Kris Bryant has been headline news in Chicago all season long, but the guy the Cubs loved from the minute they drafted him will get a national spotlight at Sunday's MLB All-Star Futures Game.
Arismendy Alcantara is impressing during his midsummer call-up, but he could impress even more down the road, where his versatility on the diamond could make him all the more valuable.
Edwin Jackson had another rough outing Saturday as the $52 million man allowed three homers to the Braves and picked up his 10th loss of the season in the Cubs' 11-6 defeat at Wrigley Field.

    While Mike Quade admits he's more of a "rental guy," the Cubs manager will probably go see "Moneyball" given his close connection to the book-turned-movie, as Quade was Oakland's first-base coach in 2002.

    After becoming the 16th player in Cubs history to collect at least 200 hits in a season, 21-year-old Starlin Castro said he's working every day to become a "complete superstar." CSN's Patrick Mooney has the story.
