JUNIOR LAKE RUMORS & GOSSIP

At least the Rockies aren’t Chicago Cubs bad

For a split second, I thought the game was being played at Coors Field. But that wasn’t actually the case last night when I settled in to watch Rockies baseball “live” from my couch. Instead, the Rockies and Cubs were duking it out in one of the most-iconic venues in all of sports – Chicago’s Wrigley Field. The brick wall behind home plate fooled me; it’s a feature common...

Junior Lake, Mike Olt on bubble if Arismendy Alcantara stays in majors

Arismendy Alcantara might not have looked the part Saturday, but the touted prospect is a player the Cubs want to find a way to keep on the roster when they make a series of moves in the next few days to add pitchers from Class AAA Iowa. Could that mean outfielder Junior Lake and third baseman Mike Olt are on the clock for possible demotions to keep Alcantara in the major leagues...

Chicago Cubs trade rumors: Junior Lake edition

We are just about a year removed from the Major League debut of Junior Lake, and with the way he took the league by storm, no one would have imagined his name would be in trade rumors this July. The goal of this season for Lake was for the front office of the Chicago Cubs to try and figure out if Lake was going to be part of the core moving forward. Lake finished last season very...

Cubs Injury Update: Junior Lake exits after hitting outfield wall

Chicago Cubs center fielder Junior Lake slammed hard into the outfield wall in the top of the second inning at Wrigley Field. He stood up after just a few minutes and laughed it off, but he came out of the game for examination. MLB.com's Carrie Muskat tweeted as the collision occurred.

WATCH: Cubs fan amped up after catch HR ball

Junior Lake had a two homer day on Saturday afternoon at Wrigley in the Cubs’ 5-2 win over the Marlins. After Lake smoked his second homer of the day to left center field, the Cubs fan who caught the ball was juuuust a little pumped up about it. Seriously, look at this guy – taunting the Marlins outfielders, flexing, veins bulging out of his neck…take it down a notch, buddy...

I like him more than you: Junior Lake

It has happened to me five times now. Sitting there, 20+ rounds deep after having watched my peers reach heavily for heavily hyped (deserved in some instances) prospects. Waiting. Then, the time is right, and I find myself pulling the trigger on Chicago Cubs OF Junior Lake. I own Lake in all five of my leagues, and across multiple mock drafts as well. It’s safe to say, I like him...

Chicago Cubs continue to improve little by little

Starlin Castro needs to find that consistency that he had when he first was called up. The Chicago Cubs are one win away from matching their season total from last year.  Twenty-two games remain and it seems very likely that the Cubs will finish with a few more wins than last season. The Cubs aren’t necessarily vastly improved but the club is moving in the right direction.  The...
