Slider But It Didn't Slide - Cubs 5, Mets 3

Slider But It Didn't Slide - Cubs 5, Mets 3
Through the first seven innings of Sunday’s game it felt like another lifeless Cubs loss. The offense limping along against the reigning Cy Young winner Jacob deGrom. The hot takes were already flying when Chicago finally got to the Mets awful bullpen to earn a last at bat win. Cole Hamels allowed a leadoff infield... Read more »

Cubs vs Mets: Series Preview (6/20-6/23)

Cubs vs Mets: Series Preview (6/20-6/23)
A baseball truism is that a team is neither as good or as bad as they look at their best and worst moments. The Cubs 2019 campaign might be the most extreme poster child for this situation. The 2019 season can roughly be divided into three parts to start the year. The dreadful 1-6 start... Read more »

Big Bad Cole--Cubs 10 Rockies 1

Big Bad Cole--Cubs 10 Rockies 1
There are times where a true ace just puts a team on his back and carries them to a win. Jon Lester has been noted for this ability over time. So much so that many call him Big Bad Jon or maybe some other more profane nickname when he dominates as a stopper. This afternoon in Colorado... Read more »

Cubs at Rockies: Series Preview (6/10-6/12)

Cubs at Rockies: Series Preview (6/10-6/12)
The Cubs are riding as high as you possibly can into Denver. Well I suppose that isn’t true, but there is still certainly a post-St. Louis series sweep afterglow in the air. The starting pitching has been good to great again, and that can carry a team pretty far even without a lineup nearly as... Read more »

Handsome Victory--Cubs 3 Cardinals 1

Handsome Victory--Cubs 3 Cardinals 1
The baseball gods line up in certain ways that favor and oppose your team over a 162 game season. Or at least that is the way it certainly feels to any fan of a baseball club. This afternoon was a day that certainly seemed like it was a merely a pending transaction the Cubs had... Read more »

Search for Dignity--Cardinals 2 Cubs 1

Search for Dignity--Cardinals 2 Cubs 1
Today was a good afternoon for lovers of pitchers’ duels and nostalgia. Adam Wainwright and Cole Hamels both turned back the clock making everyone feel at least five years younger temporarily. Adam Wainwright‘s resurgence was a bit more miraculous and unfortunately a bit more impressive as he twirled eight shutout innings. Cole Hamels feel victim... Read more »
