Cubs Get Bit Hard By Injury

The Chicago Cubs today announced that both Jason Motte and Jorge Soler would be missing time due to injury today.    The time frame for Soler is not good, he is expected to miss a month, perhaps the rest of the season if things don’t go perfectly for him. While the length Motte might miss is not known, I cannot believe that he will be back quickly either.    Add in that Addison...

The man who closed out the 2011 World Series championship for the St. Louis Cardinals and saved 42 games for them a season later has not pitched in a competitive situation in more than a year, but he might turn out to be one of the most important pitchers on the 2014 team’s staff.

Thinking About Jason Motte

Jason Motte.  What about Jason Motte? He was a late season revelation in 2011 that parlayed his opportunity into 42 saves in 2012.
