Do the Cubs really need to go spend on a superstar shortstop?

We still have six weeks left in the regular season and, already, we’re hearing offseason rumblings connecting the Cubs to major free agents. Ken Rosenthal, senior baseball writer for The Athletic, dropped this bombshell on his Athletic Baseball Podcast earlier this week. “They’ve got to get – and I believe they will get – one of […] Do the Cubs really need to go spend on a superstar shortstop? - Cubbies Crib - Cubbies Crib - Chicago Cubs News, Rumors, and Fan Community

Cubs: Erich Uelmen’s lack of usage has been puzzling

In mid-July, the Chicago Cubs selected the contract of a minor leaguer most people had never heard of – former fourth-round pick Erich Uelmen. Seeing a struggling team look to the minors as the season stretches on isn’t exactly surprising, but the fact the right-hander is still around nearly a month later is certainly interesting, especially […] Cubs: Erich Uelmen’s lack of usage has been puzzling - Cubbies Crib - Cubbies Crib - Chicago Cubs News, Rumors, and Fan Community

Drew Smyly could be a solid fit for the 2023 Cubs

Drew Smyly turned in a solid outing against the Reds on Thursday night during the Field of Dreams Game. His five-scoreless inning, nine-strikeout performance lowered his season ERA to 3.69, while also sporting a 1.3 WHIP, 4.27 FIP, 7.8 K/8 and 2.2 BB/9 across 70 2/3 innings.

Both in their second big […] Cubs: Homegrown arms are finally rounding into form - Cubbies Crib - Cubbies Crib - Chicago Cubs News, Rumors, and Fan Community
