Cubs: Rafael Ortega is a trade chip worth keeping an eye on

Looking at who the Chicago Cubs might move between now and the Aug. 2 trade deadline, we’re going to spend a good amount of time talking about Ian Happ, Willson Contreras and some members of the pitching staff. But not all trades have to include marquee names. For a rebuilding team like Chicago, there’s less […] Cubs: Rafael Ortega is a trade chip worth keeping an eye on - Cubbies Crib - Cubbies Crib - Chicago Cubs News, Rumors, and Fan Community

Cubs Rumors: Ian Happ ‘expected to hit the market’ this summer

As the best team in the National League, you might not think the Mets need to do a whole lot to improve – but according to the New York Post, the team could be looking to add a bat this summer.

Cubs must decide whether to trade or extend a breakout Ian Happ

Anyone who’s played MLB The Show in recent years, knows that almost every time Ian Happ steps to the plate, he’s referred to as ‘Pittsburgh area native, Ian Happ’. Clearly, the Cubs outfielder loves facing the Pirates – he’s got a .979 OPS against them in his career. This week, Happ went 5-for-16 with a home […] Cubs must decide whether to trade or extend a breakout Ian Happ - Cubbies Crib - Cubbies Crib - Chicago Cubs News, Rumors, and Fan Community

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports The Cubs look to end their three-game losing streak. There is a chance of rain in Pittsburgh tonight that could delay or interrupt this game, so here’s the local radar for you to keep track: Wednesday notes... PATTY SMARTS: Patrick Wisdom’s 461-foot home run Tuesday, his 13th of the season, was the longest of his career. It was his first since June 3 vs. the Cardinals, snapping a 52 at-ba homerless stretch, the longest of his career.

Photo by Nuccio DiNuzzo/ Another day, another attempt to end the losing streak. Thursday notes... IT’S A FACT: The Cubs have given up a total of 31 runs in consecutive games against the Padres, its most in consecutive games against the same opponent since July 2-3, 1999 against the Phillies (35). That 1999 team was bad — after starting 32-23 and being a game out of first place June 8, they went 35-72 the rest of the way.

Photo by Nuccio DiNuzzo/ The Cubs aim to end their seven-game losing streak. Tuesday notes... A BIT OF THEFT: Jonathan Villar stole a base Monday night, his fifth. That gave the Cubs 30 stolen bases in the team’s last 26 games since May 17, the most in the majors during that span. The Cubs have 40 steals in 60 games, a pace for 108. That would be the team’s most since 2006, when they had 121. HAPP-ENINGS: Ian Happ, last 12 games since May 31: .364/.442/.682 (16-for-44) with four doubles, two triples and two home runs.

Given the Chicago Cubs are currently an underwhelming 22-30 after 52 games, it is a foregone conclusion: Jed Hoyer will once again be fielding calls ahead of the deadline on almost everyone of value on this roster.
