It’s been a while (more than four months) since we’ve done one of these, but what an incredible four months it has been!  The Cubs, as you know, are heading to the playoffs, and with that we’re seeing fans talk about signs, make new music, and show a ton of Continue reading Dreamcast 50: Unlike Dan Haren, We’re Not Retiring Just Yet

Dreamcast 49 (not 48): Rice is an Idiot

concept4
Share Button

Alright, so I failed hard there because I forgot to put Episode 48 (see here) in the “Podcast” category, and mistakenly thought we were on 48 instead of 49. That’s pretty much Carlos Marmol, I guess, in that vintage Marmol would get himself in trouble and get himself out. I Continue reading Dreamcast 49 (not 48): Rice is an Idiot

Dreamcast 48: Walk the Plank

As we finish up the first two weeks of the season and start week three (against the Pittsburgh Pirates, read Ivy’s roundup for a preview of the pitching matchups!), it seems like a good time to celebrate a Cubs victory with another Dreamcast.  This is the 48th edition, and we Continue reading Dreamcast 48: Walk the Plank

Dreamcast 47: Cubs Win!

Hey guys!  It’s Rice 1, Anno 0 for Team WSD Cubs games!  Woo! Yeah, the Chicago Cubs defeated the St. Louis Cardinals in the opening series finale, temporarily tying the series until the rainout is made up sometime later (not a terrible thing).  Thanks to Ed Nickow for giving Rice Continue reading Dreamcast 47: Cubs Win!

Dreamcast 46: We’re Back For Opening Night!

So hey guys!  It’s been pretty much all winter since we did this last (see the date for #45), and being that we’re on the cusp of Opening Night at Wrigley Field, seems like a good time to dust off the old microphone and give the Dreamcast another go.  Since Continue reading Dreamcast 46: We’re Back For Opening Night!

Dreamcast 45: The Offseason Cometh

It’s been FOREVER since we’ve done one of these, and since it’s #45, we’ll dedicate it to Sean Marshall, the former Cubs legend, who got us a useful though flawed piece in Travis Wood and who we hope will bounce back from injury to have a good walk year in Continue reading Dreamcast 45: The Offseason Cometh

Dreamcast 44: August Musings

We dedicate this edition of the Dreamcast to Anthony Rizzo, the All-Star, would-be Gold Glove first baseman who probably has an outside shot at 40 homers this year especially with a trip to Colorado coming up.  But this podcast isn’t all about Rizzo…oh no, it’s about someone who will eventually Continue reading Dreamcast 44: August Musings

Dreamcast 43: The John Grabow Will Never Happen Again Edition

It’s been a while since we’ve done one of these so we’re kind of rusty.  This is the 43rd edition of the Dreamcast, right after a huge trade but still before the non-waiver trade deadline.  We’ll do another one after the major trades are completed and we’ll see whether the Continue reading Dreamcast 43: The John Grabow Will Never Happen Again Edition

Dreamcast 42: A Whole Bunch of Whatever

Hard to believe we’re at #42, and since we’re here at the answer to the meaning of life, we salute Jackie Robinson, the most influential player to ever wear the number.  Ever since Mariano Rivera retired, no player in baseball will ever wear #42 again. This next edition of the Continue reading Dreamcast 42: A Whole Bunch of Whatever

On this Mother’s Day, we give to you a podcast after a long hiatus (yeah, we’ve been busy) named in honor of former Cubs manager Lou Piniella who wore the number 41.  Here’s some fun news about former Cubs reliever/closer/fan pinata Carlos Marmol (who actually does autocorrect to “Marmot“):   Continue reading Dreamcast 41: The Sweet Lou Edition
