Cubs Season Preview: Shortstops

  Entering the 2013 season, the face of the Cubs franchise is Starlin Castro. Castro just so happens to play short stop and anyone else in the organization who plays there is out of luck in terms of starting the year there as the every day starter. Castro will be entering his third full season with the Cubs and fourth all together. Last year he had a bit of a down year from 2010 and 2011, where he hit ...

The Cubs Top Fantasy Players in 2013

Unfortunately for Cubs faithful, 2013 doesn’t have the most promising of outlooks. As the rebuilding project continues, us Northsiders need distractions to make the 162-game season seem, well, not as soul-crushingly long. Is ‘soul-crushingly’ even a word? It is now. The good news is that fantasy baseball exists, and is there to help all fans, from the fair-weather to the die-hard, get through another potent ...

STARLIN CASTRO’S PROBLEMS ADD-ING UP

On Monday, Castro committed a critical mental error when he forgot (or didn’t know) how many outs there were and failed to attempt a double-play. The San Francisco Giants' announcers reacted as if Castro had defecated all over a Willie Mays jersey and the internet, including Chicago media ...

2011 Cubs at least enjoyable

I didn't have too many expectations for the Cubs entering 2011, which I might add, was quite refreshing. The past few seasons were a real drag, and 2010 was about as exhausting as any I can remember; a season full of disappointment, where you felt like the team was out of it once they fell behind by one or two runs. While 2011 hasn't been full of success, a 9-9 record the epitome of mediocrity, the Cubs thi ...

Among producing a .300 batting average, he showed spectacular range at times, making some jaw-dropping plays in the field. That said, Cubs fans shouldn't put their city on the soon-to-be 21 year-old's shoulders just yet. ...
