The Face of Baseball COULD Be…

Share Button

Once upon a time, folks freaked out because the Chicago Cubs dared to trade a quality starting pitcher for a relatively unknown prospect named Anthony Rizzo. Fast forward about five years, with a supremely team-friendly extension thrown in, and we have been fortunate to track the growth and explosion of Continue reading The Face of Baseball COULD Be…

Sunday Night Cubs Thoughts

Share Button

We can reasonably assume that the Chicago Cubs will be good enough to make the playoffs, and are once again the favorites to repeat as World Series champions, although that is a bit of a riskier bet.  Nonetheless, as of Sunday night, the Cubs lead the National League Central Division Continue reading Sunday Night Cubs Thoughts

Things I Think About on a Cubs Off Day

Share Button

As the Chicago Cubs enjoy their off day while in transit to Cincinnati to play the Mighty Reds (who as of this moment are in a bit of an offensive funk of their own), I enjoyed a very nice baseball weather day of my own.  It was in the mid-60s Continue reading Things I Think About on a Cubs Off Day

Dreamcast 5: The Season is Saved

Share Button

Howdy folks!  In this episode of the Dreamcast, because both Anno and Rice had been up since before the sun came up, we got a bit tired, but we did get some e-mails and gave away a bobblehead again.  We talked a bit about the Chicago Cubs’ slow start, and Continue reading Dreamcast 5: The Season is Saved

This is a fun treat for you.  A friend of the blog associated with the gentleman in charge of “The Art of Words” wanted us to pass along the site where you can find his work.  The featured product is a lovely print of pre-video board Wrigley Field, made with Continue reading The Cubs and the Art of Words

On the Cubs Pitchers and Velocity

Share Button

You may have heard some nervous chatter about the Chicago Cubs starting pitchers and their noticeable drop in fastball velocity.  There has been speculation on why this is, from a switch in tracking technology, to age or wear and tear due to consecutive deep playoff runs.  We had recently discussed Continue reading On the Cubs Pitchers and Velocity

The Inevitable Cubs Roster Roulette Situation (UPDATES)

Share Button

We had started talking about this eventuality after a listener sent in a question on a recent Dreamcast, but really, what will happen once Brian Duensing is ready to come back from the disabled list?  Well, this isn’t exactly the way we had envisioned it… The #Cubs today activated LHP Continue reading The Inevitable Cubs Roster Roulette Situation (UPDATES)

Dreamcast 4: Put a Ring On It

Share Button

Hello Cubs fans!  After Anno went to Wrigley Field on Monday night to check out the banner ceremony (you can listen to that here), our friend Crawly got to be an actual ring bearer as the 2016 World Series champions received their sweet new championship rings.  You can check out Continue reading Dreamcast 4: Put a Ring On It

The Cubs Ring Ceremony (VIDEO)

The Chicago Cubs got their rings on Wednesday night, and while the game didn’t go quite so well, the ceremony itself was very welcome, and much needed for a fan base starved of glory for a full century: Your browser does not support iframes. I guess I finally found out Continue reading The Cubs Ring Ceremony (VIDEO)

The Cubs Get Their Rings!

After Monday night’s banner ceremony and walk-off victory, the Chicago Cubs players got their World Series championship rings on the field before Wednesday night’s game.  We got a hint of what they would look like: What a tease. pic.twitter.com/ITPk3XydxT — Chicago Cubs (@Cubs) April 12, 2017 It was a really Continue reading The Cubs Get Their Rings!
