Cubs 9, Diamondbacks 2: Mike Olt, Free At Last

Cubs vs. Diamondbacks Preview, Tuesday 4/22, 7:05 CT
The Cubs go for two in a row against the visitors from Arizona. 'Twas the night before Wrigley's 100th birthday, and all through the house... Nah. Not doing that. Not the right time of year. Of note: The Cubs' all-time record against the Diamondbacks, through Monday, is 54-65 -- and 31-27 at Wrigley Field. That means that in Phoenix, the C...

Cubs 5, Diamondbacks 1: Travis Wood, Hitting Star

Cubs vs. Diamondbacks Preview, Monday 4/21, 7:05 CT
The two worst teams in the National League meet in the first of a four-game series. Something's gotta give. I'm calling this "The Resistible Force vs. The Movable Object" series. Both these teams have been really, really bad this year. The Cubs have had a pathetic offense which currently ranks 28th in MLB. The D'backs have had awful pitching that has allowed th...

MLB Bullets Knocks The Cover Off The Ball
Bryce Harper gets pulled for not running out a ground out. Carlos Gomez starts a fight after not running out a triple, in a manner of speaking. The Tigers don't have a shortstop. Mark Buehrle is off to a great start and someone hits the cover off the ball. Literally. Happy Easter Monday or Patriots Day or whatever holiday you want today to be. ...
