Hi. This little bad patch is annoying but don't let it wreck anything. Long road trip, guys are hurt, the bullpen is being tested. So pay attention - maybe Patton or Conception just have jitters and really they're the 2014... Continue reading

Yeah, drawing is a little Game of Thrones-ish. But yeah, even in '08 when the Cubs were "legit" I never felt like this. I don't think I've ever felt like this.

Good ones, Bud! No to Chapman. Schwarber's lefty power bat is soooo missed right now, I can't imagine trading him. And that's not just emotional me.

It's not like the regular season is meaningless, it's just that... last year we owned the Mets until it counted. Yes I'll eat shit from Cardinal fans for awhile, but whatever dude. It's June.

Ow. Owwwwww. Okay, just a flesh wound. Joe told us this stuff would happen. Everything's fine. Just... move along. Cards sweep the Cubs at Wrigley. Just rub some dirt on it. It's not bothering the Cubs, it shouldn't bother us.... Continue reading

That was semi-nutty yesterday. Phone buzzed, I looked and it said, "Cubs place Clayton Richard on 15-day DL; option Adam Warren to Triple-A; select Gerardo Conception, recall Spencer Patto..." Flurry of activity, as they say. Richard, I guess they still... Continue reading

Love both these comments, Rich. I've been so busy that I didn't actually get to see Contreras until last night. People told me that he's super energetic and even "twitchy". I also got a text from a Cardinal fan saying he reminds them of a young Yadier. Kind of a nice compliment.

Had no idea about the diff in games, Bud. Good lord. Plus the rumors about him being injured (why Federowicz was kept around for so long), I believe way more now. Wow. Contreras is going to be fun to watch for a long time.

Gorgeous to watch!

I got this text last night: "this season is a dream". It is.

If you're reading at this blog, then you weren't watching Game of Thrones. And you weren't watching James LeBron's Cleveland Cavaliers win the NBA championship. You were watching a finely tuned Cubs team with their boots firmly on the necks... Continue reading

HAHAHA. I looked through the whole article. Oh wait, there it is IN THE HEADLINE. Fixing. Thanks Bud. Javy Baez is proving to be not from this planet.

When Matt Szczur hit his first inning 2-run homer, first I just thought... well no I didn't - first I screamed in my office "I AM SO HAPPY!" But then I thought about Matt Szczur. And about Albert Almora. And... Continue reading

Hi. So sorry no time for anything but an illustration today. But I heard Albert Almora hit his game-winning double on Emily's radio in the office last night and in my mind's voice I heard, "Damn. Is there no end... Continue reading

Some guys, when they come to the Cubs, for whatever reason, need a year to get used to it. I mean, it used to be get used to giant hope from the fans and continual losing. Now it's.. get used... Continue reading

Du. I take that all back. What I'm really hoping is Joe doesn't know something about Rizzo's back that we don't.

HAHA. You've seen this, right? http://bit.ly/1qm0UWi Because it's genius in both idea and execution.

I don't know why, but your note just made me laugh out loud, Rich. "I can't stand it". That's just funny.

Du. I know this is revolting, but I didn't get to see anything til the last inning. Hmm. I'll guess... thinking about... getting a new reliever?

Have you been outside yet? Buddy, it is hot. And nothin' goes better with hot than a freshly squeezed, salty-icy, bitter-sweety Margarita. Since Jake Arrieta's on the mound today, we'll call it a MargArrieta (which I hope wouldn't offend Jake... Continue reading

Made with 100% Almora beans! I just did a coffee commercial in Colombia last year, learned a bunch of jargon, shot on a coffee farm. It was so cool. When we arrived (a loooooong, bumpy drive from Bogota), the guy who managed the farm had them brew up... I can't call it espresso, but it was somewhere between regular coffee and espresso and it had a solid, golden foam on top. Literally the freshest, best cup I'll ever have, and unforgettable. Okay, shutting up now. But Almora - that's fresh brewed!
