Off Day Cubs Highlight Reel

Share Button

It hasn’t been the best start of the 2018 season for our Chicago Cubs, but thanks to the availability of tanking teams, they were at least able to wake up some bats and at least temporarily right the ship. We will see how the Cubs decide to do against the Continue reading Off Day Cubs Highlight Reel

Share Button

Not much happening on this Cubs off day, so until they play again, we recorded the 40th iteration of our revived Dreamcast. Andy joined the party to talk shop as we await the coming resurgence… Disappointing early performances, but signs of positive things to come; What’s up with Yu Darvish?

Remembering Phil Cavarretta and the 1945 Season

Share Button

It was the spring of 1945 and another baseball season was right around the corner. This is typically a time of warmth, renewal and – for baseball fans – excitement. Yet this spring, Americans on the homefront were tired. Wearied from years of terrible war and from the ever present Continue reading Remembering Phil Cavarretta and the 1945 Season

Days Like These

  You may have noticed that between life, work, and coaching my own baseball team, there hasn’t been much in the way of content here lately. Of course, we’re still following the Cubs games, and while they are having their bouts of frustrating inconsistency, I think we all expect it Continue reading Days Like These

On a beautiful but cold day in Chicago, I watched my high school’s baseball team play superbly to notch their first victory of the season after many false starts and game postponements due to the ludicrous weather and other issues.  A few miles north, the Chicago Cubs also notched not Continue reading Sun’s Out, Fun’s Out

Inconsistency has been the theme of the season so far for the Chicago Cubs, which has contributed to plenty of fan frustration and the .500-ish record to this point.  Despite the fun times that the Cubs players have tried to give us, I can totally understand why the fans and Continue reading In Search of Consistency

Putting the Fun Back In Fundamentals

Share Button

It was a good baseball Friday night for the Chicago Cubs, powered by Javier Baez‘s four hits and baserunning magic: I think players like Javy are great for baseball, particularly in a time when the sport, despite record revenues, is skewing older and is working to recruit new, younger fans.  Continue reading Putting the Fun Back In Fundamentals

300 Already?

There were a few really good things that happened for the Chicago Cubs and their fans on Thursday.  We can start with the part where the weather actually didn’t suck and the Cubs got to play a baseball game in relatively mild conditions compared to their games on Hoth the Continue reading 300 Already?

Dreamcast 38: PPD

It’s been a while since we’ve done one of these due to busy schedules and the fact that a few games have gotten axed due to the weather.  I’m hopeful that with the weather supposed to improve soon, and with a still strong Cubs team that will find its groove Continue reading Dreamcast 38: PPD
