Welcoming a New Writer

In the midst of the winter meetings, we have some very exciting news at Cubs Den: We are welcoming a new writer to the fold. Husnaa V'hora is a Chicago native who has been a valuable voice in the Cubs online community for several years now, both for her social media presence and for the personal blogging and contributing to other Cubs sites that she has done.

Husnaa is going to be a wonderful addition to our community because of her intelligence, insights into the game, writing skill, and infectious enthusiasm about the Cubs.

She will be a part of our game recaps once the 2018 season begins, and Husnaa will also contribute to our main feature pieces as well. I have bragged to Husnaa about how intelligent and gracious the readers of Cubs Den are, so I am excited for her to experience that firsthand.

Personally, I will feel forever indebted to Husnaa for how faithfully she live-tweeted games during the 2014 season. During that time, I was overwhelmed by my ever-growing family, and as a father of four very young children, it was next to impossible to watch very many Cubs games. Thankfully, I came across Husnaa on Twitter and saw how she was tweeting a near play-by-play of the day's game and writing a recap on her personal blog, so I was instantly a fan.

Please join me in very warmly welcoming Husnaa, and if you are on Twitter, give her a follow as well!

    Wonderful news. Welcome Husnaa!

  • Welcome to Cubs Den, Husnaa! Like Jared, there have been times I was down to only Twitter and a dying phone battery to follow Cubs games. I appreciate the dedication and effort of those who make that possible. Looking forward to your insight and recaps.

    Yes! Once again the Den got a writer with upside and a solid WAR (Writer Above Replacement). Terrific under-the-radar signing!

  • Welcome, Husnaa! Looking forward to your writing!

  • Welcome Husnaa!

  • Welcome, Husnaa! I look forward to your work!

    Cubs interested in Salazar? How about Greinke in a salary dump?

  • In reply to Ray:

    I don't see a 93 win team dumping their best pitcher.

    In reply to Michael Ernst:

    My source tells me that they're considering exactly that to free up money to possibly re-sign J.D.

  • fb_avatar
    In reply to Ray:

    They are considering trading Greinke or they are considering shedding salary? Not necessarily the same thing. Besides, what would we have to give up for Greinke? Obviously cheap, but also, presumably very talented (Schwarber? Baez? Russell? Happ? the list goes on and on).

  • Welcome to the Den, Husnaa!

  • A family of four! Die hard all? Welcome Husnaa!

  • In reply to 44slug:

    Family of four was referring to Jared.

  • In reply to 44slug:

    Haha! That summer I had four kids all under the age of 4, so scrolling Husnaa’s feed during games at bedtime was a life-saver!

  • In reply to Jared Wyllys:

    It can be a struggle. I had three under 6yrs with my wife spending most of the work week on of town. Good for you! Looking back it was the best of times.

    Welcome to Cubs Den Husnaa. I look forward to reading your work!

  • Hey lady! Hello! Welcome!
    Teach these guys how to spell check.....

  • In reply to Wickdipper:

    My spelling is fine.

    My overuse of parenthesis is another matter. It's the computer programmer in me. I can't help it.

  • In reply to Michael Ernst:

    I wouldn't worry about it. This is baseball site, not grammar and sentence structure, which changed with modern technology.

  • In reply to 44slug:

    Doesn't mean I don't want to improve.

  • See the deal about Ohtani’s elbow? Wow......

  • Welcome Husnaa.

    Always room under the Cubs Den tent for good writers and true Cub Fans.

  • Welcome aboard! Looking forward to reading your work.

  • Welcome aboard!

  • In reply to SFToby:

    That's funny. I've read Husnaa's work over the last few years. She makes no secret of her desire to break ground and forge her own path. I'd bet she finds your "er" as both humorous and confirming.

  • Late to the game, but welcome, Husnaa. I look forward to reading your posts, and thanks for giving us your time and wisdom.

  • Welcome Husnaa
