Remember when Rod Beck pitched in 81 Cubs games in one year?

When Cubs fans look back on the 1998 season, there are plenty of moments that stand out in our memories, even today. Rookie Kerry Wood tying the all-time single-game mark, punching out 20 Houston Astros hitters in early May at Wrigley Field. Sammy Sosa’s summer of slugging, hitting 66 home runs in a head-to-head battle […] Remember when Rod Beck pitched in 81 Cubs games in one year? - Cubbies Crib - Cubbies Crib - Chicago Cubs News, Rumors, and Fan Community

The Marcus Stroman signing shocked me, personally. The offseason began and names came off the board left and right, far quicker than anticipated, and it sure looked like the Cubs were going to be left scrounging for scraps yet again. Instead, Jed Hoyer inked Stroman to a two-year, $50 million pact that includes a player option […] Marcus Stroman projected to be the most valuable Cubs player in 2022 - Cubbies Crib - Cubbies Crib - Chicago Cubs News, Rumors, and Fan Community

1989 Cubs Historical Heroes and Goats: Part 16

Photo by Focus on Sport/ The Cubs look to bounce back from a tough weekend Last week we saw the second half of the season begin after four Cubs had gone to the All-Star game. They had finished the first half on fire, winning five of six to close out the half and they blasted the Padres coming out of the break to extend the streak. But then they lost three straight to close out the week. This week, the team moves on to Los Angeles for three more games to close out their trip to start the half. In a tough scheduling quirk, they play Wednesday in L.A. and then Thursday in...

Cubs historical sleuthing: Gary Carter edition

Photo by Focus on Sport/ This future Hall of Famer was involved in a close play at the plate at Wrigley. But when? tells us the following about this photo (fixed a typo): Gary Carter #8 of the Montreal Expos in action against the Chicago Cubs during a Major League Baseball game at Wrigley Field circa 1982 in Chicago, Illinois. Carter played for the Expos from 1974-84 and 1992. One thing I can tell you for certain, right away, is that it’s not 1982. That’s Ivan De Jesus sliding in at the plate, and he was traded away after 1981 in the Ryne Sandberg deal. The Expos...
