As the school year continues and baseball goes into hibernation for the winter, a slowly-recuperating Rice and fearless leader Anno get together to talk shop again… Thoughts on a splendid World Series, even if it didn’t involve the Cubs; Offseason moves that could happen to improve the Cubs for another Continue reading Dreamcast 27: There’s Always Last Year
The Los Angeles Dodgers and Houston Astros had themselves a ridiculous, possibly juiced-baseball-enhanced, slugfest in Game Five of the World Series on Sunday night, which really messed with my sleep patterns and made for a very entertaining set of highlights. In between the Crawford Box homers that are just popups Continue reading Cubs and Baseball Thinks Since the Last Time We Blogged
Rice is still recovering from a bad cold, but we found some time to record a poorly edited edition of the Dreamcast to talk about the end of the Cubs’ 2017 season. They are still the 2016 World Series champions, and nobody will ever change that. Here’s what we discussed Continue reading Dreamcast 26: It Was Fun While It Lasted
When the Cubs avoided the sweep, I had hoped that they could force the NLCS to go back to Los Angeles before a near inevitable elimination. Alas, it was not to be in 2017, as the 0-3 deficit proved too much to overcome. It wasn’t just the series deficit, but Continue reading The End of the Season, But Not the End of the Line for These Cubs
Perhaps it was because of the grind from having to battle the Washington Nationals to the brink last week, but the Chicago Cubs have not been playing well all series long as they went down 0-3 in the NLCS. This is, of course, their third NLCS in a row, and Continue reading Left For Dead, Cubs Show Signs of Life
Now that we are back and rested from the All-Star break and experienced a very fun sweep of the Baltimore Orioles, let’s see whether the defending World Series champion Chicago Cubs can give us something fun to look forward to come October… Rice got a job! Yay! The new guy Continue reading Dreamcast 17: Hot or Not?
After a not-so-good first half, we arrive at the All-Star break needing a rest from the Chicago Cubs, and even the Cubs themselves need a rest from the grind of baseball before they reset for the second half. Guest host Dabynsky drops by to talk Cubs… Rice and family open Continue reading Dreamcast 16: The Fault In Our Stars
Once upon a time in May, before I lost my job, we were going to get ourselves some bobbleheads in the one Wrigley Field game we could afford to go to as a family. Alas, the Chicago Cubs called the game early, the Milwaukee Brewers complained, and it was pushed Continue reading The Bobblehead Beatdown!
Now that we are in the second half (sort of, since the All-Star Game hasn’t happened yet), the Chicago Cubs are 1-0 and on pace to run the table. They’ll enter the Monday off-day before the Fourth of July just two games back of the Milwaukee Brewers, and having achieved Continue reading The Cubs Should Probably Just Skip the All-Star Game…(POLL)
We can reasonably assume that the Chicago Cubs will be good enough to make the playoffs, and are once again the favorites to repeat as World Series champions, although that is a bit of a riskier bet. Nonetheless, as of Sunday night, the Cubs lead the National League Central Division Continue reading Sunday Night Cubs Thoughts
