Cubs Highlights and Stuff

Share Button

I’d like to point out a few things about this Chicago Cubs season (which I do every now and then), but first, I’m sure you’ll want to see some highlights from Saturday’s comeback win: Your browser does not support iframes. OH MY GAWSH watch out Kyle Schwarber that’s a brick Continue reading Cubs Highlights and Stuff

Goodbye, Edwin Jackson

As you may recall from before the All-Star Break, I took a look at the impending roster moves as guys come back from the disabled list and, in particular, when Rafael Soriano‘s time would come to be called up per the de facto terms of his midseason deal.  Well, Soriano is Continue reading Goodbye, Edwin Jackson

The Cubs Roster Crunch is Coming (Probably After the Break)

First off, congratulations to Chicago Cubs players Anthony Rizzo and Kris Bryant for being selected as All-Star reserves this year. The Rizzo/Bryant bro show is on the go to Ohio! @Cubs (I'm using your GIF, thanks) pic.twitter.com/0NJgf0IaLH — Randall J. Sanders (@RandallJSanders) July 6, 2015 Not so lucky for pitchers, though I Continue reading The Cubs Roster Crunch is Coming (Probably After the Break)

Cubs Disappoint Fans With Richard Deal, Waiting For a Better Deal That May Not Come

Share Button

Yesterday the Chicago Cubs made their first move of the season as they bought the contract of Clayton Richard from the Pittsburgh Pirates, he will start tonight in place of Donn Roach. This is a move that did not wow many fans, probably not any as Richard is not exactly Continue reading Cubs Disappoint Fans With Richard Deal, Waiting For a Better Deal That May Not Come

Ivy’s Roundup: Can’t Keep a Good Cub Down

Ivy will do the recap for the Eastern road trip soon enough, but since this was a shortened series, I’ll take care of it for now since I have the time.  Before we round up the series, though, two cool stories that I thought every fan would appreciate: 1. Bartolo Continue reading Ivy’s Roundup: Can’t Keep a Good Cub Down

Wada Being Called Up Soon?

Share Button

While nothing is confirmed at all, according to Tommy Birch (Iowa Cubs beat writer) Tsuyoshi Wada is a healthy scratch for the I-Cubs. There is no words as to why he was scratched, but connecting the dots, he might get called up to the Chicago Cubs active roster. In order Continue reading Wada Being Called Up Soon?

Ivy’s Roundup: Don’t Panic

Yeah, so Ivy is still doing college stuff, which is important, and because we’re always looking at a macro view, even though we’re all rabid Chicago Cubs fans, we still have lives that require much more attention than our maybe-contending favorite team, who apparently have issues.  Anyway, since Ivy is Continue reading Ivy’s Roundup: Don’t Panic

Yet Another Sales Pitch

Share Button

The Chicago Cubs have an obvious problem, one that if not fixed soon will be a major hurdle in their competing for the division title and maybe even one of the two Wild Card spots. That flaw is their starting rotation. While the top three pitchers are pitching well, the Continue reading Yet Another Sales Pitch

Cubs Starters Fueling Bullpen Failures

Share Button

It is really easy to sit on the couch at home, watch the bullpen enter the game, squander the lead by allowing 2 or 3 runs to score, and blame the relief core for blowing the game.  Sometimes, that’s exactly how it works.  Sometimes, a starter comes out and shuts Continue reading Cubs Starters Fueling Bullpen Failures

Ivy’s Roundup: Trouble Brewing

Share Button

Ivy is feeling under the weather today so I’m doing this series recap for her while she battles the bug.  Honestly I didn’t actually watch most of this weekend’s games and only followed along off-and-on over a couple innings, but I do know what happened (and so, probably, do you, Continue reading Ivy’s Roundup: Trouble Brewing
