Wrigleyville Nation's Becky Sarwate looks at the positive vibe coming out of the Cubs' spring training camp. As she writes, "These are good guys – on and off the field. In the early weeks of Spring Training, the team has absolutely proven its focus on winning games. Prioritizing humanity and giving back to the fans is another victory."

At the annual Cubs Convention in January, Theo Epstein let enough slip to dial 2018 media and fan excitement to 11. Following the late 2017 acquisition of Colorado Rockies hurler Tyler Chatwood, described by NBC 5 Chicago’s James Neveau as a “centerpiece pitching acquisition,” Epstein famously...

With the Cubs' reported signing of Yu Darvish to a six-year, $126 million deal, it seems all but certain that Jake Arrieta will be wearing another team's uniform in 2018. Wrigleyville Nation's Randy Richardson says goodbye - and thanks - in a heartfelt tribute to one of the team's all-time greats with his own special memory of the day he met Arrieta in a Wrigleyville bar and the epic run that followed that day.

Wrigleyville Nation's Brian Johnston looks back 20 years, to the Cubs' memorable 1998 season.

We remember the 1998 Cubs season, one of the most memorable in team history.

Wrigleyville Nation's Randy Richardson asks: Why are we still waiting for the Cubs to make the move to at least match the offseason improvements of their divisional rivals, the Cards and the Brewers? Writes Richardson: "Yu Darvish, Arrieta and Alex Cobb are all still available. The Cubs need to sign one of them before another hungry team gobbles them up. They need to do it now. Because that clock is ticking." Click on the link to read "Time is now for Cubs to make a move."

The clock is ticking. Can you here it? Tick-tock. Tick-tock. In just ten days, pitchers and catcher’s report for spring training. And yet the Cubs still have a big hole in their starting rotation. Sorry, Mike Montgomery, you haven’t shown that you can fill it. You’re a solid fill-in when one o...

Wrigleyville Nation's Becky Sarwate looks at the Cubs' offseason moves to bolster the pitching staff and what may still be coming.

I am old enough, yet still possessed of the necessary memory, to recall Chicago Cubs offseasons of yore and all the wasted pitching opportunities. Let us, for example, hearken back to the 1991 free agent acquisition of Toronto pitcher Danny Jackson. Management signed the hurler to a four-year, $10.5...
