A Paradigm Shift, Of Sorts

Share Button

It has been way long since I last posted something on the blog itself. Lots of work, lots of time spent with family (which is good!), and just the boring offseason because owners don’t feel like spending money, have made it difficult to figure out something to write about. I Continue reading A Paradigm Shift, Of Sorts

Assuming There’s a Plan…

Share Button

Hey look, it’s December! As you all know, I moved back home to California a few months ago, and I finally have an actual full-time job to grow with as I become a scientist yet again. Yay me. In the meantime, I have been keeping up with the Cubs and Continue reading Assuming There’s a Plan…

Looking Ahead to the 2019 Cubs…

Share Button

As the Division Series in both leagues wind down, and with the Cubs watching from the outside, I suppose the most relevant Cubs thing we could do around here is to look to the future. The good news, I think, is that bounce backs are expected and reasonable, and the Continue reading Looking Ahead to the 2019 Cubs…

A Renewed Sense of Urgency

Share Button

And so, the night after the unthinkable happened, it has come to this… The Cubs are going home for the winter. With an optimist’s point of view, maybe it was best to give the players an extended rest after three consecutive seasons of deep playoff runs and an atrocious end-of-year Continue reading A Renewed Sense of Urgency

What If?

Share Button

As the Cubs and Brewers find themselves tied for the NL Central lead with just one game to go, we think about all the “what ifs” throughout the season that could have avoided this scenario. It’s easy to blame this on a collapse of sorts, since all the Cubs had Continue reading What If?

The Final Stretch

Share Button

Well well…remember what I said before the Cubs went off to Arizona? Right now, there is a 2.5 game NL Central lead with a magic number of 11. Just get to Thursday without anyone else getting hurt and with at least that lead intact, and I believe the Cubs are Continue reading The Final Stretch

That Elusive Off Day

Share Button

I realize that everything is terrible these days (whether we’re talking about the Chicago Cubs or real life), but I think the fact that the Cubs are still projected to make the playoffs is good news. I doubt the odds have changed much since the Sunday loss (they did win Continue reading That Elusive Off Day

The Remains of the Season

Share Button

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
