It's time for the 2013 Alternative Recaps to make their season debut.
Thursday afternoon's game threads are all right here.
You've heard this one before. But please, dear reader, delve inside for the not-so-nice details.
A former Cub is now a Red Sock (I'm running with this as the singular form) and he's talking about time in Chicago. Could a current Sock be in Cubbie Blue next year? Be honest: that's more interesting than talking about the current team.
Great starting pitching in the upper minors today. Not nearly as good was the starting pitching in A ball, although Kane County did get some excellent relief pitching. Just not excellent enough.
Here you can see all the Cubs' plans for Wrigley Field and the surrounding area. Tom Ricketts said the club might have to "consider" moving if they don't get all of this. Do you believe him?
Albert Almora made a successful season debut in Kane County with three hits. The rest of the team didn't match his performance. Daytona won their sixth game out of seven but Iowa fell to Las Vegas.
Should the Cubs keep Matt Garza around as they try to return to contention? Or trade him for prospects? You make the call.
Could the Cubs have won Tuesday night's game with better relief work? Yes, and part of that is on manager Dale Sveum's choices.
Alex Sanabia has a little something extra in his repertoire these days. The Don Mattingly Watch continues. A Phillies broadcaster sabotaged Aroldis Chapman. The Twins finally have a strikeout pitcher. The city of Montreal remembers one of its greats.
Iowa swept a double-header thanks to Brian Bogusevic. Tennessee loses in extras and Daytona wins in extras.
How can the Cubs tap the potential of their players and their organization? Cub Tracks looks at some ideas.
Albert Almora has finished his rehab and will start the season in Kane County. The Smokies split a double-header and the D-Cubs and Cougars have disappointing losses.
Think the Cubs are having a rough season? It's nothing compared to what's going on in Houston and Miami.
