Wow!  We have just hit 3000 downloads of this latest iteration of our Dreamcast.  It’d be nifty if you guys could write in and/or rate us on iTunes, but I’m definitely glad some of you are actually listening, even if it’s just a few seconds before you realize that you’d Continue reading Dreamcast 30: All I Want For Christmas is Yu

The Journey Continues For a Former Cub (UPDATE)

Share Button

Part of the problem with doing a podcast during the winter hot stove (or any hot stove for that matter) is that two hours after it’s posted, the news is already outdated because the New York Yankees decide to do something to increase their home run production: Source: Giancarlo Stanton Continue reading The Journey Continues For a Former Cub (UPDATE)

Back On Track? We Shall See

I suppose it helps that the Cubs got to play the shell of the New York Mets this series, but a series win certainly helps keep them in first place and also watch their magic number keep shrinking as more matchups against their closest rivals loom.  It’s certainly a far Continue reading Back On Track?

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 – Winning More Than You Lose, Tradez & Videoz

Let’s just get to the scores first as the Chicago Cubs looked pretty good coming out of the All-Star Break.  Maybe they just needed a breather after all?  And this, again, is without two of their key bats in Dexter Fowler and Jorge Soler, who are with the Iowa Cubs Continue reading Ivy’s Roundup – Winning More Than You Lose, Tradez & Videoz

More Fun With Kyle Schwarber, and Thoughts On Base Coaching

The Chicago Cubs avenged some of their more recent losses against the New York Mets with a solid victory Monday night.  It was a very enjoyable game with decent pitching, timely hitting, and good defense.  It’s almost as if the Cubs are good at baseball. In the game, Kyle Schwarber, Continue reading More Fun With Kyle Schwarber, and Thoughts On Base Coaching

Fun Times With Kyle Schwarber

I think the more favorable news of Sunday’s game is that the Chicago Cubs would win the series against the Texas Rangers, and they would not be no-hit or shut out by Cole Hamels.  Let’s get away from that though, because there are plenty of contests left and the Cubs and Continue reading Fun Times With Kyle Schwarber

Off Day Thinks & Videos

Yesterday, the Chicago Cubs were defeated by the Boston Red Sox in the 2016 All-Star Game, which means that to clinch the World Series at home, the Cubs will have to beat the Red Sox (or the Cleveland Indians, maybe) in five games come October.  But we’re looking way too Continue reading Off Day Thinks & Videos

Life and Baseball

It goes without saying that ever since the calendar turned to June, Chicago Cubs fans have been a bit antsy because the team simply hasn’t been playing all that well.  I told Ivy not to bother recapping the last week of disappointment because like manager Joe Maddon keeps telling his Continue reading Life and Baseball

Making Fun Out of Nothing At All

Bad games happen, and yeah, for the Chicago Cubs, it’s happened a lot more than we’d like in this recent stretch.  But as the first 81 games are done, the Cubs are still OK record-wise, and will work to address the issues that we’ve observed during their prolonged slump.  Since Continue reading Making Fun Out of Nothing At All
