#Cubs option Javier Baez to Triple-A, reassign Kris Bryant and Addison Russell to minor league camp. +Nicholas D. Blazek​ has the more on the moves. 
After believing he would break camp with the Chicago Cubs–only to later be told he wasn’t guaranteed a spot–Javier Baez was officially optioned to Triple-A Iowa today in the fifth round of roster cuts for the team this spring. Baez optioned to Iowa. Bryant and Russell sent down as well, per Cubs. — Jesse Rogers […]

Jon Lester's bad outing can still help the Chicago #Cubs because of his positive attitude, no matter the results. 
It’s going to happen. Even the greatest athletes in any sport will have a bad game from time to time. Beneath the surface, we will judge the best by how they handle the adversity. The Chicago Cubs received their first lesson on Monday. Jon Lester‘s statline included a few crooked numbers. The Washington state native […]

Are the #Cubs and Sammy Sosa working towards a possible reunion? It's too soon to tell, but Theo Epstein is open to it, as long as Sosa makes things right first. 
The Chicago Cubs have been an organization that have always welcomed back former players in various forms. Now, with Theo Epstein’s Boston Red Sox ties,you’re seeing that expand to them as well. The rehiring of Manny Ramirez (who has not officially retired by the way) and Kevin Youkilis seemed to have drawn out a statement […]

The #Cubs will honor Ernie Banks throughout the season; Rizzo for MVP? This and more in the #MorningMarquee 
In news that was surprising to none of us, the Chicago Cubs announced they would be honoring the late Ernie Banks throughout this entire season. The team will wear a patch on both home and away jerseys, as well as Special Ceremonies set for Opening Night. The Cub great spent all 19 seasons of his […]

The Chicago #Cubs didn't sign James Shields; Best non-move of the winter? +Nicholas D. Blazek​ gives his thoughts. 
Let me preface this by saying when I was younger, I couldn’t understand why the Chicago Cubs wouldn’t just go get every good free agent available. I mean, most were better than the players we had, so why not just make that happen? In my accrued time on this earth, and what I hope is […]

Who's going to snag that last spot in the #Cubs rotation? We'll make the case for each, starting with Travis Wood. +Nicholas D. Blazek​ makes the case for the former All-Star. 
The Chicago Cubs knew they wanted to improve their starting pitching when this off-season began. We all had hopes, but none of us knew it would end the way it did signing Jon Lester and bringing back Jason Hammel. So in theory, there’s only one spot left in the Cub’s rotation. Who gets it? I […]

The #Cubs Jon Lester isn't likely to be throwing a complete game shutout on Opening Night-unless he is really efficient. Skipper Joe Maddon says he's likely to be on a pitch count after a missed spring start. 
So there’s a chance we might not get to see a complete game shutout on Opening Night against the St. Louis Cardinals. While the Chicago Cubs want to start 2015 with a bang, it won’t be at the cost of ace Jon Lester. Cubs’ skipper Joe Maddon has said that Lester could be on a […]

The #Cubs are going to have a hard time keeping Kris Bryant out of Wrigley to start the season. But Mike Olt is making his best case as well. Can you have too much? Theo and Co. hope so. 
New manager. New staff ace. Predictions of winning the division. Top ranked farm system in baseball. Yet the dilemma this Chicago Cubs front office will soon have to face is very real. One that many have their eye on, including the MLB Players Association. What to do with Kris Bryant? We’ve hammered last year’s 43 […]

It's a good day to be a #Cubs fan when Baseball Prospectus thinks a kid like Kris Bryant should be ranked BEHIND Addison Russell. So much talent... Not a bad thing. 
Over the last year, we’ve watched Chicago Cubs’ third base Kris Bryant dominate every league in which he’s played. MVP. Home run records. There has been no let down from him. And Cubs’ fans can’t wait to get a glimpse of him this year at Wrigley Field. And according to Baseball Prospectus? He’s not even […]

Can Felix Doubront win the last spot in the #Cubs rotation? Even if he doesn't, he'll be important to the bullpen. - - +Nicholas D. Blazek​ has the story
In a continuing look at the battle for the final spot in the Chicago Cubs rotation, today we take a look at Felix Doubront. After coming over from Boston, he was given a late look as a starter after being taken out of the Red Sox rotation prior to the trade. Theo Epstein is familiar […]
