I was hoping by the time I got home from work that I’d be able to tell you fine folks whether the Cubs had clinched a berth in the NLCS, or if they have to go back to DC for a winner-take-all Game 5. I suppose our latest Dreamcast is Continue reading A Fungus Among Us? Or, How a Chicago Hotel Helped the Cubs in Potentially Dastardly Ways

Remember back when the Cubs were scuffling (again) and everybody was freaking out (again)? Well, the Cubs decided that they wanted to be good (again) and with John Lackey on the mound, they at least secured a series split with a chance to win the series on Thursday’s getaway day.

Now that we are back and rested from the All-Star break and experienced a very fun sweep of the Baltimore Orioles, let’s see whether the defending World Series champion Chicago Cubs can give us something fun to look forward to come October… Rice got a job! Yay! The new guy Continue reading Dreamcast 17: Hot or Not?
Just a few days after the beatdown on Bobblehead Day, the Chicago Cubs ended the nominal first half of the season with a clunker against the Pittsburgh Pirates.

We all knew that the Chicago Cubs would have a tough time against the Washington Nationals, who trotted out reigning Cy Young winner Max Scherzer on Tuesday night. He was opposed by Jake Arrieta, 2015’s Cy Young winner, who has frankly not pitched like that version of Jake Arrieta in Continue reading Cubs Clubhouse #Narrative About to Get Weird? (UPDATE: SHOTS FIRED)
This week, after calling a truce due to conflicting sports loyalties, Rice talks with veteran baseball writer Justin McGuire (@JMcGuireMLB) about baseball (what else?) thanks to the peace offering of one Starlin Castro bobblehead… Why does the National League suck so much? Some thoughts on unwritten rules stemming from our Continue reading Dreamcast 14: It’s Never Too Soon to Talk About the Trade Deadline!
Andy and Rice watch the Friday night game (spoiler: Cubs win) and talk about: Certain Cubs having some struggles, yet working hard to adjust back to what we know they can do; What the Cubs plan to do about their pitching issues this season and in the long term; …and Continue reading Dreamcast 13: What, Me Worry?
