Crazy times, eh? I thought Ian Happ was heading back down, but instead it was Tommy LaStella. Pierce Johnson was up for a couple sips of coffee, an inning only, and sent back. Jason Heyward came back from the bruised... Continue reading

HAHAHAHAHAA! I'm so the same way. Did you hear what JD said about the pitch? Something about an elephant, which I assumed meant that's how big the pitch must have looked to Javy. Now taking at least 2 from Milwaukee would be sooooo nice.

With all the talk about the not so great record at home and the importance of this first series, HOW AWESOME TO COME AWAY WITH A SWEEP VS THE REDS! 2017 has been so much harder so far - by... Continue reading

And they smacked around even MORE today. Javy Baez... dayam! I actually thought I replied to this much earlier, but I must have left to watch the Schwarber bomb you brought up and I hadn't seen. Nice sweep!

Jackie Robinson's first game at Wrigley Field was May 18th, 1947. I didn't realize that Wrigley Field is the last remaining ballpark that Jackie Robinson actually played at. Wait, here's a tweet from Sahadev Sharma that tells it better than... Continue reading

Well, that was kind of a drag. Super happy and excited about Ian Happ and his 1st game homer, but there's this from MLB.com: The "being able to remain on the base at the completion of the slide" part just... Continue reading

So that's what those two L's are for. Willson Contreras, what a stud pup. 2 long balls in Busch Stadium to help beat the Cardinals in game one of their 3-game series. One to right, one just left of center,... Continue reading

The first Chicago vs St. Louis game happened on April 12th, 1892 at Sportsman's Park in St. Louis. Back then, the Cubs were called the Colts and the Cardinals was called the Browns, and the Colts won the season opener... Continue reading

Cub Pergatory. Or something. Maybe just a weird opening month.

Here's what all the smart Cub Fans say: Don't worry about it. And I'm a pretty smart Cub Fan sometimes. But after Jake Arrieta looked not so great again and the Cubs got clobbered by the Rockies... I wasn't freaking... Continue reading

It's not often that I'm glad I didn't see Cub Action live, but either one of those plays would have ruined all my nerve endings.

The starting rotation is a wheel and each guy is a spoke, but one of 'em was busted and it gave the whole deal a flat. The Cubs seemingly haven't been able to catch up after Brett Anderson's 4-out start... Continue reading

This is Kyle Schwarber's catch from last night's 4-5 18 inning loss to the Yankees. Or maybe what it looked like from the other side of the wall. I am soo sorry, but I was at my daughter's graduation and... Continue reading

The 9th inning 3-run dinger was SOOOO ugly. This 3-8 ass whooping ain't pretty either.

Aroldis Chapman will get his World Series ring at Wrigley some time this weekend. Plus I think one to Adam Warren, who was here for an invisible couple minutes. And THEN... I think the ring ceremonies will be over. Which... Continue reading

HAPPY BIRTHDAY ERIC! I'm so in love with this digital version of the Trib! They've been bugging me with multiple emails a day to subscribe, now I'm glad I did. Lackey closest thing to a Big Z on the current team, as far as attitude. GO CUBS!

Willson Contreras. I've heard he's "twitchy" and "jerky" and all kinds of descriptions, but Joe Maddon's is the best so far. "He plays with his hair on fire." The whole quote from the Trib: And thank the baseball gods he... Continue reading

Those other guys are all up to play the Cubs. It IS totally different. For you and me, too. Love it.

I was texting my Met fan buddy last night, and he said he predicts Collins gone by end of May. Gotta be torture having most your eggs in the pitching basket, and then they drop like flies.

When ESPN chose to show "dramatic" shots of KB split screened with his parents, I was listening to the radio and could not BELIEVE how much actual baseball action they were missing with freaking KYLE SCHWARBER at the plate. Terrible. And my buddy Oif, every day he says, "Stop it with the Schwarber leading off. It's doing him harm and he's too nice to say anything." I'm starting to agree.

Like you, I was watching the radar gun when Kyle Hendricks took the mound last night. 85, 84, 76, 86, 87... In the 1st, Hanley Ramirez hits a 2-run bomb on an obvious mistake, and after the ESPN guys went... Continue reading

Yeah, but I hate the way a performance like that hangs around like a bad smell for such a long time. I can't watch Rondon without thinking he's gonna mess it up somehow. But that's baseball too.

I was listening to the BP Wrigleycast podcast earlier this week and he subject of John Lackey came up. He's an innings guy now. 38. Multiple WS rings. If you watched yesterday, you saw a decent start from him. 6... Continue reading
