Cubs developing knack for making top prospects like Ian Happ feel needed

On the day last year Cubs catcher Willson Contreras arrived in the major leagues for good, teammate David Ross hugged him as if he had escaped captivity rather than Triple-A Iowa.

Chicago Cubs: Miguel Montero is a backup catcher’s delight

From Grandpa Rossy’s smile to Miguel Montero‘s heroics, the position of backup catcher has become a Chicago Cubs fan-favorite. The Chicago Cubs seem to have a habit of employing popular backup catchers.

Cubs 7, Red Sox 4: That’s More Like It

The Cubs came from behind and evened up their series with the hosts at Fenway. For a time Saturday afternoon, it looked like this one was going to be the same story as the previous two: give the other guy an early lead, fight back but fall just short. Instead, the Cubs posted a three-run seventh and came all the way back to defeat the Red Sox 7-4. The rally was nicely done. With the Cubs trailing 4-3, Miguel Montero led off the seventh inning with a home run, tying the game [VIDEO]. Your browser does not support HTML5 video. Up to that time the Cubs had led for just a half inning since they...

Cubs win with blasts, bloop, Red Sox oops

A resilient Cubs offense grinded their way back from an early three-run deficit on Saturday and made a winner of John Lackey in his return to Fenway Park. Moments after Miguel Montero hit a game-tying homer in the top of the seventh, Kyle Schwarber's RBI single up the middle put the Cubs ahead for the first time during that crucial three-run rally, and the bullpen held it over the final three innings for Lackey in a 7-4 win over Boston.

Cubs 7, Red Sox 4: Getting a handle on Steven Wright has been difficult

The thinking was obvious. Steven Wright had managed to get through six innings having allowed three runs. He was starting the seventh against the Cubs having thrown 97 pitches, with Miguel Montero — a hitter the knuckleballer had retired his previous to at-bats — leading off. With the Red Sox clinging to a one-run lead, […]

Chicago Cubs: Anthony Rizzo on fire in midst of 12-game hit streak

With the Chicago Cubs winners in four of their last five after snapping a four-game losing skid, a major reason has been due to the recent offensive production from first baseman Anthony Rizzo.
