Some new apps for your iCubs.

If you're a modern, savvy human, then you gotta keep up with the times.
That means always getting the latest and newest stuff.


Like the iPhone 4 or the iPad 3 from Apple or...the latest version of the iCubs from Des Moines.
You say you can talk to "Siri" on your iPhone?
Big freakin' deal, bud.
Can Siri hit a 500 foot homer?
Can Siri play every position in the outfield?
No.
Those only happen with the iCubs and their latest apps, Anthony Rizzo and Brett Jackson.
In fact, it's the beta version of these two, so you can see them in development. 

Okay, straight talk.
I've been a Cub Fan for what can easily be termed a "Period" (like Jurassic or something).
Never been to Iowa, never seen the iCubs.
I have to think there are a bunch of Cub Fans like me who can't help but notice that some of the better Cub Talent might not be playing in Chicago, and decide to make a trip or two this summer.
They have beer there, right?
(btw, I did this post after trying to get an Iowa Cubs hat online, and finding they're sold out.)

I'll be seeing the iCubs in Round Rock, which is near where I live. Glad they sent Jackson and Rizzo down for more "seasoning". The word was they would be doing that, so I bought me some tickets.

Unfortunately the Cubs have an outdated and very expensive app called Sori.

It looks goods, says the right things but performs like a Commadore 64.

Nice one, jacos.
Watch for that illustration some time this season...

per mlbtr...

Cardinals release Koyie Hill. Somehow Westbrook, Garcia and Lohse's fastball just lost 5 mph.

cubs/indians on WGN.

Canzler starting in LF and Pie starting in CF for the Cleve.

pie caught napping by g.soto tagging up and taking 2nd on a fly ball out.

kinda hard to anticipate that happening, though...

i hope the "aggressive" cubs continues...only with less guys picked off and caught stealing with throws behind the runner. =p

27 year old Felix Pie

wow, still young

so much for guys busting ass to 1st on popups...real rules meets real world, again. modern baseball...woo.

also, boooooooooo on WGN/cubs for not displaying the radar gun results today.

bottom of the 2nd and they're displaying the gun. neat.

75-80mph sliders and 82-84mph fastballs.

this is a rather crap version of rodrigo lopez...or a badly calibrated gun.

melting down the mike fontenot statue to build one for joe mather

Can we take some time to admire Blake DeWitt's beard? It is beautiful this spring. He's been treating that thing with coconut oil or something.

But it's still got nothing on Mark DeRosa's gorgeous stubble.

free joe mather!

Dave Sappelt is also a sexy mothashutyourmouth.

way to admire that fly out short of the track sori

s.clevenger getting time at 1st...seems welly is due for another year in the minors. not much of a surprise, really....still, he'd be the backup (or starter) or some clubs this season, easy.

He might be the starter for the Cubs within the next 12 months or so if they get an offer they like for Soto.

Sullivan tweets that Sonnanstine opts for free agency rather than take assignment to Iowa.

Mike W. gives a sigh of relief. (so does the Iowa bullpen)

good luck to the team thinking of signing him

fwiw, matt bush released by the rays...not released from jail, though he finally got bail assigned yesterday ($1m).

Oh, never mind.

First trip ever to see I-Cubs this July ... though I also hope that Rizzo and Jackson will be in Chicago by then.

  • so is him actually getting 2 hits in a game (2 doubles!)...first time he's even been on base 2 times in a game since 9 games ago on his 3/4, 1bb day.

    im ready for him to at least look like a 2-slot hitter since he's gonna be slotted there no matter what he does.

  • That Heyward move to avoid Bryant's ball hit at him was a thing of beauty too.

  • 9 pitches in and this game already rules.

    HR, double...bryant's turn (who came out to a Kris Kross song for some horrible, horrible reason).

    ...2 run inning...zoobrest hitting streak at 14.

  • First time I saw Herrera was yesterday. He took like 100 pitches, fouled off a ton off Lester.

    Very nice young player and perfect leadoff guy.

  • Obviously not Phil. But he mentioned this on Wednesday.

    "Dominican Summer League (DSL) Opening Day is Saturday June 4th, so probably about 8-10 pitchers and position players presently at EXST in Mesa will be sent to the Cubs Dominican Academy (probably sometime this week) and be assigned to either DSL Cubs #1 or DSL Cubs #2."

  • Per FanGraphs, Cubs have a 72.5% chance of winning today. Jinx! Next highest percentage on today's games is D-backs with a 64.7% chance (Greinke vs. Cesar Vargas, in Arizona.)

  • Phil, when will the Cubs start moving international players from EST to the Dominican for the start of the DSL season?

  • It was a nice barehand pick-up but he was close enough to 1st where he could underhand the ball to Bryant. The trouble he's had has been with the overhand throw. He's definitely working on it, but I don't know if that play was a good example of progress made.

  • Phil, have you heard anything about the condition of Oscar De La Cruz's elbow? Has there been talk of a time table? Is he throwing?

    K Dub 12 hours 1 min ago view
  • i was distracted for most of the game and also missed the first few innings.

    but yeah, any time he makes a good fielding+throwing play on D it's worthy of praise and a trip to pizza hut for a personal pan pizza and $1 worth of songs on the juke box.

    seriously, i'll take it.

    He's been workin' on the D!

  • Totally agree with that re Soler, whereas Bryant seems to get the close call (so far) this year.

    Good to see Baez get a couple knocks today - been awhile
