Let the narrative begin. The Chicago Cubs will be flying to New York City soon to take on the Mets, who just dispatched the Los Angeles Dodgers in going the distance in their NLDS. Drew already did a quickie preview, and Sports Illustrated did a more thorough analysis on the Continue reading Cubs vs. Mets in NLCS
Going into this year, if they were honest, most Chicago Cubs fans would have told you that they would have been happy with a .500 record after three years of crap. At 97 wins, the Cubs fans considered this a “bonus year” as they were assumed to have arrived into Continue reading That Felt Great!
Seems like this has become a huge issue so far this season for the MLB. I feel like it has been more hurtful this year than many of the years before. Sliding into second to break up a double play has brought down a few players so far. I mean Continue reading The Art of the Slide
Well what a good Sunday morning it is. Cubs are tied 1-1 with the Cardinals and they are riding a huge high of winning on the road and coming home to the dominant Jake Arrieta. I could not be more happy. Last nights game was a huge turn in the Continue reading Back to Wrigley

The Chicago Cubs are in the playoffs, and fans are getting excited!
