The New Normal of Being a Cubs Fan

The New Normal of Being a Cubs Fan
So it’s been three weeks since the Cubs won the World Series in Cleveland. The fact that the Cubs are the best team in baseball is starting to sink in at least somewhat. As this fact becomes more established in the minds of Chicago fans, it’s producing an interesting reaction. Many fans don’t know how... Read more »

Crazy 8--Cubs 8 Cleveland 7

Crazy 8--Cubs 8 Cleveland 7
The Cubs are World Series Champions! There isn’t anything else that needs to be said after 108 years, but indulge me here a bit because this was an instant classic. And not merely for the result. Early on it didn’t seem that way. Corey Kluber was clearly not the guy that started Game 1 of... Read more »

I'm Jack's Raging Bile Duct--Cleveland 7 Cubs 2

I'm Jack's Raging Bile Duct--Cleveland 7 Cubs 2
It feels like the dream is slipping. The Cleveland team and its three pitchers continue to torment the Cubs. There will be all sorts of explanations if Cleveland continues to steam roll the Cubs, but I am not certain there is much to it beyond baseball being baseball. And that is incredibly frustrating realization. The... Read more »

Team of Density--Cubs 5 Dodgers 0

Team of Density--Cubs 5 Dodgers 0
It has happened. The Cubs are going to the World Series. The Cubs were supposedly the team with all the pressure on them. They had the ghosts of a long dead ghost or fans reaching out for a foul ball or some other nonsense weighing them down. Instead it was the Dodgers that came out... Read more »

Not as Much as Fun--Dodgers 1 Cubs 0

Not as Much as Fun--Dodgers 1 Cubs 0
This game felt an awful lot like game 1 of the NLDS. Unfortunately it was a lot more fun when the Cubs were on the opposite side of this type of game. The game started off revealing the pitcher’s duel that would unfold tonight. Kyle Hendricks retired the Dodgers in order on 11 pitches. Clayton... Read more »

What is This Strange Feeling?--Cubs 6 Giants 5

What is This Strange Feeling?--Cubs 6 Giants 5
This has been quite the roller coaster of emotions in the past 24 hours. The feelings were quite familiar. The Cubs blew a chance to sweep the series, and then spent most of tonight staring down the opportunity to bet Cueto and Bumgarner to make it to the NLCS. I knew these feelings. This. This...

NLDS Game 3 Preview--Cubs vs Giants--8:38 PM

NLDS Game 3 Preview--Cubs vs Giants--8:38 PM
The Cubs are one win away from going to the National League Championship in back to back seasons for the first ever. All that stands in their way doing it tonight is Madison Bumgarner. It is funny what the passage of time can do. Warp this pitching matchup a calendar year ago, and I think... Read more »

Woo!--Cubs 1 Giants 0

Woo!--Cubs 1 Giants 0
There are very few benefits or privileges being the lead recap writer at Cubs Den. Don’t get me wrong it is a privilege to write here, but there is very little I get from a virtually meaningless title. One privilege though was getting to claim game 1 of this series, and boy did I pick... Read more »
