Before we jump into the rest of Cub Tracks I wanted to take a moment to share a more personal link. As you know, our fellow writer Duane Pesice who normally runs this column has been sidelined due to illness. His friends have been helping take care of his feline companions while he’s away, but they’ve set up a GoFundMe to help mitigate the costs of their care in Duane’s absence.

David Ortiz, the Chicago Cubs and a historic day at Wrigley Field

June 10, 2005. This marked the first time ever the Boston Red Sox played a game against the Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field. The two teams had not played each other since the 1918 World Series when Babe Ruth shut down the Cubs, leading the Red Sox to a championship. While the Cubs made the corner […] David Ortiz, the Chicago Cubs and a historic day at Wrigley Field - Cubbies Crib - Cubbies Crib - Chicago Cubs News, Rumors, and Fan Community

Chicago Cubs: 3 decisions from 2021 that went up in smoke

It doesn’t take a genius to know the 2021 season didn’t play out in the fairy tale fashion the Chicago Cubs – or their fans – had hoped for.

There are plenty of culprits […] Chicago Cubs: 3 decisions from 2021 that went up in smoke - Cubbies Crib - Cubbies Crib - Chicago Cubs News, Rumors, and Fan Community

Cubs: David Ortiz headed to Hall of Fame, Sammy Sosa falls short

While the lockout in baseball continues, the BBWAA soldiered on with the official reveal of the Hall of Fame class of 2022 happening today. Once more, as expected, Chicago Cubs superstar Sammy Sosa fell well short of the 75 percent needed to make it into Cooperstown, marking the end of his 10-year campaign to make […] Cubs: David Ortiz headed to Hall of Fame, Sammy Sosa falls short - Cubbies Crib - Cubbies Crib - Chicago Cubs News, Rumors, and Fan Community

Cubs: New free agent rankings leave us asking ‘what might have been’

Opening Day this year will feel wildly different than any we’ve experienced in some time as Cubs fans. You’ll see the Kris Bryant, Anthony Rizzo and Javier Baez jerseys in the seats – but odds are, all three will be opening the season in their respective new homes. Baez already has a new team, the […] Cubs: New free agent rankings leave us asking ‘what might have been’ - Cubbies Crib - Cubbies Crib - Chicago Cubs News, Rumors, and Fan Community

Cubs will look for experienced relievers once the lockout ends

There are plenty of directions Jed Hoyer and the Chicago Cubs could go once the lockout ends – regardless of whether that happens in January or June (let’s hope it’s not the latter). But, according to Russell Dorsey of the Chicago Sun-Times, the bullpen will be the team’s area of focus when the offseason resumes. That […] Cubs will look for experienced relievers once the lockout ends - Cubbies Crib - Cubbies Crib - Chicago Cubs News, Rumors, and Fan Community

Chicago Cubs: Remembering 2008 as the year of Kosuke Fukudome

I graduated high school the same year Kosuke Fukudome made his debut for the Chicago Cubs. Lauded as one of the top free agents that year, Fukudome landed with the Cubs after a battle for his services ensued, which reportedly included the San Diego Padres and crosstown-rival Chicago White Sox. Fukudome is an enigma in […] Chicago Cubs: Remembering 2008 as the year of Kosuke Fukudome - Cubbies Crib - Cubbies Crib - Chicago Cubs News, Rumors, and Fan Community

Photo by Jim McIsaac/ The latest in our long-running series of #Cubs-related news articles. #MLB, #MiLB, too. This edition is feeling Hall of Fame-ish. It’s going to be a big day... or perhaps a not-so-big day for the 2022 Hall of Fame candidates. Later today (Tuesday, January 25) the tallied votes will be revealed, and we will find out who (if anyone) has made it into this year’s class of the Cooperstown Baseball Hall of Fame. This is Cubs-worthy primarily because it’s Sammy Sosa’s final year on the ballot and it seems distinctly unlikely he’s going to make...
