Today Joe Maddon gave Cubs fans some exciting news. This idea has been swirling around for a while now, but it’s started to get legs recently. I’ll be honest, I have my reservations. Nevertheless, Joe had this to say today: “Reports are good. He’s been doing everything — he’s been swinging the bat well, he’s
I know most of you are probably thinking this is a no-brainer. That the next thing on the Cubs’ radar is the playoffs. That the 18 remaining days, during which the Cubs play 17 times, can kind of get glossed over. I’m here to tell you that is the formula for some terrible playoff mojo.
New Cubs reliever Mike Montgomery beaned Cardinals outfielder Matt Holliday in the 10th inning of last night’s extra inning thrilling win and today we found out the seven time all-star has a broken thumb and will likely be out the rest of the regular season. Read more at MLB.com…
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.

Currently, Heyward and the Cubs are waiting on results from an MRI. As of
Miguel Montero has been placed on the 15-day disabled list with lower back tightness. Although I was hoping to get an early glimpse of top prospect Willson Contreras, it appears the Cubs will go with the more experienced option in Tim Federowicz. The 28 year old Federowicz has not appeared in a regular season game
Damn you Buster Olney. Damn you. I know, you can’t blame the messenger, but Buster, this one is devastating. I mean Kyle Schwarber is kind of the epitome of what makes this team so awesome, and to lose him is nothing short of heartbreaking. This kid has so much heart, and he’s so damn talented.
Scary, scary moment last night in Arizona. On a ball hit deep in the left field gap, Schwarber (playing left) and Fowler (playing center) collided as each pursued the baseball, which ended up falling, and caroming off the wall for what would turn into an inside-the-park home run for Juan Segura of the Diamondbacks. The
As you ought to know, Javier Baez and his injured thumb were placed on the 15 day DL to start the season. A lot of people (including me) would argue that Baez could have certainly been a part of the active roster, and is only being held on the DL under the guise of injury
