have been playing very well as of late. Currently, the Cubs have a record of 60-74, they are 13 games back of the division lead and 11.5 games back of...

Soler Powered Fantasy Baseball

Jorge Soler arrived in the majors earlier this week like a gift from the fantasy baseball gods. Last night he went 3-for-3 with two more home runs and three more runs batted in. The 22-year-old from Cuba has come to the plate 12 times and already has seven hits, three homers, six RBIs, and a walk. Those are video game numbers and could carry a fantasy team through September. It hasn...

While Jorge Soler has a blast with Cubs, Kris Bryant waits his turn

Jorge Soler: 3-for-3 and two home runs. Javy Baez: a go-ahead double in the eighth inning. Arismendy Alcantara: a homer in the ninth to finish off a 7-2 victory. ...
