So, we've got the team. My best guess at the 25-man roster (Wins Above Replacement – Myles):
St Louis Cardinals 0 @ Chicago Cubs 7
How 'bout that Jake Arrieta, huh? I'm starting to think we won the Feldman trade. Arrieta tossed 7 shutout innings against the cards, allowing ...
We've taken a look at the 2014 Cubs Payroll as part of this series and we learned that it's unlikely the Cubs are going to have enough money to buy themselves a championship. ...
Edwin Jackson had a good/crappy night
For the first time, Jackson looked like the pitcher the Cubs were expecting when they signed him to a four year deal. He hit 97 on the Sox gun ...
Ian Stewart is injured. It's not his wrist this time, but he'll be out a few weeks. Luis Valbuena has already made the team. Josh Vitters is also out an other 2-3 weeks, but ...

Another day another Anthony Rizzo HR. He decided to pair his 13th shot of the year with a triple and kept his average at .359. Brett Jackson on the other hand is really scuffling ...
It was a pitching duel in Des Moines yesterday as Brett Jackson scored the only run of the game on a balk. Casey Coleman was the pitcher for Iowa working 7 IP and only giving up ...
Was there a Cubs game yesterday?
I was so in shock at Wisconsin's ability to score more than 60 points that I failed to pay attention to yesterday's games. It looks like it ...
