Cubs manager Joe Maddon working on another potential White House visit

Tue, 27 Jun 2017 00:00:18 GMT

WASHINGTON – Less than six months after the Cubs toured the White House as one of the final stops on their World Series victory tour, manager Joe Maddon is angling for another visit to 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. Maddon’s childhood friend from Hazleton, Congressman Lou Barletta, is working to arrange a private tour this week while the Cubs are in Washington for a four-game showdown against the first-place Nationals. “I’m staying in touch with my boy Louie,” Maddon said Monday. “Who knows? We might end up going over there again.” This wouldn’t be the East Room spectacle the Cubs enjoyed in January, when President Barack Obama’s final official White House event became a kind of farewell gift to his

Manager Joe Maddon and some of the Chicago Cubs will visit the White House on Wednesday, though it's not an official visit with President Donald Trump. Maddon said Tuesday that he was going out of respect for the Ricketts family, which owns the Cubs and donated to Trump's campaign. The Cubs are in Washington to play the Nationals.



Here are the races to watch in the final days of MLB All-Star voting

Mon, 26 Jun 2017 17:34:23 GMT

The biggest note in the latest round of voting data: Marcell Ozuna of the host Miami Marlins has taken over the third and final National League outfield spot from Jason Heyward of the Chicago Cubs. A number of races — like American League and National League first basemen and NL third baseman — remain pretty close, so we’ll get to those in a minute.

With the 2017 All-Star break just a few short weeks away, the Los Angeles Dodgers are looking like the best team in baseball.

Going 51-26 to start the season, the Dodgers are tied with the Chicago Cubs with +600 betting odds to win the championship, via Bovada.lv.



Minors Setback: Kyle Schwarber not surprised about demotion

Tue, 27 Jun 2017 05:14:45 GMT

Schwarber's October return following a knee injury helped fuel Chicago's first World Series title in 108 years, but he was sent down to Triple-A Iowa on Thursday after hitting .171 in 64 games this season. Schwarber joined Iowa in time for Monday's home game against New Orleans, where he hit third and played left field. The 24-year-old said the Cubs haven't given him a timeline for a return to the majors.



Costly error, missed chance as Cubs lose to Marlins 4-2

Mon, 26 Jun 2017 02:12:52 GMT

Chicago Cubs manager Joe Maddon says this season is like learning to swim, with his team hoping to tread water until several key players return from the disabled list. The Cubs wasted a fine pitching performance by Mike Montgomery, stranding 11 runners and allowing three unearned runs to lose to the Miami Marlins, 4-2. Chicago also lost shortstop Addison Russell , who departed in the fourth inning.



Cubs show why they are defending champs while Nationals still have something to prove

Tue, 27 Jun 2017 03:17:30 GMT

WASHINGTON – The Cubs already visited the White House. The Washington Nationals are still the team with so much more to prove. Dusty Baker needs this October to cement his spot in Cooperstown, the way Joe Maddon put the final bullet point on his Hall of Fame resume. Bryce Harper and Kris Bryant took different routes out of Las Vegas, but only one has the World Series ring to go with the Rookie of the Year/MVP hardware. While the clock is ticking on Max Scherzer and that championship parade down Pennsylvania Avenue, the Jon Lester megadeal essentially paid for itself. Cubs vs. Nationals is supposed to be a circle-your-calendar event. Except the Cubs rolled out a Cactus League lineup on Monday

Cubs hold on after Nationals rally for 4 in 9th, win 5-4

Tue, 27 Jun 2017 04:39:37 GMT

After a nail-biting victory over the NL East leading Washington Nationals, Chicago Cubs manager Joe Maddon still cringed to consider what could've happened. In jeopardy of being shut out for the first time this season, the Nationals' comeback began against Hector Rondon and continued when Davis became the Cubs' eighth pitcher of the game. With Washington down 5-3, Bryce Harper's single and third hit of the game loaded the bases with two outs.

Hey Hey! Brickhouse Tavern opens today at the Park at Wrigley

Tue, 27 Jun 2017 17:52:00 GMT

The Cubs are out of town until the Fourth of July, but there's still reason to visit Wrigley Field this week. Brickhouse Tavern, named for legendary Cubs broadcaster Jack Brickhouse, debuts today at the Park at Wrigley, the new indoor/outdoor space adjacent to Wrigley Field. The tavern-style restaurant is by the Four Corners Tavern Group (Benchmark, Sidebar Grille, Schoolyard, many more) and Hickory Street Capital (the development company, owned by the Ricketts family, behind the Park at Wrigley and under-construction Hotel Zachary).

Maddon says Cubs making informal trip to White House

Tue, 27 Jun 2017 22:28:00 GMT

WASHINGTON (AP) - Manager Joe Maddon and some of the Chicago Cubs will visit the White House on Wednesday, though it's not an official visit with President Donald Trump. Maddon said Tuesday that he was going out of respect for the Ricketts family, which owns the Cubs and donated to Trump's campaign. Maddon said it was voluntary for players and not an official trip. The Cubs are in Washington to play the Nationals. The White House visit is so unofficial that Maddon said it's only "a possibility" that he and the Cubs will see Trump. The team visited President Barack Obama at the White House as World Series champions in January before the end of his term. Amid questions about whether the NBA champion
