You may have seen this earlier, as the Tampa Bay Rays work on their whole bullpen day within the rotation for the entire season, but this time taking it to yet another level: Zack Cozart on the #Rays starting Romo on back-to-back days: “It was weird…it’s bad for baseball, in Continue reading A Labor of Love

Coping With Loss

This day started like any random off day for the Cubs. At least, during the tail end of the school year, when I long for summer and want all the kids to just do their work, get their final grades, and leave me alone for a month so I can Continue reading Coping With Loss

Cubs Weekend Roundup

You may have noticed the paucity of content around these parts. I imagine that may explain the lack of hits on our trusty blog, as well as a steady exodus of followers as Facebook and Twitter start getting rid of bots (or maybe people are just tired of us, hehe), Continue reading Cubs Weekend Roundup

As the Chicago Cubs sneak closer to first place (again), the scoring has come aplenty and the plays have been awe-inspiring and entertaining at the very least.

Yet this spring, Americans on the homefront were tired. Wearied from years of terrible war and from the ever present Continue reading Remembering Phil Cavarretta and the 1945 Season

  You may have noticed that between life, work, and coaching my own baseball team, there hasn’t been much in the way of content here lately. Of course, we’re still following the Cubs games, and while they are having their bouts of frustrating inconsistency, I think we all expect it Continue reading Days Like These

Sun’s Out, Fun’s Out

On a beautiful but cold day in Chicago, I watched my high school’s baseball team play superbly to notch their first victory of the season after many false starts and game postponements due to the ludicrous weather and other issues.  A few miles north, the Chicago Cubs also notched not Continue reading Sun’s Out, Fun’s Out
