This isn't the biggest news to happen so far this season, but it could be. Starters going on the DL is horrible so.. Kyle Hendricks coming back and being 100% is huge for the Cubs. Just ask any Dodger or... Continue reading

Remember that game on Friday? The one where the Cubs were up 3-2 in the 8th, and then something revolting happened? Me neither. Because yesterday we got to see a classic Cubs/Cards game with a couple heavyweight stud aces just... Continue reading

Oh sure, Tim. It's easy to joke about it now. But yesterday when my buddy Oif said "Bryant's hurt", those are not words I ever want to hear. Baseball seasons flashed before my eyes. I kept refreshing a "Bryant" google... Continue reading

Oh was that spectacular last night, keeping this baby streak alive with the 4-3 win over the Braves. This .500 thing. It's been like some kind of fly paper stuck to the Cubs all season long, and I'm sick of... Continue reading

HAHAHAHA! Nice song. And Willson... I read he switched bats with Caratini. Reminds one of Rizzo with Szczur's bat last year. So hot right now.

You know that window. The one that opened up the day at the Cubs Convention when Theo Epstein said he was done tempering expectations. That window of time we've got while we watch the Core of Rizzo, Bryant, Contreras, Schwarber,... Continue reading

HAHAHA! The Lord is quite different than the Baseball Gods... aren't they? I wish you could do a completely honest poll and ask, "Were you surprised by the Quintana trade?" Seriously, who could have possibly seen this coming, and it was right under our noses.

Well, how'd you find out? I got a text from my boss who's on vacation about 10 yesterday morning. "Holy Sh+t! What a trade! Cubs get Quintana!" You want a boost, Cub Fan? That's it. During the All Star break,... Continue reading

Yeah, I'm pretty excited, Bud. You need a jolt? There.

That was one rough first half, huh? Ended rotten, too. The first time you heard the "That's Cub" tagline, you knew it had the same double meaning as "It's gonna happen". Starting pitching is the obvious hole, the bullpen has... Continue reading

We have never been here before. Ever. It's the year after the Cubs won the World Series, the greatest season in our Collective Cub Fan history. And the champs are struggling. Great Expectations are being DASHED. The pitching SUCKS! The... Continue reading

Hilarious quote there, Kris Bryant. I've been waiting for one of those games, too. Not just from you, but from everybody. I was at work. But my buddy Dave was on vacation, and kept texting me the WORST news early... Continue reading

Just watchin' the kids grow. This isn't terrible, by the way. Terrible is when you know the Cubs don't have a chance. We're in a new age of awesome, and if the kids meander a little while reaching full potential, that's okay.

Accccchhhhhh! The Cubs just can not get away from .500. It's like shingles, or that one buzzing mosquito who got in your bedroom last night. They win a few, lose a few, go forward, go backward, it's feast, it's famine,... Continue reading

I was hoping the Cubs would have taken that last win over the Reds and... Kick it into gear for real. Start a run! Even did this to get psyched for the game: I also did 8 versions of this... Continue reading

Voting accomplished. And,, haven't heard of that kid, Bud. But the Cubs could sure use another bat.

What were you doing yesterday when Ian Happ hit his coupla 400 footers? Maybe you were watching somewhere, but yesterday was made for being outside with the transistor on full volume in all of it's trebly scratchy glory. It was... Continue reading

Totally agree with the Sonny Gray thing. Maybe the Cubs think he's another Arrieta-type who Bosio can fix. But he'll be alot more than Steve Clevenger and Scott Feldman. And this year... no rental trade, please. If they do anything, let it be for a pitcher we control (but you're right... who?) Otherwise, I'd just hope they're leading the Central at the end of the season and we get lucky. If no big trade happens in July, I don't care. Big Picture, dude.

Well, it seems like we hadn't seen a finish like that in awhile. Great starting pitching from both sides with Jon Lester going 6 and giving up 1, Joe Ross going 6 2/3 and giving up 2. And at the... Continue reading

Imagine being tutored by Willson Contreras. I can barely keep up with him using my eyes.
