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.

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. That gives them a Continue reading Let’s Just Say This Was a Turning Point

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!
It didn’t seem like that long since the first major outbreak in MLB with the Marlins losing literally half their squad to COVID-19.
