Dreamcast 29: Didn’t We Almost Have It All

Share Button

In this episode right before the Winter Meetings, Rice and Anno talk about the craziness before the craziness… The highly coveted Shohei Ohtani has signed, but not with the Cubs…alas. The nearly as coveted Giancarlo Stanton is holding the Marlins up until he gets to go where he wants to Continue reading Dreamcast 29: Didn’t We Almost Have It All

Someday Giancarlo Stanton Will Escape Miami

Share Button

The Cubs are laying low for the time being in advance of the Winter Meetings and Friday’s contract tender announcements, and are likely going to be in on the Shohei Ohtani sweepstakes.  It’s hard to know when the first major domino will drop, as I believe most teams are trying Continue reading Someday Giancarlo Stanton Will Escape Miami

Cubs and Baseball Thinks Since the Last Time We Blogged

Share Button

The Los Angeles Dodgers and Houston Astros had themselves a ridiculous, possibly juiced-baseball-enhanced, slugfest in Game Five of the World Series on Sunday night, which really messed with my sleep patterns and made for a very entertaining set of highlights.  In between the Crawford Box homers that are just popups Continue reading Cubs and Baseball Thinks Since the Last Time We Blogged

The End of the Season, But Not the End of the Line for These Cubs

Share Button

When the Cubs avoided the sweep, I had hoped that they could force the NLCS to go back to Los Angeles before a near inevitable elimination.  Alas, it was not to be in 2017, as the 0-3 deficit proved too much to overcome. It wasn’t just the series deficit, but Continue reading The End of the Season, But Not the End of the Line for These Cubs

Left For Dead, Cubs Show Signs of Life

Perhaps it was because of the grind from having to battle the Washington Nationals to the brink last week, but the Chicago Cubs have not been playing well all series long as they went down 0-3 in the NLCS.  This is, of course, their third NLCS in a row, and Continue reading Left For Dead, Cubs Show Signs of Life

The 2017 Postseason is Set

Share Button

We as Cubs fans have been relaxing all weekend, but there will be very little suspense on Sunday, and no game 163 this year.  That’s because on Saturday night, the seedings were officially decided, and Sunday’s games are just for the fans now. In the American League, because the Houston Continue reading The 2017 Postseason is Set

Dreamcast 11: Stay Classy

Share Button

This episode, with Anno and Andy not available due to Rice’s stupid schedule, good ol’ Dabynsky (follow him @dabynsky) came along to guest host.  We also got Ryan Davis (@RyanQDavis) to hang out as well.  This session was so big and long (huh huh huh) that we had to split Continue reading Dreamcast 11: Stay Classy

Early Season Schedule Not Cutting Struggling Cubs Any Breaks

Share Button

The Cubs aren’t playing well.  Nobody is going to say anything different.  It’s actually pretty obvious.  And there is no question that is the single biggest contributing factor to their slow start, sitting just one game above .500 through 49 games.  Some key offensive contributors haven’t produced like they’re capable. Continue reading Early Season Schedule Not Cutting Struggling Cubs Any Breaks

So Much Cubs Glory For Those Times You’re Bored

Share Button

There were something like 16 billion articles written on the Chicago Cubs’ 2016 World Series championship run, and while those are all nice, sometimes you need to watch the highlights and relive the glory.  And if you’re in a long stretch between games, or you don’t find certain sporting events Continue reading So Much Cubs Glory For Those Times You’re Bored

Cubs Practice: Respect Bald

Share Button

Saturday was the Respect Bald event that Joe Maddon sponsors to raise money for pediatric cancer research.  It seemed that the players really got into it, as well as plenty of Chicago Cubs fans who wanted to give back to the community while getting a buzz cut. A bittersweet day. Continue reading Cubs Practice: Respect Bald
