Pre-Gamin’: Cubs v. Indians (2:05 CT) – Lineup, Broadcast Info,...

A couple of interesting positional starters today.

Cubs vs. Indians at Goodyear Preview, Thursday 3/6, 2:05 CT

The Cubs make their first trip to the western edges of the Phoenix area this afternoon. SCOTTSDALE, Arizona -- It's rather cloudy in the Valley of the Sun today, although no rain is in the forecast, so the Cubs and Indians will proceed with their game, which I will be listening to online with all of you. Here's a random thought I had when I heard the Cubs had signed Casper Wells to a minor-league deal with a NRI. Last June 28, Wells pitched the ninth inning for the White Sox in a 19-10 blowout

Convalescence Watch: Arrieta, Castro, Russell, Olt

Arrieta is feeling good after throwing off the mound, and Russell isn't worried about his dead arm.

Sammy Sosa: When is He Coming Back? Is There a Market Advantage?...

Tom Ricketts recently spoke about the former Cubs star. Is it finally time to mend fences? Is there some value there?

Know Your Enemy: Tampa Bay Rays

The Cubs and Rays have made some recent trades, but have rarely played each other. The Tampa Bay Rays (along with the Oakland Athletics) are the poster children for "How to succeed in baseball without a huge payroll." The Rays, after a decade of bad expansion-team play, have now had six straight winning seasons and been in the postseason four of those years, with a World Series appearance. We'd take that... right? This year's Rays will again be in the playoff conversation. This could be the

So Many Players and So Little Time and Other Bullets

There isn't a main Bullet today, as far as I can tell. Just a lot of players to discuss.

Cub Tracks Is Ready For Ted

Welcome back, Mr. Lilly. Your attitude is set to be a welcome addition. In other news, Tom Ricketts talks about a wide variety of subjects, including winning, Sammy, and gay players in MLB. Prospect buzz is getting turned to "11" and Gordo goes back to Ryan Theriot's gauntlet. Weird mix today. See what you think. From Comcast SportsNet (Video) Rick Renteria talks about his early impressions of the Cubs' pitching staff. Jason Parks of Baseball Prospectus is drooling over the Cubs' prospects.

No good reason to keep Sosa away

Tom Ricketts was asked on the radio what he called "a really good question." The really good answer would have been that he'll invite Sammy Sosa back into the Cubs' family.

No Shortage at Shortstop, Arrieta Throws Off a Mound and Other...

The Cubs’ shortstop is Starlin Castro and Iowa’s shortstop is Javier Baez at least that is what Jed Hoyer said Wednesday. But with every home run Baez hits and every play he makes in the field while Castro is out of the lineup, the noise from the fan base gets louder about Baez breaking camp […]The post No Shortage at Shortstop, Arrieta Throws Off a Mound and Other Cubs Spring Training News appeared first on Chicago Cubs Online.

Cubs’ Coghlan healthy again after pie went awry in 2010

MESA, Ariz. — Did you hear the one about the outfielder who got hurt pushing a towel full of shaving cream into a teammate’s face? It left a pie hole in the lineup.

Samardzija is a real pressure pitcher

MESA, Ariz. — The pressure is on Jeff Samardzija like it’s never been before. And he knows it. He got his chance to prove he could be a starter two years ago. Last year was about showing he could last a full season and throw 200 innings. This time around, there’s nothing left for the Cubs’ ace to show but performance. The kind of performance his 200 strikeouts last season suggest is in him. The kind of performance behind his unwillingness to give the Cubs a hometown discount on a contract. “Yeah

Samardzijia struggles as Cubs lose to Rockies

MESA, Ariz. — Jeff Samardzija struggled with his command at times in a three-inning outing Wednesday in a Colorado Rockies split-squad’s 7-5 victory over the Chicago Cubs on Wednesday. The Cubs’ possible opening-day starter gave up two straight singles then, after a sacrifice bunt, hit a batter and walked the next in a rocky two-run third inning. In three innings, he gave up three runs and four hits. Rockies projected starter Tyler Chatwood gave up one unearned run in 2 2-3 innings. He walked tw

Cubs Throw Away A Long, Sloppy Spring Training Game – Rockies...

Spring Training Game Six – Cubs 5, Rockies (ss) 7 WP – Chris Martin (1-0) LP – Chris Rusin (0-2) Save – Scott Oberg (1) Javier Baez and George Kottaras hit back-to-back spring jacks in the sixth inning that tied the game at three but Rosell Herrera hit a Little League Grand Slam in the […]The post Cubs Throw Away A Long, Sloppy Spring Training Game – Rockies 7, Cubs 5 appeared first on Chicago Cubs Online.

Wright, Russell head Cubs relief corps

The Cubs' middle-relief situation last year was not so much a revolving door but a wildly spinning door. Management hopes that settles down this year. The Cubs have added lefty Wesley Wright to take some of the load off James Russell, and they may have a closer of the future in Pedro Strop.

Rockies 7, Cubs 5: Error... Error... Error... Home Runs... Loss...

100 BCB points to anyone who can name the Star Trek Original Series episode referenced in the headline. MESA, Arizona -- All you can do is laugh. After a seventh inning like today's in Mesa, that is. The seventh inning, which lasted nearly an hour and produced six runs, five hits, five walks, two absurd errors and a wild pitch, felt like a game in a T-ball league, not a major-league game, not even acknowledging the fact that this is still the first full week of spring training and mostly minor

Samardzijia struggles for Cubs in loss to Rockies

Jeff Samardzija struggled with his command at times in a three-inning outing Wednesday in a Colorado Rockies split-squad’s 7-5 victory over the Cubs on Wednesday.The Cubs’ possible opening-day starter gave up two straight singles then, after a sacrifice bunt, hit a batter and walked the next in a rocky two-run third inning. In three innings, he gave up three runs and four hits.

Baez, Kottaras go deep in loss to Rockies

Javier Baez and George Kottaras hit back to back home runs for the Cubs, but the Rockies took advantage of a throwing error by Christian Villanueva to post a 7-5 win on Wednesday in front of 10,598 at Cubs Park on Wednesday afternoon.
