Cubs vs Phillies: Series Thread (Games 77-79

The Cubs return from the UK to take on the Phillies at Wrigley. They'll enter the series 37-39, within striking distance of .500 and only a few games back in an NL Central that appears available to whichever team is hot at the time. The 40-37 Phillies, however, have a much tougher environment and find themselves 10.5 back in the NL East and near the back end of the Wild Card pack. See below for daily matchups.

Game 77, Tuesday, June 27, 7:05 pm central
CHC: TBD
PHL: LHP Ranger Suarez (1-2, 3.50 ERA)

Game 78, Wednesday, June 28, 7:05 pm central

Cubs @ Cardinal: Series Thread (Games 75-76)

The Cubs and Cardinals travel to London to show off the Great American Pastime across the pond. With extra days off to accommodate travel, the Cubs are able to line up their top starting pitchers and hold Drew Smyly for a potential relief appearance. See below for matchupa.



Game 75, Saturday, June 24, 12:10 pm central
CHC: LHP Justin Steele (7-2, 2.71 ERA)
STL: RHP Adam Wainwright (3-1, 5.56 ERA)

Cubs vs Pirates: Series Thread (Games 72-74)

The Cubs ended a five game win streak that despite a valiant effort in the final game of the series against the Orioles. They'll greet the Pirates for a return visit to Wrigley, only a weekend removed from sweeping them out of first place in the NL Central. The Cubs (33-38) enter the series in 4th place and four games behind the now leading Brewers. The Pirates (34-36) may enter with revenge on their mind, if they are not preoccupied by letting their surprising hold on the NL Central slip away. The Buccos bring along former Cub and well-travelled MLB veteran Rich Hill.

Cubs vs. Orioles: Series Thread (Games 69-71)

The Cubs climbed three games in the NL Central standings by sweeping the first-place Pirates. Having forestalled deadline seller status for now, they'll greet the 43-25 soaring O's for another three game set at Wrigley. Bellinger returned already to reinforce the offense, and Steele is expected to make his return to the rotation as well. See below for matchups.



Game 69, Friday, June 16, 1:20 pm central
CHC: RHP Kyle Hendricks (1-2, 3.09 ERA)
BAL: LHP Cole Irvin (1-2, 7.85 ERA)

Cubs vs. Pirates: Series Thread (Games 66-68)

The Cubs ended their trip to San Francisco on a low note despite coming a few outs short of a no-hitter the previous day. They return to Wrigley and NL Central opponents as they take on the 34-30 Pirates. The Pirates have clung to a surprising lead in the NL Central, now leading the Brewers by one game. See below for matchups (such as they stand).


Game 66, Tuesday, June 13, 7:05 pm central

CHC: RHP Jameson Taillon (1-4, 7.02 ERA)

PIT: RHP Luis Ortiz (1-2, 4.23 ERA)


Game 67, Wednesday, June 14, 7:05 pm central 

CHC: TBD

Cubs @ Giants: Series Thread (Games 63-65)

The Cubs were no match for Mike Trout and Shohei Ohtani and suffered a sweep in Anaheim as a result. They'll turn northward and try their luck in San Francisco next. The Giants enter the series 32-30 to the Cubs 26-36. See below for matchups.


Game 63, Friday, June 9, 9:15 pm central

SFG: RHP Anthony DeSclafani (4-5, 3.97 ERA)

CHC: RHP Marcus Stroman (6-4, 2.39 ERA)

Cubs @ Angels: Series Thread (Games 60-62)

The Cubs continue their tour of the West Coast with a stop in Anaheim. The Angels enter the series in third in the NL West, while the Cubs can console themselves that they still have a better record than the Cardinals--and that no one is really out of the NL Central "race" yet. The Cubs will dodge their 2024 Opening Day starter and primary DH question mark, Shohei Ohtani. See below for matchups.


Game 60, Tuesday, June 6, 8:38 pm central

LAA: LHP Tyler Anderson (2-1, 5.47 ERA)

CHC: RHP Hayden Wesneski (2-2, 4.81 ERA)

Cubs Rally Monkey Angels at Diablo

Geuri Lubo (RBI triple), Dilan Granadillo (RBI single), and Jefferson Rojas (RBI single) contributed run scoring hits to highlight a four-run 9th inning, and closer Gabriel Agrazal struck out Cristian Garcia  (swinging) with two outs and the bases loaded in the bottom of the 9th to preserve the lead (and the victory), as the Cubs rallied from an early 6-0 deficit to score three in the 7th and four in the 9th and then held on to edge the Angels 8-7 in Cactus League Extended Spring Training game action Friday evening at Tempe Diablo Stadium in Tempe, AZ.

    it looks like rich hill may not find a 2024 contract even though he wanted to pitch in 2024.

    being a guy turning 44 during spring training coming off a bad season isn't a good look if you don't have a contract by the time spring games start.

    he's played 19 seasons for 13 teams.  his 337.2ip for the cubs is his 2nd highest for any team (361.1ip for the dodgers).  he's the last man standing still playing out of the 2005 cubs crew.  geo soto last played in 2017.

    SD fans are just trying to concentrate on yuki matsui right now.  the rest was terrible all-around.

    matsui K'd 3 with 12 pitches, 1 of them gavin lux.

    Pads gave up 14 runs using 11 pitchers. 3 pitchers gave up all 14 runs during their ***checks notes*** 0.1 IP. Yep, spring training.

    Only thing missing was a position player pitching.

    boras is holding onto 4 "top level" FAs and ST games have officially begun.  montgomery, snell, chapman, and bellinger.

    there seems to be a bunch of teams not willing to blink, but there also seems to be a slew of teams willing to snap up any of these dudes if the price is right.

    at some point it may pivot to front-loaded deals with very early (and probably multiple) opt-outs.

    it's still "cubs advantage" on bellinger because there's a QO hanging over him and none of the teams with money are in heavy need of a CF or 1st.

    ahhh...spring baseball.  put that shit right in my veins.  

    the dodgers are up 8-0 after 2 innings.  joe musgrove pitched to 4 batters and didn't retire any of them...all 4 scored.

    cubs tomorrow afternoon.

    Here is an interesting thought about Boras's negotiation strategy:   Going into the off-season, Boras knew MLB GMs were not convinced of Bellinger's success enough to offer a long-term and large AVV contract.  His strategy was to convince the one team that experienced Bellinger's success that a market was there to take away a beloved player and make the Cubs bid against themselves.  So far, that has not worked and Boras has to scramble to not be embarrassed by a contract much lower than promised. 

    The question is:   What is a scenario in which Boras and Bellinger look good signing a bad contract?  Until that plays out, I suspect Bellinger could go into the season without being signed.

    it's pretty damn stupid.  don't they realize how much stadium-adjacent real estate they could buy for 77m?

    no one cares about baseball talent on the field, it's all about the baseball experience around the field!

    Could be Boras smoke. Could be a team trying to actually improve and win.

    Chicago radio reports that the Yankees are "going after" Snell and Belli.
    They've already made an offer for Snell.
    They want Bellinger for CF if Judge's foot isn't right and at 1B if Rizzo starts to fall off.
    Verdugo/Stanton in LF
    Bellinger/Judge in CF
    Soto/Stanton in RF
    Rizzo/Bellinger at 1B
    Any of them at DH
    That means one of those five guys isn't in the lineup every game.
    If everyone were healthy, I'd imagine Rizzo would be traded eventually.
    Boras' dream scenario right there !!!

    Pirates extend Mitch Keller for 5 years 77 mil. Wow extending your best pitchers for 5 years? What are they, stupid or something?!

    Note: sarcasm
