The First Annual MLB Draft Timeline

In 2003, the Seattle Mariners drafted Adam Jones 37th overall with the final pick in the first round of the Rule 4 Draft, more commonly known as the First Year Player Draft, or simply the MLB Draft. Ten years later, he is arguably the best player taken in that first round, with apologies to Rickie Weeks. So how were 36 players selected before Jones, including some guy named Kyle Sleeth, who the Tigers took ...

Everything was beautiful except for bats, Liriano shut out Cubs 2-0 in Bucs opener

Summer sun and great starting pitching, but rather a quiet day behind the plate. The Cubs made it on base several times but squandered their chances, going 0 for 5 with RISP, in an afternoon pitcher’s duel. Francisco Liriano had Chicago hitless through four until Travis Wood singled to left. None the less they had opportunities in the second, fourth, fifth, sixth, and eighth innings due to five free passes, ...

Cubs Select Kris Bryant 2nd Overall in the MLB Draft

Draft day  is a big day for Cubs fans and many thought Mark Appel or Jonathan Gray would be the guy they would select with the 2nd overall pick. Instead  it was Kris Bryant, a third baseman from the University of San Diego. Bryant, who also can play the outfield, is widely regarded as the top position player in the draft and by some the top player in all of the draft. He hit 31 home runs in 228 AB's last ye ...

More night games coming to Wrigley Field

Today the proposal for more night games at Wrigley Field passed at City Council with no debate. The proposal is just  first step for Cubs chairman Tom Ricketts to gain revenue for his newly constructed Wrigley Field renovation plan. The approval will give the Cubs 46 night games per season, give the Cubs six Friday afternoon games with 3:05 starts and allow four concerts at Wrigley Field. Many Chicago Lake ...

Pujols gets away with one late, Cubs fall to Angels 4-3

The Cubs came into town when the Angels were down and like clockwork Albert Pujols was able to lift them back up and over us. Anaheim ended a four game skid at Chicago's expense, 4-3. We rarely get to see Pujols these days due to interleague play, but tonight he seemed just as we remembered. The Angels first baseman blasted a two-run shot late in the eighth off of Carlos Villanueva to give Anaheim the edge. ...

Wood Slams Cubs past White Sox

Travis Wood hasn't had much run support to work with all season, but today he helped his own cause. Wood connected on a 2-1 pitch with the bases loaded in the fourth inning to give the Cubs a 6-1 lead. He also wasn't bad on the mound either. Wood gave up just two earned runs through six innings on five hits. He earned the win for the Cubs who have now won four in a row, including three against their crossto ...

Samardzija leads Cubs to win in crosstown opener

The Cubs (20-30) edged out the White Sox (24-25) 7-0 with solid pitching and a team batting effort. The two Chicago teams met on the south side for the first game in a four game Crosstown Classic series. Cubs pitcher Jeff Samardzija (3-6, 2.85 ERA) simply dominated in the win. The White Sox only put together two hits against the Cubs' hard-throwing right-hander, and he only allowed one scoring chance for th ...

#CrosstownClassic takes to Twitter

In anticipation of this week’s Crosstown Classic games, the Cubs and Sox took the smack talk to Twitter—       I love that both teams can have fun with the match up, because when you think about it, these games don’t really mean anything for either team’s overall season—its solo purpose is bragging rights (and higher ticket sales). As social media has become more apart of the modern baseball exper ...

The 2013 All-Chicago Team

Its that time of year. The Crosstown Classic, the most exciting time of the baseball season. Okay, not exactly, but its fun to watch the rivals play against each other. However, both teams have struggled this season, with the White Sox posting only a slightly better record than the Cubs. Despite the struggles, both teams have had players that have stood out at their respective positions. So, without further ...
