Cubs Rumors: Kyle Schwarber "best hitter" in 2014 draft class

While the Chicago Cubs have yet to put together a team capable of competing into October on the field, they continue to get build the team towards that level in the near future. The Cubs surprised many by passing on taking a pitcher in the first round of the 2014 draft, electing to take catcher Kyle Schwarber instead.

Earlier today, Kiley McDaniel published his consummately researched and demonstrably authoritative prospect list for the Chicago Cubs.

State of the Cubs: Don't take Starlin Castro for granted

The Cubs are in a Catch-22 situation with Starlin Castro. The trade rumors would have intensified if they hadn’t signed him to a long-term extension — seven years, $60 million, club option for 2020 — and he got closer and closer to big paydays in arbitration and free agency. But that deal also looks so reasonable — and an All-Star shortstop is so hard to find — that he...

It’s Time to Forgive Steve Bartman

As Cubs fans everywhere remember what could have been, somewhere a certain Steve Bartman continues to receive death threats. 11 years on, Cubs fans still look longingly as the 2003 Cubs team, a plucky group of players, arguably the most successful since 1945.

After calling up Javier Baez and Jorge Soler late in the season and with super prospect Kris Bryant waiting in the wings, the Chicago Cubs have all of a sudden become the sexy team to bet on to be playing in October the next couple of years.
