Hey Bud. You just summed it up in a couple sentences.

The bad news is the Cubs lost the first two games of the Marlins series by a cumulative score of 3-21. The good news is the Cubs finally beat 'em 2-0 yesterday. That happened after the Cubs won just the... Continue reading

Some awful, and a pretty big "Hmmm" last night. The worst was Kris Bryant getting hit in the hand. He took his base, but as soon as you saw that Patrick Wisdom took over at 3rd... hurl time. After the... Continue reading

Got a wild hair and decided to get a ticket. 3rd row upper deck infield looking down at a Wrigley Field summer night. Made a super quick video above. I gotta tell you it is WEIRD getting touched by other... Continue reading

Hi Bud. Man I am perusing Stub Hub as I write. If I find something good, Im so going tonight. The day is gorgeous and how many times do you get a ticket to the possibility of a sweep over the Cards?

Well hi. Been awhile I know - we just got back from a trip. I dragged in suitcases and was treated to what I'd guess is the most enjoyable and satisfying Cub win since that one night it rained in... Continue reading

Today before the Cubs game you'll hear, "Ladies and gentlemen, please rise and kindly remove your hats for our National Anthem." It's a good time to think about guys like my Dad. Here he is at flight training somewhere in... Continue reading

The shot of the dugout was priceless. Baseball is fun with Javy for sure.

Well if you haven't seen the actual play by now, you were probably out riding the Mars Rover. Like a complete ultra-maroon, I was painting. I got a text that said, "Did you see Baez?" Which meant that A) I... Continue reading

Man, this is getting dire. I mean, we can all think how lucky we are that Willy didn't come away with a busted wrist the other day, but... Jake Marisnick, Jason Heyward, Matt Duffy, Justin Steele, and now Nico Hoerner.... Continue reading

After watching last night's crazy-thrilling extra inning Cubs W, I was reminded of a quote from this guy who used to manage our favorite team. Which in turn inspired me to make an inspirational poster: And it's a perfect day... Continue reading

This cicada thing has been top of mind lately, but SO HAS THIS UPCOMING SERIES! Tonight at 7:15, 44 games into the 2021 season, the Cubs FINALLY play the Cardinals. Professor Hendricks will take the mound, and while we're all... Continue reading

Oh Bud you shoulda been there! And winning 5 or 6 in a row starting today would mean a sweep in St. Louis. Hmmm...

First off, I got this email a couple days ago: WHATEVER MAN, it's totally Wrigley's loss. Seriously, we did get to hear the new guy, and he was... already just part of the park. Perfect. So... I met my trusty... Continue reading

Hi Garden Deco. Sometimes spell check "fixes" what you type and changes the intent of what you were posting. I can't quite make out what you mean there, but thanks for commenting!

The last time we heard from Jon Lester, he was buying Cub fans a beer - Miller Lite - as a thank you. 4 bars, one beer apiece, came out to about $47,000. (I can't find it on google, but... Continue reading

Since he got back from his stint on the IL for "left wrist tendenitis", Joc Pederson has been hitting. Just not for power. Last 7 days he's got 12 hits in 27 at bats with no dingers. But that's .444/.484/.481... Continue reading

Started right off the bat, as they say. Kyle Hendricks took 34 pitches to get thru the entire 9-Pirate lineup in the first inning, which included clown bloops, seeing eye singles, a Jake Marisnick injury, an error, and 4 Pirate... Continue reading

He’s kind of in fire. He better be, with Marisnick out.

Matt Duffy - the tall backup 3rd baseman who made the Cubs roster by having "quality at bats" (from Rossy) - that guy is good. He seems to always be in the middle of all the scoring. Lets go backwards... Continue reading

Bud, By now you know the end of this Dodger series ended in an actual 3-game sweep. CRAZY!!!

SO MUCH GOOD HAPPENED! After the general bummer of injury and loss against the Reds, the Cubs pulled off some seriously amazing wins. First, however, we found out that Nico Hoerner, Jake Arietta, and Dan Winkler all go on the... Continue reading

Well, that sucked. Ian Happ had the GREATEST game on Sunday. He led off with a double, his first double of 2021. (He had 11 in last year's shortened season - the best on the team.) That double came when... Continue reading

Well thanks, Adbert Alzolay. One more lopsided loss in Atlanta with crap pitching and bats stuck on the "K" setting and my heart would just bust in a billion pieces. I'm not even kidding. This is not how this thing... Continue reading
