If I told you at the beginning of spring training that the Chicago Cubs would be playing November baseball, what would you say? Naturally, if they were going to play baseball in November, that would mean good things were happening, such as…forcing a Game Seven in the World Series against Continue reading Cubs World Series: Going the Distance

This is going to be short because I’m in need of a defibrillator, but remember when I said stuff about the Chicago Cubs making it to Game Seven?

Let’s dispense with the sugar-coating and just say that the Chicago Cubs are in a very bad place right now, with a 3-1 deficit in the World Series and an offense that is sputtering, to say the least.  Aside from their run in the opening inning and a Dexter Fowler Continue reading Cubs World Series Game 4: Hoping For a Game 7

I think I erred the other day in talking about the interesting bit of Chicago Cubs World Series history.  I did remark that Dexter Fowler was officially the first African-American Cubs player to play in a World Series game since he led off Game One.  That game was a bit Continue reading The Cubs’ World Series in Progress: Coming Home

The Chicago Cubs Will Make History

We have a few days to really enjoy the glorious reward of seeing our favorite baseball squadron finally obliterate narratives and have a shot at complete redemption.  The 71 years in between pennants certainly invokes the use of the word “history” in describing this momentous achievement, and while the young Continue reading The Chicago Cubs Will Make History
