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 »

NLCS Game 5 Preview: Cubs @ Dodgers - 7:08 pm

NLCS Game 5 Preview: Cubs @ Dodgers - 7:08 pm
The difference that last night’s win makes is that it has reset this series and essentially made it a best of three, and with two of those three games happening at Wrigley Field. We assured another Clayton Kershaw start, of course, but had the Cubs won on Tuesday night, that probably would have happened tonight... Read more »

NLCS Game 3 Preview: Cubs vs. Dodgers - 7:08 pm
The most important Cubs series since the last one has shifted once again to the West Coast, and the situation feels somewhat similar to the last one despite the difference in standings. The Cubs have lost the one game they faced a generational pitcher, and now have to win the other games in the series.... 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 »

Game 129 Preview--Cubs at Dodgers--3:10 PM
Day 2 of fleamageddon has already begun in my household, and will still probably be going on while the Cubs attempt to win the rubber match of this battle of first place clubs. Though referring to these teams as both being first place clubs is sort of like referring to the top prospect in the... Read more »

The One Where My Cats Have Fleas--Dodgers 3 Cubs 2

The One Where My Cats Have Fleas--Dodgers 3 Cubs 2
This is going to be a weird one. The Cubs are playing great baseball despite a frustrating loss this afternoon into evening. It marks just the fifth time the Cubs have lost in the month of August, but I have had a rough 24 hours. We own a lot of animals in our household. Both... Read more »

Game 127 Preview--Cubs at Dodgers--9:10 PM

Game 127 Preview--Cubs at Dodgers--9:10 PM
The Cubs hit their last stop on the West Coast swing this road trip. It is a lot harder test than the previous stop with visiting Chavez Ravine and the first place Dodgers. But the Dodgers injury woes in the rotation might make it an ideal time to visit a first place club. The Cubs... Read more »

Game Preview 52--Cubs vs. Dodgers--1:20 PM

Game Preview 52--Cubs vs. Dodgers--1:20 PM
The Cubs are going for yet another series win. The Cubs continue to pile up wins, and the lead in the division grows larger. All of this as the offense continues to sputter. The suddenly strike out prone Ben Zobrist gets the day off, but the rest of the Cubs get to face the extremely... Read more »

Game 51 Preview--Cubs vs. Dodgers

Game 51 Preview--Cubs vs. Dodgers
All good things must come to an end, and so it was last night. The Cubs 6 game winning streak that washed away the angst of the week before is done. The Cubs lost a Jake Arrieta start for the first time since the Model T debuted. But the Cubs should have a much easier... Read more »

In a Mirror, Darkly--Dodgers 5 Cubs 0

In a Mirror, Darkly--Dodgers 5 Cubs 0
So after Cubs relievers allowed two runs to score in the eighth inning this title came to me. It was perfect as the Cubs were now poised to lose by the same score they won by yesterday. Then Trevor Cahill gave up a 3 run blast and had to spoil it. I am still going... Read more »
