The 2017 Winter Meetings. At the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resort (I think those are two resorts in the same location or something). Anyway, the thing hadn't even started and the Cubs had already signed Tyler Chatwood. Today,... Continue reading

Totally agree - can't wait to see him. I wonder if we'll ever see a guy with a beard better than Reed Johnson?

You might remember Tyler Chatwood beating Jon Lester last season. Maybe noticed the loss more because D.J. LeMahieu smacked a 3 run dinger, or you were thinking man, that Charlie Blackmon sure has a massive beard. But Chatwood went 6... Continue reading

Big loop that's lasted forEVER! So depressing.

I can and have lived through horrible football. But times are changing and if they're going to be horrible I'd rather they be a little more transparent. Otherwise I just want to blow it all up.

Just how high is Willson Contreras's ceiling? I don't know - I'm the art guy. But isn't it fun to think about just what this guy might accomplish? Think about your favorite Cub catchers. Randy Hundley...Jody Davis.. probably the cream... Continue reading

I've had all this I can stand. John Fox is the head of this boil, the easiest to point a finger at. I can't wait for this guy to go. There was even this in his post-game (quoted from the... Continue reading

Awesome. I haven't heard of that one, Bud. And I watch Portlandia.

I'm sure that at some point in the future long after I'm gone, they'll have a video cam you can work thru your eyes and into your brain. Shame. Cause I'd like to see that too.

Sorry saying this so late, but Happy Thanksgiving. I was trying to do SOMEthing for Turkey Day, but maaaan I had to start with the holiday decorating or be in BIG trouble. I almost did this one: You know what... Continue reading

HI DB! Hilarious. Yes it looks like your niece is talented. Our agency, I think, is going to be looking for interns soon. Have her (or Valerie if you're reading this) email me at the address on upper right of this page. Happy Thanksgiving!

Yesterday's Bears vs Lions game was so awful to watch that announcers Chris Spielman and Thom Brennaman had to invent stuff to talk about. Like Spielman's Wheaties box. Oh sure I'm in the process of painting a clueless John Fox... Continue reading

Giancarlo Stanton edged Joey Votto in the MVP point system 302 to 300. It's interesting that both players are on such underwhelming teams. And you're reminded, of course, of Andre Dawson. It's also fantastic that Jose Altuve won in the... Continue reading

Yep - the Astros sure turned out to be the guys I pulled for this year. When I read that the Dodgers might end up with Stanton... they'll be the new Yankees in about 5 minutes. And by that I mean, just throw money around like mad.

I'd love to know how involved Tom really is. I guess I'd respect him the same if he said he just let Theo do everything or if he was way more involved. Both take balls.

Weird thought: who is your favorite owner? Of the Cubs? Here's the actual timeline of different Cubs owners. So far in my lifetime, there were the Wrigley's, the Trib, and Sam Zell. The only thing I remember about the Wrigley... Continue reading

So happy for Jason Heyward, the best right fielder in the game. He's also the subject of the first rumor of the Cubs' Hot Stove, this one with the Giants, Mark Melancon and our old friend Jeff Samardzija. Remember, we'll... Continue reading

Okay, I've had enough of how awesome and dynasty-like this new Houston Astros team is. So I thought I'd revisit my own personal dislike of this team from back when they were in the NL. If you're too young to... Continue reading

ERIC! It's appropriate that Day of the Dead comes the Day After Baseball Ends. If the Dodgers had won, they'd be saying the same "built for long run" stuff for them. There's a number of teams you could say that about now. And yep, this will be one interesting hot stove season. WHAT'S GONNA HAPPEN NEXT? WHO WILL THE CUBS GIVE UP? WHAT'S TO BECOME OF THE ROTATION? WHEN WILL DH COME TO NL? WHAT PROSPECT WILL SURPRISE US ALL? Lots of times, I kind of resent the internet and being so tied into all the deets regarding our fav team. Not this winter. Must Watch Theo time!

World Series Game 5. 7 home runs. That was like watching a video game. I'm not a conspiracy guy and I don't really believe in "juiced" baseballs, but it's so fun to imagine during the season... A mysterious phone call... Continue reading

I know, Bud. I like, bow down to Rizzo. He's the total Captain.

Yes, there have been lots of firings and hirings in the Chicago Cubs coaching staff and a whole lotta ink spent talking about it. It sounds like Management is unhappy with some aspects of both pitching and hitting. Whatever you... Continue reading
