The Chicago Cubs have been leading in All-Star voting for weeks now, and some folks even tried to write in David Ross.  There are all kinds of opinions about how this exhibition game should not determine World Series home field advantage (an opinion shared by Ben Zobrist), or that certain Continue reading The 2016 All-Stars

The Chicago Cubs players and fans love messing with David Ross because he is the old man on the team. Even though he is only a young 39, that is kind of old for a professional athlete.

Games like last night are very disappointing. I understand why fans are upset and disappointed. Like you, I want to see them win every game they play, even though I know that is impossible. Teams like the San Diego Padres, Milwaukee Brewers and Atlanta Braves should be easy wins. Alas, Continue reading Cubs Record Against Bad Teams is 24-12? Not Bad At All

Unless you have been living under a rock the past several months, you would know that Chicago Cubs Ace Jake Arrieta is on an unbelievable run. He is as close to unhittable as a pitcher can get, and that is saying something since he has thrown two no hitters in Continue reading Enough Already

Last night was one to remember. Of course all the headlines will deservedly so be about Jake Arrieta. Last night he threw his second no hitter in his last 11 regular season starts.
