  • Matt Spiegel: For Baez, the song has just begun Aug 10, 2014 3:57 PM
    Matt Spiegel likes to think of Cubs second baseman Javier Baez as a really exciting new band. He swings as hard as any young punk guitarist thrashes. Time will tell if he can keep it up, and whether he will add the nuance needed to be a more complete hitter. Maybe that guitar player has a decade of mature songs in him he doesn’t even know about yet.

  • Rizzo’s single gives Cubs the win in extras Aug 10, 2014 5:57 PM

  • Cubs front office steps on the accelerator Aug 10, 2014 5:40 PM
    Bob Dylan’s anthem “The Times They Are a-Changin’” would be an appropriate theme song for the current state Chicago Cubs. Roster moves have been coming at a fast and furious pace. While the talent-compiling process had gone on at a rather slow and steady pace, Cubs Insider Len Kasper says it feels like the Cubs have suddenly shifted from second to fifth gear in a snap of their fingers.
