CUBS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Manny Leaves Iowa Cubs On A Positive Note

(Paat Kelly/MiLB.com)Manny Ramriez left the Cubs' AAA affiliate on Friday due to a knee injury—with three games left on the schedule. We can all speculate as to whether this was a convenient 'near-the-end-of-the-season' malady. But, as far as Theo Epstein goes, that type of speculation is a thing of the past. According to Theo, Manny was nothing but a positive influence...

Jorge Soler Sets Another Record

Through five games, Jorge Soler has been…..impressive. From homering, four pitches into his major league career, to upstaging even Javier Baez; “Soler-Power” has taken over the Cubs. Just when it seemed Cubs fans couldn’t have more to get excited about, Soler hit a double in his first at-bat at Wrigley. While, this may not seem overly important, it’s only the seventh time...

Cubs Rumors: Chicago can add payroll in coming years

The Chicago Cubs have already called up a couple of their future pieces in Javier Baez and Jorge Soler. On the way, they have Kris Bryant, Albert Almora, Addison Russell, and more intriguing young talent that is not far from reaching the majors. However, their surplus of position players does not make up for the lack of major league and minor league talent.#168231267 / gettyimages...

Chicago Cubs: Jorge Soler making an impression

Jorge Soler In his first career at-bat in the major leagues, Jorge Soler took one of the better pitchers in the National league deep for a solo home run to straight away center field. Since then, Soler has continued to show why the Chicago Cubs gave him a $30 million deal before he even put on a Cubs uniform. Soler is hitting .533 with three home runs and seven RBIs in just four...

Chicago Cubs: Weekend of promise

Although the Chicago Cubs have seemingly been out of the race for a playoff spot for quite some time now, this weekend against their arch rivals the St. Louis Cardinals shows that the Cubs are very close to competing with the National League Central’s cream of the crop. If this weekend is a sign of things to come for the Cubs, then there is good reason to be very optimistic as...

Minor Accomplishments: Is Your Kris On My List?

September call-ups are almost upon us. Despite monster minor league numbers, it appears the Cubs are not going to add Kris Bryant to the roster. Bryant dominated in 2014, hitting an obscene .328/.438/.674 with 43 home runs, 114 runs, 102 RBIs and even 15 steals across two levels of the minors. I couldn't hit that in Bases Loaded on my Nintendo. While the Cubs did promote Javier...

Manny Ramirez's Iowa Cubs tenure is over

Manny Ramirez left Des Moines as surprisingly as he came. The controversial slugger's tenure as a player-coach with the Iowa Cubs has come to an end, manager Marty Pevey said before Friday's game at Principal Park. Pevey said that Ramirez, who was placed on the disabled list Aug. 23 with a knee injury, went to Arizona to get an MRI. Pevey added that Ramirez's trip out...

How Far Have the Cubs Come?

So far, Soler . . . so good. It has been almost three years, nearly three hundred losses, and three drafts since the Cubs hired Theo Epstein to save the Cubs from their sins and rescue them from eternal damnation in their permanent subterranean dwelling in the Central Division’s fiery core. And if you think that metaphor is overblown in ridiculous, it was meant to match the expectations...

When a playoff contender takes a look at the final few weeks of its regular season schedule, the natural focus turns to the games against teams they are competing with for the pennant. But how many times do we see those clubs stumble against the overlooked foes that they thought were simply playing out the string.

Watch the Cubs’ Jorge Soler its Home Run In First MLB At-Bat
