Let me be clear. I am not rushing to judgment. I will not condemn or exonerate Addison Russell until everything comes out. I am not saying he is guilty or if his wife’s friends are lying. Please refrain from victim bashing or rushing to deem Russell guilty. At the moment, Continue reading Why? Can Someone PLEASE Tell Me Why?
Recently, I looked at some fixes Major League Baseball might consider to improve the pace of play. This has the added effect of keeping fans interested and overall increasing the enjoyment of the game, at least in my opinion. Grabbing casual fans’ attention can only improve the sport. Of course, as Continue reading More Offerings at Wrigley Field if You’re a Rich Bastard
A fleeting statement from Peter Gammons quickly spread like wildfire across the internet and most of Chicago Cubs Twitter and other social media… That would be former and potentially repeat MVP Bryce Harper, he of the Washington Nationals and perennial All-Star appearances, five very solid-to-elite tools, and my goodness can’t Continue reading Pondering Bryce Harper…Future Chicago Cubs All-Star?
The Cubs aren’t playing well. Nobody is going to say anything different. It’s actually pretty obvious. And there is no question that is the single biggest contributing factor to their slow start, sitting just one game above .500 through 49 games. Some key offensive contributors haven’t produced like they’re capable. Continue reading Early Season Schedule Not Cutting Struggling Cubs Any Breaks
Let’s just cut to the chase. Thus far the 2017 season has been somewhat of a disappointment. The Chicago Cubs are not looking like the juggernaut we thought they would be, and they have given us little sign that they can be. However, that is not to say that the Continue reading A Disappointing Start to the 2017 Season
It isn’t really breaking news that Jake Arrieta hasn’t been the same pitcher we’ve seen over the last few years to this point in 2017. Even when he struggled with command in the second half last season, the results weren’t so strikingly awful. As we sit here today, through 8 Continue reading Jake Arrieta’s Struggles are Really Interesting
We’ve been talking about it since November when Ian Happ went nuts in the Arizona Fall League Title Game, but when we dropped the most recent Dreamcast, we didn’t think he would be up so soon. Back in 2015, when there was the whole bruhaha about Kris Bryant‘s service time, Continue reading Ian Happ’s Debut Was a Plethora of Firsts
With the news that Chicago Cubs pitcher Brett Anderson had a back issue (again), we started speculating about what the team would do in the wake of an injury that was shrouding another bad start. Lo and behold, we have our answer: The #Cubs today recalled RHP Justin Grimm and Continue reading Reinforcements Incoming!
First, let us set up the BIG news of the day: The #Cubs today recalled LHP Rob Zastryzny from @IowaCubs. OF Matt Szczur has been designated for assignment. — Chicago Cubs (@Cubs) May 6, 2017 Anderson came out of the game because of low back tightness. He's being evaluated. #Cubs Continue reading The Cubs Roster Roulette Wheel Spins Again (UPDATE)
I admit it, I’m a Chicago Cubs homer. But it’s easy to root for this team, especially since they’re built so well at every position. Sure, they’re not firing on all cylinders YET, but we’re barely into May and there are plenty of games left for the Cubs to find Continue reading May the Odds Ever Be In Your Favor
