Cubs News: Don’t look into the core’s underwhelming 2020 performance

The Cubs core struggled mightily in 2020. But that doesn’t mean what you think. There were high expectations for the 2020 Chicago Cubs, especially the core group of players. Kris Bryant, Anthony Rizzo, Javier Baez, Kyle Schwarber and Willson Contreras were all looking to get the Cubs back into the postseason after missing out for the first […] Cubs News: Don’t look into the core’s underwhelming 2020 performance - Cubbies Crib - Cubbies Crib - Chicago Cubs News and Fan Community

Cubs, Yankees could get together on a Willson Contreras trade

The Yankees are looking at catchers. Will the Cubs dangle Willson Contreras? Most of the focus has been centered around the Cubs players entering their final year of team control: Kris Bryant, Javier Baez, Anthony Rizzo and Kyle Schwarber. Meanwhile, two-time All-Star catcher Willson Contreras has seemingly fallen to the back burner in people’s minds […] Cubs, Yankees could get together on a Willson Contreras trade - Cubbies Crib - Cubbies Crib - Chicago Cubs News and Fan Community

Cubs News: Anthony Rizzo’s fourth Gold Glove is a special achievement

Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo won his fourth Gold Glove, tying Mark Grace.

Cubs: Who will stay, who will go when it comes to the core?

Will this be the offseason the Cubs finally pull the trigger on an impact trade? Already this offseason, we’ve seen all kinds of speculation surrounding the Cubs and trade possibilities.

Anthony Rizzo and Javier Báez earn Gold Gloves for the 2020 MLB season

Javier Báez turns a double play against the Pirates on his way to his first Gold Glove | Photo by Justin K. Aller/ The Cubs had a big night as Gold Gloves were announced on ESPN. It’s decision night in America, and no, I am not talking about the 2020 elections (let’s be honest, if you’re here you’re probably avoiding that coverage). I’m talking about the 2020 Rawlings Gold Glove Winners who were announced on ESPN a few minutes ago. Congratulations to Anthony Rizzo and Javier Báez, who both were recognized as the best defenders at their positions. Rawlings Gold Glove Award...

Cubs Rumors: A Kolten Wong-Javier Baez middle infield in 2021?

Let me dream about a Cubs duo of Javier Baez and Kolten Wong up the middle. Prior to the Cubs picking up Anthony Rizzo’s $16.5 million team option for 2021, the St. Louis Cardinals’ decision to go in another direction with infielder Kolten Wong caused some worry among Chicago Cubs fans. Thankfully, the front office […] Cubs Rumors: A Kolten Wong-Javier Baez middle infield in 2021? - Cubbies Crib - Cubbies Crib - Chicago Cubs News and Fan Community

The Cubs will pick up Anthony Rizzo’s 2021 option, per report

Photo by Quinn Harris/ So stop worrying. It’s been eminently clear since at least 2014 that Anthony Rizzo was the undisputed leader of the Cubs team that eventually won the World Series. (You do remember the Rizzo/Aroldis Chapman kerfuffle in Cincinnati in July 2014, right?) Both on and off the field Rizzo has exhibited these leadership skills. Beyond being one of the best players on the team, he’s become beloved by fans, and the charitable work he does for pediatric cancer is more than just typical of the sort, he does it because he’s a pediatric cancer survivor himself. He’s...

The Chicago Cubs and the World Series being over its time to ‘retool.’ But what do they do with the ‘Core Four’?

Cubs Rumors: Non-tenders raise questions over retaining Anthony Rizzo

Should recent non-tenders worry us regarding Anthony Rizzo and the Cubs? In a normal year, the Cubs picking up the 2021 option on Anthony Rizzo is a no-brainer, a formality, something not even worth talking about. But after seeing some big-name players, including Cardinals infielder Kolten Wong and Indians closer Brad Hand, get non-tendered since […] Cubs Rumors: Non-tenders raise questions over retaining Anthony Rizzo - Cubbies Crib - Cubbies Crib - Chicago Cubs News and Fan Community

Cubs Rumors: Are the Cubs about to ‘clean house’?

Face it. The Chicago Cubs would be in an ideal situation to sell-off the assets and start over. So should they too, or try to squeeze one more year out of it? The Chicago Cubs will be without Jose Quintana, Billy Hamilton, Jason Kipnis, Stephen Souza Jr., and–Anthony Rizzo? Rizzo’s okay, for now.
