Updated through 8/28/14 - 29 games left for Cubs.
For failing to sign top overall pick Brady Aiken, the Houston Astros will get the 2nd pick in next year's draft on top of their regular pick.

Dale Sveum: "Shit. Shit shit shit. SHIT."
The pitcher's immediate reaction to Soler's 2nd HR is somehow indescribably funny to me ... He didn't know how to react and just kinda puffed out his chest and walked toward home plate. Priceless.
Little guy has some pop! First ML HR batting right-handed.
this team is going to be frightening next year
alcantara joins in on the fun with a HR.
Rizzo must be like - um - get me back on the field.
Cubs fans we might be having a fun decade or so of baseball starting to peek around the corner.
Apparently baseball isn't as difficult as some people make it out to be.
Definitely an encouraging AB for Baez - seemed to have dialed it down just a little bit there ... and still ropes a double.
That reminded me of that old cartoon where the ball is screaming as it flies out of the yard. Good god.
looked like a Mcgwire bomb there
that one was destroyed. both homers tonight were no-doubt HR's in any park.
3-3...with a walk, too.
I'm more impressed that he managed to work the count from 0-2 to 2-2 before lining into the gap
...and baez gives the cubs a 2 run lead.
