If I told you that on August 24, the Chicago Cubs would be the best team in baseball with 81 wins, miles ahead of every other team in the National League, and all of Major League Baseball, you’d be okay with this, right? Well, after escaping the baseball black hole Continue reading The Cubs Won’t Be a Losing Team This Year
Coming into this series against the St. Louis Cardinals, the Chicago Cubs had already shown some signs of dominance, and I guess we’re being a bit humble with that understatement. But I guess we didn’t really expect Friday’s destruction of their opponent, even as we realized that the Cubs were Continue reading The Juggernaut Unleashed
The Chicago Cubs ended the “first half” with a record of 53-35, with a seven-game lead on the second-place St. Louis Cardinals after a much needed win against a resurgent Pittsburgh Pirates team. The winning tally came off a Kris Bryant hit that scored a speeding Matt Szczur from second Continue reading Pretty Good First Half…What’s Next For The Cubs?

There are all kinds of opinions about how this exhibition game should not determine World Series home field advantage (an opinion shared by Ben Zobrist), or that certain Continue reading The 2016 All-Stars

The Chicago Cubs are currently 35-15 after finishing up both April and May. Dabynsky over at Cubs Den has compiled a nice potpourri of stats to show how good the Cubs are right now, and eventually he’ll do it over here (PHRASING) but who knows with that guy. I decided Continue reading Two Months In…How Do the Cubs Look?
It was a fun series in St. Louis and the Cubs were able to leave with a series win. Let’s hope the Blackhawks have the same luck tonight against the Blues. Let’s look at the recap vs. the Cardinals: Cubs @ Cardinals 4/18: W Cubs 5, Cardinals 0 W: Continue reading Ivy’s Roundup: A Sweep Would’ve Been Nice, But Whatever
The Chicago Cubs blitzed through their first nine games without much trouble before suffering an uncharacteristically bad defeat against the Colorado Rockies on Friday afternoon.
