The Remains of the Season

Since the Cubs won their getaway game against the Milwaukee Brewers and have a four-game cushion in the NL Central before heading to Washington to battle the slightly torn down but still not that bad Nationals, I thought I’d update from the previous blog and check on the outlook as Continue reading The Remains of the Season

Never Tell Me the Odds!

The job hunt is going along, but I sure would enjoy having a few more interviews and maybe even an offer or two. Anyway, life is no excuse for not updating this blog, so I thought I would at least talk about the odds… As of today (Tuesday 9/4), the Continue reading Never Tell Me the Odds!

Welcome to September

The Cubs, just like all of MLB, took advantage of the changing of the calendar and roster rules: The #Cubs today announced the following roster moves: INFs Kris Bryant & Addison Russell activated from 10-day DLRHP James Norwood recalled from @IowaCubsOF Terrance Gore and C Taylor Davis selected from Triple-ARHP Continue reading Welcome to September

The Cubs’ Full House

Share Button

The Chicago Cubs will be home for the majority of the remainder of the 2018 season, which on the surface should be good for them to secure another NL Central division title. The recent trade for Daniel Murphy reminded me of when they traded for Aroldis Chapman for the stretch Continue reading The Cubs’ Full House

#FlyTheW Across the USA

It’s been a while since I’ve had a chance to blog, what with moving across the country and all. I still stand by my original statement that the Cubs should be able to navigate their schedule well despite their recent hiccups, but of course they will have to play hard Continue reading #FlyTheW Across the USA

Well, here we are in August, and we are stuck in Lincoln, Nebraska, because the stupid car decided to run into a mechanical problem. Thankfully it’s not the engine this time! It’s kind of funny how we are saying goodbye to Chicago just as the Cubs return home for seemingly Continue reading Home Cooking

Goodbye, Chicago

Share Button

Okay, folks. Within hours of you guys reading this, I will be traveling west towards California. I’ll do my best to keep listening and following Cubs games on The Score as long as the signal holds, but eventually I will have to let go of that one, too. In addition Continue reading Goodbye, Chicago

Don’t Say Dumb Stuff, But There’s More to That

Share Button

By now, many of you know that there have been a few young MLB players who have gotten into trouble for certain things that they were not perceptive enough to scrub from their social media accounts prior to becoming a public figure. I won’t link to the ones by Josh Continue reading Don’t Say Dumb Stuff, But There’s More to That

Cole Hamels, Chicago Cub! (UPDATES: Official)

Share Button

The Cubs went and won themselves a ball game (the come from behind variety, again) while I was in the midst of moving all my stuff for relocation to California. That was fun, but I suppose we should address the elephant in the room that is Tyler Chatwood. In theory, Continue reading Cole Hamels, Chicago Cub! (UPDATES: Official)

Dreamcast 44: Goes Both Ways

Share Button

One last time for Rice at Wrigley Field before the big move to California. We do talk a bit about the Bobblehead Day and some exploits by a certain Cub, but you’re probably wondering how to win Anno’s spare Wrigley scoreboard clock. To do so, listen to this Dreamcast and Continue reading Dreamcast 44: Goes Both Ways
