The Cubs have been attached to a lot of names in the trade market this season. The rumors have been mainly revolving around pitchers; specifically, lefty relief pitchers; even more specifically, New York Yankees lefty relief pitchers.

Why the Chicago Cubs shouldn’t trade Kyle Schwarber

Kyle Schwarber was a major reason the Cubs made it all the way to the National League Championship Series last year.

The Cubs’ Bert Campaneris, Revisited

The last time we had this Bert Campaneris poll, Chicago Cubs fans (and whoever else happened upon our neck of the internet) voted overwhelmingly for super-utility guru Javier Baez, who received 56% of the vote.  This is certainly deserved, as Javy has been involved in some of the most spectacular defensive plays in recent memory: Having multiple guys with decent bats who can...

Could Cubs be Better off Moving Jason Hammel to the Bullpen?

The news that the Cubs sent Adam Warren to Iowa to stretch out for spot starts wasn’t exactly a surprise.  Warren has been going through some struggles, so sending him to a low stress environment to work through those issues while stretching out to serve in a spot starter’s role could help him get back on track.  For the moment, the plan is to get him a spot start before the...
