Paul Maholm pitched into the ninth inning to earn his first win in seven weeks and the Chicago Cubs hit three homers in a 4-0 victory over the Houston Astros on Friday.
If you’re looking for a reason to watch the 26-49 Cubs, look no further than Anthony Rizzo.
Sixty hours. That’s how long it has been since I last lit a cigarette.
Instead of flying in as Superman, Rizzo understands his call up is just the first step of many in the master plans laid out by Epstein and Hoyer to turn the Cubs from laughable losers into perennial champions.
David DeJesus and Starlin Castro, the top two players in the Chicago Cubs’ batting order, had four hits apiece on Saturday night. And neither table-setter scored.
He’s recorded 12 errors this season, but Tuesday night against the White Sox, Castro made one of the most amazing catches baseball has seen this season.
For those wishing to trade a 22-year-old Castro, be very careful what you wish for.
Epstein cited “philosophical differences” that led to the firing of Rudy Jaramillo on Tuesday, and it’s obvious the lack of taking pitches and working counts was a major part of those differences.
Darwin Barney had three RBIs and the Chicago Cubs used shortstop Jhonny Peralta’s two throwing errors in the eighth inning to push across the winning run in a 4-3 victory over the Detroit Tigers on Tuesday night.
Ryan Dempster further raised his trade value with eight shutout innings, pitching the Chicago Cubs past the Minnesota Twins 8-2 Sunday.
For the seemingly endless holes the Cubs have right now and the lapses he’s had, there’s no reason to think Starlin Castro is untouchable when it comes to building for the teams future.
Zack Greinke had a season-high 12 strikeouts and the Milwaukee Brewers rediscovered their offense, beating the Chicago Cubs 8-0 on Wednesday night.
Is tanking a season a wise route for the Cubs and the Bulls to pursue? And how much will it really help either team achieve its ultimate goals of winning a championship?
Benching your best player doesn’t really seem like it would be Ambien, does it, Dale?
Starlin Castro has improved defensively at shortstop this season, but he continues to have mental lapses.
The Chicago Cubs stopped their 12-game losing streak as Alfonso Soriano hit a go-ahead home run Monday in an 11-7 win over the San Diego Padres.
Consuming Cubs baseball is simply unhealthy right now, if it matters to you.
Pedro Alvarez, Andrew McCutchen and Garrett Jones homered, Erik Bedard pitched six shutout innings and the Pittsburgh Pirates beat Chicago 10-4 Sunday and sent the Cubs to their 12th consecutive defeat.
Not everybody grasps the concept of “fun bad.” You know, when your team is so dreadful you just throw your hands in the air and embrace the train wreck with laughter.
For the first time in more than a year, the Chicago Cubs finally won a game in Milwaukee.
