Chicago Cubs vs. San Diego Padres preview, Tuesday 9/10, 9:10 CT

Photo by Denis Poroy/ The Cubs go for two in a row over the Padres. With the promotion of Nico Hoerner, the Cubs now have 11 (!) first-round picks on the 40-man (and active) roster. In addition to Hoerner: Cole Hamels, Danny Hultzen, Javier Baez, Kris Bryant, Addison Russell, Albert Almora Jr., Nicholas Castellanos, Ian Happ, Jason Heyward and Kyle Schwarber.

2019 Cubs Heroes and Goats: Game 143

Orlando Ramirez-USA TODAY Sports Cubs win 10-2 to snap a three-game skid One of the downsides to the resurgent Reds is, without a doubt, that the National League Central came into the 2019 season without a truly undermanned team. Don’t get me wrong, the Pirates are actually a worse team now than the Padres who the Cubs faced last night.

It is stunning even at this late date, how fluid the National League...

Chicago Cubs: Why are we not talking more about David Bote?

Since the All-Star Break, David Bote has been one of the best offensive performers on a Chicago Cubs team that’s lacked offensive consistency.

Sure, they entered this week’s series against the San Diego Padres in possession of the second Wild Card […] Chicago Cubs: Why are we not talking more about David Bote? - Cubbies Crib - Cubbies Crib - A Chicago Cubs Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Cubs 10, Padres 2: Welcome to the Show, Nico Hoerner!

Orlando Ramirez-USA TODAY Sports Now THAT was a debut. Late in the broadcast of the Cubs’ 10-2 win over the Padres Monday night, Len and JD were musing about the spectacular debut of shortstop Nico Hoerner, and one of them (can’t remember who) said, “Someday we’ll just say ‘Nico’ about him, just a first name, and everyone will know who we’re talking about, like ‘Javy’.” Someday just might be today. Nico had one of the best debuts in recent major-league history, with two singles, a triple, two runs scored, four RBI and some nice plays in the field. And then there’s...

This had made many people very angry and has been widely regarded as a bad move.” I’m trying hard to keep my perspective and remain positive. It wasn’t so long ago that possible post-season berths were a pipe dream. And yeah, this core has/had such promise yadda yadda but we all knew it...
