A Baseball Fan’s Early Lesson

The Cubs had some good lineups back then. There were plenty of players to cheer for and a number of stars. My favorite players as a kid were the usual cast, I suppose – Ernie Banks, Ron Santo,...

Red Sox blockbuster trade raises questions about Cubs & Epstein

141

The writer makes some valid points, but I disagree with some of the negative comments directed at Theo Epstein. Did anybody realistically expect the Cubs to be in the playoffs this year? However, the Red Sox were expected to be in the playoffs this year. Who's the bigger disappointment? I don't think it's a tough question.

Cubs hope Sandberg gets shot to manage in 2013

My prediction is that he will be promoted to Charlie Manuel's coaching staff as bench coach for 2013 and replace him as manager in 2014.

Theo Epstein=the new Dallas Green?

8

I know that this has been a tough year, but I am an optimist and I believe that better things are on the horizon for the Cubs next year and beyond. It is eerie to me how similar this Cubs team is to the 1982 Cubs. One difference is that I think this team has more talent than they did. But if you read this article where Dallas Green talks about the farm system in 1983, it is amazing to me how similar he sounds to Theo Epstein.

Geovany Soto Likely Traded

2

Shortly after Reed Johnson's departure from the dugout, Soto said his farewells to the team, too. No word yet where he's going, or the return, but it's believed to be a separate deal than the Reed Johnson trade. Also worth noting, Tgers’ Low-A starting pitcher Thomas Collier was just pulled from his start after going three innings. Though Collier has pitched well this year, you'd hope for a better return for a former Rookie of the Year.

Padilla article on Barney

11

I've been a fan of Barney since his breakout spring last year. Nice to see him not only quieting some of the critics this year, but getting notice for his on-the-field contributions, and for his work ethic. He may not be an all-star, but I think he's a great addition to the team.

Video I took during yesterday's rain delay. The amount of wind and rain coming down was crazy. This video doesn't really do it justice.

Interview w/ Cubs GM Dallas Green May 4, 1985

I found this on Google Archives. I think you'll find Green's answer to the question of whether or not he expected the Cubs to win in five years to be interesting. Sounds a lot like Theo Epstein talking about the current Cubs.

I had no idea the Cubs were on Tumblr! They post some nice photos and other cool stuff. Check it out. (P.S. If this is old news, let me know and I will delete this FanShot)
