I don't usually call out a manager. They always know more than I do. They're also in the moment on the field, and I'm watching slow motion replays with a cold beer. But when Craig Counsell brought in Josh Hader... Continue reading

It's good baseball for sure, Bud. Entertaining and fun to watch. That's pretty shocking about the payroll situation. Cubs #3? Because I expect next year that the Cubs will... surely not spend less. And I thought the Dodgers would be up around #1. Hmm. Oh well, too bad for the Brewers. Somebody sent me a text that said, "Counsell outsmarted himself". Yeah.

Hi. Well, this is actually kind of an awesome series, this NLCS. When I first heard (on the radio at work) that Craig Counsell pulled starter Wade Miley after just a couple pitches, I was at a loss. That woulda... Continue reading

Never happen. Not with THAT baggage. And it's hilarious to be watching playoff baseball with no skin in the game. Like, contextually being a fan for so long. Just weird that I'm like, "I can't believe the Cubs aren't in the NLCS."

I actually painted this months ago. Because, you know, back then I knew the Cubs would be playing deep into October. Didn't happen. To be honest, I didn't figure they'd win the Series this year anyway, but once you get... Continue reading

BUD! What a nice note. Yeah I’ll keep going. Just take a little time off first. And if u didn’t hear it live, google Theo’s press conference. That guy is the model of modern team-running perfection.

(I started this on Wednesday, the day after.) Well, that was kind of a long-winded way to go out. I actually enjoyed the game and, in a sign that 2016 is still alive and well in my heart, believed that... Continue reading

ERIC! Well, we know the score now, huh? Eff the Brewers and may they have to come back thru Chicago for the NL championship.

Well, there you go. Even more difficult than we thought possible. Cubs 1 Brewers 3. Another one of those games where the bats were blind as... bats. Anthony Rizzo connected on a massive homer to tie the game at 1,... Continue reading

On a side note, Anthony Rizzo knocked in his 100th RBI last night. That's 4 years in a row he's done that, and the first time for a Cub lefty bat. Cubs beat the Cards 10-5 in game 162, and... Continue reading

Many years ago, I was flying with my boss, Judith Werme. Someone said she was a nervous flyer, but I had no idea. We'd just leveled off at the correct altitude, and now the flight attendants are coming down the... Continue reading

Well, this painting'll get done soon enough, but before that happens... The Cubs comfortably smacked the Cardinals around yesterday. My fav lasting mental image of the game coming from the replay of Adam Wainwright staring at Kris Bryant's 450 footer... Continue reading

Think back. As far as you can go. The Cubs have been the team on the bottom, the Cards the team on top. It's the history of my brain. It's the culture of the rivalry. It occurred to me that,... Continue reading

Well, to be honest we listened to the end of the game as told to us by Pat on the way home. But I'll still take credit!

Well in the end the Cubs pulled it out. But first, this happened. It's so busy at work. But it's also the 2 minute warning on Summer, right? So my writing partner Oif (we've been an art director/writer team since... Continue reading

You might remember this illustration from 2016. You also might remember that this team has the capability of coming back from the dead, and dead seems like the case right now. It's pure panic. "Sickening!" "Ominous!" "My beer is warm!"... Continue reading

Hi Steve, Wednesday, DAMMIT. Wed is off the list of clinch possibility days. But if all goes well, you could be at the clincher!

Oh man, this victory was such a relief. For whatever reason, I was dreading this series for like a month. But last night turned out pretty good, huh? Javier Baez hit his 34th homer, which ties him with Harper and... Continue reading

Well. There's baseball, and there's real life. And in real life, there is a great correction happening. And this great correction is long overdue because... it's just the right thing. It's not only about the abuse that allegedly happened in... Continue reading
