The Cubs Scouting Report on Ernie Banks


My favorite Cub of all time.

Verlander on the Cubs?


Could you have imagined that?

Darryl Kile Documentary


This popped up in my Youtube feed last night. I watched this very sad moment in time. I remember it vividly. I was stationed in Korea when it all happened. My coworker was a die-hard Cardinal fan. We butted heads over baseball many times that year but that day was sad for all of us baseball fans.

Kris Bryant (and Astros' Alex Bregman) helped make a fan's dream come true


Bryant, with an assist from Bregman, got to meet up with mega-fan Faith Kuhn, a 12-year-old with spina bifida.

So who knew this. I think John Lackey is a descendent from him. This guy holds the overall record with 59 wins in a season. Not too bad. This post may be a little crued for some. I liked it. It has some good info in it.

Watch Javier Baez steal home. Again.


His fourth career steal of home, if you were keeping track.

Vote Baez to Start in the All Star Game!


Looks like Rizzo and Bryant are lost causes this year but Baez is within striking distance as of the last NL update ( He and Contreras are the best chance the Cubs have now of getting a Cub in the starting lineup.
