It's a whole new world, Bud. And it's gonna get newer as this next week progresses.

Couldn't believe it. I started coming down with something about 9:30 yesterday. "Man, I feel terrible." I said that loud enough for people to hear down the hall. "I might have to leave." "About noon or so." Ahhh, I can't... Continue reading

How much do you love Joe Maddon? The Cubs could coast into the playoffs, but he's taking the games with wildcard implications seriously. And while I would love another Cubs/Cardinals playoff series, I don't really care when the Cubs help... Continue reading

I was listening to the Baseball Prospectus podcast "BP Wrigleycast". You should listen to it, too because those guys are nerdy Cub Fans just like you, only they're BP guys. And The Score's Mark Grote was on as a guest.... Continue reading

I have to be honest. I was working late and didn't see the play. But real late last night I read the recap and this same thing played out in my head. Jon Lester gets hit in the wrist by... Continue reading

Incredible. With Jason Hammel's 5-2 win over the Reds yesterday, the Cubs now have four starters with at least 15 wins. Hammel, Arrieta, Hendricks and Lester. Look at this: ManOhMan, the Cubs are good. A pitching staff with four guys... Continue reading

Hi Rich, That one looks so easy, but it took FOREVER to think up. Thanks for the nice note!

Missed the whole thing. Work. But yay! I did see the lineup, and it's AWESOME that Miggy's lefty bat smacked the game winner.

I'm with you, Bud. Each day I wake up and go "what the HELL?! How did this happen?"

I was theeeees close to heading down to anyplace on Clark close to Wrigley just to soak it up. Instead I watched, the Cubs lost, I woke up at 3 and checked my At Bat app to see the Cardinals... Continue reading

Thanks, Rich! On the other hand, I heard someone say that losing a no hitter on a homer is better than a cheap hit, and I kind of agree with that even if the Cards scored. On the other other hand, a sub 2 ERA in September is something you just don't see very often. Okay that's all my hands...

Wow is Jon Lester hot. I mean, he's been hot all year so whatever, the games just feel bigger lately. He held the Cardinals to 3 hits and a walk over 8 innings yesterday while the Cub bats got to... Continue reading

Hrobosky still annoying people, eh? Well, Hendricks'll be around for quite a while to annoy them, too.

Hi Steve, I'd have to do it without help from online producers of things like that. Like, get an Etsy accound, print them out and do all the shipping and stuff. I have the Zazzle account, and like every one of those kinds of suppliers, they don't print anything that they think is copyrighted. All I gotta do is put a Cubs logo or Joe's glasses and they won't do it. For some reason, a book falls under "artistic freedom" and I could self publish thru Amazon or Apple or something BUT... when people self publish it's almost always just writing. A picture book gets very expensive. But I'm thinking, and thanks so much for the suggestions!

I'm so sorry. Wow. 92 years old. That's amazing! Anyway, hope you're feeling better and hope that Hammel can make it tough on Joe to make that final roster decision/bullpen.

What a performance. Kyle Hendricks was sooooo good last night. A no-hitter all the way into the 9th before Jeremy Hazelbaker got ahold of a mistake change and hit it out. Before then... COME ON MAN, how entertaining and fun... Continue reading

I read a comment somewhere where somebody said something like I just want to get thru the Cardinal series without anybody getting injured and no beanball wars. Yeah, agreed. But I'd also like a couple Ws, and if 3 happen in the next 3 days I'll be very very happy.

Take a step back and look where the Cubs are. They have a 6.5 game lead on the entire league, and it's a third of the way thru September. The Cardinals are in 13th place. Wouldn't it be nice to... Continue reading

Welllll... not alot of good to talk about from yesterday's 2-hit, 1-2 loss to the Astros. John Lackey looked pretty good except for the 3 walks which got him, even if he didn't think they were all walks. But we... Continue reading

I was thinking. Hmm. I wonder if Lester will enter the Cy Young chatter going on this year. Another Lester-like performance last night with 7 cool innings where guys got on but that was it. Cool being the important word... Continue reading

Great play by Broxton though. If you're him, there can be no better feeling than taking a run away. Oh well. On to the next game!
