Cubs Rumors: Blue Jays eyeing both Kris Bryant and Kyle Hendricks

  While it certainly wouldn’t be out of place in this already annoying offseason, any trade involving Kris Bryant and Kyle Hendricks definitely would be signaling that the Cubs are no longer even farcically attempting to win in 2021. One could make the case that the Chicago Cubs were going another direction with homegrown masher […] Cubs Rumors: Blue Jays eyeing both Kris Bryant and Kyle Hendricks - Cubbies Crib - Cubbies Crib - Chicago Cubs News and Fan Community

Chicago Cubs: Four cost-effective starting pitchers to consider

In dire need of starting pitching, these arms could make sense for the Cubs. As currently constructed, the Chicago Cubs starting rotation is a bit messy. Kyle Hendricks will almost certainly be taking the mound for the team on Opening Day, but who is going to follow him? Tyler Chatwood, Jose Quintana and Jon Lester all played roles […] Chicago Cubs: Four cost-effective starting pitchers to consider - Cubbies Crib - Cubbies Crib - Chicago Cubs News and Fan Community

Blue Jays rumors: Is Toronto ready to deal for Kris Bryant and Kyle Hendricks?

In last week’s edition of the “MLB Hot Stove,” the Toronto Blue Jays quickly became one of the main players. Toronto added two of the bigger-name free agents after signing George Springer and Kirby Yates. Still, this roster has some obvious needs at starting pitcher and third base. Enter the Chicago Cubs as we examine the […] Blue Jays rumors: Is Toronto ready to deal for Kris Bryant and Kyle Hendricks? - Call to the Pen - Call to the Pen - A Major League Baseball Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Cubs News: Kyle Hendricks will undoubtedly start on Opening Day

This still-ongoing offseason has been a nightmare. There has been very little activity – well, essentially zero activity – leading us to believe the 2021 season will be a wash. It all started with the departure of Theo Epstein and has seen the departure of key members of the 2016 World Series team. Now, the […] Cubs News: Kyle Hendricks will undoubtedly start on Opening Day - Cubbies Crib - Cubbies Crib - Chicago Cubs News and Fan Community

Cubs likely to scout Julio Teheran, Anibal Sanchez Tuesday in Miami

Over the weekend, the Chicago Cubs signed former first-rounder Shelby Miller to a non-guaranteed deal in hopes of shoring up the starting rotation. Miller is an interesting signing, with eight MLB seasons under his belt along with a 4.11 ERA. Hopefully he will provide some upside to a rotation who’s lost everyone besides Kyle Hendricks and […] Cubs likely to scout Julio Teheran, Anibal Sanchez Tuesday in Miami - Cubbies Crib - Cubbies Crib - Chicago Cubs News and Fan Community

Cubs betting command on the mound translates to success

Can a rotation built around inducing soft contact lead the Cubs to October? Don’t expect to see much in the terms of overpowering velocity from the Chicago Cubs rotation this season. That is, at least not from its three current members: Kyle Hendricks, Zach Davies and Alec Mills. All three rank among the softest-throwing starters […] Cubs betting command on the mound translates to success - Cubbies Crib - Cubbies Crib - Chicago Cubs News and Fan Community

12 Days of Cubsmas: Nine strikeouts in a Kyle Hendricks Opening Day start

Photo by Justin Casterline/ The Professor started the Cubs season with a gem Opening Day might be better than Christmas for me. There is so much hope and possibility. The long wait of the offseason is finally over. The bunting goes up all over Wrigleyville (yes, houses also put up bunting sometimes, because Wrigleyville). It is a beautiful thing to walk up to the old ballpark at the corner of Clark and Addison, hearing the strains of the organ playing and wondering what witticism Murphy’s Bleachers will put on their board for that first game. Even in 2020, maybe...

Yankees Potential Trade Target: Kyle Hendricks

Yankees Potential Trade Target: Kyle Hendricks

David Banks-USA TODAY Sports The Cubs are signaling a fire sale, so it’s time to be buying It’s important to be able to learn from your own mistakes, but it’s perhaps even more important to take advantage of other people’s mistakes. The Ricketts family, for example, is making a mistake with the Chicago Cubs, signaling that they’re ready to blow up a competitive baseball team. In the last month, the club has non-tendered Kyle Schwarber, dealt ace Yu Darvish, and there are rumors abound that they also want to ship out Kris Bryant and Javier Báez. If the Cubs...

Chicago Cubs: Kyle Hendricks has broken the Cubs’ pitching philosophy

The Cubs are betting success can be found in a soft-tossing starting rotation. Cubs ace Kyle Hendricks is unconventional in style. His fastball doesn’t touch 90 MPH, and he gets by with confusing hitters and inducing weak contact with a devastating changeup and the occasional curveball. Having a guy like this in your rotation can […] Chicago Cubs: Kyle Hendricks has broken the Cubs’ pitching philosophy - Cubbies Crib - Cubbies Crib - Chicago Cubs News and Fan Community
