As the Chicago Cubs bid farewell to Wrigley Field for the regular season (don’t worry, they’ve already clinched and all that), we woke up to very sad news as Miami Marlins All-Star pitcher Jose Fernandez tragically passed: pic.twitter.com/youGWMvZtr — WorldSeriesDreaming (@WSDreaming_Cubs) September 25, 2016 The news, pictures, gifs, and tributes Continue reading The Enjoyment of Life

On the final regular season Chicago Cubs game to be called by Vin Scully, the Cubs were able to survive a few frustrating innings against Dodgers spot starter Brock Stewart, but the Dodger were able to finally break through and win the series. The Cubs did end up winning the Continue reading Magical Cubs Season Check-In

The Juggernaut Unleashed

Coming into this series against the St. Louis Cardinals, the Chicago Cubs had already shown some signs of dominance, and I guess we’re being a bit humble with that understatement.  But I guess we didn’t really expect Friday’s destruction of their opponent, even as we realized that the Cubs were Continue reading The Juggernaut Unleashed

A Nice Day For Cubs and Baseball

With Sunday’s victory, the Chicago Cubs scored their second straight series sweep, and in doing so, have picked up a nice win total: That’s right!  The Cubs are now 69-41 and a high-water mark of 28 games over .500 this season.  The game included a pretty solid performance from Jorge Soler, Continue reading A Nice Day For Cubs and Baseball

Three days after a pretty slick walkoff victory, the Chicago Cubs were at it again. That was a fun ending, eh #Cubs fans? https://t.co/IPJfarUOyw — WorldSeriesDreaming (@WSDreaming_Cubs) August 3, 2016 You would think that a 3-run lead with a solid closer on the mound would be bad news, and historically Continue reading The Wild Walk Off, No Haircuts

Boy oh boy, where to begin… July (and the end of June, really) wasn’t the best for the Chicago Cubs, but everything was going to look poor relative to the extremely good start to the season.  As August (and the trade deadline!) is Monday, the Cubs ended July with their Continue reading Walkoff a Winner

There was a rain-delayed game on Friday, which many of you saw, as the Chicago Cubs opened up their interleague series against the visiting Seattle Mariners with a laugher of a victory.  Sprinkled into those 12 runs was a Jason Heyward homer (it totally happened) and some other very timely Continue reading Silly Cubs Play of The Day

The Chicago Cubs avenged some of their more recent losses against the New York Mets with a solid victory Monday night.  It was a very enjoyable game with decent pitching, timely hitting, and good defense.  It’s almost as if the Cubs are good at baseball. In the game, Kyle Schwarber, Continue reading More Fun With Kyle Schwarber, and Thoughts On Base Coaching

Fun Times With Kyle Schwarber

I think the more favorable news of Sunday’s game is that the Chicago Cubs would win the series against the Texas Rangers, and they would not be no-hit or shut out by Cole Hamels.  Let’s get away from that though, because there are plenty of contests left and the Cubs and Continue reading Fun Times With Kyle Schwarber

It goes without saying that ever since the calendar turned to June, Chicago Cubs fans have been a bit antsy because the team simply hasn’t been playing all that well.  I told Ivy not to bother recapping the last week of disappointment because like manager Joe Maddon keeps telling his Continue reading Life and Baseball
