The last time the Chicago Cubs’ Jake Arrieta set foot on the field at PNC Park, he ousted the Pirates from the playoffs with a 4-0 shutout. The Chicago Cubs got a solid start from Jason Hammel, who lasted just long enough to qualify for the win in last nights 7-2 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Here’s a little recap of the first month of the 2016 MLB season in case you missed it: the Chicago Cubs are the best team in baseball and it’s not even close. The Cubs enter May 3rd coming off a win over division-rival Pittsburgh and have the best record in the league at 18-6. To get an idea of how good the Cubs are right now, the last time they were 18-6 was 1907 (the penultimate...
The Chicago Cubs have been hit with the injury bug lately and now the Cubs lose another valuable outfielder to a hamstring injury. If you missed yesterday’s Chicago Cubs game, you may have missed that OF Matt Szczur was pulled from the game with a hamstring injury after attempting to steal home during the fifth inning. After […] Chicago Cubs: Szczur Placed on 15-Day DL, Kalish...

I don’t know what the scariest thing is about the Cubs. It might be that they have baseball’s best record, and a historically excellent run differential. Or maybe it’s that they have baseball’s best record, and a historically excellent run differential, while Jason Heyward has been a worse hitter than Alexei Ramirez (who has been a bad hitter). Heyward hasn’t gotten going...
The sporting world was mesmerized by Leicester City's clinching of the prestigious Barclays Premier League title Monday. And because a certain National League squad hasn't won the World Series since 1908, it's easy to draw a baseball parallel to Leicester ending its 132-year wait for glory.

April was a hell of a month for the Chicago Cubs. They lost Kyle Schwarber for the season, called Munenori Kawasaki up to the big leagues, lost him to Triple-A Iowa shortly thereafter, and tied a 109-year-old record for wins in the month (17). Let’s take a look back at the month’s top performers, and […]
Some of the same raw emotions from last year’s wild-card game resurfaced during the Cubs' win over the Pirates on Monday, with Joe Maddon venting all the way.

OSS: Cubs rack up Cole's pitch count for the second game in a row and chase him early. Three up: Anthony Rizzo paced the Cubs in WPA on the day, mostly due to a game tying double in the third inning and another in the fifth. It is great to see the hits dropping for him again. David Ross had the other big day at the plate, hitting an RBI single in the fifth to...

It was a cold and windy week in Chicago, but some Cubs prospects are hot. Let’s recap this week in the minors. Iowa Cubs (Triple-A) (9-12) Albert Almora was the biggest story in the farm system this week, as he continued his torrid start to the season. He hit two more homers, and bumped his […]
It’s been a long time since the Chicago Cubs have been a champion on the field. Sunday…they were joined by two. 16-time World Champion Rick Flair and his daughter Charlotte, the reigning WWE Women’s champ, made a pit stop at Wrigley Field on their way to Sunday’s pay-per-view in Rosemont. First order of business…the requisite clubhouse photo op with the championship belt...
The Cubs played an extra-inning matinee under grey Chicago skies on Sunday, closing out a rain-shortened two-game set against the Braves. The main news going into today’s game was Kris Bryant’s return from a brief hiatus due to an ankle sprain. He was sporting a brace in the game, but given the Cubs’ depth, one has to think […]
When Warren G took over the Wrigley Field press box Friday, Chicago Cubs fans heard the greatest four words they’ll hear all season outside of “your World Champion Cubs”. “Cubbies fans…mount up!” It all went south after that. Yup. The “Regulator” himself botched “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” and fans both at the ballpark and online let him know all about it....
Stud right-hander Jake Arrieta of the Chicago Cubs has looked like the most dominant pitcher in Major League Baseball this year. With a 5-0 record to go along with a 1.00 ERA, a 0.78 WHIP, and 32 strikeouts in his first five starts, Arrieta is somehow managing to top a 2015 campaign in which he beat out the likes of Clayton Kershaw and Zack Greinke to win the NL Cy Young Award. But...
CHICAGO (AP) An MRI has confirmed that Kris Bryant of the Chicago Cubs has a minor right ankle sprain. The 2015 NL Rookie of the Year wasn't in the lineup Friday against the Atlanta Braves, but manager Joe Maddon said he might be available off the bench late in the game. Bryant was injured running the bases in the third inning Thursday of Chicago's 7-2 victory over the Milwaukee...

The Major League Baseball season is closing out its first month of the 2016 season this weekend, and while the first 30 days of the season tell very little of what the big picture will be once it is fully painted, it does provide a backdrop for early season predictions. Entering the year, fans of the two respective clubs in the city of Chicago were receiving very different pieces...
Greg Maddux has an almost impeccable reputation amongst fans and media, but some of his former teammates might not share in the same effervescent praise. It turns out the Hall of Fame pitcher was a devious, if not outright disgusting, clubhouse prankster. Tom Glavine just told us Greg Maddux used to take shirts out of teammates lockers, wipe his rear end with them, & put back...
CHICAGO (AP) Chicago Cubs catcher Miguel Montero is headed to the 15-day disabled list with lower back tightness. Catcher Tim Federowicz was traveling from Triple-A Iowa on Thursday to take Montero's roster spot. Montero was a late scratch from Tuesday's game against Milwaukee and hasn't played since Sunday. The move is retroactive to Monday and Cubs manager Joe Maddon expects...
