I love Kyle Schwarber. I really, really do. I’ve said many times that he is probably my favorite Cub. He has the most exciting bat in the National League and his unique ability to play several positions makes him a heck of an asset to the ballclub. But as we near the trade deadline, I
With the Cubs’ depth in the infield it was only a matter of time before either Kris Bryant or Javy Baez became every day outfielders. Since Bryant has put in a good amount of time in Left Field with the injury of Kyle Schwarber, it appears Joe Maddon is comfortable making him his every day
Could the Cubs get Mike Trout in a blockbuster move before the trade deadline? Maybe. But probably not. That didn’t stop Michael Bradburn at SB Nation from speculating on a very interesting idea. He writes: The deal: Javier Baez, Jorge Soler, Kyle Schwarber, Gleyber Torres, Duane Underwood, Billy McKinney, and Dan Vogelbach The rationale: This deal
For about 8 innings, last night was absolutely miserable for Cubs fans. It was a cold night, Lester didn’t have his best stuff, and until Grandpa Rossy singled in the bottom of the 7th, the Cubs were without a hit against Brandon Finnegan (who? Exactly.) but then, everything changed. After a Heyward single chased home
After sweeping a 2 game set in Anaheim, the Cubs made their way back to Arizona to play 4 games against the Diamondbacks. We got to compete with this Arizona team quite a bit in the Cactus League, with mixed results. The Dbacks have some of the most talented players in all of baseball on their roster.
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
