Cubs News: Victor Caratini is more valuable on this team than off

The Chicago Cubs’ backup catcher Victor Caratini is more valuable on this team than as a trade chip. As the Chicago Cubs head into the offseason, a lot of the talk has been about who is staying and who is leaving the team. Most notably, Kris Bryant feels likely to leave by next year’s deadline at […] Cubs News: Victor Caratini is more valuable on this team than off - Cubbies Crib - Cubbies Crib - Chicago Cubs News and Fan Community

Photo by Chris Williams/Icon Sportswire via Cubs and MLB news If you read the lowbrow and monobrow ‘papers’, Kris Bryant, Javier Baez and Kyle Schwarber are already gone, and Yu Darvish is right on their heels. We try for at least middlebrow, where we consider such options, but fail to set the team on fire, too. C’est plus ca change, c’est plus ca blah blah blah. Book me a passage to Bangkok, and don’t step on the grass, Sam. No rush. Here at Cub Tracks News and Notes, we are winding up the fifth year of the reign under Duane (and closing in on the eighth anniversary overall)...

Cubs News: MLBTR predicts Kris Bryant won’t get a raise in arbitration

A horrendous 2020 season from Kris Bryant could actually benefit the Cubs. This offseason, likely even more so than the last few, will be heavily dictated by financial limitations. That rings true not only for the Chicago Cubs, but across Major League Baseball. We could be looking at an unprecedented number of non-tenders in early […] Cubs News: MLBTR predicts Kris Bryant won’t get a raise in arbitration - Cubbies Crib - Cubbies Crib - Chicago Cubs News and Fan Community

Cubs News: Justin Turner an option if they deal Kris Bryant

It remains to be seen whether the Chicago Cubs will try to trade former MVP Kris Bryant and the value Bryant might have on the market. Kris Bryant cemented his place in Chicago Cubs lore almost as soon as he came to the major leagues in 2015. The former No. 2 overall pick won National League […] Cubs News: Justin Turner an option if they deal Kris Bryant - Cubbies Crib - Cubbies Crib - Chicago Cubs News and Fan Community

Chicago Cubs Rumors: Are they trading Kris Bryant?

Are they trading the Chicago Cubs Kris Bryant? No one knows, but it seems likely they will. Do you feel good about that or no? It seems like the Chicago Cubs will trade Kris Bryant within the next couple of months–unless they sign him to an extension–which is highly unlikely. Or they could hold on […] Chicago Cubs Rumors: Are they trading Kris Bryant? - Cubbies Crib - Cubbies Crib - Chicago Cubs News and Fan Community

Chicago Cubs News: Looking at key Cubs who will be free agents

While core players like the Cubs’ Bryant and Baez still have a year left of control before hitting free agency, this winter will have some notable guys on the market from the 2020 squad. Let’s face it; most people are talking about Kris Bryant and Javier Baez in terms of an uncertain future more than […] Chicago Cubs News: Looking at key Cubs who will be free agents - Cubbies Crib - Cubbies Crib - Chicago Cubs News and Fan Community

Chicago Cubs News: The core could be gone before you know it

It’s true. The Chicago Cubs ‘core’ might be gone. One last hurrah is gone by the wayside, and it’s time to dismantle it. The Chicago Cubs’ Javier Baez, Anthony Rizzo, Kyle Schwarber and Kris Bryant have one year remaining on their contracts. But what if they trade some–or all of them?

Kris Bryant and Hall of Famer Greg Maddux joined each other for a Skype session to talk about Greg’s baseball memories, David Ross, Michael Jordan’s short-lived baseball aspirations, and at one point there might have been some pranking. Thanks to Red Bull for setting up the call and sharing these fun results with us. Does Maddux remember facing David Ross [VIDEO]? Your browser does not support HTML5...

Cubs Wild Card Series Game 2 lineup: David Ross doesn’t change a thing from Thursday’s rainout

Photo by Nuccio DiNuzzo/MLB Photos via It’s the same lineup we would have seen yesterday. Cubs manager David Ross, given an extra 24 hours to think about possibly changing the lineup he posted for Game 2, did not do that after yesterday’s rainout. Here’s today’s lineup: A Friday matinee at Wrigley Field. #FlyTheW pic.twitter.com/zCacYyTWKW— Chicago Cubs (@Cubs) October 2, 2020 I do find it interesting that Kris Bryant, who batted lower than third just three times this season, will hit fifth for Game 2, with Willson Contreras and Kyle Schwarber ahead of him.

Dennis Wierzbicki-USA TODAY Sports The postseason is here! A look at today's Cubs game, plus info on the other early afternoon contests. You might remember some of the promotional things Kris Bryant has done with Red Bull. We’ve covered a number of those promotions. Among them: KB hitting baseballs into the Chicago River, KB posing as a pizza delivery driver, KB teaming up with Sluggers for a new batting cage. Why am I telling you this today? Because the Red Bull folks were kind enough to give me a rooftop ticket for today’s game. It’s on this rooftop, one of the few not owned by...

Chicago Cubs News: Please sir, can I have some more?

The Chicago Cubs were worried about a Kris Bryant $300 million deal. That’s not going to happen, so its best to leave them together for a bit. The Chicago Cubs were having ‘One Last Dance’–at least that’s what they were thinking. But that’s not the case.

The Postseason Wildcard Round is basically March Madness but with baseball

Kris Bryant rounds the bases after a solo home run in the second inning - notice the chains, people. | Dennis Wierzbicki-USA TODAY Sports No one has ever experienced playoff baseball like this. When the sports world ground to a halt in March we were days away from NCAA brackets being released and one of spring’s great rituals: March Madness. I have no idea how they measure this and I imagine it’s apocryphal, but each year I read that the first Thursday and Friday of the tournament is one of the least productive work days in the United States. Why? Because from morning until bedtime...
