You may have noticed the paucity of content around these parts. I imagine that may explain the lack of hits on our trusty blog, as well as a steady exodus of followers as Facebook and Twitter start getting rid of bots (or maybe people are just tired of us, hehe), Continue reading Cubs Weekend Roundup

Sun’s Out, Fun’s Out

On a beautiful but cold day in Chicago, I watched my high school’s baseball team play superbly to notch their first victory of the season after many false starts and game postponements due to the ludicrous weather and other issues.  A few miles north, the Chicago Cubs also notched not Continue reading Sun’s Out, Fun’s Out

Dreamcast 39: Plan? What Plan?

After battling weather and life, Anno and Rice return to bring you a Dreamcast with not much more of a plan than just shooting the breeze after watching Kyle Schwarber do this… Ohio is for Schwarbers. pic.twitter.com/j8cHqU1mGq — Chicago Cubs (@Cubs) April 25, 2018 Talking about our confidence in the Continue reading Dreamcast 39: Plan?

In Search of Consistency

Inconsistency has been the theme of the season so far for the Chicago Cubs, which has contributed to plenty of fan frustration and the .500-ish record to this point.  Despite the fun times that the Cubs players have tried to give us, I can totally understand why the fans and Continue reading In Search of Consistency

A Different Brand of Frustration

Let’s be very honest.  The 2018 version of the Chicago Cubs has been an early disappointment, and it’s been a mystery as to why they have been so inconsistent given how good they are supposed to be on paper.  However, we then look at teams like the Giants and Dodgers, Continue reading A Different Brand of Frustration

World Series Rematch…During Spring Training

We got our first night time Chicago Cubs spring training game, and it happened to be televised on Wednesday night.  It’s been a busy week, with Yu Darvish‘s Cubs debut, Jon Lester‘s fun throwing issues, and learning about how fun spring training can be down in Arizona. The Cubs will Continue reading World Series Rematch…During Spring Training

This day has been marked on our calendar for some time, but the lead up to the Cactus League opener hasn’t seemed as tense given all the shenanigans that have transpired over the offseason.  However, now that we hear Len Kasper’s voice on GameDay Audio again, it is in fact Continue reading First Cubs Practice Game Done, Time For Overreactions

Dreamcast 31: I Also Like To Live Dangerously

Since our last Dreamcast, we were really hoping that the Cubs could get something going on the transactions front.  Alas, not only are the Cubs not doing much, neither is the rest of MLB.  So we wait…and talk about some stuff we’d like to see before the weekend’s Cubs Convention: Continue reading Dreamcast 31: I Also Like To Live Dangerously
