Series Preview: Cubs vs Giants 5/22-5/25

Series Preview: Cubs vs Giants 5/22-5/25
The Cubs and Giants face each other for this first time since last year’s NLDS, and it is a good example of how things can change once the season starts. The Cubs appear to have broken the Giants. San Francisco has gotten off to a dreadful start with a 19-26 record and sit in fourth... Read more »

Travis Wood Hits Dingers: Cubs 5, Giants 2

Travis Wood Hits Dingers: Cubs 5, Giants 2
This is not how Jeff Samardzija envisioned his night going, I’m sure of that. During a regular season game, he probably gets a few more innings to redeem himself, but after giving up four runs in the first two innings, his night was over. The damage by then was done, and the Cubs are now... Read more »

NLDS Game 2 Preview: Cubs vs Giants - 7:00pm CST
Yesterday was the worst. I woke up nervous. Went to work nervous. Walked to Wrigley nervous. And watched a baseball game nervous as hell. Sure, I do it to myself. I can’t help it. I am, after all, a fan. But it was all worth it. And if you missed it (I’m not sure why that... Read more »

Game 133 Preview--Cubs vs. Giants--7:05 PM

Game 133 Preview--Cubs vs. Giants--7:05 PM
A little under a calendar year ago, the Cubs swept the San Francisco Giants at home to start their late season run to the second wildcard spot. This year the Cubs need no such spark coming off an unbelievable 22-6 August and 15 game division lead. The Cubs lead for the National League’s best record... Read more »

Anarchist's Brunch- Let's gripe about two.

Anarchist's Brunch- Let's gripe about two.
The Cubs had their first scheduled double header since 1983 and now have their first Sunday off since the 1930’s.  And they can use that day off because after winning the first two games of the series Thursday and Friday, the Cubs came out trying, ended up folding, and wound up getting swept in the...

Small moves Mouse. Then we'll take another one. Reds 6 Cubs 1.

Small moves Mouse. Then we'll take another one. Reds 6 Cubs 1.
Baseball truly is an incredible game. An inch or two here or there. A split second here or there. Last night’s 6-1 loss to the Cincinnati Redlegs could have gone any which way. Instead it went the way a lot of Cubs games have gone, with the Cubs losing.  But don’t let the score fool... Read more »

Mayonaise and Marmalade. Miami 6 Cubs 5.
A rare misstep by the Cubs bullpen caused the not so rare happening of Jeff Samardzija missing out on a win and the Cubs snatching defeat from the jaws of victory last night at Tax Fraud stadium in Little Havana, Miami. The Cubs roared out to a 3-1 lead on the strength of a  Junior... Read more »

One man wrecking machine. Andrew McCutchen 4 Cubs 0

One man wrecking machine. Andrew McCutchen 4 Cubs 0
When Writing yesterday’s wrap, I totally spaced last night’s game. I previewed tonight’s match against Fausto Carmona and the Phillies instead. Totally forgot there was a 4th game against the Pirates.  Apparently, the Cubs read that too as they really didn’t show up and let the carcus of Edison Volquez dominate them in a 4-0... Read more »

There's something happening that's not quite right. Cubs 5 Marlins 2.

There's something happening that's not quite right. Cubs 5 Marlins 2.
In an 162 game season, you’re bound to repeat yourself with wraps. Teams are what teams are. And we all know when the Cubs couldn’t hit a Bull in the took us with a snow shovel that the wraps were starting to sound a lot a like. So it’s only fair that now the Cubs... Read more »

Three, three, three for my heartache. Brewers 9 Cubs 0

Three, three, three for my heartache. Brewers 9 Cubs 0
Jeff Samardzija did his best Travis Wood impersonation and Cub fans got an early jump onto I-94 as the brewers routed the Cubs 9-0 for the series win at Miller Park. Roidy Braun led off the scoring with his second first inning home run of the series. Before then he hadn’t homered in Miller Park... Read more »
