The Called Shot

Share Button

It wasn’t exactly the shot that won the game for the Chicago Cubs, and in doing so clinched the series and advanced them to the NLCS, but it certainly made things easier for Hector Rondon.  I’m talking about Kyle Schwarber calling his shot: Haha Fowler said Schwarber called his shot.

That Felt Great!

Going into this year, if they were honest, most Chicago Cubs fans would have told you that they would have been happy with a .500 record after three years of crap. At 97 wins, the Cubs fans considered this a “bonus year” as they were assumed to have arrived into Continue reading That Felt Great!

That was FUN

Hey kids!  The Chicago Cubs are leading the NLDS 2-1 over the Cardinals now!  On a night when Jake Arrieta wasn’t exactly at his best, the offense exploded for an 8-6 victory while holding back a late charge by the Cards.  In this victory, the Cubs set a new postseason Continue reading That was FUN

The Art of the Slide

Seems like this has become a huge issue so far this season for the MLB. I feel like it has been more hurtful this year than many of the years before. Sliding into second to break up a double play has brought down a few players so far. I mean Continue reading The Art of the Slide

Back to Wrigley

Well what a good Sunday morning it is. Cubs are tied 1-1 with the Cardinals and they are riding a huge high of winning on the road and coming home to the dominant Jake Arrieta. I could not be more happy. Last nights game was a huge turn in the Continue reading Back to Wrigley

So…I’m happy

OK, so the Chicago Cubs are now tied with the St. Louis Cardinals at a game apiece heading back to Wrigley Field and Jake Arrieta Day on Monday.  I figured that this would happen, even if Kyle Hendricks didn’t do as well as I had hoped, although he looked good Continue reading So…I’m happy

Things I think I think (Cubs vs. Cards edition)

Share Button

The series opener didn’t go the Chicago Cubs’ way, but that doesn’t mean they’ll be shut down forever.  As awesome as it would be, it’s highly improbable that any team will win all their games, especially in the postseason when every team is theoretically good at baseball.  Anyway, we have Continue reading Things I think I think (Cubs vs. Cards edition)

Oh, What a Night

Well I can honestly say I do not think I took a breath on October 7th without thinking about the game. Naturally I was nervous, but who wasn’t? I mean I am confident with Arrieta on the bump, but still I get weird about these things so I worried. Well, Continue reading Oh, What a Night

Goodbye Pittsburgh, Hello St. Louis

Last night, the Chicago Cubs won the National League Wild Card over the Pittsburgh Pirates. While Jake Arrieta shutdown the Pirates offense, this was a complete team win filled with many highlights. Kyle Schwarber did not waste any time getting the Cubs on the board in the first, then padding Continue reading Goodbye Pittsburgh, Hello St. Louis

Highlights from the first Cubs postseason win in a while (yes, it counts)

Share Button

The Chicago Cubs have won their first postseason game since 2003.  It was a nice game to listen to on the radio (darn lack of cable) but thank goodness for highlights!  It’s too bad they didn’t embed the solid defensive plays, (there were more) but we got the fireworks… Kyle Continue reading Highlights from the first Cubs postseason win in a while (yes, it counts)
