Cubs' And Marlins' Benches Clear, And Everyone Immediately Apologizes 

There were no punches thrown in the sixth-inning scrum during last night’s 7-3 Marlins win, and both sides quickly headed back to their own dugouts. In fact, it might have been one of the politest bench-clearings of all time, as the main instigator, Cubs outfielder Junior Lake, apologized unreservedly afterward. Heck,… » 6/04/15 8:50am 6/04/15 8:50am

Starlin Castro Mimics Kris Bryant's Throw, Confuses Anthony Rizzo

Starlin Castro messed around with teammate Kris Bryant on a routine grounder in last night’s game. The shortstop pretended to field the ground ball behind Bryant, who actually fielded it. Aw, they’re in perfect harmony. Castro actually confused first baseman Anthony Rizzo for a second, there. » 5/07/15 12:52pm 5/07/15 12:52pm

Check Out Theo Epstein Lying Shamelessly About Kris Bryant

Kris Bryant will make his debut for the Cubs today, as expected from the moment Chicago sent him to start the season in Iowa. This is due entirely to baseball’s collective bargaining agreement, and while shitty from a player perspective it’s the right thing to do on the business side. Bryant is joining Chicago at the… » 4/17/15 1:00pm 4/17/15 1:00pm

Jon "Doesn't Have The Yips" Lester Airmails Throw To First Base

The Cubs say that the media is making a mountain out of a molehill regarding Jon Lester’s problems throwing over to first base, but all available evidence suggests that the man has the yips. Prior to tonight’s game against the Reds, Lester hadn’t thrown over to first base in 66 games, since 2013. Tonight he (so far)… » 4/13/15 9:41pm 4/13/15 9:41pm

Cubs Postpone Game On Account Of Rain; Rain Doesn't Show Up

After a disastrous opening night that saw fans peeing in cups to avoid enormous lines for the bathroom, the Cubs hauled in portable toilets in an effort to remedy the situation for future games.

"An Absolute Shit Show": Tales From The Wrigley Field Bathroom Lines

Despite the Cubs’ increasingly emphatic insistence otherwise, Wrigley Field was not ready for opening day. Even beyond the expected absence of bleachers, the stadium’s infrastructure was apparently overwhelmed by the gameday crowd, with bathroom lines stretching through the concourse and back out into the stands. » 4/06/15 8:45am 4/06/15 8:45am
