After Tuesday night’s offensive fail, it was understandable that Cubs fans would be jumping off the ledges and portending doom for this overrated team. What fans, media, and everyone else kind of forgot was that this same team was the one that racked up 103 victories over the regular season, Continue reading NLCS Game 4: The Rumors of Cubs Demise Were Greatly Exaggerated

As you may have heard, the Chicago Cubs, those sleep-depriving band of lunatic youngsters (and Grandpa, too), have earned a trip to the National League Championship Series against whoever decides to win Game 5 of the other NLDS.  As Jake Arrieta might say…who gives a shit?  The Cubs are good, Continue reading The Best of the 2016 Cubs NLDS

Since the last time we checked in, the Chicago Cubs have continued showing that they are the best team in MLB, despite not exactly blowing out the San Francisco Giants this Labor Day weekend.  With this series, the Cubs have reduced their magic number to clinch a playoff spot (and Continue reading Cubs Go To 11

After dropping a series in Los Angeles against the Dodgers, you probably saw a bunch of hot takes from media and bloggers alike about how the Chicago Cubs are flawed or whatever.  It was nice to get back home to Wrigley Field, where Anno saw the Cubs force extras before Continue reading The Cubs Are Good, But You Knew That Already

Welp!  Even if the series had turned out differently I guess I would have still used this silly movie reference.  Actually, the movie was bad, sure, but it was FUN bad!  Sort of like Sunday, when all you could do was laugh it off.

Ah, so since the LAST time we blogged up a recap, it appears that the Chicago Cubs have continued their winning ways.  This included a series split (with two very annoying losses at the tail end of the series) with the St. Louis Cardinals, and a just-completed sweep of the Continue reading Ivy’s Roundup — The Cubs Season Is Miraculously Not Over

Alright, it’s the start of the school year and we’re all busy these days, so you’re not going to get recaps and stuff as often.  Unless, of course, a breaking news story happens during one of my rare prep periods or before or after school, then you’ll get a time Continue reading Ivy’s Roundup – The American League West is Turrible

It’s been a while since we did any series recaps, and since it’s Friday night and I just got back from a softball game and Ivy is busy, I’ll just sum it up by saying that the Chicago Cubs are good at baseball.  We can do this super quick… Seattle Continue reading Ivy’s Roundup – Walking Off Into a Bigger Division Lead
