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!
We all remember what happened on Independence Day, a day which many fans will look back at and see as the day the Chicago Cubs officially threw the towel in on the 2014 season. After a 7-2 win against the Washington Nationals, while we were all watching fireworks, Theo Epstein Continue reading Small Sample Size Shows Improvement
I get the plan. I understand the plan. I like the plan. Tuesday night, the Chicago Cubs won a rain shortened win. Tsuyoshi Wada picked up a win after pitching five shutout innings before a 15 minute rain delay stopped the game short due to a malfunction with the tarp. Continue reading Every Season is NOT Sacred
Yesterday the Chicago Cubs gave their fans a spark that could light a fire which could keep their fan base excited for the remainder of another lost season. The Cubs are promoting Javier Baez to the Majors, and he will be getting his first taste of big league ball in Colorado Continue reading The Spark the Cubs need

After three losing seasons (yes, I am waving the flag of surrender on 2014) many fans are waiting for Epstein and Jed Continue reading No Excuses Tour Starts in 2015
Let us begin this one with a Tweet: No #Cubs in top 4! WOOT! RT @BillShaikin Most errors, MLB: #Brewers 89, #Astros 87, #Angels 85, #Dodgers 84. — Rice Cube (@CubicSnarkonia) August 12, 2013 So that’s good, right? In fact, when I looked at the error “leaderboards,” the Continue reading The Cubs and a bit of cognitive dissonance
If you have followed the Cubs at all in the past couple of seasons, you have probably heard about the plan at least once. The plan is spoken with the reverence of a sacred text by many that support the current regime and as if the words were liberal being Continue reading INREHIFACT: The Plan

The mantra of the front office has been creating short term assets to turn into long term assets. That has been the Continue reading The Cubs Don’t Plan to Suck Forever
