Sorry. Slammed. No can write. But you know what I mean. Here are his numbers through four games. Like I said, baby steps. But I expect much bigger things as the season goes along. Yu should too. Haha! That was... Continue reading

What did Charlie Brown used to say? Argh? No, it was AAUGH! JUST when we thought we'd get a taste of come back victory, some ump called Kyle Schwarber out on a check swing, and we were all up and... Continue reading

4 pitchers, 7 innings, 0 runs. You could call that a baby step or a giant step for the Cub bullpen. Either way, I'll SO take it. The bad part was, the pen was pressed into service early because Jon... Continue reading

EEWWWW strep. I still have my tonsils. I had strep once a month for years as a kid. Brutal. Hamels was great and so were the bats, but this bullpen. Has strep. Or something. Feel better!

The last guy Cole Hamels faced was Yasmani Grandal. Hamels had thrown just over 100 pitches, and he was just so... pro. He threw 3 pitches, each out of the zone, trying to get Grandal to fish. Grandal didn't. So... Continue reading

Man, you must not be talking to anyone about the Cubs, Bud. I can't get 5 feet down the hall at work without someone telling me how bad they're freaking out. I get texts about it all day long. Maybe "pressure" was the wrong word to use in this post...

Yeah it is. But I’m the art guy. DONNA TELL US ABOUT A BAD START THAT ENDED UP A DIVISION CHAMPIONSHIP.

When the Cubs screwed the pooch at the end of last year, and we all agreed that yep... wins in April are just as important as the ones in September? That put pressure, kind of an unseen one back then,... Continue reading

I musta had 5 people come up to me today and... test the waters. "How you doing? How bad is it?" I told 'em I already freaked out in the privacy of my own home, but in reality this pressure is off the charts and it DOES take a little time for a team to really play together. I agree with "we'll be fine".

I heard "effectively wild" from JD I think a couple times. Brutal.

Of all the shit that happened yesterday, Zagunis might actually be damaged. See that look when he dropped the fly ball? Get back on that horse, son.

David Bote said that this game could only happen on April Fools Day, so... Sometimes, you just gotta laugh. Because something is just so unbelievable. Like the beginning of this season... Last night, when Anthony Rizzo muffed a grounder, picked... Continue reading

OMG I KNOW. I get that people need to rant, but this is... something else. What we need is a nice 7 innings from Mr. Hendricks, another W and then maybe people can get rational again.

Hi Maris, And Schwarber hits aNOTHER ONE! Yeah it's never normal early on, is it? That Sale game was bizarre. Anyway, I'm not going all doomsday or anything. This team is plain old good. I forgot to say anything about Q. He was amazing...

Well, pretty sure I speak for all of you when I say THIS IS SO FANTASTIC! The Cubs gave Kyle Hendricks a 4 year extension with $55 mil and change. Such a great team guy, such a great competitor, and... Continue reading

The Cubs DFA'd Brian Duensing yesterday, right on the heels of sending Ian Happ to the minors. Then, Theo said that October really starts in March, just in case you're not getting how important that white flag with the "W"... Continue reading

HAHAHAHA! I actually like it, this no nothin' on the hands of a major league pitcher. It is HORRIBLE when someone gets a blister "issue", but them's the breaks in the bigs.
