  5. Marlins trade Justin Ruggiano to Cubs for Brian Bogusevic

    Dec 12, 2013, 10:47 AM EDT

    Justin Ruggiano

    Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald reports that the Marlins have traded outfielder Justin Ruggiano to the Cubs for outfielder Brian Bogusevic. Ruggiano was pushed into extended action for the Marlins this year and struggled, hitting just .222 with a .694 OPS in 128 games, but if limited to a part-time role he’s capable of…

  6. Cubs interested in trading for Drew Storen or Tyler Clippard

    Dec 9, 2013, 6:29 PM EDT

    The Cubs are one of a handful of clubs without a closer and it appears that they could turn to the trade market to fill the role. According to Gordon Wittenmyer of the Chicago Sun-Times, the Cubs are eying deals for Nationals relievers Drew Storen or Tyler Clippard among other possibilities. Adam Kilgore of the…

  7. Cubs rally late, prevent the Braves from clinching the NL East for at least a little while

    Sep 21, 2013, 7:20 PM EDT

    Travis Wood, Dioner Navarro

    The Braves entered the day with a magic number of one to clinch the NL East and eliminate the Washington Nationals from division title contention. If they could overcome Cubs starter Travis Wood, they could bust out the bubbly at Wrigley, but the Cubs had other ideas. Wood surrendered a run in the fourth on…

  8. And That Happened: Monday’s scores and highlights

    Aug 20, 2013, 6:47 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Dodgers v Miami Marlins

    Marlins 6, Dodgers 2: Jose Fernandez vs. Yasiel Puig in a potential Rookie of the Year matchup. Advantage: Fernandez, who allowed one earned run (two total) in six innings of work with eight strikeouts. He’s 9-5 with a 2.41 ERA and 156 Ks. The Dodgers dropped their second straight. Which hasn’t happened very often lately.…

  9. Ruben Amaro really liked Delmon Young

    Aug 9, 2013, 7:45 PM EDT

    Delmon Young

    Delmon Young was one of the easiest players to dislike in recent Philadelphia sports history. He had a memorable off-the-field incident involving alcohol and anti-Semitic remarks last year, he required weight clauses in his contract as incentive to stay in shape, he has been quite the unproductive player, and his arrival in Philadelphia was a…

  10. Report: Pirates made serious offer for Giancarlo Stanton

    Jul 31, 2013, 8:51 PM EDT

    Giancarlo Stanton

    The Marlins made it clear to everyone that they weren’t interested in trading their star right fielder, but according to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Reviews’s Rob Biertempfel, the Pirates made an offer for Giancarlo Stanton that “caught the attention of the Marlins’ front office” before being rebuffed. With either Gerrit Cole or Jameson Taillon to headline a…

  11. Tigers, Pirates in touch with Cubs

    Jul 31, 2013, 10:28 AM EDT

    Nate Schierholtz

    The Cubs still have pieces on the table after dealing Matt Garza and Alfonso Soriano, and CSNChicago.com’s Patrick Mooney says the Pirates and Tigers have been sniffing around in advance of this afternoon’s trade deadline. The Pirates are most likely interested in Nate Schierholtz to help with their right-field situation. Schierholtz has been a very…

  12. The Cubs are drawing interest for Nate Schierholtz

    Jul 30, 2013, 4:00 PM EDT

    Nate Schierholtz

    Buster Olney says: The Cubs are getting solid interest on Nate Schierholtz, one of the few good hitters on the market. More than likely he gets traded. — Buster Olney (@Buster_ESPN) July 30, 2013   Schierholtz has been one of the least talked about bats at the deadline, but his bat has been a good…

    The defending World Series champs are toast. Madison Bumgarner threw eight scoreless innings, allowing only four hits and striking out seven, but the Giants managed no runs and fell to the Cubs 1-0 on Saturday night at San Francisco’s AT&T Park. Nate Schierholtz, the former Giants outfielder, played the hero for Chicago with his game-winning…

    Tampa Bay Rays' Price pitches against Boston Red Sox  during MLB American League Baseball game in Boston

    Rays 5, Red Sox 1: David Price tossed a one-run, five hit complete game, with a solo homer by Mike Napoli the only real blemish. He needed a mere 97 pitches. That’s what happens when you throw 72 strikes. The Sox and Rays are once again tied in the loss column. Dodgers 8, Blue Jays…

  15. Pirates “studying deals” for Alex Rios, Nate Schierholtz

    Jul 14, 2013, 1:41 PM EDT

    pirates logo

    Phil Rogers of the Chicago Tribune has the scoop: Looking to upgrade in right field, the Pirates are studying deals for Nate Schierholtz and Alex Rios. It is possible that they’ll make a move sooner rather than later, as they are tied for the NL Central lead while last in OPS at the position (slash line…

  16. Play of the Day: the Mets go back to Little League

    Jun 16, 2013, 11:15 PM EDT

    Chicago Cubs v. New York Mets

    Though they came back in grand fashion against Cubs reliever Carlos Marmol, the Mets had staked the Cubs to a 3-0 lead in the fifth after a litany of errors reminiscent of a Little League game. With runners on first and second and two outs in the top of the fifth against Mets starter Jeremy…

  17. Theo Epstein is unhappy with the Cubs’ OBP

    May 26, 2013, 7:50 PM EDT

    Chicago Cubs President of Baseball Operations Theo Epstein speaks at a news conference at Wrigley Field in Chicago

    Cubs President of Baseball Operations Theo Epstein has a number of reasons to be unhappy with his 19-30 club, but the one that really sticks out to him is the club’s lagging on-base percentage, which was under .300 prior to this afternoon’s game against the Reds. At .299, their mark was ahead of only the…

  18. Breathe easy, everyone: Melky Cabrera is going to get his World Series ring

    May 13, 2013, 2:30 PM EDT

    melky cabrera getty

    The Giants’ 2012 World Series win didn’t feature any contributions from Melky Cabrera, but their 2012 regular season sure did. And it’s not going unrecognized: Cabrera will receive his championship ring when the Giants visit the Blue Jays, Cabrera’s new team, on Tuesday. Manager Bruce Bochy performed a similar act last month with Chicago Cubs’…

  19. Cubs survive another Carlos Marmol scare, beat Pirates 3-2

    Apr 4, 2013, 3:35 PM EDT

    Carlos Marmol

    After Carlos Marmol‘s shaky showing got him pulled from a save chance on Opening Day, the Cubs reiterated that he was still their closer. Marmol, though, wasted no time in putting that to the test. Handed another 3-0 lead on Wednesday — thanks to a Nate Schierholtz homer providing two insurance runs in the top…

  21. Report: Cubs “on the fringes” for free agent outfielder Michael Bourn

    Feb 11, 2013, 8:09 PM EDT

    bourn getty

    UPDATE: So much for that. Carrie Muskat, who covers the Cubs for MLB.com, writes that Bourn to the Cubs is “not happening.” Could this be a case of Bourn’s agent, Scott Boras, making a last-ditch effort to create a market for his client? 8:06 PM: There’s been plenty of chatter over the past couple of…

  22. The Yankees are still interested in Scott Hairston

    Dec 28, 2012, 11:03 AM EDT

    Scott Hairston

    In past years I would not make much of an effort to post about the Yankees’ possible interest in role players, but in a world where their failure to land guys like Jeff Keppinger and Nate Schierholtz actually upsets people, this is relevant: The Yankees starting outfield is Brett Gardner, Curtis Granderson and Ichiro Suzuki ……

    Dec 5, 2012, 9:43 PM EDT

    From ESPN’s Jerry Crasnick comes word that the Cubs agreed to a one-year contract on Wednesday night with free agent outfielder Nate Schierholtz. Financial terms of the deal haven’t been disclosed. Schierholtz attracted a pretty strong market after being non-tendered in late November by the Phillies, at one point drawing interest from nine different teams —…

  25. Nate Schierholtz “getting a lot of play” from AL East teams

    Dec 5, 2012, 6:20 PM EDT

    schierhotlz getty

    Pretty steamy headline up there, is it not? ESPN’s Buster Olney reported earlier today that the Yankees were the “early frontrunner” for free agent outfielder Nate Schierholtz. But they may have some competition within their own division. According to Jerry Crasnick of ESPN, the 28-year-old has been “getting a lot of play” from American League…
