Chicago Cubs Lineup: Almora Batting Leadoff, Bryant Sits, Hendricks on Hill as Cubs Go for Sweep

Albert Almora returns to the leadoff spot today in the Cubs lineup. He’ll be followed by Kyle Schwarber, Ben Zobrist and Anthony Rizzo.

Cubs Heroes and Goats: Game 119

Cubs Heroes and Goats: Game 119

Cubs squander early lead; win late with walkooff wild pitch. That was certainly a weird night at the ballpark. First there were showers. Then the game opened as a slugfest with each team loading the bases and then having the next hitter hit a long fly ball. Not a huge difference except that Anthony Rizzo’s ball carried into the bleachers for a grand slam and the ball hit by Eugenio Suarez came up short. The Cubs put up four in the first while the Reds put only one on the board after a fantastic play by Kyle Schwarber. The game took an odd turn and a bit of a pitcher’s duel broke out and...

Chicago Cubs: Kyle Schwarber showing progression in the field

We’re not going to say that the Chicago Cubs’ Kyle Schwarber has “figured it out” in the field. He still will misplay a ball, and he’s far from perfect. But a couple of strong throws home have shown he might not be a lost cause like some think. I’m very aware what many of you […] Chicago Cubs: Kyle Schwarber showing progression in the field - Cubbies Crib - Cubbies Crib - A Chicago Cubs Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Be careful counting out Kyle Schwarber as man to make a difference for Cubs

Standing about 100 feet off the ground in a basket at the end of a ladder attached to Chicago Fire Department Truck No. 21, Cubs outfielder Kyle Schwarber smiled Wednesday as he dared to look down.
