Charles Barkley throws 'turrible' first pitch at Cubs game (Video)

NBA Hall of Famer Charles Barkley threw the ceremonial first pitch before Tuesday night's Chicago Cubs game at Wrigley Field, but probably wishes he could have it back. Barkley threw from the top of the mound, but not only did his pitch come up short, but it went a few feet wide of home plate and bounced past Cubs infielder Anthony Rizzo, who was playing catcher. Barkley said...

Chicago Cubs Shift Their Focus to End 2014

As we enter the death throes of a painful 2014 season, there may yet be reason to watch baseball in Chicago. Teams nearly exclusively play division rivals during the month of September. For some divisions that are already locked up, such as the AL East, AL West, and NL East, this doesnt mean much, but in the NL Wild Card race, this could be huge. With the NL Central, there are two...

Cubs Fan Loses Wedding Ring After Catching Home Run At Wrigley

One fan was lucky enough to catch a Jorge Soler home run during the 7th inning of Tuesday’s Cubs-Reds game at Wrigley. Unfortunately, he wasn’t lucky enough to hold onto his wedding ring while doing so. Apparently, his ring flew off as he was celebrating his new souvenir and landed in the dirt of the warning track, which is something I’m very confident I’ve never seen before...

WATCH: Charles Barkley bounces first pitch

Charles Barkley threw out the first pitch at the Chicago Cubs game on Tuesday night.  We’ve seen a lot of god-awful first pitches this year and while this isn’t on par with 50 Cent, it’s still pretty bad for a Hall of Fame athlete.  Barkley’s pitch falls short and wide right. On the bright side though, at least there’s not a horrible hitch like in his golf swing!  So...

Cubs Rumors: Russell Martin 'perfect fit' for Chicago

The Chicago Cubs are getting closer to becoming a contender. They are starting to see the future now -- Chicago has called up many of their top prospects this September -- and contention does not appear to be too far away. If they have a good offseason, we could possibly be seeing the Cubs in the playoffs as soon as next season.#455204138 / gettyimages.comOne piece that the Cubs...

End of season post-mortem: Chicago Cubs

The Cubs certainly weren’t expected to contend in a loaded NL Central with the Cardinals, Pirates and Reds. The Brewers emerging as a contender through most of the season (before their September collapse) didn’t make matters easier. But at least the Cubs weren’t going to be dead-last, thanks to the D-Backs and Rockies. But thanks to the young talent team president Theo Epstein...

Chicago Cubs: How quickly things change

After finally breaking their seven game losing streak last night with a 6-4 win last night, the Chicago Cubs came out today and looked poised to steal two games in Pittsburgh. The Cubs jumped out to an early 3-0 lead as they were able to get to Edinson Volquez who was extremely wild to begin the game. Jacob Turner was also able to put goose eggs on the board through the first three...

Cubs Injury Update: Anthony Rizzo, Jorge Soler

The Chicago Cubs are without two of their big boppers, but that should change when the Cubs return to Wrigley Field on Monday. The Cubs expect to open their final home stand of 2014 with outfielder Jorge Soler back in the lineup, and they could possibly have first baseman Anthony Rizzo back early in the week as well -- although his return is not guaranteed for Monday.Anthony Rizzo...

Chicago Cubs: Losing streak ended

Finally, the Chicago Cubs felt the taste of victory. It had been over a week since the Cubs have been able to shake hands to celebrate a victory after losing seven straight games. They were able to prevail last night in Pittsburgh and once again get into the win column with a 6-4 victory. If this win is in any way an indication of things to come the rest of the season, the Cubs should...

Cubs Injury Update: Anthony Rizzo, Starlin Castro could both play again

For a while, it appeared that the season had ended early for Chicago Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo, but it appears now that he may get to play again before the season officially does end. The same could hold true for shortstop Starlin Castro. This good news comes via Cubs beat writer Carrie Muskat of ICYMI, #Cubs making progress: Starlin started walking without boot...

Javy Baez Will Be an All-Star

Javy Baez will be an All-Star in this league. Yes, the same Baez that has struck out 41.6% of the times he has stepped in the box. No, I do not buy my cars from Josh Gordon. I’ll admit, it is hard to defend a guy hitting .173 with as many strikeouts as Javy Baez but I’m not ready to call him a bust like some fans are, 37 games into his career. In your best 30 for 30 voice, what...

Cubs Playing Musical Chairs - Affiliates Wait fior the Music to Stop

The Cubs have apparently decided to leave Boise, and so they will now be looking for a new advanced Short Season (SS-A) affiliate in the Northwest League (NWL) to replace the Hawks. Salem-Keizer and Eugene would be the two most-likely locations if the Cubs opt to remain in the NWL, since both have an expiring PDC with their current MLB partner. The Cubs have already renewed their...

Sweet Smell of Successor

The Cubs selected the contracts of LHP Eric Jokisch and C Rafael Lopez from AAA Iowa and added both to their MLB Reserve List (40-man roster) last week. Both players would have been eligible for selection in the December 2014 Rule 5 Draft if they had not been added to an MLB 40-man roster by the November 20th roster-filing deadline, so the Cubs decded to give the two a "...
