I personally haven’t been to the Cubs Convention since 2012, when it was still being held at the Hilton and the Chicago Cubs were still very bad at baseball. We pretty much learned this weekend, straight from Theo Epstein’s mouth, that that was by design, just as he intimated all Continue reading The Best Cubs Convention, So Far
Back from California now, I got to follow the doubleheader between the Chicago Cubs and the Cincinnati Reds. I also got to listen to the last bits of the Kyle Schwarber game Tuesday night, including the go-ahead (and eventual game-winning) home run. In addition to a new, snarky Cubs Twitter, this Continue reading Keeping the Cubs Success On the Field Through Reducing Injuries

He’ll still need to work on, uh, stuff this offseason. There’s a lot to be excited about. The Chicago Cubs upped their Twitter game after their affiliates went Continue reading Fun with Cubs Twitter

Baseball is still inherently unpredictable and anything can happen on any given day, as we saw with Continue reading World Series Dreaming Tweet Du Jour
Ever since Roobs and Anno forced me to join Twitter, I’ve decided to just make the most of it and have some fun. One of the funnier troll accounts I’ve found (and I’m sure you are familiar with him too) is Not Tom Ricketts. It’s kind of like when the Continue reading What if the Cubs were really trolling us on Twitter?
