Miami Marlins deal Dan Haren to the Chicago Cubs

The Cubs acquired an end of the rotation starter to help them make a push for one of the wild cards when they acquired Dan Haren from the Miami Marlins. Haren will be a free agent at the end of the season and his salary is being paid by the Los Angeles Dodgers. In exchange, the Marlins will get minor leaguers Elliot Soto and Ivan Pineyro. Why the Cubs make this trade Dan Haren...

Cubs Have Anti-Climactic, But Productive, Deadline

Amid connections to the Indians for Carlos Carrasco (who has a 3.1 fWAR, 8th in the AL among starting pitchers), to the Padres for Tyson Ross (2.7 fWAR) and Craig Kimbrel (1.0 fWAR), among other or a late rumbling about being in talks with the Dodgers for Alex Wood (just acquired from the Braves and is only 24), the Cubs settled on two unspectacular moves that merely make them better...

Cubs get Dan Haren from Marlins, still chasing bigger-name starters

Three years ago, the Cubs thought they had a deal for Dan Haren. But a trade with the Angels involving Carlos Marmol cratered at the last minute and the veteran starter’s option was declined, leaving him free to sign with the Nationals as a free agent. Now, under a new administration at Wrigley Field, Haren is again getting an opportunity to pitch for the Cubs and has a chance...

Cubs Add Depth With Dan Haren; Not Done Yet?

According to Gordon Wittenmyer of the Chicago Sun Times, the Chicago Cubs have landed Miami Marlins righty Dan Haren in exchange for 2 minor leaguers. In 21 games this season, Haren has a 7-7 record, with a 3.42 ERA and 1.093 WHIP. Haren will likely be used as the 5th starter in a rotation that already features Jon Lester, Jake Arrieta, and Jason Hammel. In return, the Marlins will...

Chicago Cubs acquire Dan Haren from Miami Marlins

Put the Chicago Cubs on the board as they have made their first trade of the day, acquiring starting pitcher Dan Haren of the Miami Marlins. Haren offers the Cubs depth in a rotation I believe that lacks just that. It is not the impactful move that we are all anticipating from Theo Epstein. I believe that this is just a precursor to a big trade that Epstein is currently working on...

Cubs acquire Dan Haren

The Cubs have acquired Dan Haren from the Florida Marlins. No word yet on who was sent to Miami. Source: Haren to Cubs from Marlins. — Gordon Wittenmyer (@GDubCub) July 31, 2015 Haren has given up a ton of fly balls this season and his fastball is not very good. He hasn’t walked many batters and has been a little lucky. He’s basically a solid 4 or 5 starter at this point...

Cubs getting boost from Rizzo's power surge

Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo was fighting a slump and the Chicago Cubs were heading for the dumps.Suddenly both have turned things around. Rizzo saved the Cubs on Thursday, blasting his 18th home run of the season, a three-run shot in the eight innings to boost Chicago to a much-needed 5-2 win in Milwaukee. It came after he hit No. 17 the night before in Milwaukee to get this...

Preview: Brewers vs. Cubs

Now that Carlos Gomez has finally been traded, there's a good chance the Milwaukee Brewers' offensive woes could linger for at least one more night with Jason Hammel set to face them. Trying to record his first victory in almost eight weeks for the visiting Chicago Cubs, Hammel looks to remain undefeated against the reeling Brewers on Friday night. A day after a proposed deal that...

Recent skid hasn't stopped Cubs ticket office from playoff preparation

The Cubs might have lost their hold on a wild-card spot, but a franchise that hasn't tasted the postseason since 2008 isn't giving up just yet. In fact, the club's ticket office is pushing forward with postseason preparation. A Cubs season-ticket holder shared a letter he received from his Cubs season ticket holder representative. Here's a copy of the letter: From: Chicago Cubs Date...

Arrieta's performance topped his socks, but socks stole the show

Jake Arrieta said he he wanted the old-school stirrups he wore when he beat the White Sox. But Chicago Cubs clubhouse manager Tom “Otis” Hellmann brought the wrong ones, those fake stirrups players donned at one time for some reason, and so he wore them. Always blame the clubhouse manager. The socks might not have looked so great, but Arrieta was quite stylish on the mound, working...

Cubs 5, Brewers 2 (7/30/15)

OSS: Rizzo hit a home run into Lake Michigan, basically. Three up 1. Brewers starter Jimmy Nelson shut down the Cubs for the first seven innings on only two hits, but the Cubs jumped all over his relief, capped off by a Rizzo three-run blast off Will Smith. That has to have been one of the fastest line drive homers I’ve ever seen. I’m amazed we couldn’t see a bow shock form...

I’m OK

In the face of a rather disappointing stretch of Chicago Cubs baseball, I’ve been okay.  Yeah, the offense is inconsistent.  Yeah, the Cubs could probably use a better bullpen or fifth starter, especially with the Dallas Beeler debacles and the Neil Ramirez gesundheit injury.  But through it all, there have been positives that I would rather dwell on, and in this game, like...
