If I told you that on August 24, the Chicago Cubs would be the best team in baseball with 81 wins, miles ahead of every other team in the National League, and all of Major League Baseball, you’d be okay with this, right? Well, after escaping the baseball black hole Continue reading The Cubs Won’t Be a Losing Team This Year

Welp!  Even if the series had turned out differently I guess I would have still used this silly movie reference.  Actually, the movie was bad, sure, but it was FUN bad!  Sort of like Sunday, when all you could do was laugh it off. It wasn’t the easy series we Continue reading Ivy’s Roundup — Wild Wild West

As we sit in a rain delay and wait anxiously for another Chicago Cubs game to begin (they’re in Denver to take on the Colorado Rockies), it bears repeating how well Theo Epstein and Jed Hoyer have constructed this roster, and how well manager Joe Maddon has maximized matchups to Continue reading The Cubs’ Science Experiment

Ah, so since the LAST time we blogged up a recap, it appears that the Chicago Cubs have continued their winning ways.  This included a series split (with two very annoying losses at the tail end of the series) with the St. Louis Cardinals, and a just-completed sweep of the Continue reading Ivy’s Roundup — The Cubs Season Is Miraculously Not Over

Tommy La Stella To Report To Double-A

From @Cubs

No productive major leaguer ever wants to be sent down to the minor leagues, especially one on a winning team. The Chicago Cubs are having an amazing season, owning the best record in baseball at 76-43. They are being led by MVP contenders Kris Bryant and Anthony Rizzo, but this Continue reading Tommy La Stella To Report To Double-A

The Juggernaut Unleashed

Coming into this series against the St. Louis Cardinals, the Chicago Cubs had already shown some signs of dominance, and I guess we’re being a bit humble with that understatement.  But I guess we didn’t really expect Friday’s destruction of their opponent, even as we realized that the Cubs were Continue reading The Juggernaut Unleashed

Two young Chicago Cub superstars are front and center in the battle for the National League MVP award. In the National League to this point, it’s a three-horse race, and two of them play at Wrigley Field: Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo and third baseman/outfielder Kris Bryant. They’re also joined by Nationals second Continue reading Rizzo and Bryant Are Battling For National League MVP

Alright, it’s the start of the school year and we’re all busy these days, so you’re not going to get recaps and stuff as often.  Unless, of course, a breaking news story happens during one of my rare prep periods or before or after school, then you’ll get a time Continue reading Ivy’s Roundup – The American League West is Turrible

With Sunday’s victory, the Chicago Cubs scored their second straight series sweep, and in doing so, have picked up a nice win total: That’s right!  The Cubs are now 69-41 and a high-water mark of 28 games over .500 this season.  The game included a pretty solid performance from Jorge Soler, Continue reading A Nice Day For Cubs and Baseball

It’s been a while since we did any series recaps, and since it’s Friday night and I just got back from a softball game and Ivy is busy, I’ll just sum it up by saying that the Chicago Cubs are good at baseball.  We can do this super quick… Seattle Continue reading Ivy’s Roundup – Walking Off Into a Bigger Division Lead
