Diamondbacks interested in Samardzija
Buster Olney got the Samardzija trade train rolling with a tweet last week saying that the Cubs and D-Backs would keep talking about a Jeff Samardzija ...
Brad Ausmus to manage Tigers
Ausmus is currently in Detroit finalizing the deal. Hopefully the contact includes a clause requiring Ausmus to smoke five packs a day to ensure continuity ...
Matthew Cerrone of Metsblog is reporting that the Cubs are looking for pitching in a Starlin Castro trade, 'according to people familiar with the organization'. With Javier ...
Last season was a lost year for Starlin Castro. While many were optimistic about his ability to take a step forward (myself included), quite the opposite happened. Castro got worse, ...
Per Ken Rosenthal, the Cubs fired Dale Sveum today. Honestly, I would have been okay with this whichever way it went. I was never super enamored with Sveum, but I don't think he's ...
For some reason, I was thinking that Logan Watkins was drafted in the 3rd round in 2008. He did sign for $600,000, which was probably 2nd round money considering the Cubs draft order ...
I watch Cubs games when I can.
I follow the scores on Gameday most of the time.
I at least check the alerts informing me of lead changes.
I kind of care if the Cubs win.
I read ...
Lately there have been some comparisons between Anthony Rizzo and Starlin Castro that have come out of nowhere. We've talked a lot about Starlin Castro around here so before we ...
Starlin Castro has been ripped pretty hard lately, and it's understandable, as a Cubs fan, why we'd be so angry. Castro was a very good player (never great) when he broke into ...
Castro was dropped to eighth in the batting order last night, right about where he belongs based on his numbers this season. Not surprisingly, Starlin Castro is a little frustrated ...
I didn't see the Cubs and Cardinals game yesterday, but Starlin Castro had another costly mental error.
Castro's brain cramp on a popup in the fifth allowed the Cardinals to ...
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. ...
I thought it was about time to take a more thorough look at the 2014 Cubs and eventually discuss ways in which they could contend. The first thing to look at is how much money the Cubs ...
Sitrick had a nice tweet about how Starlin Castro (I first typed Stalin Castro and really thought about keeping it) leads the team among qualified Cubes in batting average. I wanted ...
The Cubs have locked up two of their core talents in Starlin Castro and Anthony Rizzo already. There have been rumors about the Cubs interest in locking up Jeff Samardzija, but it hasn't ...
Earlier the Cubs acquired Mike Olt, CJ Edwards, Justin Grimm and a player to be named later for Matt Garza. Over the next two days I'm going to write short pieces on each of ...
Prior to the 2010 season, Alcides Escobar was ranked by Baseball America as the 12th best prospect in baseball. That same year, Starlin Castro was ranked 16th. Also prior to 2010, Elvis ...
It's safe to say that it's been a disappointing season for Starlin Castro. 82 games into the season, Castro's -1.4 fWAR makes Jeff Francoeur look like a valuable major ...
Over the last two or three days, I've read a few articles that have mentioned that the Cubs could contend as early as next season. I don't want to single anybody out, because ...
The other day I happened to think of Ronny Cedeno and how awful he was in 2006. I couldn't help but wonder how Starlin Castro's 2013 season compared to Cedeno's 2005.
