Share Button

At this rate, we should see Cael Brockmeyer with the Chicago Cubs shortly after the All Star break. Not really, but Mr. Brockmeyer has certainly had a busy couple of weeks. The catcher/first baseman started the 2015 seaon in South Bend where WE. LOVED. HIM. WALK-OFF! Cael Brockmeyer (@BigBrock9) blasts Continue reading South Bend Cubs: the journey of Cael Brockmeyer

Cub Fans, Listen to the Wisdom of Bob Marley

Over the past 12 hours I have seen far more panic and angst on FaceBook and Twitter than is necessary. Yea, the Chicago Cubs lost a game against the St. Louis Cardinals late. Down to their final strike, everyone assumed the game was over and the Cubs won the game, Continue reading Cub Fans, Listen to the Wisdom of Bob Marley

Jon Lester, David Ross and Miguel Montero

Last night was a good night for Jon Lester and the Chicago Cubs, until the seventh inning.

So… Ricketts & Co Have Done Nothing?

Share Button

These past few days we have had some interesting conversations with some of our fellow Chicago Cubs fans. Oddly enough everything revolved around their buying Clayton Richard to fill in as their fifth starter until they could actually (possibly) find a better pitcher on the trade market.

Cubs Offense Breaks Out…. Sorta 

Share Button

Last night the Chicago Cubs did something that we have been waiting for. They scored seven, yes seven runs in a ball game.
