The Chicago Cubs just picked up win #30 on the season.  In so doing, they also made the Cardinals pitchers throw over 200 pitches right before getaway day, also known as Jake Arrieta Day.  Defense was the name of the game, and included one snazzy pick by Justin Grimm… Your Continue reading Back to Normal, Right?

If you’re just waking up, the Chicago Cubs FINALLY beat the Milwaukee Brewers in extra innings.  And per the box score, everyone pitched in.  And if the game had gone even further, you may have seen Jake Arrieta in left field with one of the position players still on the Continue reading Don’t Run on Grandpa Rossy and Other Cubs Items

While we continue to come to terms with the fact that the Chicago Cubs are very good at baseball, which is fine to be proud of, we must also remember that a big part of the reason they are so good is because of the people who make up the Continue reading Congrats, RizzO’s Winners!

By now you know that I went out with the family to watch Captain America: Civil War and am fully #TeamCap.  While we were in the theaters, the Chicago Cubs had their hands full with a very good Washington Nationals team, but as I came out of the theater after Continue reading Don’t Apologize For Feeling Good About the Cubs

As you are no doubt aware by now, the Chicago Cubs swept the Pittsburgh Pirates in their first series since the NL Wild Card game.  The box score has some very silly-looking slash lines and ERAs, and while the ERA isn’t the end-all/tell-all of Cubs pitching, it’s safe to say Continue reading Getting Into Their Heads

Every so often, even powerful juggernaut type teams will sputter.  I guess the best news for today’s game is that the Chicago Cubs fought back, generally played well except for a bad hiccup in one inning, and had a chance to win in their last at-bat if not for a Continue reading Quick Thoughts

On a day when the weather wasn’t at its best, and neither was the Chicago Cubs’ ace, our favorite team still found a way to win, and win big.  Jake Arrieta wasn’t his usual efficient self (can’t no-hit them all the time), walking four guys and throwing way too many Continue reading Enjoying the Ride
