As Willson Contreras and Jason Heyward said goodbye to Cubs fans over the weekend, a group of prospects who may one day fill their shoes looked on.
Trying to sum up the legacy that Jason Heyward will leave behind after seven seasons with the Cubs seems complicated.
But in the grand scheme of things, Heyward’s impact goes far beyond the stats and the dollars.
Jason Heyward's Cubs tenure is soon coming to an end. How should he be remembered for his time on the North Side?
Hello, hello. We're back again on another Monday morning.
The Cubs just got done taking two of three games in St. Louis, which was a good change of pace after they dropped three of four in Pittsburgh. We're now just three days away from July and 36 days away from the trade deadline, so we're about to see the start of trade season and the chaos that comes with it. The Cubs are 17 games under .500, so it would take a lot for this team to be anything other than sellers leading up to the deadline on Aug. 2.
The national speculation on Cubs trade candidates certainly picked up recently, and there's more than a few players who could be wearing jerseys on Aug. 3. That, along with the happenings from the Cubs' seven games this week, gave me plenty to think about. So without further ado, here's the June 27 edition of my Monday morning Cubs thoughts.
The Chicago Cubs took on the New York Yankees Friday Night at Yankee Stadium. The Cubs offense was sluggish but got on the board thanks to a solo homer by Jason Heyward. Wade Miley was only able to go three innings for the Cubs, eventually leaving the game with arm soreness. The game went to extra innings tied at 1-1,…
It takes a lot of buy-in from players for a manager's plan to ultimately succeed.
The Cubs currently own a 7-9 record, they just dropped three of four at home to the Pirates and they now head into road series in Atlanta and Milwaukee before hosting the White Sox and the Dodgers at Wrigley Field. Right now, despite what appears to be complete buy-in by the roster, it hasn't resulted in as much success as Chicago would've liked.
If the Cubs manage to weather the upcoming storm and come out on the other side in solid shape, though, the players buying what David Ross is selling will certainly have played a big part in that.
Hit by pitches turned into an exchange of words between the Cubs and the Brewers on Saturday, another chapter in the rivalry between NL Central foes.
The Cubs’ slogan for 2022 is “It’s Different Here,” and yeah, a lot of the things surrounding the team are different this season. On Opening Day, though, Chicago set out to show it truly is different at Wrigley Field.
