Feeling frustrated by yet another horrible Edwin Jackson start? This is the place for you!

Giants 8, Cubs 3: Enough Edwin Jackson. Enough.

It's a lot of money, but it really is time for the Cubs to eat Edwin Jackson's contract.

In what will go down as one of the most bizarre games in Cub history, Tsuyoshi Wada takes the Superhero award on Tuesday night, primarily because voting for the grounds crew is not allowed.

574

It's been said that if you watch enough baseball games, sooner or later you'll see something you've never seen before. That happened Tuesday night at Wrigley Field... and I hope to never see that...

Cubs Heroes and Goats: Game 121

16

The first three innings for Travis Wood were really good. Then came the fourth.

Mets 3, Cubs 2: One Bad Pitch

153

You could have turned this one off after the fourth inning and not really missed anything.

Cubs Heroes and Goats: Game 120

25

Edwin Jackson started. Not much else needs to be said.

Brewers 6, Cubs 2: A Whiff And Air Show

176

While the Cubs were striking out in huge numbers, a more entertaining show went on in the air above Wrigley Field.

12

Tsuyoshi Wada follows up the strong performance by Kyle Hendricks on Tuesday night with one of his own on Wednesday night.

In addition to great pitching, the Cubs won this one in large part because of two players who will be a big part of the team's return to respectability and contention.

54

760

Now THAT is the way I'd like to see the game played every day!

Cubs Heroes and Goats: Game 117

8

On a night with few opportunities to make anything happen, all it takes is one hit to take the top of the Hero podium. And the hit doesn't even have to leave the yard.

Brewers 3, Cubs 1: Throwback

676

The game wasn't a throwback; that was Sunday. Something else was thrown back Monday evening at Wrigley that made news.

13

After a hiatus of a month and a half, Travis Wood finally finds his way back to the top of the Hero podium with his performance on Sunday afternoon.

251

That was entertaining and a satisfying win, and you can't ask for much more from a single baseball game.

Rays 4, Cubs 0: Snoozefest

164

This dull game didn't have much to recommend it. However, here is a recap anyway.
