If I told you at the beginning of spring training that the Chicago Cubs would be playing November baseball, what would you say? Naturally, if they were going to play baseball in November, that would mean good things were happening, such as…forcing a Game Seven in the World Series against Continue reading Cubs World Series: Going the Distance

This is going to be short because I’m in need of a defibrillator, but remember when I said stuff about the Chicago Cubs making it to Game Seven? Yeah, that.  First Cubs World Series win at Wrigley Field since 1945.  Woo. Thanks in part to just enough offense, pitching, and Continue reading Cubs World Series: Back to Cleveland

Share Button

Let’s dispense with the sugar-coating and just say that the Chicago Cubs are in a very bad place right now, with a 3-1 deficit in the World Series and an offense that is sputtering, to say the least.  Aside from their run in the opening inning and a Dexter Fowler Continue reading Cubs World Series Game 4: Hoping For a Game 7

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.

Now that the regular season is over, and having clinched just about everything good imaginable, the Chicago Cubs and their fans will have to wait until Friday to see this team in postseason action.  We won’t even know who the opponents are until after Wednesday night, and we also don’t Continue reading Waiting Is the Hardest Part

The End of One Journey, The Beginning of Another For the 2016 Cubs

Share Button

The 2016 MLB regular season officially ended today as there won’t be any tiebreaker situations (unfortunately), and with that, we said goodbye to the regular season exploits of some legends and fan favorites.  There was, of course, one of the greatest, if not THE greatest, broadcasters of all time in Continue reading The End of One Journey, The Beginning of Another For the 2016 Cubs

What Happens When the Cubs Win?

The title of this blog entry is a paraphrase from a segment from SportsCenter where Scott Van Pelt asked…”What if the Cubs win?”  At this point, having already clinched the NL Central, the Chicago Cubs are just going through the motions, keeping guys loose and healthy, trying not to lose Continue reading What Happens When the Cubs Win?
