In baseball news: Justin Masterson, Rick Porcello, Wade Miley. All names we're either familiar with or should soon be familiar with considering these young pitchers have just been added to the Boston Red Sox rotation in what can best be described as a bulky move made to offset the fact that the Red Sox Nation lost pitching ace Jon Lester in an all out bidding war to the Chicago Cubs earlier this week to the tune of six years and $155 million. With the addition of these three young men to our staff, the question remains: do we need an ace in the starting rotation, and if so, who will be the likely candidate? Jeff Samardzija, Cole Hammel or Max Sherzer? With the Front office having made known the fact that they have no interest in Sherzer, that would leave either Samardzija or Hammel. If I were a gambling man, I would place my money on both men and begin molding an already bulging roster into the type of World Series team the Red Sox Nation have become accustomed to seeing in recent years. The talent is the ...
Well if you're strictly a Redsox fan. it is a very disappointing night. Jon Lester is going to the Chicago Cubs. If you are a Baseball as well as Redsox fan. this is still a pretty good night. Sox fans that are baseball fans have kindred spirit with Cub fans. If you're also a Lester fan... even better. Because Jon Lester's story is amazing. Early in his career he was diagnosed with Lymphoma... and just staying alive was his main concern. Yet after 1 year off for treatment he came back to have a great career and win 2 World Series as a Redsox. Now he as a chance to bring a World Series ring to another storied franchised that seems to be under curse. They haven't won a World Series since 1908. The last time they played in one since 1945. They are oldest sports franchise in America still in their city of origin. One of the only two remaining charter members of the National League, the other being the Braves.

I would like to ask all of my friends who are Chicago Cub fan some questions. Every one of you was happy as *** when they hired Dusty( we trusty) Baker. He had a history of being a winning mgr before he became Cub manager. He had success while with the Cubs in which he led the team to the 2003 NL championship. That's the year in which ALL the Cubs fans blamed him with so many stupid, silly excuses such the Bartman situation in which( GET THIS!!) they say if he would have walked to the mound and calmed a dominant pitcher(Pryor) down along with the entire infield, they would have been in the World Series. Never mind a Gold Glove shortstop booted the next play or Bartman himself received death threats because of 100 or more years of failure from a franchise fan base. Anyway, cub fans ran Baker out of town even though he has been more successful than the ENTIRE org in his career. Then, the Chicago Cubs hire another winning manager in Lou Pinella who also has had more success in his career than the org in the ...

This week's MLB games that are key match-ups: After a very interesting weekend of baseball, the Major League Baseball season rolls along as teams continue to jockey for position on their march towards the playoffs. Here's a look at the more interesting match-ups in the early portion for this week: 1. Chicago Cubs vs Cincinnati Reds: As mentioned in our preview of the Cubs vs Orioles series this past weekend, it got really ugly for Baltimore as the Cubs magnified the glaring holes for the O’s. The Cubs will leave the “Friendly Confines” and go down to southwest Ohio where they are scheduled to face Reds’ pitching ace, Johnny Cueto. The Reds will try to make a late push of sorts for the NL Central, but their offense, even their base running, has been in a rut in the last couple of months or so. Both teams’ pitching staffs are evenly matched, but the deciding factor might be the Reds’ defense which ranks among the elite at the moment. 2. Miami Marlins vs Los Angeles Angels: After a tough match-up ...
And now it's time for... Boning Up on Baseball The 1906 Chicago Cubs went 116-36. They posted a win percentage of .763 -the best season PCT in baseball history. The team ERA was 1.76. Incredible. They had four starting pitchers with 17 wins or more. Mordecai Brown went 26-6 and still holds the NL single season ERA record at 1.04. Their offense defined consistency. Aggressive running, solid hitting and small ball with the threat of deep ball. Player manager Frank Chance led-off with a .419 OBP. He stole 56 bags in '06 just ahead of the high speed EL train batting after him, Johnny Evers, who stole 49 bags. These two set the table for the Vienna all beef meaty lineup- Johnny Kling, Wildfire Schulte and Harry Stienfelds. These guys had a combined batting average of .333, RBI’s galore and swagger to hit the longball before it was a thing. And they made it to the World Series and lost in an enormous upset to the cross town rival White Sox.

So this kid in my class swore the Chicago Cubs won the World Series in 2006...lol what?
Willie Hernández originally signed by the Philadelphia Phillies as an amateur free agent pitcher in 1973 out of Aguada, Puerto Rico. After three seasons with the Phillies, he was selected by the Chicago Cubs in the 1976 Rule 5 Draft. Before to the 1984 season, Hernández was traded to the Detroit Tigers. That season he had a 9–3 record, 32 saves, a 1.92 ERA in 140 innings pitched and recording 112 strikeouts. In the entire season, Hernandez gave up only 6 home runs, 30 runs, 36 walks, and 96 hits. In this amazing season Willie had 32 saves in 33 appearances. The Tigers finished with 104 wins and 58 loses that season, and went on to sweep the KC Royals lead by George Brett, Frank White, Willie Wilson and Dan Quisenberry in the American League Championship Series and defeat Tony Gwynn’s, San Diego Padres in the 1984 World Series, (four games to one). Hernandez pitched five innings in the series, had two saves, and gave up only one run. The 1984 season became historical for Major League Baseball and Lat ...

Something to think about. Wrigley Field - home to the Chicago Cubs - celebrates its 100th birthday this year. So many fans love this ballpark. However, the Cubs have never won a World Series in the 100 years playing in this park. Time for a new venue???
Today in Georgia History Greg Maddux April 14, 1966 - Atlanta His teammates called him “Mad Dog” or “Professor.” We can’t say what opposing batters called him. He was unhittable, one of the best pitchers in Major League history. Greg Maddux was born in San Angelo, Texas, in 1966. Drafted by the Chicago Cubs, he struggled after making his Major League debut in 1986, so he adjusted his mechanics. Lacking a blazing fastball, he studied opposing batters’ tendencies, then dominated them with pinpoint control and off-speed pitches that were virtually impossible to hit. Maddux won his first Cy Young Award as the majors’ best pitcher in 1992. The next year he signed with the Braves and won three more Cy Youngs -- the only pitcher in history to win the award four years in a row. In 11 seasons with the Braves, he led them to 10 division titles and a World Series championship in 1995. He retired with over 3,000 strikeouts and 355 career wins. This Hall of Fame shoo-in was born on April 14, 1966, Today ...
The called shot ( B Bennett, Getty Images ) Legendary player Babe Ruth of the New York Yankees hits a home run in the third game of the World Series against the Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field on October 1, 1932.

The Chicago Cubs are an easy target for critics, what with their not winning a World Series since 1908 and all, but at least during this century of ineptitude for the “Loveable Losers” the members of the team did manage to all wear the same uniforms. That was not the case this afternoon when the […]
Wrigley Field. The 1935 World Series featured the Detroit Tigers and the Chicago Cubs, with the Tigers winning in six games. The Tigers won despite losing the services of first baseman Hank Greenberg. The Cubs had won 21 consecutive games in September (still a record as of 2013), eventually taking the National League pennant by four games over the defending World Series champions, the St. Louis Cardinals.
Congrats to the Chicago Cubs on their first Win!! Beginning of our World Series parade.
I think the Chicago Cubs will finally be good this year, win the central, and win the World Series.
Chicago Cubs, you gave it a great run. Sorry you won't be going to the World Series this year. Better luck in 2015!
Another Opening Day is here! The Chicago White Sox & the Chicago Cubs are in first place! Anything can happen, who know they both can make it to the World Series. Please, Please, Lord don't take me before I can see my Cubbies win a World Series!! Who all is with me?
Opening Day is a special day in America for man, woman, and child. It's the recognition of a national pastime, the bringing together of families, and the chance to start anew, believing that this year will be "The Year." Hope springs eternal. That will be the thought when I wake up tomorrow morning as another year of Chicago Cubs baseball begins. Its been 105 years since the Cubbies last hoisted the World Series. The chances are slim with this group, but there is always a chance that this could be the year, thus hope springs eternal. Go Cubs Go!
Baseball season has started but Opening Day officially starts tomorrow, my Chicago Cubs is ready to make a run at the World Series this year!!!
I am watching this ESPN special on the infamous play between Steve Bartman the Cubs FAN and Moises Alou of the Chicago Cubs. Just unbelievable footage from the 2002 National League Championship Series and how one play can determine an outcome of the series. Even the *** Governor Rod Blagojevich, at the time jumped on the bandwagon of lynching Bartman.
