Cubs Trade Russell and Speedy Neifi to Braves

Yesteday, the Cubs acquired LHP Felix Doubront for a player to be named later from the Boston Red Sox. A trade that I like a whole lot presuming the PTBNL isn't much and considering Doubront's ability to strikeout many hitters. A move to the NL Central certainly won't hurt his numbers either. Today, the deadline has been rocking and the Cubs big moves were out of the...

Fan Goes To Wrigley Field With Incredible Chicago Cubs Mohawk (Photo)

It’s not easy being a fan of the Chicago Cubs, so it takes some creativity to be enthusiastic about going to the ballpark every night. One fan showed up to Tuesday night’s game against the Colorado Rockies sporting an unbelievable mohawk haircut. Not only is it one of the tallest mohawks you’ll ever see — we’re guessing it has to be at least 20 inches — the Cubs’ colors...

A Cubs Catcher Pitched A Scoreless Inning To Win The Longest Game In Cubs History

Your browser does not support iframes. A game which lasts a whopping six and a half hours will feature some oddities. The biggest one of all may be seeing catcher John Baker show up in the pitching stat sheet. Baker, the backup catcher for the Cubs, had to come onto the mound in relief duty in the sixteenth inning of what turned into an early Wednesday morning game against the Colorado...

Granted, he probably impeded the view of everyone behind him when he turned his head to the left or right but at least they’d be...

Why Was The Incredible Hulk At The Cubs Game Last Night?

WGN I think it’s awfully unprofessional of The Hulk to skip out on saving the world to catch foul balls at a Cubs game. Like, aren’t the Avengers waiting for him or something? Isn’t he late to some intergalactic war staged in NYC? The nerve of that guy. And then look at him, hitting on hot chicks and stuff. Bro, this isn’t Hulk-Harmony.com. You’re a goddamn superhero,...

OUCH! Cubs trade Darwin Barney for player to be named

The Chicago Cubs today traded infielder Darwin Barney and a cash consideration to the Los Angeles Dodgers for a player to be named later. OUCH BABE! Remember when he was relevant? When he was possibly considered “a piece” in “the rebuild?” At least defensively, he was thought to be something, Now this is his fate.    The one AAA leader hits once gave Cubs fans such high...

Jack White doesn't look happy to be at Cubs game

The Chicago Cubs added an official mascot, Clark the Cub, this offseason. But we’re pretty sure no one has more accurately summed up the Cub fan experience than rocker Jack White, who took in Tuesday night’s game at Wrigley Field the night before his own show in the Windy City. I believe the dictionary definition for this particular look is “bemused.” And I’m fairly...
