The title of this one is a reference not only to the Chicago Cubs, but also to the fact that I haven’t blogged in a while and figured I should probably set up some kind of work-life balance to try to squeeze something out on a regular basis. Perhaps starting Continue reading A New Beginning…?
Has it really been that long since we blogged? I guess the answer is yes, and it’s something of a miracle that this site is still around after two-plus months of idleness. Going to have to break out the Swiffers to get rid of all this dust, and catch up Continue reading A Year Unlike Any Other
So, the Chicago Cubs ended the season having earned the right to play at home in the first round of the playoffs… …and then proceeded to join the rest of their Central division brethren in going 0-for-7 in the postseason. Which, yes, means that the division series will only have Continue reading The Morning After
The Cubs did clinch the NL Central during their loss to the White Sox on Saturday, and decided to switch to “whatever” mode shortly after, earning the right to chill and wait for their eventual first round opponent. It’s a testament to the patience, attitude, and resilience of the team Continue reading Wrapping Up the Regular Season
Boy, you think the Cubs had turned a corner, and then suddenly they drop a key series to the literal worst team in MLB. Naturally it is easy to think that if this were an actual 162 game season without a pandemic lurking, this set of Cubs would be blown Continue reading An Industrial Sized Chill Pill
The Chicago Cubs had themselves a very interesting series win against division rival Milwaukee, and the final game between the two teams this season did not disappoint…if you’re a Cubs fan, that is: At this point, the Cubs have 12 games remaining with a 28-20 record.

But somehow, they still managed to come out of their final Continue reading Finish Strong or Just Hang On?
The Cubs plowed through their bullpen and the Reds on Sunday to split the series and notch their 20th win in 34 games. With an off day Monday that coincides with the 2020 season’s trade deadline, the Cubs will have 26 games left (give or take depending on how the Continue reading Trade Deadline and a Cubs Off Day
The Cubs, having survived the early week of shenanigans and now in the midst of playing the crosstown “rival” White Sox, are nearly at the halfway point of the abbreviated 60-game season. Since I have a day job, I probably won’t have time to write anything during the week (busy Continue reading Oh, We’re Halfway There…
We’re about a week out of the Cubs getting their first series against the Cardinals postponed as half of the St. Louis clubhouse (literally!) tested positive for COVID-19. And we just found out how at least two of the clubs, who weren’t able to play the Cardinals because of what Continue reading Shenanigans!
