An Ode to Starlin Castro

Upon hearing the news of the trade of Starlin Castro, I decided to take a break from writing my usual profile features and write a eulogy of sorts for him. To me, Castro is the final link to an era of Cubs baseball that most of us hope we never see again, a time where […]

Cubs Year in Review – 2014

It took the Kansas City Royals 29 years to return to the playoffs this season and with a sweep of the Detroit Tigers, the baseball world is abuzz of the Royals. If anything, Cubs fans are jealous, but also hopeful that the current rebuild will do much of the same for their favorite team. Usually […]

Cubs Month In Review – September

In the final month of the season, Cubs fans learned a lot about their team and got a glimpse of what they might see next season. The Cubs played a lot of teams in the thick of the playoff race and held their own, finishing with a 12-13 record without much help from Starlin Castro […]

Cubs Month In Review – August

What a difference a year makes. At this time last year, with much of the roster gutted from the trade deadline, the team had to rely on the few minor leaguers they had, plus some veteran journeyman to finish out the season. The team struggled to a terrible 17 wins for the final two months […]

With just three days remaining until the trade deadline and over a month remaining until the waiver deadline, the Cubs still have a few players who we haven’t profiled who could be of some interest to other teams. Let’s take a look and see what the Cubs might expect to receive in return.

Trade Value of Luis Valbuena

Trade Value of Justin Ruggiano

With the deadline, just a couple of weeks away and the big fish of Jeff Samardzija and Jason Hammel sent off to Oakland, the Cubs will turn to deal some of their spare parts in hopes of continuing to build depth for their farm system. One player that has really started to open some teams’ […]

Cubs Month In Review – June

As our month in review series continues, we enter the halfway point of the Cubs season with the Cubs 11 games under .500 with a record of 35-46 and with a similar record last year of 34-45 at this point, on the surface it seems not much as changed for the Cubs at all. If […]
