I'm not gonna say, "Well I KNEW it would happen." I kept thinking he was gonna come out of it, but... the bad at bats were too much. The Cubs gave Kyle Schwarber a couple days off, and then he'll... Continue reading

Thanks Bud. Coming back soon. And this won't be the only thing I'll have a ton of catching up to do. If the Cubs would just win about 11 games in a row, then evvverything would be roses.

This is just so unfair. You watch Game of Thrones? You know when Jorah touched by those weird grayscale guys who came out of the water, and now he's got it and will eventually be a stoneman? It feels like that only it's made of napalm. I hate the Pads going back to Garvey. And yeah that was an AWESOME play by Willson. Anyway, a sweep would be nice.

That Father's Day/Cubs part sure came true. This is such a strange year. Anything can happen. Anything.

This first part is gross, sorry... Growing up in simpler, dumber times, I spent most of my youth without a shirt on whenever possible. So yeah, I went to the doc 'cause my skin felt weird. She asks if I'm... Continue reading

Wow. Thanks Bud. Remember when there was nothin' to watch for except... well it was baseball? We went thru so many horrible years to get here. And as you point out, Bud, there's a ton of cool, dramatic stuff going on. The other day Jed said somebody in the Central is gonna go on a streak, and that makes perfect sense. But that last part you speak of... this season really really feels like that. Who's gonna be the one in the Central. Maybe it'll be the Cubs, and maybe that'll be when they finally get hot. Yeah, plenty to watch for.

Split team personality or something! But the win last night was FANTASTIC!

You heard that Joe Maddon was gonna have Anthony Rizzo some time yesterday afternoon, right? I looked at my buddy Oif and said, "That's crazy." So when Rizzo lead off with the bomb I said, "That's crazy." And later when... Continue reading

Our favorite team is a whole lot more fun to watch when they bat. I mean, BAT, man. Get up there and hit. I looked over at MLB Team Rankings and... The Cubs are SECOND TO LAST IN HITS IN... Continue reading

It is amazing to me that Derrek Lee was playing first base for the Cubs just 7 years ago. With other guys like Koyie Hill, Sean Marshall, and Mike Fontenot. That feels like decades ago now, doesn't it? One time... Continue reading

That guy had an impossible night for sure. Couldn't have come against a better team. Nice read from the Post Dispatch: http://bit.ly/2rCnQH1

We're all learning about this year's Cubs team, aren't we. They're so super hot right now, you and I are up in heaven. Last week was hell. The trick, and this is a yearly thing to learn, is to try... Continue reading

It was a great series and last night a big win - I was so afraid of a let-down but Butler/Montgomery were total studs!

Well, that was awesome. You know... these guys who you hear rumors about? The players people are complaining about, the players who ought to go to Iowa to figure out their swing? Kyle Schwarber and Ian Happ? PLEASE spread more... Continue reading

SO much crazy happened Saturday. Before the game came the news of Kyle Schwarber moving to the 9 hole and Addison Russell platooning at short with Javier Baez. Not bombshells really, but glad Joe Maddon's doing something to address the... Continue reading

I'm glowing. This game was SO awesome. The Lester look was spectacular! I thought the pickoff would be the headline for this game. Then the Salami happens and... But there was other stuff to make this day even crazier with Shwarber moving to 9 hole and Addison Russell being officially notified that he's platooning at short with Javy. I think good moves. And the Cubs leapfrog St. Louis. Just a fabulous weekend.

Friday, I turned Emily's radio on in the office window. That thing is 14 years old now, still works like a charm even if the sun's taken the vibrance out of the pink. So...the Cubs come on at 1:20. And... Continue reading

Hi Rich, Yes that is a Clutch Cargo reference, a cartoon I'd rather watch than my favorite team lately. Thank God it's a day off today!

Man, been awhile since I had to do a gif like this. A 5 game losing streak on the West Coast, the last two L's to the San Diego Padres. The last place San Diego Padres. The team that gave... Continue reading

Well, it IS almost June, isn't it? All the confidence and joy of the 7-2 homestand got ruined by the Dodger sweep, the Cubs are in 3rd place and just a game above .500. IT'S TIME TO FREAK OUT!!! At... Continue reading

With John Lackey starting vs the Dodgers tonight, I figure we'll see Pedro Strop come in for at least a couple important outs. Both he and Hector Rondon have seemed a little off this season, but I think Strop's coming... Continue reading
