Center Field and Depth Figure to Dominate Cubs Positional Off-Season

Although the Cubs enter the off-season with much more stability in the field than they do on the mound, they do enter the off-season with some questions that need answering.  Those questions, though, were mitigated by the 2015 performance of a handful of rookies and the emergence of Anthony Rizzo Continue reading

The Unfortunate Side Effect of Being Loaded


Wednesday afternoon, Chicago Cubs infield prospect Jeimer Candelario was voted into the final spot on the East Division squad for the Arizona Fall League’s Fall Stars Game.  This is quite a nice addition to the resume for Candelario, who has been quietly lighting it up in the Cubs’ lower minors as he’s Continue reading

Baseball into November, Cubs Still Working

From one of the Cubs' Instagrams, I'm sure.

It’s been an insane school year so far, with budget cuts and the science department shrinking from five teachers to just three to cover our four grade levels.  That meant that I had to take care of four different science electives, which, much to the chagrin of my entire family, Continue reading

Thank You Cubs


A few days have passed since the Chicago Cubs were swept out of the National League Championship Series, and I am in a good place. With a few days to collect my thoughts, and put the bitter taste out of my mouth I can fully appreciate how great the 2015 Continue reading
