NLCS Game 4: The Rumors of Cubs Demise Were Greatly Exaggerated

Share Button

After Tuesday night’s offensive fail, it was understandable that Cubs fans would be jumping off the ledges and portending doom for this overrated team. What fans, media, and everyone else kind of forgot was that this same team was the one that racked up 103 victories over the regular season, Continue reading NLCS Game 4: The Rumors of Cubs Demise Were Greatly Exaggerated

NLCS Game 3: Mad

Share Button

Tuesday night was supposed to be different.  The Cubs were supposed to tee off on former Cubs pitcher Rich Hill, who magically figured out how to pitch well late in his career.  It didn’t happen. Jake Arrieta was supposed to throw a no-hitter.  Didn’t happen either. The offense was supposed Continue reading NLCS Game 3: Mad

Share Button

After what can only be described as two simply great games to start the National League Championship Series, the headlines are not really what you would expect.

I am still trying to soak all this in. Over the past two nights I have seen two great games. One ending in disappointment and one ending in celebration. Over those two nights I have gotten about five total hours of sleep. I know that the Chicago Cubs won last Continue reading Still Soaking Everything In!

Heading Into the Offseason With Heads Held High

Share Button

Well, the Chicago Cubs season is over.  I’m a bit disappointed, but I don’t blame the team or anything.  The New York Mets were just better, and there was no lack of effort on the Cubs’ part.  They simply got outplayed, and there’s no shame in that.  Baseball is weird, Continue reading Heading Into the Offseason With Heads Held High

They still have to win four…right?

Share Button

I’d be lying if I said I was confident right now, but then again I don’t have a choice.  The Cubs have nothing more to lose as every game from this point on has literally taken “MUST WIN” importance.  It doesn’t hurt us (any more than three straight disheartening losses) Continue reading They still have to win four…right?
