CHC Thread | Javy to Arizona to Rehab | LAD (Bolsinger) @ CHC (Hendricks) - The Sad Banana
Lots of good news to share. First, the Cubs are 39-30. That's the first time they've been 9 games better than .500 since 2009. When is the last time we can remember them being .500 at all other than Opening Day? Tsuyoshi Wada threw yesterday with minimal pain, so he may not miss a start. Dexte...

Pitch Perfect 2 was just okay...(NO SPOILERS) - The Sad Banana
First off, I'm an unabashed lover and enthusiast of Pitch Perfect. I thought it was a great original idea and it was executed perfectly. The music, the singing, the comedy...it was a pretty solid, hooking and addictive movie. I saw the original at least a thousand times on HBO. It figures they'd ...

[img]http://sports.cbsimg.net/images/visual/whatshot/kyle-schwarber-3515.jpg[/img] [i](BEEFCAKE)[/i] Yesterday's game was rained out. That always sucks. Yesterday's starters get pushed to today. The big news is that Kyle Schwarber will be called up to DH and hopefully play some catcher for th...

CHC Thread | Cubs draft Ian Happ, Donnie Dewees | CHC (Lester) @ DET (Sanchez) - The Sad Banana
The Cubs nailed it in the first two rounds last night, apparently. From what I have read, this isn't a 2013 franchise-changing draft. But it's a good one so far. [b]OF/IF Ian Happ | Cincinnati[/b] [img]http://a2.fssta.com/content/dam/fsdigital/RSN/Ohio/2015/2/10/021015-fso-cbb-ian-happ-PI.vada...

CHC Thread | Javy Breaks a Finger | Off Day - The Sad Banana
It really looked like Javy Baez was making tremendous strides at Iowa (.314/.386/.536/.922 8 HR, 7 2B, 11 BB and 40 K) while transitioning over to 3B. His callup to Chicago was going to be imminent--if not this two game set against Detroit, he'd probably be called up to start the road interleague tr...

CHC Thread | Kyle Schwarber is Good | CHC (Hammel) @ MIA (Urena) - The Sad Banana
If, at the beginning of this season, I were to tell you by June 1 the Cubs would be above .500 would you have believed me? If I am being totally honest, I would say I would expect them to be hovering around that mark, mostly likely 3-5 games below .500. But the Cubs are 26-22 and in second place, 6....

CHC Thread | Memorial Day Baseball | WAS (Roark) vs. CHC (Wada) - The Sad Banana
The Cubs finished the road trip 3-3. The Dbacks series was a kick in the pants and the Nats are very hot--it doesn't get easier. Javy Baez is mashing right now as he hit 2 dongs yesterday. His K rate is around 24% and his BB is close to 9% since returning to Iowa. If this keeps up the Cubs are go...

CHC Thread | Off-day Monday | What to do with Javier Baez? - The Sad Banana
Yesterday, Javy Baez was removed from his game with Iowa early (as part of a double switch...he was 0 for 3 with 2 K) and all of Twitter went nuts speculating (wrongly) about a call up. Personally, I don't think Javy Baez is ready to be called up to the Cubs. I want him to be a part of the Cubs a...

CHC Thread | Three in a Row | NYM (Niese) vs. CHC (Wood) - The Sad Banana
[img]https://pbs.twimg.com/media/CE-TS1oVEAAV6pR.jpg[/img] I think it's about time we make this a mini Anthony Rizzo sploosh emporium. He's just really good at baseball. Last night he got on base three more times and continues to be the anchor of the lineup: .333/.463/.598/1.061/189 with 7 HR, 19...

CHC Thread | Bryant Heating Up | NYM (Harvey) @ CHC (Hammel) - The Sad Banana
Last night Kris Bryant showed why he's the apple (not Appel) of my eye. He went 3 for 4 with a triple, infield single (!!!) and a long solo HR as the Cubs won 6-1. The HR was mammoth and it was majestic, but that's easy for Bryant. What's the most impressive thing about him is his baseball IQ and ef...

CHC Thread | Bryant, Rizzo Bombs | NYM (Syndergaard) vs. Cubs (Arrieta) - The Sad Banana
The Mets' big pitching prospect Noah Syndergaard makes his debut tonight against the Cubs. Over the weekend, the Cubs dropped two of three from the Brewers of all teams in a very crappy, very meh series. I was at the game on Sunday and there are no interesting pics, no exciting stories, not much to ...

[img]https://pbs.twimg.com/media/CEaXlSZVAAAYG9o.jpg[/img] Last night's game gave me a heart murmur. The Cubs would do well getting a split here with such a good Cardinals team. They can hopefully head to Milwaukee with that momentum... On a side note, I'll be in Milwaukee on Sunday for the la...

CHC Thread | Bryant Moves Up; Roster Moves | CHC (Hendricks) @ STL (Lyons) - The Sad Banana
[img]https://pbs.twimg.com/media/CERKyy0WYAAP-3R.jpg[/img] The Cubs move Kris Bryant up in the lineup to third, sandwiched behind RizzOBP and Soler. I'd much rather Rizzo hit behind Bryant...meaning move Rizzo to 4th, if they were intent on moving Bryant up to 3rd. In all honestly, Bryant warrant...
