Had to throw this one to our guy Kyle. Two great starts in a row, really looks like he’s finding his stride. Today’s effort came out to be 8 innings pitched, 2 runs on 3 hits with only 1 walk. The two runs came on a solo homer and a sac fly. But what won
After Jon Lester’s complete game, four hit, one run masterpiece, its big bad Kyle Hendricks’ turn to show us what he’s got. Kyle stepped up in a big way, and perhaps set the bar, in his last start. Against the Phillies Hendricks went the distance, allowed just five hits and one run — all the
June is upon us and that means the training wheels are officially off for the 2016 season. After a couple months of rapid fire baseball, and wide-eyed excitement with the new season, its summertime.

I awoke this morning to find a Dave Schoenfield article alleging that there is a case to be made for Jake Arrieta having Hall of Fame potential. The way that sentence reads may already point to my skepticism; and though I think the world of the Cubs’ ace, let me explain why this completely and
Well it looks like the Cubbies are back, for the moment at least. After stinking it up from Milwaukee to San Fran, and then losing on a walk-off homer last night, the boys in blue came back strong with an 12 run output which was backed up by a phenomenal performance form Jason Hammel. Hammel
After missing a couple games with an abdominal contusion, Jason Heyward is back in the lineup for the Chicago Cubs tonight against the St. Louis Cardinals. Heyward will bat 2nd and play right field. Hopefully, our $184 million man can deliver some offensive production as the Cubs look to avoid dropping their 4th consecutive game.
Chicago Tribune — Taking pitches from Kerry Wood at Wrigley Field isn’t exactly an everyday occurrence. That’s why on Wednesday, fans have the chance to do just that at the second annual Kerry Wood & Friends Battle of the Bats Charity Home Run Derby. The event, a joint effort by the Wood Family Foundation and
