Anarchist's Brunch- Beware the Baseball cops…...
So it was a very infant Friday night. The Cubs were putting the finishing touches on a very exciting win. Justin Ruggiano, who has been stuffing it up my giggy since I called him one of the worst players in the game…Ooops. Mea culpa, just drove in Asmirendy Alcantara and the Cubs had a victory...

The Cubs tried to take their good play in Boston down the road to the Nation’s capitol against the very hairy and very talented Washington Nationals. While getting great set up service from “the Marlin Contingent”, Rizzo, Castro and the other Cubs went neville brother Bongo player on National starter Tanner Ro-oooaaaarrrrkkkk.  Meanwhile, Jason Hammel,...

It sure wasn’t pretty. It wasn’t how you’d draw it up. And when we look back on this season, I doubt we’ll point to the first week of june as any kind of turning point. But the Cubs got their first three game sweep of the season and first sweep of the new York mets... Read more »

The hype surrounding the fact that Jeff Samardzija hadn’t gotten a win in his last 16 starts had reached ridiculous levels a week or two ago. Whether it led to a debate on the importance of the win as a stat, led to another analasys of why Samardzija might try and force his way off... Read more »

Born under a bad sign. Brewers 4 Cubs 3.
Recently, every Jeff Samardzija start has dissolved into an old school/ new school debate about the importance of “the Win” and how un fair it is that Jeff has pitched so well and doesn’t have a win to show for it. Well. Samardzija found a way around that debate today. Samardzija couldn’t overcome some spotty... Read more »

Back to that same ol' place…. White Sox 3 Cubs 1.

Back to that same ol' place…. White Sox 3 Cubs 1.
So…. What to make of Monday night’s frigid affair between Chicago’s baseball teams North and South?  A classic duel  between the some of the league’s elite pitchers? Perhaps. A study in two poorly balanced, majorly flawed lineups? Possibly. A mixture of the two? That’s probably it. Yes the White Sox did enter the game with... Read more »

Dear Diary….. A live blog of today's Cubs 7-5 loss.
2:20 – Well, let’s get this out of the way right now. The Federals uniforms just rock! So good. Always like the nameless backs. The skinnier pinstripes. Very nice. When Ricketts goes for another cash grab to help climb Debt Mountain, a third jersey in the old school Federal look will not be the worst... Read more »

So the first pressing need is to work out a package deal of Darwin Barney and Nate Schierholtz to the Tigers. But if the Tigers sign Stephen Drew then that’s off but we could probably still trade Schierholtz and then send Barney to the Yankees or possibly the Mets or Marlins. Hammel is clearly this...

The Anarchist's Brunch- Sneak Previews.
One of my favorite movie experiences wasn’t even a movie. It was a sneak preview. I had somehow gotten tickets to the US premiere of Tim Burton’s “Planet of the Apes”. I can look back and laugh at it now. But back then, it was Tim Burton, it had monkeys, it was a premiere. I... Read more »

Anarchist's Brunch- Shoot Theo!!!! That's all you had to say….
It didn’t take much. It took long enough, mind you, but it didn’t take much to get the bad taste of the off-season out of my mouth. I knew the answer was there. In fact I had heard other people say it. But you need to hear it from the right people saying it the... Read more »
