Patrick Wisdom Can’t Let Nico Hoerner Have All the Homer Fun

Clearly, Patrick Wisdom went up there, having watching Nico Hoerner absolutely CRUSH a homer just a couple batters earlier, and knew that he had to remind folks who really has the power on the Cubs. So he crushed one of his own (though the dugout probably noted for him that...

Patrick Wisdom is Here to Show You the True Meaning of Early-Season Extremes

Everything gets magnified in the early going of a baseball season. Things you would barely notice if they happened over a five-game stretch in June look like the WHOLE OF EVERYTHING IN THE UNIVERSE in April. We can’t help it. You wait for months and months for the season to return, and when there is new action to digest and statistics to discuss, it’s more or less impossible not to put too much stock in anything – even if you manage to do it only a little bit.

Cubs: It looks like Patrick Wisdom has awoken from his slumber

Cubs’ Patrick Wisdom and Nico Hoerner are among the players getting in work at the MLBPA facility in Arizona

For a few hours Monday morning, there was a hint of normalcy. Chicago Cubs third baseman Patrick Wisdom and shortstop Nico Hoerner took batting practice before spending 20 minutes fielding ground balls, at one point turning double plays when Hoerner moved to second base to get reps. Wisdom then shifted to the outfield to work on fly balls while Hoerner took photos with a couple of fans and signed baseballs for kids.

Patrick Wisdom is the Latest Chicago Cubs Player to Speak Out

Patrick Wisdom was a supplemental first round draft pick of the St. Louis Cardinals back in 2012, signing for a bonus of $693,000. That is, unquestionably, a lot of money to any regular person, even after you account for taxes, agent fees, private training, and so on and so forth. Across the entire spectrum of professional baseball – the entire body of players who are drafted or signed internationally and try to make a go of this thing – you could therefore characterize Wisdom as among the more fortunate.

Patrick Wisdom showed plenty of power in his record-setting rookie season. But for him to have a meaningful Chicago Cubs role, he needs to cut down on his high strikeout numbers.

Chicago Cubs third baseman Patrick Wisdom tried to embrace the special moments during his record-setting rookie season — even if his accomplishments still hadn’t fully hit him amid the daily grind. Wisdom’s breakout 2021 performance included scorching hot streaks and setting a Cubs rookie home run record after surpassing Kris Bryant’s mark. However, with those highs came lows — namely, ...

Frank Schwindel, Patrick Wisdom, and the Chicago Cubs’ big lineup gamble

Chicago Cubs president and general manager Jed Hoyer is taking a big gamble on some very small names in preparing his team for the start of the 2022 season. Prior to the lockout, Hoyer made several moves designed to fortify an obviously weak rotation. Those included the signing of free agent Marcus Stroman and a waiver claim that brought in Wade Miley. Both are veterans who project to be at the top of the team’s rotation when the regular season begins.

Patrick Wisdom Perseveres to Set Record After Gut Check Saturday

As heavy as the head may be that wears the crown, I’m guessing the metaphorical diadem Patrick Wisdom donned Sunday afternoon in Milwaukee felt a helluva lot lighter than the golden sombreros he’d been rocking. The three-true-outcome rookie was 0-for-4 with a walk and four strikeouts Saturday as the Cubs dropped their second straight to the Brewers, causing him to doubt himself a bit heading into the series finale.
