    Guardians 5, Cubs 3: The story of Adrian Sampson and the long ball

    Adrian Sampson had a nice little run for the Cubs in 2022, putting together a 3.11 ERA and 1.227 WHIP in 21 appearances (19 starts). It seems clear that Hayden Wesneski has won the fifth rotation spot, and Javier Assad seems to have passed up Sampson for a long relief role. As always, we await developments, but possibly think of Sampson as a pitching version of Frank Schwindel, a guy who had a nice little MLB run and some recognition for it, but the team might have to move on. Edwin Rios hit this RBI double in the first [VIDEO].

    Paul Sullivan: Dansby Swanson's forgettable spring continues, but Cubs aren't worried about their $177 million man

    After signing a seven-year, $177 million deal in December to be the centerpiece of the Chicago Cubs lineup, Dansby Swanson entered the final weekend of Cactus League play hitting .059. No one in spring training with 30 or more at-bats had a lower batting average than the new Cubs shortstop. In his first at-bat Friday in a 5-3 win against the Texas Rangers at Sloan Park, Swanson hit a slow roller to the right side but legged out an infield single thanks to a poor defensive play. Swanson's slow start shouldn't be cause for concern — unless it carries over into the season.
