Cubs place Ross on disabled list

  The Cubs have placed catcher David Ross on the seven-day disabled list with a mild concussion, according to CSN Chicago. "I was a little off a couple days ago. I'm probably always a little off. It's hard to tell what's norm for me," Ross joked to CSN Chicago. "I had a three-day headache that was going on and some nausea and some small symptoms that were going on the day after...

Cubs 7, Marlins 2 (7/4/15)

OSS: A 6-RBI day by Kris Bryant cruises the Cubs to an easy win Three up 1. Kris Bryant hit a two-run shot in the first inning that probably still hasn’t landed. I think the people most upset by the bleacher expansion were probably the ballhawks. 2. Bryant then one-upped himself with a grand slam in the third inning, chasing Cosart and putting the game out of reach. 3. As much...

Happy Independence Day

Today, the day of our nation’s birth, I went with family to Mission San Juan Bautista here in California to learn about history and stuff.  Since we’re talking about history, this is also the day (almost to the hour now) last year when the Chicago Cubs made a hell of a trade to get Addison Russell, super prospect Billy McKinney.  Although they sent him over then for those two...

Should Addison Russell replace Starlin Castro at shortstop?

It’s been a looming question ever since the Chicago Cubs called up top infield prospect Addison Russell from the minors near the end of April: should Russell replace Starlin Castro at shortstop? There has been some speculation that this will happen eventually based on Castro’s defensive struggles at shortstop. ESPN Staff Writer Jesse Rogers states “We don’t need to pour...

Marlins 2, Cubs 1 (7/3/15)

OSS: Cubs offense continues to struggle, two runs feels like two hundred. Three up 1. Jason Hammel had a solid start, striking out five in seven innings and allowing four hits. Unfortunately two of those were solo home runs, but overall this was another solid outing that the  non-struggling version of this offense should have taken and run with. 2. Miguel Montero and Kris Bryant...

Pirates lose game to Indians, Clayton Richard to Cubs, Jameson Taillon to hernia

If I had time to write a preview for yesterday’s game, I would have said that I was a bit concerned about this Pirates/Indians series as the Indians have a pitching staff that strikes hitters out like crazy and the Pirates have an offense that tends to stall out against high-strikeout pitchers by striking out like crazy. The Pirates had some trouble with Trevor Bauer yesterday...

Cubs Disappoint Fans With Richard Deal, Waiting For a Better Deal That May Not Come

Yesterday the Chicago Cubs made their first move of the season as they bought the contract of Clayton Richard from the Pittsburgh Pirates, he will start tonight in place of Donn Roach. This is a move that did not wow many fans, probably not any as Richard is not exactly a good pitcher; but he might be better than Roach who was demoted to make room for him. The 31 year old pitcher...

Clayton Richard to make Chicago Cubs debut day after being traded

It’s been a crazy 24 hours for Clayton Richard. On Friday, he was a member of the Pittsburgh Pirates Triple-A Indianapolis team. On Saturday, he’ll be making his first major league start since 2013, except it’ll be with the Chicago Cubs, not the Pirates. The Cubs traded for the 31-year-old Richard on Friday, sending the Pirates cash considerations. Richard is set to start Saturday’s...

The dollars and sens of a Jon Niese-Starlin Castro trade

With teams having hundreds of assets (mostly players) and dynamic varying needs it is pretty challenging to say this team should trade this player, or these players, to that team for such and such a player. Yet still we who write about baseball persist in thinking up trades and reasons for why they could work for both sides. It is evident to all that the Mets and Cubs match up well...

Journeyman Jason Hammel has found a home with the Chicago Cubs

After pitching for five different teams over nine seasons, it appeared as though Jason Hammel was never going to find a home in the big leagues. However, that all changed when the Chicago Cubs signed Hammel to a two-year deal worth $20 million in Dec. of 2014. It looked as though Hammel had already made Chicago his home in 2014, when he went 8-5 with a 2.98 earned run average in...

Chicago Cubs pitching well despite poor defense

The Chicago Cubs have the fifth best team earned run average (3.39) in the Major Leagues this season. They also have the fifth worst team fielding percentage (.981) in the Major Leagues this season. The Cubs’ defense has more than it’s fair share of excuses. Rookie, Addison Russell, is only 21-years old, and still transition to second base after playing shortstop in the minors...

Epstein on Trade Deadline: 'You have to be creative, you have to be patient'

A lot can change between now and July 31, but it looks like the Cubs will be buyers at the Trade Deadline for the first time in Theo Epstein's tenure in Chicago. "You have to be creative, you have to be patient, you have to be understanding and you have to recognize that the trade deadline is not a panacea," Epstein said to CSN Chicago.

WATCH: Soldier Surprises Son at Minor League Baseball Game

Videos of military homecomings are the best. On Friday night, the Tennessee Smokies—a Double-A affiliate of the Chicago Cubs—engineered a wonderful, touching moment for a soldier and his son. The Smokies brought the son of Sgt. Adam Dowell onto the field for a between-inning game and placed a blindfold on the young boy. When he turned around, the little Dowell in an Army t...

Miami Marlins rely on solo homers to beat the Chicago Cubs 2-1

On an afternoon in which both teams were relatively quiet on offense, the Miami Marlins relied on the long ball en route to a 2-1 victory over the Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field on Friday. Marlins left fielder Christian Yelich put up the first run of the ball game in the top of the first inning with a solo home run to center field. Yelich has been hot at the plate as of late for the...
