Cubs vs. Rockies Preview, Tuesday 7/29, 7:05 CT
The Cubs go for their second straight win over the Rockies. Tonight's game is a random midsummer game between two bad teams going nowhere. Thus, I don't have a whole lot to say about this matchup. You can see the particulars below. One thing I thought I'd pass along first is

Orioles, Nationals Involved In TV Rights Lawsuit
The TV rights dispute between the Orioles and Nationals has gone public. This has the potential to be very bad news for Bud Selig and MLB. The Hollywood Reporter is not known for its baseball coverage, but today they dropped a bombshell. Commis...

Cubs System Sonogram Returns To Geneva
Despite the departure of Kyle Schwarber and Jake Hannemann, the Kane County Cougars are still worth a look. It's been a while since my last article. There are a few reasons for that. One of them is, I usually don't bother writing something that someone else recently said better than I could have. There's no point putting an article together when Baseball America, our M...

Cubs Heroes and Goats: Game 104
Tsuyoshi Wada pitches seven strong innings, allowing only five hits and one run on his way to his first Superhero award of the season. That's a nice way to start the series. Now let's see how the next couple of games go. Be prepared to avert your eyes. Graphs for Game 104 (courtesy of 

Cubs 4, Rockies 1: Wada Win!
The 33-year-old Japanese pitcher posted his first major-league win. Yes, I'll stop using the puns on Tsuyoshi Wada's name eventually... but not yet, especially not on the day after he posted his first big-league victory, a 4-1 Cubs win over the Rockies on yet ano...

Cub Tracks Is Next In Line
Will any other Cubs be traded before Thursday's non-waiver deadline? Kyle Hendricks gets praised, more on prospect lists, and I got called in to pinch-hit on Cub Tracks today. We must be facing a left-hander. From CSN Chicago: The Cubs

Concessions Of A Cubs Fan: The Pulled Pork Dog
BCB's Danny Rockett eats a Pulled Pork Dog so you don't have to. The first question that came to mind when considering the Cubs celebration of the 1970s with a Pulled Pork Dog was "Why pulled pork?" Wouldn't a quiche or fondue dog be a more appropriate homage to the decade of disco? BBQ'...

Tradeable Cubs: Fun With Proposals
We've looked at every player, now it's time to throw out some deals. Trade season is in full swing and with less than a week until the July 31 non-waiver deadline, trade chatter is at its peak. Major players have been dealt including Jeff Samardzija,

Cubs Heroes and Goats: Game 103
The pitching sweeps the Hero podium on Sunday, and the hitting sweeps the Goats. To all of my Heroes and Goats readers out there: There will not be a piece for Game 102 (Saturday's 6-3 loss), but a shout-out goes out to Nate Schierholtz whose pinch-hit homer on Saturday to t...

MLB Bullets Is Bigger Than The Game
The Red Sox and Rays get into a war of words. The Rays are back in the playoff hunt and everything must go for the Red Sox. Troy Tulowitzki is in New York, where they can spell his name. A prospect got promoted and some players are angry. I'm only going to marginally touch on the Hall of Fame induction ceremonies. Al has already written separate artic...

Greg Maddux Is Officially A Hall Of Famer
If only he'd spent his entire career in Chicago. There isn't a whole lot I can add to what I wrote last week about my own personal memories of Greg Maddux' great career as a Chicago Cub...

Cardinals 1, Cubs 0: Nailbiter
That was... unexpected. Sunday was another day reminiscent of so many I experienced at Wrigley Field back in the 1970s: warm, sunny, with the wind blowing out strongly (this time, 17 miles per hour toward right field). With those conditions and the way the Cubs had hit

Cubs vs. Cardinals Preview, Sunday 7/27, 1:20 CT
