Fangraphs: What The Cubs Must Do


I like how this author has the balls to suggest that the Cubs trade Carlos Marmol. It's an awesome idea, only if the Cubs are able to get a huge prospect in return.

He's also been above average defensively.

Glass Half Full: Cubs 3, Giants 8

BCB Quiz: What do you see in the picture? a) A glass half empty b) A glass half full c) When is it going to spill? That's an old Cub fan joke, and maybe it isn't that funny, especially...

Reinforcements: Cubs 6, Giants 5

Thank heavens, injured and absent Cubs will begin to return today. Aramis Ramirez, in the Dominican Republic the last three days for the birth of a child, will return in time for today's...
