CUBS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Despite Perception, Miguel Montero Is the Cubs’ Best Option At Catcher

When a hitter makes really good contact with a pitch, it’s often said that he “barreled it up,” meaning he hit the ball right on the sweet spot of the bat. For the longest time, the only way to judge that was by sight or sound. Then came the measurement of exit velocity, a way to measure exactly how hard a ball was hit. While it’s clear that smashing a ball on the ground...

Dexter Fowler, Near Close of Second Chicago Season, Remains Irreplaceable

You go, we go. That’s the phrase Cubs manager Joe Maddon famously applies to his leadoff hitter, center fielder Dexter Fowler. It means that when Fowler is going well, the Cubs are usually going well too. Of course, it’s very simplistic to whittle something as complex as a 25-man baseball team down to the success of one […]
