The Chicago Cubs today traded infielder Darwin Barney and a cash consideration to the Los Angeles Dodgers for a player to be named later. OUCH BABE! Remember when he was relevant?

Throw Me A Bonifacio

Emilio Bonifacio was activated from the disabled list last week. Entering Sunday's slate he'd recorded a hit in each of his games since his return and threw in a steal for good measure. Part of Bonifacio's charm is his position flexibility. He's eligible at both second base and outfield in ESPN leagues. He's a nice option for steals with 14 stolen bases in 282...

DFP: Neil Ramirez and Rusney Castillo

Did the Cubs Win? Nope. Dropped two of three to the Cardinals this weekend. Huh? The Cubs sent Neil Ramirez to Iowa over the weekend, citing the need to rest his arm, which strikes me as extremely odd. Ramirez has been arguably the best reliever on the team, but had not been overused by anyone’s definition of the word. I can’t remember another example of a team limiting a reliever’s...

Jack White doesn't look happy to be at Cubs game

The Chicago Cubs added an official mascot, Clark the Cub, this offseason. But we’re pretty sure no one has more accurately summed up the Cub fan experience than rocker Jack White, who took in Tuesday night’s game at Wrigley Field the night before his own show in the Windy City. I believe the dictionary definition for this particular look is “bemused.” And I’m fairly...
