Nationals DeJesus move a gift to Cubs

Nationals DeJesus move a gift to Cubs
I speculated when the Cubs moved Junior Lake to center field that another move could be in the works. I figured the Cubs had intentions on trading David DeJesus if he cleared waivers. It turns out it didn’t come to that. The Washington Nationals for whatever reason claimed DeJesus and the Cubs decided not to... Read more »

One of these days, when you figure it all out, you'll be sure to let us know. Phillies 9 Cubs 8.

One of these days, when you figure it all out, you'll be sure to let us know. Phillies 9 Cubs 8.
The Cubs hit the road Tuesday night, mostly to let Wrigley air out after stinking it up with a 1-7 home stand. But tonight was no different. Actually it was in every way different. This time the Cubs brought the bats, but the pitching let them down. And in the end, the result was the... Read more »

You never know when the bridge falls apart. Brewers sweep doubleheader 6-5, 3-2.

You never know when the bridge falls apart. Brewers sweep doubleheader 6-5, 3-2.
As a baseball fan, if you can step back and look at it, you have to appreciate the randomness and wild unpredictability that is baseball. But as a Cub fan, it is pound your glass on the bar so hard you pull shards of glass out of your face infuriating to watch this club come... Read more »

Such a beautiful disease. Cubs 6 Mets 3.

Such a beautiful disease. Cubs 6 Mets 3.
With the Cubs record against teams over .500 sitting at a robust 9-32, and the NL leading Cardinals just sitting over the horizon, the Cubs could use a really bad team to right their ship. And wouldn’t you know, there’s an awful one right here in Flushing, New York.  The Cubs took advantage of a... Read more »

Trading or Building Block series, part 3: The veterans

Trading or Building Block series, part 3: The veterans
This is the belated 3rd installment of the trade series and today we cover the veterans.  These are the players that will almost certainly be traded at some point this season if the Cubs can recoup any kind of long term value. There isn’t much of a question on these players, though there are reasons... Read more »

The Chill of victory...

The Chill of victory...
The Cubs, who could do little right in the beginning of the game, found a way to do almost everything right in the latter stages, coming back to beat the Brewers 6-3 in front of thousands of hypothermia victims in Wrigley Field. The Cubs started out like they started out their home opener, slow. The... Read more »

Who knew they had brooms in Atlanta...

Jeff Samardzija was the story in this game. He struck out the first 6 batters he faced.
Cubs got swept by the Atlanta Braves today, losing 5-1 despite Jeff Samardzija going all Wu-Tang and striking out 13 Braves. It’s Sunday, and i feel like trying something new. So let’s kick this pig Gallery style….

Dead bird. Gonna put it on you... Cubs 5 Cards 4

Dead bird. Gonna put it on you... Cubs 5 Cards 4
Darwin Barney hit a two strike, two out home run in the bottom of the ninth…. I’ll give you a second, those words aren’t typed every day…if ever…. to tie the Cardinals at 4-4 and Kim Dejesus’ husband would knock in the winner for a 5-4 Cubs win.  It was a great ending for a... Read more »

Nothin shakin on Shakedown Street. Giants 5 Cubs 2

Nothin shakin on Shakedown Street. Giants 5 Cubs 2
Perhaps it was a good night’s sleep. Or a fine Friday dinner at one of Chicago’s fine restaurants. Or maybe the absence of all those weird Iowa football fans had the Giants more at ease. Whatever the reason, the National League West leaders showed up more prepared today, and Justin Germano et al. weren’t up... Read more »

Is the Cubs plan working?

Is the Cubs plan working?
There was a moment in my radio interview where I let my optimism slip through.  I talked about getting to .500.  If they can get to that in a relatively weak division …who knows what can happen? I was a bit surprised.  I didn’t plan on saying anything like that, but when Josh Houchins talked... Read more »
