Chicago Cubs: Some relievers to keep an eye on ahead of trade deadline

More than a few fans continue to clamor for a Manny Machado deadline deal, but it doesn’t seem likely. Let’s look at some more probable targets this summer. Don’t get me wrong, I’d be ecstatic if the Chicago Cubs acquired Manny Machado, but the price tag is extremely high, and he would be a rental player.

2018 Cubs Heroes and Goats: Game 71

2018 Cubs Heroes and Goats: Game 71

Cubs blank Dodgers for seventh series win out of eight. The Cubs survived another hard-fought series. Easy to feel like they could have taken three straight, but at the same time I bet the Dodgers left town feeling like they should have had at least two. That team came in wining 21 of 28 and so winning two out of three from them is nothing to sneeze at. The Cubs wake up this morning with the best winning percentage in the National League and a share of first place in the National League Central. Baseball reminds us regularly that there are no guarantees. That no pedigree guarantees you of...

Bulls draft rumors: Will GarPax cash in some equity to trade up this draft?

Bulls draft rumors: Will GarPax cash in some equity to trade up this draft?

cap space is a trade asset There’s been a bit of steam to the rumors that someone ahead of the Bulls is open to trading down. Draft Express mentioned the Bulls among teams interested in the Grizzlies’ #4 selection, among a half-dozen others. The Bulls have some assets they’d likely be willing to move to move up, whether it’s #22 this year, a future first (they own all of their own) or a young player under contract like Bobby Portis. I find it hard to believe Doncic wouldn’t be just taken by Memphis if he makes it to #4, but perhaps the Bulls are looking towards Mo Bamba. DX...

Bears summer mailbag: training camp thrills and playoff scenarios

Bears summer mailbag: training camp thrills and playoff scenarios

It’s (almost) summer. That means it’s time to responsibly speculate about Bears’ defensive issues, getting to the postseason, and more in this week’s mailbag. In the summer, one ideally spends time with loved ones and friends at the beach, reading books, and relaxing in the sun. With football out of the picture for a little while, now would be the time for folks to take care of themselves before the hair pulling and stress of Sunday football in the fall. But, this is not the platform to get away from the NFL. The summer break only means a small reprieve from the Bears and rest of...

On The Horizon: Cubs vs. Reds series preview

On The Horizon: Cubs vs. Reds series preview

In the past, Cubs bats have come alive at Great American Ballpark. The Cubs and Reds normally would have played quite a bit at this stage of the season, but after 71 regular-season games, these division rivals have met just six times. So I asked Wick Terrell, manager of our SB Nation Reds site Red Reporter, to update us on his team. Through Wednesday’s game against the Detroit Tigers, the Cincinnati Reds sit 7-4 over their previous 11 games, and for seemingly the first time in an epoch, they’ve got their starting pitching to thank. Sal Romano and Tyler Mahle have both strung together...
