The Final Stretch

Share Button

Well well…remember what I said before the Cubs went off to Arizona? Right now, there is a 2.5 game NL Central lead with a magic number of 11. Just get to Thursday without anyone else getting hurt and with at least that lead intact, and I believe the Cubs are Continue reading The Final Stretch

That Elusive Off Day

Share Button

I realize that everything is terrible these days (whether we’re talking about the Chicago Cubs or real life), but I think the fact that the Cubs are still projected to make the playoffs is good news. I doubt the odds have changed much since the Sunday loss (they did win Continue reading That Elusive Off Day

The Remains of the Season

Since the Cubs won their getaway game against the Milwaukee Brewers and have a four-game cushion in the NL Central before heading to Washington to battle the slightly torn down but still not that bad Nationals, I thought I’d update from the previous blog and check on the outlook as Continue reading The Remains of the Season

Never Tell Me the Odds!

The job hunt is going along, but I sure would enjoy having a few more interviews and maybe even an offer or two. Anyway, life is no excuse for not updating this blog, so I thought I would at least talk about the odds… As of today (Tuesday 9/4), the Continue reading Never Tell Me the Odds!

Welcome to September

The Cubs, just like all of MLB, took advantage of the changing of the calendar and roster rules: The #Cubs today announced the following roster moves: INFs Kris Bryant & Addison Russell activated from 10-day DLRHP James Norwood recalled from @IowaCubsOF Terrance Gore and C Taylor Davis selected from Triple-ARHP Continue reading Welcome to September

The Cubs’ Full House

Share Button

The Chicago Cubs will be home for the majority of the remainder of the 2018 season, which on the surface should be good for them to secure another NL Central division title. The recent trade for Daniel Murphy reminded me of when they traded for Aroldis Chapman for the stretch Continue reading The Cubs’ Full House

#FlyTheW Across the USA

It’s been a while since I’ve had a chance to blog, what with moving across the country and all. I still stand by my original statement that the Cubs should be able to navigate their schedule well despite their recent hiccups, but of course they will have to play hard Continue reading #FlyTheW Across the USA

Home Cooking

Well, here we are in August, and we are stuck in Lincoln, Nebraska, because the stupid car decided to run into a mechanical problem. Thankfully it’s not the engine this time! It’s kind of funny how we are saying goodbye to Chicago just as the Cubs return home for seemingly Continue reading Home Cooking

Cubs Trade for Brandon Kintzler

Share Button

With Brandon Morrow on the disabled list again, there was a blaring need for the Chicago Cubs to trade for a closer, which they did in the form of Brandon Kintzler from the Washington Nationals as reported by Ken Rosenthal. #Cubs close to getting Brandon Kintzler from #Nationals, sources tell Continue reading Cubs Trade for Brandon Kintzler

Goodbye, Chicago

Share Button

Okay, folks. Within hours of you guys reading this, I will be traveling west towards California. I’ll do my best to keep listening and following Cubs games on The Score as long as the signal holds, but eventually I will have to let go of that one, too. In addition Continue reading Goodbye, Chicago
