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

The Cubs Should Probably Just Skip the All-Star Game…(POLL)

Share Button

Now that we are in the second half (sort of, since the All-Star Game hasn’t happened yet), the Chicago Cubs are 1-0 and on pace to run the table.  They’ll enter the Monday off-day before the Fourth of July just two games back of the Milwaukee Brewers, and having achieved Continue reading The Cubs Should Probably Just Skip the All-Star Game…(POLL)

Summer Solstice-ish Cubs Highlight Reel

Share Button

Yeah, we’re a couple days after the actual solstice.  But it was a nice day, school is out, there’s a lull in the job hunt, and the Chicago Cubs activated beatdown mode, so here ya go. First of all, welcome to the big leagues, Mark Zagunis: The #Cubs today made Continue reading Summer Solstice-ish Cubs Highlight Reel

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.

Ivy’s Roundup – Walking Off Into a Bigger Division Lead

Share Button

It’s been a while since we did any series recaps, and since it’s Friday night and I just got back from a softball game and Ivy is busy, I’ll just sum it up by saying that the Chicago Cubs are good at baseball.  We can do this super quick… Seattle Continue reading Ivy’s Roundup – Walking Off Into a Bigger Division Lead

The Wild Walk Off, No Haircuts

Share Button

Three days after a pretty slick walkoff victory, the Chicago Cubs were at it again. That was a fun ending, eh #Cubs fans? https://t.co/IPJfarUOyw — WorldSeriesDreaming (@WSDreaming_Cubs) August 3, 2016 You would think that a 3-run lead with a solid closer on the mound would be bad news, and historically Continue reading The Wild Walk Off, No Haircuts

Ivy’s Roundup – The M*A*S*H Unit

Share Button

As we all know (or should, anyway), the baseball season is a marathon, not a sprint.  The Chicago Cubs got out to a spectacular start, but have hit a speed bump given all the injuries that have cropped up, not to mention how HARD it is to sustain a crazy Continue reading Ivy’s Roundup – The M*A*S*H Unit

Ivy’s Roundup — At Least the Themed Road Trip Will Be Interesting!

Share Button

Okay, so before this Cardinals series started, I was interested in the Magic Number (which obviously is staying at 83 for now) and the fact that no matter what happens, the Cubs will continue to be the best team in both Major League Baseball and in the National League Central. Continue reading Ivy’s Roundup — At Least the Themed Road Trip Will Be Interesting!

The Cubs Are Good People

As the Chicago Cubs get back to the level of success we’ve recently come to expect, I have to reflect on how lucky we as Cubs fans are to have some of the best people in the sport working to improve and sustain the team we all love.  Since the Continue reading The Cubs Are Good People

Amidst Uncertainty, Cubs Not Without Starting Options

Share Button

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
