Cubs vs. Atlanta: Series Thread (Games 49-51)

The Cubs managed one win in the four game series against Pittsburgh. They come into this series against Atlanta with a record of 26-22, and 1.5 games behind the Brewers. The Cubs activated Dansby Swanson and are expecting Nico Hoerner to return imminently, which ought to boost both the offense and defense. See below for matchups on three-game rematch series as Atlanta now visits Wrigley. 

 

Cubs 2024 Rule 5 Draft and Minor League Free-Agent Watch List

5/21 UPDATE:

The Cubs signed free-agent RHP Trey Supak to a minor league contract.

Because he has been outrighted previously in his career, Supak has the right to elect free-agency (immediately or deferred) if he is selected to the MLB 40-man roster and then is outrighted back to the minors at some point in 2024.
 

Cubs vs. Pirates: Series Thread (Games 45-48)

If you enjoyed the last two series against the Pirates and Atlanta, I have good news--now you can enjoy them at home. The Cubs won the final game in Atlanta to save themselves from a sweep and return to Wrigley 25-19. They'll see the Pirates for four games before a day off on Monday. See below for daily matchups. 

 

Cubs @ Pirates: Series Thread (Games 39-41)

The Cubs enjoyed a day off before beginning a six-game road trip against Pittsburgh and Atlanta. The road trip will be followed by a six-game homestand against the same opponents. So, there will be plenty of opportunity to get familiar. The Cubs will likely even get their first two looks at Pirates phenom Paul Skenes as he debuts in the Saturday away game and would be due again in the home series. The 22-16 Cubs lost two of three to the Padres and fell to a half game behind the Brewers with the day off.

    The Cubs have also won eight of nine starts by Shota Imanaga, including the first seven.

    Damn. Regression to the mean, or whatever it is, sucks at times. 

  • Arizona Phil (view)

    True. The Cubs have lost Steele's last eight starts going back to last September. Prior to that, the Cubs had won nine consecutive games started by Steele. 

  • Eric S (view)

    According to a Cubs podcaster, the Cubs have lost the last eight games that Steele has started. Haven’t checked it but sounds plausible after last year’s September swoon. Whatever. But certainly not a streak I’d ever associate with Steele. Edwin Jackson, yes. Steele? No. 

    Hope that streak, true or not, ends today.

    h.neris has calmed his game a bit after walking the world in april.

    so far in may... 8ip 7h 3bb 5k

    it's not ideal for a closer, but it's not trash.  he walked 11 guys in 10 innings in april.

    m.leiter has been on another planet all year and crazy in may.  his may 7ip 4h 1bb 13k.

    both guys have only given up 1hr all season.

    assad get d.ross'd after 4.2ip...men on the corners...102 pitches thrown (104 his season and career high).

  • crunch (view)

    cubs out here giving away chances at outs with the defense...not the first time this year...too many times this year.

    i understand 2 of the 3 miscues (so far in the 5th) were wind-aided, but still...damn...

    big OF shot on the bleachers and judging by what i'm seeing, about 75%+ of those baseball-bat "mugs" of beer seem to be sold to the bleacher fans.

    ryne sandberg posted his latest scans show no cancer.

    that's good.  that said, you gotta wait a few years to see where you're truly at with something like stage 4 metastatic prostate cancer.  if it didn't metastasize to his bones, he's already got an advantage with the latest news...that area of metastasis seems to be one of the worst signs of survival with this particular cancer.

    he will be monitored for the rest of his life until his age/health dictates it's no longer neccessary.

    good news for now.  hopefully he's one of the slightly better than 1/3rd that survive stage 4 prostate cancer after 5 years.  this news is a great start.
