With the news about Kyle Schwarber’s knee, this game against the Dbacks just got a whole lot bigger. I know it’s the 4th game of the season, and the Cubs have looked great thus far, I know. But with this devastating injury hanging over the team, it’s so important to keep the momentum, and mojo,
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
A couple of lefties take the hill tonight for the series finale between the Cubs and Angels. For the boys in blue, Jon Lester takes the ball in his 6th career start in Anaheim. On the other side, 24 year old Andrew Heaney will be called upon to face the Cub’s dangerous lineup. Let’s start
If that isn’t exactly what we’re looking for, I don’t know what is. Not even sure where to start, so I’ll start by saying last night’s win kind of made me feel like this… #MONEY But in all seriousness, this was a complete performance out of the Cubbies. Arrieta pitched 7 absolutely stellar innings, allowing
You’re damn right we’re excited! Here’s a great hype video from the guys over at Sports Mockery, enjoy!
I don’t know about you, but having this guy on the hill to start the season makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. Here’s Jake’s no hitter from last season against the Dodgers: Sidenote: Jake is JACKED
I just ate probably the best chimichanga I’ve ever had accompanied by this 32oz behemoth of a dos equis, and wanted to say a few words before Opening Day. I think from a personal perspective, this is one of the most anticipated seasons I can remember, for a few reasons. Obviously the fact that we
Great stuff from the Cubbies yesterday. Over 5 innings, Lester struck out 10, allowing only one hit. Offensively, the boys looked great also. Bryant, La Stella, and Soler all had multi-hit games, David Ross went 3 for 3 with 3 doubles and 4 RBI, and Schwarber went deep for the second time this spring. But it
Javier Baez has been impressing everyone with his versatility. Being able to play essentially anywhere on the diamond adds some immediate value that some of the best prospects don’t have. And Javy doesn’t just play the positions, he plays them well. But most importantly, with the Cubs’ sights set on a world championship, a young
