Spring training means that not all games are televised, and with the way games are scheduled, also means I can’t get to all of them due to school.  So highlights for Monday are going to be scarce.  However, if you’re yearning for baseball action, check out Sunday’s highlights. As far Continue reading Cubs Practice: Crosstown Rivalry Far From Home (VIDEOS)

Ivy’s Roundup – Split Decision

Share Button

So we talked about the first 100 games, where the Chicago Cubs are 60-40.  Well, in game #101, they ended up splitting the series against the sorta-rival White Sox, and now the Cubs are 21 over .500, which is pretty good considering they didn’t get to that point last year Continue reading Ivy’s Roundup – Split Decision

The First 100 Games

One day after Aroldis Chapman officially arrived in Chicago after the big trade, the Chicago Cubs defeated their cross town rival Chicago White Sox to earn victory #60 on the season in 100 games.  This was a fun game late, as the Cubs were getting no-hit for the longest time Continue reading The First 100 Games

So at 59-38, the Chicago Cubs are the first to that mark, having achieved a 6-3 record coming out of the All-Star Break in winning all their series since that point.  With 65 games left, let’s say the Cubs win two of three from here on out…that’s another 44 wins Continue reading The Most Insufferable Time of the Year

Thanks to spring training and super-expanded rosters, we’re able to see a few split-squad games throughout the month of March.  The Chicago Cubs decided to start winning a few of these meaningless games to appease the more nervous of their fan base, dispatching their South Side neighbors in the early Continue reading Spring Training Is Supposed to be Fun

Amidst Uncertainty, Cubs Not Without Starting Options

Theo Epstein said it explicitly.  The Cubs are going to seek to add to their starting rotation.  And that makes sense for a lot of reasons.  The biggest reason is that there is no way in the world that they can go into the 2016 season and have the possibility Continue reading Amidst Uncertainty, Cubs Not Without Starting Options

Technically, I Think I Win the Bet…

Share Button

On a day where Chicago White Sox starter Chris Sale was cruising, there wasn’t much to be happy about in Cubs land, where our North Side heroes unfortunately fell victim to the buzz saw of strikeout after strikeout (a generous strike zone helped, but really, Sale was good).  Ultimately, the Continue reading Technically, I Think I Win the Bet…

Cubs Quotables

The Chicago Cubs again played slightly better than their South Side counterparts, winning Saturday night’s contest 6-3.  Post-game commentary is always fun, and particularly fun after a win with these Cubs. On the game as a whole: The game was really sloppy with a couple TOOTBLANs and a plethora of Continue reading Cubs Quotables

Pedro Strop can celebrate all he wants

The Chicago Cubs defeated their crosstown rivals Friday afternoon, and it seemed one of the items of conversation involved this celebration by Pedro Strop: Your browser does not support iframes. I think former Cubs legend John Baker said it best in his blog, but usually complaints about Pedro Strop (when Continue reading Pedro Strop can celebrate all he wants
