We got ourselves a classic low-scoring game with all the nerves and frustration that goes with it, plus the elation when the game finally ends in the Cubs’ favor. I was going to just post highlights, but one Ian Happ helped me decide to not be so lazy and give Continue reading The Happ Trick
Remember Jurassic Park? The book, actually, not the movie. Within the book (which was better than the movie, which was already very good, in my opinion), the character of Ian Malcolm is a mathematician who specializes in chaos theory. He models real-world systems using a tool called fractals, which take Continue reading Getting Back on Track?
You may have noticed the paucity of content around these parts. I imagine that may explain the lack of hits on our trusty blog, as well as a steady exodus of followers as Facebook and Twitter start getting rid of bots (or maybe people are just tired of us, hehe), Continue reading Cubs Weekend Roundup
It hasn’t been the best start of the 2018 season for our Chicago Cubs, but thanks to the availability of tanking teams, they were at least able to wake up some bats and at least temporarily right the ship. We will see how the Cubs decide to do against the Continue reading Off Day Cubs Highlight Reel
On a beautiful but cold day in Chicago, I watched my high school’s baseball team play superbly to notch their first victory of the season after many false starts and game postponements due to the ludicrous weather and other issues.

There were a few really good things that happened for the Chicago Cubs and their fans on Thursday. We can start with the part where the weather actually didn’t suck and the Cubs got to play a baseball game in relatively mild conditions compared to their games on Hoth the Continue reading 300 Already?
Let’s be very honest. The 2018 version of the Chicago Cubs has been an early disappointment, and it’s been a mystery as to why they have been so inconsistent given how good they are supposed to be on paper. However, we then look at teams like the Giants and Dodgers, Continue reading A Different Brand of Frustration
After early season feelings of doom, the Chicago Cubs managed to secure a winning road trip before heading home to Wrigley Field for Monday’s home opener. Having already taken two of the first three (and potentially, they could have swept those if not for some stupidity), taking the finale was Continue reading Good Brew
I’m pretty sure the Cubs are glad that they are going to their actual home soon, but it’s nice to know that they can play in front of a home crowd even in another state. Between all the sniping on social media between the two teams and their fanbases, the Continue reading Better to be Lucky AND Good!
