CUBS RUMORS & GOSSIP

The Chicago Cubs Should Take a Serious Look at Ron Gardenhire

The Chicago Cubs front office has a plan. Rick Renteria is a part of that plan. His role, you ask? To fill the void in the dugout until a playoff run is imminent. It’s nothing against Renteria, but there’s no way he will be the guy Theo and Jed want guiding the North Siders into contention. Names will emerge, and the first legitimate candidate might just be their man. Ron Gardenhire...

Chicago Cubs: Looking forward to next season

Sunday afternoon marked game number 162 for the Chicago Cubs, and the end of the 2014 season. The Cubs were able to finish the season better than they started as they took two out of three in Milwaukee to avoid another 90 loss season. This was the first time since 2010 that the Cubs have lost less than 90 games. Although the Cubs season may not have resulted in what the organization...

Goodbye WGN

Today, the Chicago Cubs played their final game of the 2014 season. The end of an era. The end of the losing, we hope. The Future looks bright, and 2015 will be the start of change. Not only for the organization, with young and talented players coming up leading the charge, but also with Wrigley Field, and then there will also be a change of broadcasting rights. Today is the last...

Cubs Prospect Claimed Off Waivers

After several years of bouncing between Iowa and Chicago, Chris Rusin will finally be getting his chance to prove himself full time on a major league club. Unfortunately, it won’t be for the Cubs.

Chicago Cubs: Eric Jokisch makes first start

Last night marked the first career major league start for Chicago Cubs prospect Eric Jokisch. Jokisch is not one of the more known prospects of the Cubs, but he is one of the very few pitching prospects that has some potential to stick in the big leagues. Eric Jokisch will compete next season for a spot in the starting rotation. Jokisch has made appearances this season out of the...

Report: Joe Girardi blasted Yanks before Jeter's final game

Cubs Rumors: Chicago should move on from Edwin Jackson

Chicago Cubs starting pitcher Edwin Jackson hasn't had a very good year, and his latest meltdown against the Los Angeles Dodgers last week might be enough to convince the Cubs to part ways from the right-hander. At the very least, he won't be making another start this season as he has been relegated to the bullpen according to a report by Jesse Rodgers of ESPN Chicago.#455729916...

Considering the wealth of talent in the Cubs system it is not small feat to crack the top 5 of that team. Today we take a look at what he has done this year and see if he...

Will the Cubs divest themselves of Edwin Jackson?

One thing the Cubs have a perponderance of is #5-#6-#7-type starters. From Dallas Beeler to Eric Jokisch to Chris Rusin to Travis Wood to Felix Doubront to Justin Turner to Dan Straily the really deep cuts (Yoanner Negrin or Carlos Pimentel, anyone? Dae-Eun Rhee?), the Cubs have plenty of options to plug into the back end of their rotation (of which 2 spots are more-or-less reserved...

Chicago Cubs: Holding out hope for Mike Olt

Mike Olt Mike Olt’s 2014 campaign can truly be described as all-or-nothing.  When he’s not blasting home runs at a prodigious rate, he’s often coming up empty.  Olt’s current home run pace would rank him among baseball’s top power hitters this season had he enough plate appearances to qualify.  Meanwhile, nearly half of every other at bat ends in a strikeout, contributing...

WATCH: Charles Barkley bounces first pitch

Charles Barkley threw out the first pitch at the Chicago Cubs game on Tuesday night.  We’ve seen a lot of god-awful first pitches this year and while this isn’t on par with 50 Cent, it’s still pretty bad for a Hall of Fame athlete.  Barkley’s pitch falls short and wide right. On the bright side though, at least there’s not a horrible hitch like in his golf swing!  So...
