Ahh, but some of it IS GORGEOUS. Like Javy's homer last night. We'll be seeing more that's attractive as time goes on. Ups and downs. Ups and downs. I keep using that Piniella-led Mariner team that didn't have any downs. Until the playoffs...

For some, this game was a life-saving miracle. For others, a nice win. Javier Baez knocked in 3 in the 8th to give the Cubs a 5-3 win that tied this 4-gamer with the Mets at 2 games apiece. So... Continue reading

Wow. A sparkling debut by a kid pitcher. Normally this only happens for other teams, so it's kind of a big deal. And it couldn't have happened at a better time, with Kyle Hendricks on the mend. Adbert Alzolay gets... Continue reading

Thanks for such a nice message, Bud For sure the future... it'll be something art based. But this gif is purely a digital creation I edited on my computer. I wish I could also edit last night's game.

That was one rough (or grinding) road trip, Bud. 2 wins? Actually not worried about that at all. I'm sick about Hendricks, though.

Well, at least the Cubs got into Kenley Jansen's head with Rizzo's huge game winning dinger Saturday night, and the Oh So Close rally in the 9th last night. Trust me, Jansen will be thinking about that come playoff time.... Continue reading

The door is still open for the Chicago Cubs 2016 World Series MVP, Ben Zobrist. Yesterday, Theo said that basically they've been in constant contact with Zobrist, that the door is still open, both Zo and the Cubs would love... Continue reading

Sorry can't help it with the beard thing. I like it so much I put it at the top of the blog. How much will Craig Kimbrel's arrival affect the Cub bullpen? Gamechanging. Evolutionary. World dominating! Okay maybe not all... Continue reading

The tone of your note here quite accurately reflects my current mood, which is probably best described as "star seeing". WOOOO!

Kyle Schwarber, that lead off guy for the Cubs? He's been kinda hot lately. .400/.464/.760 during his current 7 game hitting streak, along with 2 homers and 6 RBIs during this last home stand. His first at bat vs Wainwright... Continue reading

I went to the game yesterday (Saturday), and Mr. Lester was throwing his share of barely above 70 curveballs too. This Cub staff is SO MUCH FUN TO WATCH!!!

Thanks for such a nice note, Maris! I heard the arm-hanging thing was the result of an injury, that hanging his arm out like that alleviated pain or something. Anyway, I like ugly beards on relievers too. It really does add to the warlord look.

This game did not start out well at all. We were there, a group of Cubs and Cardinal fans - they'd gotten an Airbnb about 10 minute walk from Wrigley. We'd gone to dinner the night before, we hung out... Continue reading

Man, that dude has one ugly beard. But I won't mind as soon as he takes over the closer role on our favorite team. Craig Kimbrel, pending a physical, is a Cub. Last night at 7:44 pm while watching David... Continue reading

And I have SO enjoyed the last couple days! Hoping Lester keeps that up this Saturday v the Cards.

So many cool things have happened in the last couple days. Carlos Gonzalez. So doing a painting soon. When he made the full on sprinting catch and pulled his head up inches away from the bricks, got up and threw?... Continue reading

I'm certain you're feeling the same things I'm feeling. Anxiety. Stress. A need for whiskey. Getting swept by the Cardinals was like the one thing I hadn't considered for this weekend, but there you go. Lots of people are expecting... Continue reading

Well, that could have gone better. Yu Darvish goes 6 innings giving up a run and 3 hits, but also 3 walks.. still pretty awesome and certainly gave the Cubs a chance to win. We're all angry at the crap... Continue reading

Ahhhh yes. Cubs vs Cardinals all weekend long. Let's take a look at the post Memorial Day Weekend standings, shall we? Cubs are hanging on through a tough stretch where the pitching sort of stumbled until Kyle Hendricks' fabulous 8... Continue reading

I know. It's like a bunch of Michael Wuertzes back there. And even that's okay as long as you've got something to stop it all at the end. I don't think we'll have a giant choice this year, but something has to happen. Man do I love that Cardinals story. We traded laughs today!

First, a moment of silence for the great Bill Buckner. I had no idea he was ill, so... what a shock. Seems like I just saw him at the Cubs Convention... Next, it pains me to do a negative post... Continue reading

Not everybody likes Kyle Schwarber leading off, and maybe he won't today, but if you're a pitcher and you have to deal with these 4 guys in a row... kinda gotta be a nightmare. Continue reading

Yep. Keeping the faith, too. For sure they'll get some bullpennish help down the road. Or maybe sooner than I think. Also, yeah, I'm glad I have my phone so I can figure out who's on the mound.

That's funny, because I'm drinking and blathering about the bullpen, only ALL THE TIME. Today's post is a tip of the cap to the 1-4 guys.
