The Shutouts Continue v. Milwaukee - Brewers 7, Cubs 0

Tuesday’s matchup versus the Milwaukee Brewers was a dinger party and the Cubs weren’t invited. The home team garnered only three hits and failed to score any runs in the loss. Brewers starter Jhoulys Chacín was on fire, recording 10 strikeouts. Lorenzo Cain led off with a home run against José Quintana, his third of... Read more »

The Cubs staged two comebacks, including David Bote’s dramatic walk-off grand slam Sunday, to take two of three from the Washington Nationals.

Daily Cubs Minors Recap: Moreno breezes through 7 innings; Cruz throws 5 shutout; Fennell contributes 3-hit night
A South Bend 2, Lake County 1 Prospect Profile Erling Moreno is one of the more difficult Cubs prospects to put a ranking on. At his best, he looks like a ground ball inducing dynamo with two average or better secondaries (curve, changeup) to complement his heavy low-to-mid-90s sinker (T97). The Colombian hurler has starter’s... Read more »

Myles Monday Meltdown: Bote and We Raised $5,586 for NVRQT
This is going to be short and sweet. Bote: First, I can’t remember and more exciting non-playoff homerun for the Cubs. I’m sure there are contenders, but this one was just…wow. What else can you say? So instead, do what I’ve been doing and watch this video like 20 times. #NVRQT: We did it. With... Read more »

Duel--Cubs 4 Nationals 3
This was a well played game of baseball. Well it wasn’t a great day at the plate for either team, but it was certainly great pitched baseball. The two offenses each scored more runs in the ninth inning than both teams scored combined in the first eight innings. The legend of David Bote continues to... Read more »

Anarchists' Brunch: The Manager We Have

Anarchists' Brunch: The Manager We Have
This one's going to be more of a confessional than most. As I've said probably hundreds of times here, gauging the feelings and thoughts of Cubs fans, or any fandom, via social media is inexact to be polite, and wholly idiotic at the other end of the description. Every unhinged dingus gets a voice, and they're the ones who tend to air it out most. So to judge how Cubs fans feel about Joe Maddon via Twitter really isn't the way to study it. It's also unavoidable...
