So here we are, the day before we return to work after a few days of gorging ourselves with a large flightless bird and assorted side dishes and desserts.  The Chicago Cubs have been relatively boring thus far, but we’re still a week-plus away from the Winter Meetings, so it Continue reading

Quickie Cubs 40-Man Preview


Now that awards season is coming to a close (with the MVP awards still to be announced), we turn our attention to the Chicago Cubs’ 40-man roster, which stands at 31 now after free agent departures and recent claims and minor signings.  That leaves 9 spots to protect a good Continue reading

I Will Always Remember the 2015 Cubs


The 2015 season has been one of the greatest ones in my short life time. I have enjoyed seeing the Cubs win 97 games, I have seen rookies take over the North Side, I have seen a second half like no other from Cy Young contending pitcher Jake Arrieta, and Continue reading

The Cubs Know How to Throw a Party


Regardless of it being a loss yesterday the Cubs still threw one hell of a party. All the Cub hating trolls are coming out and saying, “Who celebrates a loss” or “I guess Cubs are accustomed to celebrating losses.” Shut your mouths. I do not care what you think because Continue reading
