Hi Mark! Chicago misses you, bud. I've got a small ice pond at the bottom of my back steps I hope those voices will melt tomorrow.

And tomorrow, proof of baseball will be shared beyond tweets and instagrams and online Athletic stories. At 2:05 you can tune your transistor to the Score and hear it on the radio. Continue reading

Well the Bears did their best to shorten this winter with their awesome performance. Entertaining for sure, but like last year's Cubs, their season ended prematurely. Doesn't matter now though, does it? Because today in Arizona, there's a bunch of... Continue reading

HI DONNA! It was an ice storm here this morning. Super fun. And it's blizzarding out the windows of 225 N Michigan on the 21st floor. But I think it's not gonna stick. Anyway YES IT'S SO GLORIOUS!!! But one thing... I thought they report tomorrow. https://www.mlb.com/news/pitchers-and-catchers-2019-report-dates/c-302778698 Whatever, with your note here, I'm happy to look out at the falling snow and imagine a ball popping into a catcher's mitt even if they're just playing catch.

Nice work, Bud! I know pitchers can't hit, but it's cool to see what you've done here. And this team has no Arrieta's or Wood's or Zambrano's. But still... you ever get to the park early and watch batting practice? I love when the pitchers compete for homers. Anyway, it's another reason to get to the ballpark this year, right? Pitchers won't be hitters much longer.

Hi. The DH in the National League. What do you think? I asked around, got about 25 answers, and surprisingly it's just about even. I'm about as old school as you can get. If it were up to me, there... Continue reading

I don't necessarily like it, but I've been mentally preparing for this for years. So at least I'm kind of ready. The D Hitter coming to the Nat League. From back when the Cubs drafted Dan Vogelbach. Because apparently that... Continue reading

I know. You're nervous, too. There is a head-spinning number of new faces who'll all be trying out for the Cubs bullpen. For now, it really does look like... just throw as many guys as possible at the wall and... Continue reading

Yeah, but SO MANY times, I KNEW we'd win. Sure, later I found out I was wrong, but still. I KNEW!

I remember way back in days of dating, there was never a sort of out-loud warning that you were about to break up. One day one of you would say... "It's over." And the one receiving the bad news, that... Continue reading

Pretty much everything I heard about happening is touched upon in the gif. Except Marla Collins, of course, wasn't really there. She'll just remain a fond memory from the Harry days. Kris Bryant said some stuff during the Ryan Dempster... Continue reading

Rick Reuschel was 6'3" and weighed 235 pounds. Anthony Rizzo is 6'3" and 240 pounds. It says Carl Edwards Jr. is 6'3" and 170 pounds. He musta put on some weight, because that dude is skinny. His stuff is soooooo... Continue reading

Ow my head. That's just what I mean. I can't wait for this part to be over, and the games to be played on the field actually happens.

I'd like to think of this period of time as just sort of unsatisfying rather than a failure of ownership to give management the cash to do something huge in this Hot Stove of 2018-19. So many people want this... Continue reading

Wow Bud what a great story! Thanks for putting it here, and please tell your bud we're pulling for him (along with the Bears) too!

You can't tell me that when an opposing QB with tender ribs puts his head on his pillow at night, he doesn't see the Chicago Bears defense lining up there on the ceiling. And still be there when he closes... Continue reading

Hi Bud, Oh I know. We can't not pay attention to this time of year. But maybe I should take a vaca from all the social stuff. I read one article at the Athletic that actually claimed the Cubs will be better next year with a healthy Bryant and Darvish - you wouldn't believe how rare that kind of article is. And it seems so obvious. Anyway, that article still ended with it sure would be nice to get Harper.

Sorry. Except for the Bears, this Bryce Harper thing seems to be the Headline of the End of 2018. I'm actually still all in on let's just update the bullpen and I'll be plenty happy with that. There is some... Continue reading

Hi Bud, Yeah, I haven't been freaking out about anything Cubs because the Bears have been so good and taking up all the space in my sports brain. I wanna see how they freshen the bullpen, and otherwise I think I'll keep enjoying the few precious holiday days off.

Agree. I don't think there's a chance in hell, but whatever... EVERYONE talks about it. Tell you what, I am really getting sick of people spending so much time talking about bad signings. I mean, sure Theo can do wrong, but the level of respect that guy commands from me is off the charts. I will praise him, Jed and the rest of the staff forever.
