Chicago players were upset about the news of teammate Alfonso Soriano’s impending trade to the Yankees, and manager Dale Sveum thought that played a part in the Cubs’ 3-1 loss to the Arizona Diamondbacks.
Is Starlin Castro turning the corner again?
I get paid to grade things, even though I tell students that they earn grades rather than get them subjectively.
Alfonso Soriano hit two of the Cubs’ season high five home runs and Travis Wood earned his first win in nearly six weeks in Chicago’s 7-2 victory over the Los Angeles Angels on Tuesday night
It’s an interesting question the Cubs should maybe consider.
Derek Norris scored on a passed ball with two outs in the seventh inning and the Oakland Athletics beat the Chicago Cubs 1-0 on Thursday.
Matt Garza plans to pitch as well as he can for the Chicago Cubs as long as he’s with the team. That’s how he’s dealing with all this trade talk.
One bad pitch blew what would’ve given the Chicago Cubs something they’ve rarely achieved this season: a winning streak.
It didn’t matter the Chicago Cubs nearly blew a six-run lead against the Seattle Mariners on Sunday.
Mike Leake combined with Aroldis Chapman on a three-hitter and Todd Frazier hit a tiebreaking home run in the seventh inning against Travis Wood, leading the Cincinnati Reds over the Chicago Cubs 2-1 Wednesday for their record 12th straight win at Wrigley Field.

Carlos Beltran and Jon Jay drove in two runs apiece, and the St. Louis Cardinals capped an impressive trip with a 5-4 victory over the Chicago Cubs on Wednesday.
Scott Feldman retired 18 straight on his way to his first career complete game and the Chicago Cubs took advantage of former No. 1 pick Andrew Cashner’s wildness in a 6-2 win over the San Diego Padres on Wednesday night.
Chicago’s Dioner Navarro homered in the ninth off Steve Cishek, who nonetheless earned his third save in four chances.
