Chicago Cubs year in review – Starting pitching

Cubs pitching had a little bit of everything in 2014. The good, the bad, and the ugly. The good with Jake Arrieta and Kyle Hendricks, the bad with Travis Wood and Edwin Jackson continued to be ugly. I would say something about the progress of Jeff Samardzija, but he pitched his way out of my piece. Here are my thoughts on Jason Hammel, thanks for being a top-10 for the Cubs and helping us get Addison Russel ...

White Sox Swept By Tribe, Orioles Fly Into Town

So the White Sox were slept into oblivion in a three game set with the division rival Cleveland Indians. Believe me folks it wasn't pretty. Quite frankly, I don't even think the Indians' series is worth the characters I'm about to type to tell you about it but here it goes. The series started with a double header in Chicago. The first game saw former top Arizona prospect Trevor Bauer face our overly twitter ...

Bad Luck Robin: Wrong Year to have “Manager of the Year” Candidacy

In most seasons, a manager that takes a team that disappointed the prior season, was expected to be “rebuilding” during the current season and was only picked to win 65 games would be a shoe-in to win the Manager of the Year award for their league.

Stop Losing to the Orioles!

While the Twins are in the middle of being 4-game swept by the Rangers, the Sox are falling to the Orioles, at home.

In one inning Konerko, Que ...

Sox Stomp Tigers

In game 1 of the 4 game set and the first of today's day/night doubleheader, the Sox dropped the hammer on the rival Tigers.  A 12-2 score leaves the Tigers gasping for air as game 2 is on the horizon, as well as sinking very quickly in the division as they now stand 8 games out. The Sox have a great opportunity this week to make some headway not only on the Tigers, but also on the Twinks.  With the Twink l ...
