Maybe you were expecting this. I wasn't. I'm actually not a fan of the Hall of Fame ever since they let Ron Santo dangle for 31 years before electing him. It's politics and bullshit as much as talent. And they've... Continue reading

Back on November 1st, Brandon Morrow had "minor" elbow surgery. Cleaned up some cartilage. Interesting what "minor" means for a Cub who throws baseballs a hundred miles an hour. They say he'll probably miss the early part of 2019. Does... Continue reading

It seems like everywhere I read, there are unhappy Cub Fans. The Cubs aren't doing enough, where's the big trade? WHAT'S GOING TO HAPPEN? Sometimes I think maybe they're just new to Cub Fandom, or maybe they just forgot what... Continue reading

Hi Matt! I’m in NY totally slammed on a shoot. Leo Burnett used to be in the Prudential when I worked there. The elevators used to SLAM shut. Like someone coulda died. I have a Sutcliffe story about that somewhere on the blog I’ll try to find. And try that Soprafina coffee!! It’s a screaming deal!!

Man, if only Albert Almora were around on Sunday, maybe he coulda caught all this snow that fell in Chicago. Love his glove so much, his first step, his instincts out in center field. But the bat. 127 hits last... Continue reading

Haha. Watch, someone will take that headline seriously and I'll get in trouble for some kind of animal abuse. Happy Thanksgiving. Sure started off nice with the Bears whupping the Lions in Detroit. With backup QB Chase Daniel four-upping Matthew... Continue reading

Well, I could get used to this Sunday Night Football thing. There was alotta talk before the game about how the Bears hadn't faced a really tough offense besides the Pack and Pats. Kirk Cousins is really good, yada yada.... Continue reading

BA HAHAHAHAHA! Yeah, Javy is that quick. I hadn't heard anything about the left handed thing and no didn't see the interview. Astonishing, that guy.

Happy Friday. Look! I painted something besides a Cub. Weird. Hey, you hear that flapping in the breeze? What IS that? It looks like... why that's Jim Hickey! "That’s [Hickey] not a subject I’m able to address at this point."... Continue reading

I know! Olney. Anthony Rizzo tweeted: "Sources" LOL why don't people just own up instead of writing article for clicks? It's football season take a break and chill."

Who's the only other Cub 2nd baseman to ever win the Silver Slugger? This guy: Ryne Sandberg won it 7 times. Javier Baez just won his first. That's some lofty company there, Javy. And if you go back just a... Continue reading

Yeah that playoff performance was lame. And the other stuff... "That' s baseball" shouldn't mean "It's okay to play dirty" Don't try to blur that line.

Yep. I think that playing both SS and 2nd doesn't help Javy with this GG voting. But if you ask GMs around the league who's the best infielder in baseball, I bet they'd say Javy.

No time to write, but this is awesome news. Anthony Rizzo wins his 2nd Gold Glove award! And if all goes right in the world, he'll keep 'em coming. Now, about Javier Baez... can I speak to whoever judges these... Continue reading

Think. Think. Talk. Think. Dream. Think. Talk. Think. Eat. Think. Sleep. If you're Brandon Kintzler, you're thinking about inducing ground balls so much, you might start writing it out longhand like a grade school punishment. Not really sure what happened... Continue reading

For some reason, I don't like seeing digital readouts of how many days til Opeing Day. And I'm terrible with calendars. Some people can say, "Oh that second Monday in December is the 13th." Not me. But a steadily disappearing... Continue reading

I started painting this sketch of Rich Hill when he was still in the game and the Dodgers were up 4 to nothin'. I was pretty happy for the ex-Cub. In the top of the 7th, he walked Xander Bogaerts... Continue reading

HI Bud! I'm sure golf is in your current situation as well. Tonight was a great game til Roberts pulled Hill. Oh well, those Red Sox are pretty dang good.

An 18 inning World Series game with the Dodgers beating the Red Sox 3-2. I got an alert on my phone that said "Instant Classic!" Maybe it's because I really can't muster any emotion for either team except anger ("BELLINGER... Continue reading
