After a nice little run to start the season, the Cubs have come back to Earth somewhat. It’s been a tough stretch, going just .500 over the last 30 games and losing 6 of the last 10 (to very good…

OSS: A 25-year old starter shut the Padres out, and a 23-year old and a 21-year old provided the power. Three Up 1. Kyle Hendricks had a game score of 84. That’s tied for 9th-best this year, and it was doozy. He…

Well, it’s happened. The biggest prospect the Cubs have had since Mark Prior (or Corey Patterson, if we’re talking positional prospects). Kris Bryant came up to ridiculously awesome fanfare. It didn’t last. After his third consecutive strikeout in his first…

OSS: Schlitter and Motte implode, and the Cubs fail to convert on two bases-loaded situations. Three Up 1. Dexter Fowler got things started in this game, singling and scoring in the first. Then, he bunted for a single in the 9th,…
