#FlyTheW Across the USA

Share Button

It’s been a while since I’ve had a chance to blog, what with moving across the country and all. I still stand by my original statement that the Cubs should be able to navigate their schedule well despite their recent hiccups, but of course they will have to play hard Continue reading #FlyTheW Across the USA

Goodbye, Chicago

Okay, folks. Within hours of you guys reading this, I will be traveling west towards California. I’ll do my best to keep listening and following Cubs games on The Score as long as the signal holds, but eventually I will have to let go of that one, too. In addition Continue reading Goodbye, Chicago

Don’t Say Dumb Stuff, But There’s More to That

Share Button

By now, many of you know that there have been a few young MLB players who have gotten into trouble for certain things that they were not perceptive enough to scrub from their social media accounts prior to becoming a public figure. I won’t link to the ones by Josh Continue reading Don’t Say Dumb Stuff, But There’s More to That

Give It To a Kid! (UPDATE: Well, Actually…)

Share Button

The Cubs won their series finale against the St. Louis Cardinals, and in doing so, also won the series and increased their NL Central lead. The game also featured a moment that started off poorly, but ended up swell for a young fan. There are commercial jingles made about these Continue reading Give It To a Kid! (UPDATE: Well, Actually…)

Happy Father’s Day!

Not much happening these days as the regular season keeps on trucking, and the Cubs start signing up their draft picks while waiting for guys like Yu Darvish and Carl Edwards Jr.to come back from the disabled list. So while we don’t have the time for creative content that kind Continue reading Happy Father’s Day!

Javier Baez, Sorcerer Supreme

Share Button

As the Chicago Cubs sneak closer to first place (again), the scoring has come aplenty and the plays have been awe-inspiring and entertaining at the very least. Meanwhile, one of the most popular Cubs players (if not a fledgling superstar, depending on how you feel about the term) is making Continue reading Javier Baez, Sorcerer Supreme

A Lack of Baseball Weather

Share Button

The Cubs played a ridiculous game in not-so-fun elements on Saturday, and at least they won it, but baseball as a sport is not designed to be played when it is wet or ridiculously cold outside. I totally get why they tried to shoehorn in the game given that the Continue reading A Lack of Baseball Weather

World Series Dreaming Shutting Its Doors…

Share Button

After all this time, going from the Jim Hendry-led division winners to the disaster before Theo Epstein’s rebuild to the World Series champions, World Series Dreaming is no more… …or rather, it won’t be any more if you kind folks don’t keep helping us out by spreading the gospel of Continue reading World Series Dreaming Shutting Its Doors…

Game Flow Check (Periodic Updates)

Share Button

There’s really no point to this other than to satisfy my curiosity.  There have been a lot of extra inning games over the first series of the 2018 season, so those will naturally last just a bit longer than the regulation contests, which already get close to three hours, and Continue reading Game Flow Check (Periodic Updates)

A Rethinking of How Baseball Should Work

Share Button

I read a fun article by Grant Brisbee earlier about the changing face of baseball economics: In baseball, the best players are usually the cheapest players. This is a truism, and that sentence probably didn’t blow the minds of anyone reading this. It’s something we’ve internalized and accepted long ago.
