Once upon a time, before the Chicago Cubs could be considered “good,” I wrote something about how we as Cubs fans will be able to strut our stuff and celebrate baseball’s ultimate prize.  It wouldn’t have been fitting for our favorite squad to do this the easy way, so of Continue reading Cubs Silence the Haters Forever

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.

As we sit in a rain delay and wait anxiously for another Chicago Cubs game to begin (they’re in Denver to take on the Colorado Rockies), it bears repeating how well Theo Epstein and Jed Hoyer have constructed this roster, and how well manager Joe Maddon has maximized matchups to Continue reading The Cubs’ Science Experiment
