The #Cubs pen is improving, but has been inconsistent at best. Are there options out there that can help the club? We take a look at what's out there. 
Over the course of the season, the Chicago Cubs will need to address a few areas. While it seems the team is finding its stride, the bullpen is in need of help, the rotation could use another boost after the top three and they will need to decide what to do with the overabundance of […]

Fear not #Cubs fans, the offense will return. +Nicholas D. Blazek​ looks at why it's simply a 'bump in the road'. 
On April 28, the Chicago Cubs beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 6-2, winning their fourth in a row and sending some fans into an internal frenzy. Now, the fans are still in a frenzy, but for other reasons. Since that win, the Cubs have scored a combined six runs in the four games since. That’s led […]

Morning Marquee: #Cubs top surprises so far; And is it time to drink the Cubbies kool-aid? +Nicholas D. Blazek​ has the stories you might have missed from the day off. 
The Chicago Cubs have gotten off to a strong start in 2015, and along the way have had several surprises. Co-editor Jacob Misener takes a look at the top five, including the promotion of Addison Russell in mid-April, a move few of us saw happening this soon. Take a look and see what others made […]

The #Cubs Mike Olt still has the potential to be an impact player at the major league level, but it may not be in Chicago. His injury, paired with Bryant and Russell joining the team may spell the end of his run. - - Co-editor +Nicholas D. Blazek​ has more. 
Sadly, the Chicago Cubs’ Mike Olt may be the poster child for prospects that don’t meet expectation. And it’s not necessarily all his fault. Injuries slowed him early on after vision issues affected him following being hit in the head. Last season he looked like the prospect the Rangers thought would be a key piece, […]

The #Cubs dropped a tough one to the #Padres 5-4 in Krumrie Bryant's debut. He went hitless, but played solid in the field in the Wrigley debut. - +Nicholas D. Blazek​ ​has the recap from today's action. 
The day didn’t go as storybook as we all had hoped. For the Chicago Cubs, after an afternoon of what was seemingly a massive strike zone–they got pinched at the worst possible time. And there were no heroics for Kris Bryant at the plate, although he did look sparkling in the field. In the end, […]

The #Cubs are hoping for the best, but Neil Ramirez will undergo an MRI after leaving yesterday's game after only three pitches with "shoulder discomfort". - +Nicholas D. Blazek​ has more. 
The Chicago Cubs continue to make roster moves due to injuries, and sooner or later Kris Bryant may be part of one. After dealing with some “discomfort” while throwing in Thursday’s game against the Cincinnati Reds, Neil Ramirez was taken out of the game after three pitches. He’s expected to have an MRI on Thursday […]

Pregame Notes: Chicago #Cubs look for Jake Arrieta to earn series split against #STLCards.--Click for more. 
The Chicago Cubs have found their offense again, as they’ve scored 19 runs so far in the series against the St. Louis Cardinals. But the bullpen has been a little questionable as the Cubs have only one win so far to show for it. Sending Jake Arrieta (3-2, 2.84) to the mound tilts the odds […]

Morning Marquee: The #Cubs fell to the #Brewers 6-1 as the offense was again quiet; Interest in the #Phillies Cole Hamels still remains. +Nicholas D. Blazek​ has these and more in today's edition. 
A rough outing from the Chicago Cubs Jake Arrieta was a surprise, and so is the fact that this Cubs offense is in a bit of a slump. They’ve scored only one run each in their last three games and needed spectacular pitching to win 1-0 in the series opener against the Brewers. Ryan Braun […]

Is it time to start drinking the #Cubs blue kool-aid? Co-editor +Nicholas D. Blazek​ is, and you should be too. 
The Chicago Cubs spent big money on Jon Lester–and he’s been the biggest disappointment in the rotation. Kris Bryant was called up but hasn’t hit a home run yet. And one of the better relievers statistically in the bullpen? Edwin Jackson. So how is this team not terrible? Because skipper Joe Maddon makes it about […]

Jake Arrieta continues to pitch like an ace, and Kris Bryant continues to impress as the #Cubs topped the #Pirates 5-2. Oh, and Addison Russell is coming. So good to be a Cubs' fan. #LetsGo 
You just have to love when a plan starts to come together. The Chicago Cubs called up Kris Bryant to much fanfare on Friday to a less than stellar debut. Since then the kid has been worth every bit of the hype. Bryant went 3-for-4, including a game-tying RBI in the fifth, and a game-winning […]

Back in 2013, Kris Bryant wasn't a sure thing. But a group effort by the #Cubs made today possible. - +Nicholas D. Blazek​ has the story. 
April 17, 2015. A day that will hopefully be forever in our minds as the day the Chicago Cubs shed the “lovable losers” tag for good. Super prospect Kris Bryant will make his Major League Debut and fans will undoubtedly be falling over themselves at Wrigley Field to get a peek. Don’t be surprised to […]

Should the #Cubs look to lock up Jake Arrieta long-term? Pitching isn't cheap, and this could be an ideal move to improve from within. 
Both Chicago Cubs’ president Theo Epstein and general manager Jed Hoyer are forward thinkers – always looking towards the future on how to improve the organization. They saw the trend of hitting and runs scored steadily declining so they stacked up on big bats in their farm system. Maybe using that thought process on They […]
