Game 116 Preview--Cubs vs. Cardinals--7:08 PM

Game 116 Preview--Cubs vs. Cardinals--7:08 PM
Recency bias is one of the hardest biases to fight. The Cubs have looked like world beaters since the All-Star break. That is after looking like Cubs teams we have all known but loved a lot less than this incarnation. The 11 game win streak had a very well known national baseball writer remarking how... Read more »

All Good Things--Cardinals 8 Cubs 4

All Good Things--Cardinals 8 Cubs 4
This was a tale of two different ballgames. Kyle Hendricks was masterful for the first five innings. The Cubs got on the board with Ben Zobrist doubling to lead off the second inning. Addison Russell hit a two run blast to give the Cubs an early 2-0 lead against Luke Weaver. Willson Contreras walked and... Read more »

Game 70 Preview--Cubs vs. Cardinals--1:20 PM?
This certainly has not gone according to plan. The Cardinals have racked up two wins by the slimmest of margins to start the series, and look for the sweep if a game happens at all. It seems like most are suggesting that this game will get played, but the question of when it starts and... Read more »

Game 68 Preview--Cubs vs. Cardinals--7:05 PM

Two ships passing in the night. I have written informally about the Cubs on the internet for quite a while now. My earliest experiences were on the Cubs.com message board. Thankfully the database from that era has been lost in the ether for quite a while, but there are some things I have read there... Read more »

Unexpected Nail Biter--Bears 9 Rams 8

Unexpected Nail Biter--Bears 9 Rams 8
A Jake Arrieta start is rarely this stressful, but there many odd twists and turns this afternoon. The Cubs extended their lead over the third place Cardinals at the end of the day, but not without adding a few gray hairs to their fans. Jake Arrieta, with a little assistance from the home plate umpire,... Read more »

Some Devil Magic Left--Cardinals 4 Cubs 3
Excuse me. Okay now that I’ve got that out of my system. I think I can write this one. Okay now I am ready. The night started off well for the Cubs with John Lackey dominant in the early innings. Matt Carpenter grounded out and then Lackey struck out the next five batters. The Cubs... Read more »

The World Turned Upside Down--Cubs 5 Cardinals 0

The World Turned Upside Down--Cubs 5 Cardinals 0
The Cubs offense remained in the deep freeze for the first half of the game, but John Lackey out dueled Mike Leake to give the Cubs first blood in the seasons series. Dexter Fowler lead off the game with a double, but the Cubs would managed only 3 more base runners in the next five... Read more »

I've heard about the lives of small swift birds. Cards 10 Cubs 6.

The Cubs looked to head out into the All-Star break with 3 out of 4 against their heated rival. But the Cardinals had their ace on the mound and thousands of Cardinal fans that had spent the day inhaling WD-40 and cleaning every Duane Reed and Walgreens of their cough syrup to please. They did... Read more »

Anarchist's Brunch- Snapshot of the future.

Anarchist's Brunch- Snapshot of the future.
That’s how it’s supposed to look. Packed house. National TV. Best team in the league in the other dugout. Cubs winning the game. Decidedly. Yes we can zoom out and see where the Cardinals are in the standings, as an organization and where the Cubs are and realize that there’s still lots of work to... Read more »

Bye-Bye Redbirds, have you any wool? SF 9 Cards 0

Bye-Bye Redbirds, have you any wool? SF 9 Cards 0
Typically, you want your game 7′s to be tight knit affairs. Close games. Barn Burners. Games you can’t wait to talk about the next day and games you will argue about being one of the best of all times. But when the opponent is the Cardinals, you’ll gladly sacrifice all of that just to see... Read more »
