Indians 10, Cubs 1: This space intentionally left blank

And this space is, too. Blech. That’s about the nicest thing I can say about the Cubs’ 10-1 loss to the Indians Tuesday night. Here, have a look at the one Cubs offensive highlight, Ian Happ’s pinch-hit home run in the ninth inning: The rest of this game was just offensive. There’s not much...

Minor League Wrap: South Bend hammers Lugnuts

Minor League Wrap: South Bend hammers Lugnuts

South Bend won big. Iowa loses a controversial one. The “feud” between me and I-Cubs outfielder Lane Adams is over, thanks to one of you who asked him why he had me blocked on Twitter. Apparently it was the result of some sort of anti-spam program he was using (which raises a whole bunch of new questions) and he graciously unblocked me. So the whole thing was just a misunderstanding. Adams celebrated the “truce” with a triple and a run scored tonight in a 1 for 3 game. He also walked once.

2018 Cubs Heroes and Goats: Game 45

Cubs shelled by Indians in 10-1 loss to begin homestand. Well, that was special. Among the things I remember being told growing up was that if I didn’t have anything nice to say about someone, I probably shouldn’t say anything at all. So yeah, Tyler Chatwood pitched last night. The Cubs had a good number of base runners in scoring position. Wait, I remember what I can say. Justin Hancock had his longest outing as a Cub and was pretty effective. Also Ian Happ slammed a pinch hit home run. He’s having some really good success as a pinch hitter this year (5-for-8, two home runs) and is...

Chicago Cubs: Anthony Rizzo’s BABIP misfortunes

The 2018 season has been a struggle so far for Chicago Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo.

Chicago Cubs vs. Cleveland Indians preview, Tuesday 5/22, 6:05 CT

The Tribe returns to Wrigley for the first time since the 2016 World Series. And that's the only mention of the 2016 World Series you'll find in this preview. Notes for tonight: Tyler Chatwood, who enters tonight with a 3.14 ERA, has allowed four or fewer hits in six straight starts, the longest stretch by a Cubs pitcher since Carlos Zambrano went seven straight starts, August 30-October 2, 2010. No Cubs pitcher has had a streak longer than Zambrano since at least 1908. Chatwood has allowed just one homer in 43.0 innings, good for a rate of 0.21 HR/9 IP, which ranks second-best in the...

Chicago Cubs: Remember me? I’m Matt Clement

Everyone remembers Mark Prior, Kerry Wood, and Carlos Zambrano, but the most underrated pitcher during the Chicago Cubs’ 2003 season was Matt Clement and his goatee.

2018 MLB Draft Prep: The second-round choices

Freddie Freeman was a second-round pick in 2007. Can the Cubs get someone that good in that round this year? With the draft upcoming in early June, a few people seem to be over-inflating its importance, while others prefer ignoring it. This is going to be a look at some second round possibilities, and what can or should be expected from those selections. The Cubs get their standard second-round selection at pick 62, and have compensation picks at 77 as well as 78, for losing Wade Davis and Jake Arrieta via free agency. The “rosy scenario” types are claiming these choices, as well as the...
