As we inch closer to when pitchers and catchers report everyone is getting excited to see what will happen for our Defending World Series Champion Chicago Cubs. Talk about an amazing time at the end of the 2016 baseball season. I was fortunate to be able to go to one Continue reading The Cubs’ Title Defense
Aside from a surprise pitching acquisition or two (UPDATE: not Tyson Ross), the Chicago Cubs don’t have much else to do before the Cubs Convention starting Friday. Most of the team that won the World Series remains intact, all a year older, and while some will likely be on the Continue reading Cubs Business As The Convention Begins (UPDATES)

With three straight home games coming up at Wrigley Field, the Cubs are in Continue reading Cubs World Series Recap So Far…
I think I erred the other day in talking about the interesting bit of Chicago Cubs World Series history. I did remark that Dexter Fowler was officially the first African-American Cubs player to play in a World Series game since he led off Game One. That game was a bit Continue reading The Cubs’ World Series in Progress: Coming Home
