As you may or may not have noticed, I have not been around much lately. Do not worry (or for some of you, celebrate) because I am not going anywhere. I have just been a bit busy. Last year was probably the greatest year of my life. Not only did Continue reading This Spring Training Feels a Little Different
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 believe there is a lot of value in patience in all walks of life. Certainly there are times when you have to attack a task with a sense of urgency, as we are often on the clock and must meet deadlines, but patience and a good approach will often Continue reading The Value of Patience
The Chicago Cubs ended the “first half” with a record of 53-35, with a seven-game lead on the second-place St. Louis Cardinals after a much needed win against a resurgent Pittsburgh Pirates team. The winning tally came off a Kris Bryant hit that scored a speeding Matt Szczur from second Continue reading Pretty Good First Half…What’s Next For The Cubs?
It’s kind of weird how we always have to talk Cubs fans off the ledge, but here we go again after another tough loss. This for whatever reason reminds me of the Star Trek: The Next Generation episode entitled “A Matter of Perspective,” in which Commander Riker is accused of Continue reading The Month of June
Ivy isn’t feeling well these days so if you have a chance go find @Sweet_Loops and send well wishes. Which means you’re stuck with me for the time being… After a beatdown of sorts in Miami, the Chicago Cubs went to Cincinnati to face the Reds, a team they had Continue reading Ivy’s Roundup – Strange Things Are Happening (VIDEOS)
Okay, so before this Cardinals series started, I was interested in the Magic Number (which obviously is staying at 83 for now) and the fact that no matter what happens, the Cubs will continue to be the best team in both Major League Baseball and in the National League Central. Continue reading Ivy’s Roundup — At Least the Themed Road Trip Will Be Interesting!
Last time, when Ivy had time (no thanks to her coworker from Hell), we saw the Cubs win another series from the Philadelphia Phillies, so that was fun. This year, the NL East is pretty much just the Washington Nationals and New York Mets, and maybe the Miami Marlins if Continue reading Ivy’s Roundup – Finding Meaning In Small Samples (PLUS COOKIES)
1908, Black cats, Bartman…those are some of the many things that Cubs fans have heard over the years but this year’s Cubs are providing real hope and it’s very hard to find flaws in this team. With a 41-17 record, the Cubs have dominated in a lot of areas. It Continue reading Ivy’s Roundup – Cubs Getting Their Phil Of Victories
Let’s take a look at the very successful road trip the Cubs had vs. the Pirates: Cubs @ Pirates 5/2: W Cubs 7, Pirates 2 W: Hammel (4-0) L: Cole (2-3) What the teams were playing for might have been different from the last time the Pirates and Continue reading Ivy’s Roundup: The Pirates Walk the Plank
