Well well…remember what I said before the Cubs went off to Arizona? Right now, there is a 2.5 game NL Central lead with a magic number of 11. Just get to Thursday without anyone else getting hurt and with at least that lead intact, and I believe the Cubs are Continue reading The Final Stretch

The Chicago Cubs have won their first postseason game since 2003.  It was a nice game to listen to on the radio (darn lack of cable) but thank goodness for highlights!  It’s too bad they didn’t embed the solid defensive plays, (there were more) but we got the fireworks… Kyle Continue reading Highlights from the first Cubs postseason win in a while (yes, it counts)

So…what about the American League?

Share Button

With their latest victory, the Chicago Cubs guaranteed that they would have at least the third best record in Major League Baseball, since at 96 wins banked, they will finish 2015 with a better possible record than any American League opponent.  The Cardinals are still Devil Magic and the Pirates Continue reading So…what about the American League?
