Nice beginning, then Arrieta. That was weird.

The last time the Cubs played Boston, Darwin Barney went 4 for 5. Mike Olt, Justin Ruggiano, Welington Castillo, and Nate Schierholtz all hit homers. The Cubs won 16-9. I looked that up, of course, because I can't remember it... Continue reading

Did you hear Len and JD talking about it? They were saying like, you can't practice that. He made the decision right then and there. It was a nice shoulder roll, too. If a Cub tried that, I'd just have a heart attack. Please just keep sliding, Cubs.

Agreed. But laughers are essential once in awhile, plus I love making the +21 diff stat go waaaay up in the standings.

working on my first Davis painting. I think he's an assassin.

Poor mister sticky substance. PLEASE SWEEP and man, Eric, if you go away from Natty Light there will be a shift in the force. Unless you go malt liquor as in Mickey's Big Mouth, which I'll always be a fan of because Tom Waits had it served in between acts of his play "Frank's Wild Years" here in Chicago.

HAHAHA. He told me not long ago how he wishes Matheny would disappear. But, who's "Fredbird"?

If you haven't seen it for real, just google "Chris Coghlan". Chris Coghlan leaps all the way over Yadier Molina to score a run, and the Blue Jays beat the Cards in the Battle of the Birds, 6-5. Hilarious. I... Continue reading

DU! I missed the head whack, but god I love the story even more. And... nice to relax during a game for a change. But tonight, I REALLY want to see Hendricks do well. He was so good in Spring, where there were no visible radar readings. With his velocity down, I wonder if he's going thru "dead arm".

It's some kind of testament to this new kind of Cubs team in this new kind of Cubs era that I actually felt bad for a Pittsburgh Pirate. Their starter, that Kuhl guy, just got ruined by the Cub Bats... Continue reading

Beat the teams you're supposed to beat. That would be Cincinnati. So happy JHey seems to have figured something out at the plate. Still an odd swing, but whatever as long as he gets around on it. Hmm.. wonder what I should do this afternoon?

Castro's start IS amazing. And super happy for him. But this Cub team... never seen a group like this. Talent+JustCoolGuys.

I hope this name doesn't stick just because it usually means there was a breakdown in pitching, but when the Cubs came back from being down 3 runs with 2 outs in the top of the 10th, that's just something... Continue reading

Pat is the BEST. Ever. Think of all the crap teams he had to be positive about year after year. It's just so cool now.

I try to act like losing doesn't bother me just.. an everyday loss, you know? But it does. And a win just puts me in the best mood. More of that tonight, please.

So much fun, this extra stuff (this time from TIME) that comes with winning a World Series for the Chicago Cubs and that other American League team. Where would we be without Theo Epstein? Looking up, as we used to... Continue reading

Beat the teams you're supposed to. I kinda forgot those kinds of basic things, looking down from up here at the top.

What a nice way to end the game there, Addison Russell. He's got 12 RBIs so far, none of them more spectacular (so far) than the 3 he knocked in with his 9th inning dinger yesterday, giving the Cubs a... Continue reading

Not a lot of inspiration for painting over the weekend, so here's a painting of Dave Ross just before getting the homer in Game 7, the last hit of his career. So...Cubs got swept. Boo hoo. Anxiety. The bullpen sucks.... Continue reading

Heard that too. Kinda awesome. In contrast to the end of the game.

Everywhere today you'll see all the players wearing #42 to pay tribute to Jackie Robinson, the first African American baseball player to break the color barrier and suit up for a Major League Baseball team. Today if you're at Wrigley... Continue reading
