Posted on December 22, 2017, by Bryan Zarpentine After a slight delay, the baseball hot stove is finally starting to heat up. It seems likely that the next domino to fall will be starting pitcher Yu Darvish. Other than perhaps Jake Arrieta, Darvish is considered the top starter on the free agent market this winter. […]

Posted on December 15, 2017, by Bryan Zarpentine The Houston Astros managed to win the 2017 World Series despite a shaky bullpen. If they’re going to repeat as champions in 2018, improvements in the bullpen need to be made, and the Astros are already working hard to make that happen. On Friday, Houston agreed to […]

Posted on December 10, 2017, by Bryan Zarpentine The Chicago Cubs may have found their closer for the 2018 season. The club has reportedly agreed to a deal with free-agent pitcher Brandon Morrow. As of Sunday evening, the Cubs have yet to confirm the deal. However, reports indicate that Morrow and the Cubs have agreed […]

Posted on December 7, 2017, by Bryan Zarpentine With two starting pitchers likely to depart in free agency, the Chicago Cubs have wasted little time in filling one of the vacancies in their starting rotation. The Cubs announced Thursday that they have signed starter Tyler Chatwood. Multiple sources are reporting that Chatwood and the Cubs […]

Posted on November 26, 2017, by Bryan Zarpentine One of the top free agent pitchers on the market this winter is Chicago Cubs ace Jake Arrieta. Other than Yu Darvish, there may be no better starting pitcher available this winter. Arrieta may also be among the first players to sign, especially with the market for […]

Posted on October 19, 2017, by Bryan Zarpentine The Chicago Cubs are still alive. If Game 4 was Jake Arrieta’s last start in front of the Wrigley Field faithful, he certainly went out in style, striking out nine while allowing just one run over 6.2 innings. He managed to cool down a Dodgers lineup that […]

Posted on October 18, 2017, by Bryan Zarpentine After their 6-1 win in Game 3 Tuesday night, the Los Angeles Dodgers are just one game away from reaching the World Series. Yu Darvish out-pitched Kyle Hendricks, allowing the Dodgers to get their bats going and essentially cruise to their sixth straight postseason win. One more […]

Posted on October 17, 2017, by Bryan Zarpentine You can’t say that the NLCS hasn’t been a competitive and compelling series, yet the Los Angeles Dodgers lead 2-0 as the series moves back to Chicago for Game 3 on Tuesday night. The Dodgers have come up with three massive home runs at the right time […]

Posted on October 15, 2017, by Bryan Zarpentine A controversial play at the plate and the sequential ejection of Cubs manager Joe Maddon were the highlights of an intense Game 1 of the NLCS, a game the Dodgers took 5-2. In part because of that play at the plate, the Cubs were unable to hold […]

Posted on October 14, 2017, by Bryan Zarpentine Well, this looks familiar. In a repeat of last year’s NLCS, the Chicago Cubs and Los Angeles Dodgers will battle it out for the right to represent the National League in the World Series. The only difference will be that this time around the Dodgers will have […]

Posted on October 13, 2017, by Bryan Zarpentine Well, the baseball postseason is down to the final four teams. The division round of the playoffs included a lot more offense than any of us expected, but there was no shortage of drama, at least in three of the four series, not to mention the wild-card […]

Posted on October 10, 2017, by Bryan Zarpentine In a good old-fashioned pitchers duel, the Chicago Cubs managed to squeak out a 2-1 win over the Washington Nationals in Game 3 of the NLDS, giving the Cubs a 2-1 series lead. Neither team has woken up offensively in this series, although Anthony Rizzo may be […]

Posted on October 9, 2017, by Bryan Zarpentine For the first time since winning last year’s World Series, the Chicago Cubs will host a playoff game at Wrigley Field on Monday. Fittingly, it’ll be an afternoon game, as the Nationals and Cubs both look to take the lead in the series that is currently tied […]

Posted on October 7, 2017, by Bryan Zarpentine The Chicago Cubs became the first road team to win a game this postseason when they took Game 1 of the NLDS from the Washington Nationals. Despite Stephen Strasburg taking a no-hitter into the sixth inning, the Cubs were eventually able to grind out a few runs. […]

Posted on October 5, 2017, by Bryan Zarpentine The National League Division Series gets underway Friday night when the Chicago Cubs visit the Washington Nationals. Both teams won their division this season, although the Nationals did so with a huge cushion while the Cubs had to sweat it out until the final week of the […]
