One last time for Rice at Wrigley Field before the big move to California. We do talk a bit about the Bobblehead Day and some exploits by a certain Cub, but you’re probably wondering how to win Anno’s spare Wrigley scoreboard clock. To do so, listen to this Dreamcast and Continue reading Dreamcast 44: Goes Both Ways
This game was many months in the planning, so it was nice to get the bobblehead we’ve been waiting for ever since the Cubs promotional schedule came out. This wouldn’t have been much more than another bobblehead day, but for me, it was the last time I would be at Continue reading One Last Romp At Wrigley
Well well, we made it! As the Cubs go from a limp to a surge into the All-Star Break, they find themselves in sole possession of first place at least through next weekend with a surprisingly comfortable 2.5 game NL Central lead after the Milwaukee Brewers took a massive dump Continue reading Midseason Cubs Audit
Remember Jurassic Park? The book, actually, not the movie. Within the book (which was better than the movie, which was already very good, in my opinion), the character of Ian Malcolm is a mathematician who specializes in chaos theory. He models real-world systems using a tool called fractals, which take Continue reading Getting Back on Track?
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
It hasn’t been the best start of the 2018 season for our Chicago Cubs, but thanks to the availability of tanking teams, they were at least able to wake up some bats and at least temporarily right the ship. We will see how the Cubs decide to do against the Continue reading Off Day Cubs Highlight Reel
It sure does look decent out right now and most likely the Chicago Cubs will finally get to play another game tonight. Not so sure about Wednesday, when it’s supposed to rain, but who knows with Mother Nature and what the home club will decide? A handful of games have Continue reading The Scheduling Probably Won’t Change Anytime Soon, But We Can Still Think About It
I don’t think there’s really anyone to blame for the terrible weather that’s been causing games to be postponed lately. Maybe we could blame humanity in general for messing with the climate and potentially causing much more rain and snow than we normally would see around this time. But honestly, Continue reading The Slow Road to 162
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
I’m pretty sure the Cubs are glad that they are going to their actual home soon, but it’s nice to know that they can play in front of a home crowd even in another state. Between all the sniping on social media between the two teams and their fanbases, the Continue reading Better to be Lucky AND Good!
