  1. And That Happened: Wednesday’s scores and highlights

    Chicago White Sox v Chicago Cubs

    Players who hit multiple home runs in a game are the new inefficiency. Teams should definitely stock up on those guys while they’re undervalued. Cubs 9, White Sox 3: Backup catcher Dioner Navarro smacked three homers — a solo, a two-run and a three-run jack — to pace the Cubbies. A Cubbies team who happen…

  2. Dioner Navarro has hit three home runs today

    Chicago White Sox v Chicago Cubs

    OK, so the White Sox-Cubs game isn’t even over yet, but I had to write something about this. Cubs backup catcher Dioner Navarro, who’s making a rare start in place of Welington Castillo, has homered three times in three at-bats. Navarro walked in his other plate appearance and has driven in a total of six…

  3. A great how-to guide for fans of the 2013 Cubs

    Paul Sullivan of the Tribune makes a great point when he says this year’s Cubs team is “not good enough to capture our attention completely, and not bad enough to ignore totally.” Such is life for most rebuilding teams. But he provides a fantastic service today in telling Cubs fans what they should pay attention…

  4. Cubs blow ninth-inning lead then rally to beat Giants

    Apr 12, 2013, 6:20 PM EDT

    San Francisco Giants v Chicago Cubs

    Starlin Castro homered in the fifth and played hero in the ninth, delivering a game-winning double as the Cubs avoided what would have been an ugly loss and defeated the Giants 4-3. The Giants scored all three of their runs off new Cubs closer Kyuji Fujikawa in the ninth, taking Matt Cain off the hook…

    We’ll be updating this one throughout the offseason. Players are listed based on their ranking in the Top 111 Free Agents. At the bottom is a listing of free agents who signed before the ranking came out, and we’ll be adding signings of players who didn’t make the top 111 as they come in. (Update:…

  6. Cubs sign Dioner Navarro to one-year contract

    navarro warm-up

    I started writing this post assuming the Cubs had signed catcher Dioner Navarro to a minor-league deal, but now Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com reports that it’s actually a major-league deal worth $1.75 million. Navarro is a 28-year-old former All-Star, but not much else about him suggests $1.75 million is a worthwhile investment. He’s hit just…

  8. The Brewers die a very appropriate death

    It has to be over for the Brewers now. They just lost 2-1 to the Reds, dropping them four back in the wild card race pending the outcome of tonight’s games. ┬áIt was a thin hope they had before — probably no real hope — but even the optimists have to jump ship now. The…

  9. Dodgers close to signing Dioner Navarro to one-year contract

    Dec 8, 2010, 5:16 PM EDT

    navarro warm-up

    In a move that would seemingly rule out a return to Los Angeles for Russell Martin and likely send minor-league veteran A.J. Ellis back Triple-A for another season, Tony Jackson of ESPNLA.com reports that the Dodgers are close to signing Dioner Navarro to a one-year deal. Navarro played for the Dodgers in 2005 and part…
