Yep, the wild card should be in the bag. That's what the math says. But you know me, Rich. I don't believe I sold the commercial til I'm on the plane.

Oh I know your expectations, Bud. But you know what I'm sayin'...

Admit it. Come ON, you're a Cub Fan. It happens, right? A routine error, a blown save, and suddenly... IT'S ALL GOING TO HELL! Well, there's only one thing to do, and that's... not pay attention. Will that monster away.... Continue reading

Hi Rich! Yeah, I couldn't believe it actually turned out to be an actual, real no hitter. And no time to do a whole new piece, so I improvised on the art. Tweaking will be welcome. Starting with Mr. Baez!

I wish the end of the season was a tad more mysterious. But I think that's it. Cole vs Arrieta. And yeah, I like our chances.

UNBELIEVABLE. How impossibly cool is Jake Arrieta? He holds the Dodgers to one walk and the Cubs win 2-0. A no hitter and Kris Bryant's lonely homer in the 1st. The good part of it being an ESPN Sunday Night... Continue reading

ERIC! Can't believe this summer has flown by like it has. Gotta be something to do with the winning. Btw, having some frosty cold Pabst tallboys tonight.

Tonight looking pretty good so far. Arrieta is "nasty" which is... yeah thanks for the original thinking ESPN.. But the Bryant homer was SO sweet. Really looking forward to Baez coming back. Have an awesome Wrigley experience!

I'm particularly interested in watching Schwarber. Slump or whatever you wanna call it, it looks like the league has figured out a way to slow him down. Maybe, like Bryant, he can make an adjustment. And I'm glad to hear your "kids" common sense, Kevin.

That's such an awesome idea, Bud. You might see that as a drawing some time in the future...

The Cubs were up 2-1 over the Dodgers. Bottom of the 6th, Jon Lester strikes out Adrian Gonzalez swinging, Justin Turner looking, and gets Scott Van Slyke to ground out. The Dodgers' 3,4, and 5 hitters just went poof. Lester... Continue reading

NICE! I love this stuff. Can't wait for tonight's game, Bud.

Well, Fowler got a hit at least. Rizzo's shot was glorious! I predict a much friendlier score this evening, Bud.

When Clayton Kershaw sings the Cubs' praises... stuff like this is still just so weird to me. Going all the way back to '09, it would have been a backhanded, "Well, they're still a Major League baseball team..." I don't... Continue reading

Hi Rich, Yeah, that's all. It's the Cubs. I don't think, "Yeah, the team that walks."
1 reply
HAHAHAHA! I think just like that too. The opposite happens. So it's the next day and we all know what happened. Oh well, bring on Kershaw.

I was thinking 2 wins on this trip would be a success. This is brutal with the pitching...

We've seen alot of power lately. Right now the Cubs are 3rd in NL homers. Rizzo, Bryant, Schwarber, Fowler, Montero... Unreal. And while I don't think anyone thinks of the Cubs' pitching staff as elite "power" pitching, there is definitely... Continue reading

Naps! I never remember that option. "Honey, no dinner for me tonight I'm just gonna nap for a couple hours." THEN the Rizzo Grande.

This is gonna kill me. We're lookin' at a Cubs West Coast road trip with a bunch of 9 pm starts. Starts to games that matter in August. Starts to games that will probably be decided by a single run... Continue reading

That Cubs Den thing is fantastic. And this team is certainly carries the most hope to be the best in my lifetime. ANOTHER sweep? Crazy, man.

Yep, 20 games over .500. Unreal. And thanks for the compliment, Bud.

Addison Russell, Kris Bryant, Jorge Soler and Kyle Schwarber. I've never seen anything like it. 4 rookies starting for a winning Cubs team with a legit shot at the playoffs? THAT'S IMPOSSIBLE! If you're a Cub Fan, you've never seen... Continue reading
