I’m a bit bored, so I thought I’d just go to Baseball-Reference and check the standings as well as the longest losing streak for every MLB team…bear with me below. AL East: BAL – 4 games (in May) BOS – 3 games (5x) TOR – 5 games NYY – 6 Continue reading The Baseball Marathon

The Cubs’ Bert Campaneris, Revisited

Share

The last time we had this Bert Campaneris poll, Chicago Cubs fans (and whoever else happened upon our neck of the internet) voted overwhelmingly for super-utility guru Javier Baez, who received 56% of the vote.  This is certainly deserved, as Javy has been involved in some of the most spectacular Continue reading The Cubs’ Bert Campaneris, Revisited

The Cubs Lost a Game–WHAT DOES IT MEAN?!

When last we saw our heroes, the Chicago Cubs had gotten pretty much shut down by a very dominant Max Scherzer.  Fans cried in the streets and called for drastic changes as the Cubs were now only 24 games over .500 with a barely comfortable 8.5 game lead in the Continue reading The Cubs Lost a Game–WHAT DOES IT MEAN?!

You may be familiar with some of our previous work, what with Kris Bryant doing a Quantum Leap and my original goofball idea of Theo Epstein as Indiana Jones.  It’s been a while since I’ve had time to think about another one, what with school and life, but now that Continue reading Goatbusters – A Cubs Story In Pictures

Mere hours after the end of the 2016 MLB Draft and a great many fans freaking out because the Chicago Cubs lost to the Atlanta Braves, the Cubs remembered that they were good and pummeled the Braves.  Along the way, we had some fun times with the players, some visitors, Continue reading Fun at the Not-So-Old Ballpark

I got to go to Wrigley Field with a friend today for Jake Arrieta Day, but alas, it was not to be, as I am now 0-for-2 at Wrigley Field this season so far.  I probably shouldn’t be allowed to go to Cubs games anymore for the rest of the Continue reading Rationalizing Cubs Losses When They’re Up 9.5 Games In the Division

The senior class at my high school graduated today, and prior to the graduation ceremony downtown, some teachers and I went to a nearby pub for food and drinks.  It was also around the time that the Cubs game would be on, and so I asked the barkeeper to put Continue reading Watching the Cubs game at the bar — a story in tweets

After the Cubs won a silly game on Friday, coupled with some key division rivals losing their games later on that night, we find our favorite team still sitting on top of the baseball world with a commanding NL Central lead.  I’m going to Sunday’s game with a friend, for Jake Arrieta Continue reading The Cubs’ Bert Campaneris

I was at work following most of the Chicago Cubs victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks on GameDay, wondering when the offense would break through.  Of course, we know that they eventually did score all the runs.  There was also a pretty funny episode with Anthony Rizzo and former teammate Welington Continue reading Cubs Can Win At Silly Baseball, Too
