Share Button

The 2017 All-Star Game would be played with but one Chicago Cubs player, and that guy (Wade Davis) wasn’t even on the 2016 World Series-winning roster. But that doesn’t mean the game was no fun, especially when the Cubs got what one could perceive as much-needed rest as they try Continue reading An All-Star Event Without Too Many Cubs

You may have gotten a chance to listen to our Dreamcast already, but if not, give it a listen and rate etc.  Anyway, it’s been a somber week or so as the Chicago Cubs have been floundering quite a bit, for reasons that aren’t exactly clear.  The nice thing is Continue reading Welcome Back Dexter Fowler, Thanks For Losing

As I toil away at school before spring break, it occurs to me that a subset of Chicago Cubs fans were riding and dying with every pitch of every inning…three games into the season.  Well, now that the Cubs have taken the season-opening series from the rival St. Louis Cardinals, Continue reading The Cubs Are in First Place With 159 Games to Go

Gotta cut to the chase as we have a giveaway to announce soon, so here’s the gist of the Cubs’ practice game on Thursday, after they got a day off to rest up. Mike Montgomery started the game, got in his two innings, only giving up a solo homer. Brett Continue reading Cubs Practice: Back to Work

Cubs Spring Training Figures to be Fun…and Uneventful

The Cubs, as a championship caliber team, report to spring training this week without a lot left to decide.  In total, the World Series Champions return essentially all of their contributing starters, with the exceptions of Dexter Fowler and Jason Hammel.  What’s more, they return Kyle Schwarber as a full time Continue reading Cubs Spring Training Figures to be Fun…and Uneventful
