Yankees 2, Cubs 0: Apologies To Ernest Lawrence Thayer

The Cubs' visit to the Bronx can be summed up only by making mayhem on the form of a famous baseball poem. The outlook wasn't brilliant for the Chicago nine that day. They'd been shut out already with one more game yet to play. And when ...

Cubs Minor League Wrap: April 16

The Cubs system had a great day today. Except for Daytona, who have had better years. Like last season when they won the FSL title. Albert Almora turned 20 today and did not play in the Daytona loss. However, he says he's fine and will sta...

Cubs vs. Yankees Game 2 Preview, Wednesday 4/16, 6:05 CT

There will be a lot going on next Wednesday at Wrigley Field in addition to a baseball game. Perhaps you've heard. The ballpark we now know as Wrigley Field opened as Weeghman Park April 23, 1914. The 100th anniversary of that date is com...

Cubs vs. Yankees Game 1 Preview, Wednesday 4/16, 12:05 CT

This game is the makeup of Tuesday night's rainout. The Cubs never did win a game in the original Yankee Stadium. They were swept out of the World Series in 1932 and 1938, losing two games each of those years there, and were swept in a thr...

MLB Bullets Is Under Further Review

They're still working out the kinks on instant replay. The Diamondbacks are terrible, but they won't call up their top prospect. Yasiel Puig's exit from Cuba was pretty scary. The Yankees have a new roommate and a minor league mascot gives ...

Cubs Minor League Wrap: April 15

Darnell McDonald Named Cubs Front-Office Assistant

It's an enforced off day due to rain, so let's have some news. Darnell McDonald played in just 25 games for last year's Cubs, hitting .302/.351/.434, and 15 more for the team in sprin...

2014 MLB Draft Prep Begs An Ace

Since the top few picks in this year's draft figure to be pitchers, can the Cubs secure an ace? To get devotees of the 20/80 scale to have a drawn-out quarrel, have them define what an "ace" is. To some, it will be a pitcher with two 70s (...

Fun With Cubs Small Sample Sizes

So what can the first 12 games tell us about the rest of the season? Absolutely nothing. But that's not going to stop me. I've got to admit it: I love small sample sizes. While I know they're ridiculous, I can't help but enjoy the ridiculo...

Yankees, Cubs Postponed In New York

Rain is forecast all day and all evening in the Bronx, so the Yankees did the right thing. Some teams (ahem!) wait forever to call games, make their fans sit out in miserable conditions, and... Well, let's just say the New York Yankees do...

Cubs System Sonogram: Why Are The Kane County Cougars Better?

Cub Tracks Is Feeling Taxed
