An Industrial Sized Chill Pill

Share Button

Boy, you think the Cubs had turned a corner, and then suddenly they drop a key series to the literal worst team in MLB. Naturally it is easy to think that if this were an actual 162 game season without a pandemic lurking, this set of Cubs would be blown Continue reading An Industrial Sized Chill Pill

Let’s Just Say This Was a Turning Point

Share Button

The Chicago Cubs had themselves a very interesting series win against division rival Milwaukee, and the final game between the two teams this season did not disappoint…if you’re a Cubs fan, that is: At this point, the Cubs have 12 games remaining with a 28-20 record. That gives them a Continue reading Let’s Just Say This Was a Turning Point

Finish Strong or Just Hang On?

Share Button

Since the last we spoke, the Cubs haven’t really pulled away from the rest of the division as they blew multiple opportunities to blow the games wide open with the bases loaded and have suffered some setbacks with pitching. But somehow, they still managed to come out of their final Continue reading Finish Strong or Just Hang On?

What If?

Share Button

As the Cubs and Brewers find themselves tied for the NL Central lead with just one game to go, we think about all the “what ifs” throughout the season that could have avoided this scenario. It’s easy to blame this on a collapse of sorts, since all the Cubs had Continue reading What If?

The Final Stretch

Share Button

Well well…remember what I said before the Cubs went off to Arizona? Right now, there is a 2.5 game NL Central lead with a magic number of 11. Just get to Thursday without anyone else getting hurt and with at least that lead intact, and I believe the Cubs are Continue reading The Final Stretch

That Elusive Off Day

Share Button

I realize that everything is terrible these days (whether we’re talking about the Chicago Cubs or real life), but I think the fact that the Cubs are still projected to make the playoffs is good news. I doubt the odds have changed much since the Sunday loss (they did win Continue reading That Elusive Off Day

The Remains of the Season

Since the Cubs won their getaway game against the Milwaukee Brewers and have a four-game cushion in the NL Central before heading to Washington to battle the slightly torn down but still not that bad Nationals, I thought I’d update from the previous blog and check on the outlook as Continue reading The Remains of the Season

Never Tell Me the Odds!

The job hunt is going along, but I sure would enjoy having a few more interviews and maybe even an offer or two. Anyway, life is no excuse for not updating this blog, so I thought I would at least talk about the odds… As of today (Tuesday 9/4), the Continue reading Never Tell Me the Odds!

The Cubs’ Full House

Share Button

The Chicago Cubs will be home for the majority of the remainder of the 2018 season, which on the surface should be good for them to secure another NL Central division title. The recent trade for Daniel Murphy reminded me of when they traded for Aroldis Chapman for the stretch Continue reading The Cubs’ Full House
