Some losses are easier to take than other losses over the course of a long baseball season. Sunday’s loss against the rebuilding Marlins was a pretty difficult one to take. Against a pitcher with what would generously be considered average stuff, the Cubs could not put any runs on the board. Miami on the other... Read more »
After five hours last night I'm sure we were all just aching to put in another four tonight, with short outings from both starters. But baseball has a way of screwing right out from under you when you can least afford it. It does not obey. Thank god it's only the third day of the season so the bullpen arms can't be too burned. At this pace, they should last a good week.
But all's well that ends well. The Men Of The Match again was the bullpen, who if not for one borderline strike call that didn't go their way would have had a clean sheet once again to go with the five-plus one they got on Opening Day and the nine innings with one run yesterday. Joe Maddon probably didn't want to have to dig this deep into the toy chest after last night, but sometimes you just gotta go to that Nerf ball (do they still have Nerf balls?). Needs must...
Evan Altman of CubsInsider joins Myles to talk about the end of Spring Training and what they expect for the regular season.
The future for the Cubs is rich with possibility.

Pregame: Well if all goes well, the Cubs will be celebrating in Busch Stadium under a shower of Champagne and Bud Light. Currently, the game time temp in St. Louis is nearing 90 degrees, with the humidity. I’m sitting here laughing at all of the people wearing red, because it’s currently a cool 60 degrees...

They say all good things must come to an end eventually. In the case of the Cubs, the good thing that came to an end Wednesday was a seven-game winning streak. The Rays ended the streak with a whimper not a bang. The Cubs offense started out flat against Blake Snell with three ground ball... Read more »
The Cubs effectively put an end to the Cardinals season by sweeping them at Wrigley last weekend. Now a big series looms this weekend in Milwaukee with the second-place Brewers. In between in an oddity of the MLB schedule, Chicago heads to Tampa to finish their four-game home and home series with the Rays. The... Read more »
