Last week COMPLETELY spoiled us with the 70 degrees. You walked outside yet today? Don't. The wind came back, it's freezing and horrible. Instead, turn on your tv at 2:05 (Chi Time) and watch the World Champion Cubs take on... Continue reading

This is a little chunk of super cool Cub history, this little speech. You remember the miracle rain delay orchestrated by the Baseball Gods - their way of saying hey man, get your shit together. Those guys are NEVER nice... Continue reading

It's fun to think about how certain guys would be on this current Cub team. Ted Lilly and John Lackey in the same room. Who's the bigger bad ass? Or how much would Maddon love the 2008 DeRo?

Gonna miss Travis Wood. For pure entertainment value, he's hard to beat. Especially with the way Joe Maddon manages people with the athletic ability of such a guy. 2016 was a year with tons of memorable highlights, and Wood's catch... Continue reading

HAHAHA. Let me know what she says. I'd love to try and make that an official thing. Pitchers and Catchers Report Day. Who made up Valentine's Day? I heard it was the flower companies. Why can't baseball fans make a Day too? Nobody has to take off work, just make it a Day.

neckbone broth? Yum, Eric! I heard Joe said Schwarber still gets a chance to be catcher. That sounds dicey, but I'm always scared of knees...

Oh man do I LOVE THIS DAY! I was talking to somebody about what it used to be like. Before the internet. This day was SO abstract. If somebody said "Pitchers and catchers report today" twenty years ago, you'd have... Continue reading

Ping pong. Jacks. Dealing poker. Let him borrow Keith's guitar and see what Mick says. He's like a super hero or something.

39? If you were a math guy, that number has to have some kind of significance. 3 square root of 9. "Root" = base of tree, as in a family tree of pitchers. What? I need coffee, that's what.

Pitchers and Catchers Report. Baseball. The Cubs. It's getting closer. And of allllll the things to get excited about, one of them is new and rather small, but it's definitely a thing: Baez Tagging. The incredible fundamental skill turned up... Continue reading

And then, the trick will be to remember to stop and enjoy each baseball day. Can't wait!

Yeah that was one amazing Super Bowl. And of course, I had money on the Falcons (the $5 is in the mail, dad). But now that that's over, one can finally turn one's attention to what's really important: the Cubs.... Continue reading

ERiC! Poor Jason Hammel. He'll always be thought of like that, huh? Well, he did serve a good purpose with his regular season wins and innings. Just like... the end of '15 always up in my head because I was there and Hammel was terrible. Anyway, Montgomery and Anderson! Show me some magic, Mr. Bosio! This next season.. oh this next season...

It's sooooo freaky to think that the last time we saw him, he was on the mound in the bottom of the 10th in Game 7 of the 2016 World Series. In the grand scheme of things, he'd been a... Continue reading

ERIC! Rumor city. Wood to stay in Chicago. Coghlan a Redbird! I hope Wood stays, and there's got to be some kind of Theo love for him - was he not the first Theo trade? The Sean Marshall trade?

I'm pretty sure you were watching as the Cubs were welcomed into the White House a couple days ago. I'm positive you were watching as the Cubs took on the Cleveland Indians in Game 7 of the World Series. We... Continue reading

"Hi Mr. President. It's been awhile." Said every Cub making the trip to the White House on Monday. I tried to find anything about a Chicago Cubs visit to the White House in 1908, but can't. That's because the first... Continue reading

I read this in the cafeteria. I laughed and milk came out my nose.

Hi Donna, HA HAAAA MADE YA LAUGH. The convention would be interesting this year - I'd love to hear Theo. But imagine that crowd. I think like a playoff game - people with much more serious money there. "Excuse me, I'll give you $100 to cut in this Bryant autograph line." "No." "$500." "Okay." But probably I sound like sour grapes. I'd love to go, but I'm just so slammed...

Well, let's see... The Cubs are gonna visit the White House on Monday - that's pretty cool. Kris Bryant got married and I'm sure that was a super fun event. And there's the Tyson Ross thing, which I wish would... Continue reading

Bud, how many times do I have to tell you THERE'S NO CRYING IN BASEBALL! And... $100 for a ST game? OMG.

That's my brother, Grog. I'm sure you remember the Rajai Davis homer in Game 7. Off Aroldis Chapman. With 2 out in the bottom of the 8th. To tie the game at 6. He was at Ercoles (Erc's) in Manhattan... Continue reading
