Photo by Quinn Harris/ ... and the Cubs matched their season high with their sixth consecutive win. The last couple of weeks of Cubs baseball have been a tremendous amount of fun. Solid pitching, both starting and relief, and key hits at the right time. After defeating the Reds 2-1 on a brilliantly sunny afternoon at Wrigley Field, the Cubs have won six straight, 10 of their last 11 and 14 of their last 18. In addition, in taking the first five games of this homestand they’ve allowed five runs — total. Sure, the Reds might not be very good but the Cubs pitching...

2022 Cubs Heroes and Goats: Game 157

Photo by Nuccio DiNuzzo/ Another day, another Cubs victory Today I get to do a little tone change over where I’ve been the last few days. That’s because I’m quite simply not surprised that the Cubs took care of business against a Reds team headed for 100 plus losses. After winning three straight from the contending Phillies, I expect big things from the Cubs in this extended series against the Reds to conclude the season. So much so that when the Reds jumped out to a 1-0 lead early, I was surprised. Talk about raising unrealistic expectations. Now I’m here...

Cubs 6, Reds 1: Adrian Sampson and the Cubs juggernaut keep on rolling

Photo by Nuccio DiNuzzo/ Sampson threw another excellent game and the Cubs put together a varied offense for their fifth straight win. The games don’t mean anything other than the Cubs finishing the year strong, but I am certainly growing to like the way the 2022 Chicago Cubs are playing baseball. Adrian Sampson had another outstanding outing and several Cubs had key hits in a pair of three-run innings that were the difference in a 6-1 Cubs victory. The Cubs have won five in a row, nine of their last 10 and 13 of their last 17 — the latter is the best record in the...

Cubs: Signing a superstar shortstop also answers the second base question

Whether or not you’re enamored with Nico Hoerner should have zero bearing in how you feel about the Chicago Cubs going out and signing one of this offseason’s superstar shortstops. There’s no doubt Hoerner has answered the questions that surrounded him heading into 2022, namely defensively, racking up 4.5 bWAR in 128 games. He’s one […] Cubs: Signing a superstar shortstop also answers the second base question - Cubbies Crib - Cubbies Crib - Chicago Cubs News, Rumors, and Fan Community

On The Horizon: Cubs vs. Reds series preview

Photo by Keith Gillett/Icon Sportswire via You will be VERY familiar with the Reds by the time this series ends. The Cubs were supposed to finish the 2022 season at Wrigley Field against the Reds, but the lockout rescheduled quite a few games, including what was to have been the season-opening set in Cincinnati. Those three games will immediately follow the three at Wrigley, so I’m treating this like a six-game series, played in two ballparks. For more on the Reds, here’s Wick Terrell, manager of our SB Nation Reds site Red Reporter. The Cincinnati Reds spent the...

2022 Cubs Heroes and Goats: Game 156

Photo by Jamie Sabau/ The Cubs move to 8-1 over their last nine games with the sweep of the Phillies. There are some times where I think baseball is so predictable and I feel that even if I don’t know exactly what is going to happen, that I have a feeling for largely what will happen. I assure you none of those things that I know or even feel, no hunch, nothing that said that the Cubs would not only sweep this September series from the Phillies, but the entire season series. Granted, the Cubs played very well against the Brewers, winning 10 of 19 games against the...
