Share Button

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

In Which the Cubs Have to Reflect On Their (Lack of) Actions

Share Button

It’s been a month since this one, but the Chicago Cubs continue to ride the feast-or-famine roller coaster that Jeff Samardzija once alluded to. It’s a load of fun when the Cubs score runs in buckets; it’s not so fun when they can’t even plate one after almost getting no-hit.

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!

I want to begin this by remarking at how on the ball most of us were about the roster and lineup as the Chicago Cubs cruised into Opening Day against the Miami Marlins.  I decided to do some grading while watching the game at home, so the good things happening Continue reading Opening Day Cubs Highlight Reel

We got our first night time Chicago Cubs spring training game, and it happened to be televised on Wednesday night.  It’s been a busy week, with Yu Darvish‘s Cubs debut, Jon Lester‘s fun throwing issues, and learning about how fun spring training can be down in Arizona. The Cubs will Continue reading World Series Rematch…During Spring Training

If you missed it earlier, Jon Lester was named the Opening Day starter, although Joe Maddon hasn’t committed to a rotation yet. Continue reading Cubs Spring Highlights While You Were At Work
