Joe Maddon says Addison Russell should get a gold glove? Hell yes! Of course I'm a Cub Fan, but so what? A) I love when managers stump for their players like this and B) did you see the amazing stop... Continue reading

So fabulous and cool, Bud! Gotta cherish these games with Father Ross. What a joy to watch.

HAHAHAHAHAHA! I think all I ever do is amuse myself too much. Headlines are fun to do.

Man, what a freak thing. 3 errors in yesterday's opening inning didn't help Jason Hammel or his ERA. Unfortunately, Jason Hammel didn't help Jason Hammel much, either. It was zeero to 7 after 1, which was way more than the... Continue reading

AWESOME YOU WERE THERE! Mike Montgomery... fantastic start. Lets see what happens next. I'm way up in Wisconsin and the internet has been down for a couple days. I GOTTA CATCH UP!

Those cylinders have been on fire for a month or so. I just want 'em to be like this end of September. You notice Heyward's not starting again? You just can't keep Szczur on the bench, dude. Okay well you can, but he's been SO good lately.. Signed, Best Summer Ever

ERIC! It's hard not to be distressed by Jake's occasional loss of control. But also hard to dwell on it with the two you bring up. That was awesome. Now lets see how Kyle Hendricks breaking stuff works in skinny air of CO.

Hi Rich, He kinda owns that area around first, doesn't he? Like it's HIS yard. Still, so lucky he hasn't tweaked anything while acting like a 240 pound ballerina.

What an amazing game for Bryant!

Freaking day game. I don't know anybody that saw Kris Bryant hit two dingers and go 5 for 5 and score 4 times and get 5 RBIs in the same game. But still, HOW AWESOME IS THAT? The Cubs beat... Continue reading

If you haven't seen it by now, go here. Anthony Rizzo went up on a wall to catch a foul ball, only this time he didn't have to fall into the stands. Instead, his expression let us know he couldn't... Continue reading

See that? Those flags they have hanging off the scoreboard at Wrigley? That's what it looks like. The order, I mean. And if you look at a calendar, it's August 16th. DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA HOW RARE AND WEIRD... Continue reading

He just couldn't get anything to go down in the zone. Bad. Nerf gun next to the tv? Awesome.

Well... it was an awesome game for 7 innings, or at least until John Lackey left with a tweaked shoulder. Then, a kick in the nads when Hector Rondon came in and gave up the Piscotty 3-run homer and the... Continue reading

My brother came from Los Angeles to go to the game with my cousin John and his buddy Blomquist, who got us impossibly awesome seats 7 rows away from Anthony Rizzo. Look at how close we were! Despite the loss,... Continue reading

I fully expect Rizzo or Bryant to take a pitch in the ribs today. Joe will go ballistic. Metheny will act like "what?" Ball four was just plain awesome.

These new pitchers are both the luckiest dudes in baseball but also... the pressure. That gif is fabulous. I followed MLB gifs and sent it around already. It reminds me so much of Zambrano. I wonder what happened with him anyway?

Pretty sure I've never seen anything like that. A no-look, 2-out, 2-run single? Come on, dude - THAT'S IMPOSSIBLE! Chris Coghlan was trying to call a time out, looked back at the ump, didn't get one, whipped his head back... Continue reading

Kind of a big day today. Cards are here. 4 game series. A battle for relevance for St. Louis. A chance to dominate for our favorite team. On August 6th, the Trib did a thing on Kris Bryant and his... Continue reading

I feel bad for the guy, but at some point you gotta look in the mirror and ask yourself if you want to be a Cub or not. Because this team is and will continue to be loaded, and if you're a backup with options then management's gonna use you to however you best benefit the team. There truly is no "i" on this one, unless you're one of the chosen. And that's just the way it is.

Kinda bitter pill, the way Willson Contreras' came up to the bigs this year. The brutal knee injury suffered by Kyle Schwarber opened the door. On the other hand, thinking about the number of impossibly talented prospects coming up to... Continue reading

I think about Schwarber all the time. The left handed bat from heaven, gone for the season. If he were here, others for sure wouldn't have had the opportunity, but good lord would this team be off the charts. Can't wait for Thurs. Did I just write that out loud?

Okay, kinda weird but remember that guy ohhhhh... maybe a week ago or so, pitched a complete game shutout against the Marlins? 128 pitches? Then a couple weeks before that...that same guy shut out the Mets for 6.1 innings? The... Continue reading
