When last we saw our heroes, the Chicago Cubs had gotten pretty much shut down by a very dominant Max Scherzer.  Fans cried in the streets and called for drastic changes as the Cubs were now only 24 games over .500 with a barely comfortable 8.5 game lead in the Continue reading The Cubs Lost a Game–WHAT DOES IT MEAN?!

You may be familiar with some of our previous work, what with Kris Bryant doing a Quantum Leap and my original goofball idea of Theo Epstein as Indiana Jones.  It’s been a while since I’ve had time to think about another one, what with school and life, but now that Continue reading Goatbusters – A Cubs Story In Pictures

The Chicago Cubs are much better than their record against bad teams would suggest, and they gave an old-fashioned ass-whupping to a bad team today as they pummeled the Atlanta Braves 13-2.  Bill Murray was at the series all weekend and had a blast, and I’m glad we as Cubs Continue reading Ever Wanted to See a Dominant Team?

While the Cubs were improving their sub-standard record against bad teams this weekend, the front office, especially the draft team, was busy scouting and securing new talent for the prospect pipeline to the Show.  The Cubs sat out the entire first day because they didn’t have first or second round picks Continue reading The 2016 Cubs Draft Results

He's gonna crush all the buildings with his giant souvenirs!

Games like last night are very disappointing. I understand why fans are upset and disappointed. Like you, I want to see them win every game they play, even though I know that is impossible. Teams like the San Diego Padres, Milwaukee Brewers and Atlanta Braves should be easy wins. Alas, Continue reading Cubs Record Against Bad Teams is 24-12? Not Bad At All

In the 31st round of last year’s draft, the Chicago Cubs drafted outfielder Daniel Spingola out of Georgia Tech. They had drafted him in the 2014 draft as well but he chose to stay at GT.   I’m old enough to be the mother of most of (okay all of) Continue reading South Bend Cubs: Conversation with a SB Cubs’ mom
