The Deep Freeze

Share Button

Appropriately, Chicago is about to experience its own blend of snowmageddon as a heavy snow storm is heading into the area. I get to stay home as school has been canceled for Friday, but I’d definitely prefer staying home with some news to report.  Alas, MLB continues to operate in Continue reading The Deep Freeze

The M’s vs the B’s

Share Button

Over the past couple months, the baseball hot stove has been colder than the proverbial iceberg.  Multiple factors have led to just as many arguments on baseball Twitter, not to mention the developing standoff between the players and MLB.  The standoff thus far is focused on the immediate topic at Continue reading The M’s vs the B’s

Choosing a 2018 Cubs Game to Attend Based On the Promotional Schedule

Share Button

Last year, my family and I went to the one Cubs game based on the 2017 promotional schedule.  The game itself wasn’t all that fun, but we did score a sweet Bryzzo World Series bobblehead. The promotional schedule for 2018, a year we hope the Cubs return to the Fall Continue reading Choosing a 2018 Cubs Game to Attend Based On the Promotional Schedule

Gifs to Make Us Cubs Fans Happy

While we Cubs fans wait for our favorite team to do something already (or maybe they don’t have to, because the roster is pretty solid anyway), let’s harken back to a time, not so long ago, when the Cubs were on top of the world. I’m sure these gifs are Continue reading Gifs to Make Us Cubs Fans Happy

The Waiting Game

Share Button

In a time when the temperature here in Chicago is lower than some parts of Alaska and Greenland, we sure could use some hot stove action.  Alas, nothing has really happened for the Cubs or most other MLB clubs since before Christmas, and we can’t exactly make up news where Continue reading The Waiting Game

Things You Should Read From WSD, 2017 Edition

Share Button

The big news before the New Year’s weekend was that former Chicago Cubs closer Wade Davis has decided to sign with the Colorado Rockies.  I’m not entirely sure, but I do believe the Rockies know they play on the moon, and are ready to just outslug their competition at home Continue reading Things You Should Read From WSD, 2017 Edition

Happy Christmas, Cubs Edition

Share Button

I’m looking forward to two full weeks of having to do nearly nothing except spending time with my family and relaxing during the holiday season.  I suppose if you’re a big nerd like me, you will also be looking forward to the Doctor Who Christmas Special, in which Peter Capaldi Continue reading Happy Christmas, Cubs Edition

Cubs and Baseball Thinks Since the Last Time We Blogged

Share Button

The Los Angeles Dodgers and Houston Astros had themselves a ridiculous, possibly juiced-baseball-enhanced, slugfest in Game Five of the World Series on Sunday night, which really messed with my sleep patterns and made for a very entertaining set of highlights.  In between the Crawford Box homers that are just popups Continue reading Cubs and Baseball Thinks Since the Last Time We Blogged

A Fungus Among Us? Or, How a Chicago Hotel Helped the Cubs in Potentially Dastardly Ways

I was hoping by the time I got home from work that I’d be able to tell you fine folks whether the Cubs had clinched a berth in the NLCS, or if they have to go back to DC for a winner-take-all Game 5.  I suppose our latest Dreamcast is Continue reading A Fungus Among Us?
