We've reached the dregs: Nationals 8, Cubs 4

We've reached the dregs: Nationals 8, Cubs 4
I don’t particularly feel like writing the traditional recap tonight, so I won’t. There’s an air of almost toxicity around the Cubs that felt impossible less than a year ago, and today was an intense slice of that. As for tonight’s game, we know what happened, and most of us would rather turn away anyway.... Read more »

Everything is Awful--Nationals 6 Cubs 1

Everything is Awful--Nationals 6 Cubs 1
Confidence was not high heading into this series, and I think everyone would be pretty hapy to be standing level one game a piece at this point prior to the start of the series. The way that the Cubs achieved that though washes away any positive felings at this time. The Cubs played perhaps their... Read more »

Myles Live Reactions and Recap: Cubs 5, Nationals 4

Myles Live Reactions and Recap: Cubs 5, Nationals 4
First off, holy hell. That was a weird game. Second, fair warning in this one, folks: I did not watch the first two innings of this ball game. ‘Ole Myles lives on the West Coast now, which means that this game started at 4pm for me. And sure, I could’ve raced home to watch this... Read more »

Stranded: Miami Beach Edition - Marlins 4, Cubs 2

Stranded: Miami Beach Edition - Marlins 4, Cubs 2
Offensive frustration was again the theme for Chicago Sunday in Miami. Another opportunity to break out of the malaise that has gripped the defending champions all season was lost again. For the second straight game the Cubs ran into 1st inning trouble. Ichiro reached on a tough ground ball to Addison Russell which was ruled... Read more »

No Longer Sweaty Jon--Cubs 5 Marlins 3

No Longer Sweaty Jon--Cubs 5 Marlins 3
Jon Lester had never beaten two big league teams prior to today. Those teams were the Boston Red Sox and the Miami Marlins. Jon Lester has never face the Boston Red Sox and had only faced the Marlins 4 times. Jon Jay singled to start the ballgame. Willson Contreras moved Jay into scoring position with... Read more »

Feast or Famine: Marlins 2, Cubs 0

Feast or Famine: Marlins 2, Cubs 0
John Lackey pitched as fine of a game as can be asked of him anymore, and his offense repaid him by scoring no runs. Not one. I don’t subscribe to the baseball superstition that a team needs to “save some for tomorrow” when they’re scoring a lot of runs, but when they plate eleven one... Read more »

Myles Live Reactions and Recap: Cubs 11, Marlins 1

Myles Live Reactions and Recap: Cubs 11, Marlins 1
–Pregame- It already feels weird with no Schwarber. I know it’s an irrational feeling. I mean, he wasn’t even there most of 2016. But since the World Series, he’s been a legend, struggles or not. *Le sigh.* But I am pretty pumped to see the new kid, Zagunis. He was drafted the same year as... Read more »

Sad Series Win--Padres 3 Cubs 2

Sad Series Win--Padres 3 Cubs 2
The Cubs failed to complete the sweep. It feels sad despite the fact that the Cubs are actually performing well right now. The game felt emblematic, and it is weird how it seems like every loss feels emblematic of the season. That is far different than last year when the team rattled off 103 wins.... Read more »

The Greatest Leadoff Hitter of All Time: Cubs 4, Padres 0

The Greatest Leadoff Hitter of All Time: Cubs 4, Padres 0
It was a refreshingly bland win tonight, over with quickly and free of any of the kind of drama that filled the postgame on Monday night. Anthony Rizzo’s leadoff blast — this is becoming evergreen by now — started the Cubs on offense, and Mike Montgomery threw a quality start on the way to a... Read more »

Myles Live Reactions and Recap: Cubs 3, Padres 2
Pregame: Cubs by at least 24 runs tonight. That may even be conservative.  -Top 1st- Jose Pirela leadoff homerun: C’mon, man. I just got home from a great day at work and a good day in the gym. That’s not how I want to start viewing this game. Also, that ball was hit a hell of... Read more »
