Hail, Szczur! We who are about to cheer salute you!

There were Final Four games today, but I just couldn’t tear myself away from an otherwise meaningless Chicago Cubs spring training broadcast on WGN.  There’s something to be said for a relaxing game of baseball, especially one in which your favorite team wins.  While there were a few errors in this game early, the defense (and Edwin Jackson, too!) held up enough to twice prevent...

The Wind Up: Kris Bryant, Scott Boras, and the ‘Drama’ of MLB Rules

Breakout Youngsters: Taijuan Walker and Kris Bryant

With Spring Training winding down, clubs are starting to make their final decisions on who will and who will not be around on Opening Day. This is the time of year where some tough decisions must be made and some players will have to spend more time than they would prefer in the minor leagues.

Cubs Continue to Argue Against the Designated Hitter

Not to be outdone by Travis Wood the other day, Jake Arrieta wanted in on the home run party: Your browser does not support iframes. While we don’t expect the pitchers to go yard every other at-bat, this is still cool to see. Eventually the National League will likely get the designated hitter, but the Chicago Cubs staff will make it a tougher decision. This is fun…when they...

Cubs Release Struggling Southpaw Doubront

The Chicago Cubs released lefty pitcher Felix Doubront today per MLB.com’s Carrie Muskat. Doubront signed with the Cubs in January as the ball club intended to shore up some left-handed depth, although he wanted to be a starter rather than a reliever. Unfortunately he was out of options and couldn’t be sent down to Triple-A Iowa, which could have done him some good. Doubront...

Updated Outlook: Chicago Cubs-St. Louis Cardinals Rivalry

The rivalry between the Chicago Cubs and the St. Louis Cardinals has not been fierce in recent memory, as the Cardinals have controlled the last few years, leading the series 22-17 over the last two seasons. However, the Cubs will look to give the Cardinals a bit more of a challenge in the future, and that will start with MLB’s Opening Night on April 5th, when club aces Jon Lester...

Top 4 Reasons to Watch the Cubs in 2015

The Chicago Cubs are one of baseball’s most storied and oldest active sports franchises, having been established in 1870 as the Chicago White Stockings. From the 1876 through the 1908 season, the Cubs had won eight championships and was clearly baseball’s first true dynasty. Times have changed however, and the team, famously, hasn’t won a championship since that 1908 season...

Highlights and stuff from a televised Cubs spring training game

The game is over now, and the Chicago Cubs didn’t win, but it’s still spring training and there are always positives to be had. Except for a sure hit that he may have taken a less-than-ideal route on, Kris Bryant looked good in left field, backing up a play on an overthrow to third base and initiating a double play when Joey Giavotella inexplicably took off from second base before...

Cubs look to make big leap into contention

CHICAGO (AP) Standing in the shade on a beautiful afternoon in Arizona, Jon Lester embraced the question that hovers over the Chicago Cubs these days.

Chicago Cubs: Team on the Rise

When baseball fans think of futility, one of the first things that come to their mind is the Chicago Cubs franchise.
