AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA *deep breath* HHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!--Brewers 5 Cubs 1

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA *deep breath* HHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!--Brewers 5 Cubs 1
The Cubs did the minimum in their important series against the Brewers. Unfortunately the offense’s deep freeze continued and the bullpen continues to be leaky as the Brewers leave town down a mere game. Curtis Granderson was inserted into the starting lineup in the leadoff spot, and it shows the difference between the hands Craig... Read more »

Happy--Cubs 3 Brewers 0

Happy--Cubs 3 Brewers 0
José Quintana hasn’t been what the Cubs thought they were getting when trading for him. He also hasn’t been as terrible as some think. There is no question that there is something about Q when he faces the Brewers. The 6.2 scoreless innings tonight brought his career ERA against the Brew Crew down to a... Read more »

Pain--Brewers 3 Cubs 2

Pain--Brewers 3 Cubs 2
First off, an apology is needed for the recap appearing now. I have been a bit under the weather lately, and it wasn’t just the actual weather the Cubs have been through or the Cubs performance when they have played. I also got suckered into watching the Bears for the first time in years, and... Read more »

Panic Averted--Cubs 6 Brewers 4

The series started on a sour note with the bullpen coughing up a late lead. The second game was just baseball happening, but the Cubs were in danger of leaving Milwaukee very much alive in the division race. The Cubs missed their opportunity to bury the Brewers but they at least kept the Brewers at... Read more »

One run, no fun - Brewers 11, Cubs 1

Tuesday brought another loss against the Brewers. The Cubs managed only five hits, had three errors, and walked eight (four of those walks went to Lorenzo Cain). It was ugly. Cubs starter Mike Montgomery had a strong first, walking leadoff man Cain but following with a double play from Christian Yelich. The third out was... Read more »

Ump show blues - Brewers 4, Cubs 3

Cubs starter Cole Hamels had a decent start on Monday, but the Cubs were not able to get the W in a frustrating loss to the Milwaukee Brewers. The Cubs got on the board first with Javier Báez scoring from first with some magnificent baserunning on a single from Anthony Rizzo off of Brewers starter... Read more »

Happy Flight--Cubs 8 Brewers 4

Happy Flight--Cubs 8 Brewers 4
The Cubs took an early lead for what felt like the first time in 2018. Their starter pitched into the seventh inning. The Cubs extended their lead and managed to hang onto it. And yet it still was a game that felt in jeopardy more than a few times late. Kyle Hendricks had it today.... Read more »

Finish Him, Morrow--Cubs 3 Brewers 2

Finish Him, Morrow--Cubs 3 Brewers 2
The Cubs starting pitching has finally locked in. This turn through the rotation has seen a quality start posted four games in a row. Yu Darvish continues to mystify the Brewers hitters. The Cubs offense seems to finally be feeling the absence of Ben Zobrist, Kris Bryant and Anthony Rizzo as they managed to score... Read more »
