While we sit at home watching the Cubs try to win another home series, Anno is enjoying his season tickets at the Friendly Confines.  I asked him to snap a few pictures since I won’t likely be there until late May or June at the earliest.  Maybe next time he’ll Continue reading Views of Wrigley Field

Okay, so how about we don’t count Thursday & Friday? Let’s call them a simulation of what baseball in December would be like and just start the “real” season with Sunday’s win at West Michigan. Are we all on the same page? Great. So here’s what happened:     On Thursday, Continue reading South Bend Cubs: Okay, who pissed off Mother Nature?
