Myles Monday Meltdown: It All Comes Down to This
How are you doing today? Nervous? Excited? Nauseous? All three? This is funny: For me, I’m mostly finding the whole situation hilarious and nuts.

Good Q Not Good Enough With Slumping O--Reds 2 Cubs 1
I am making a bad habit of needing to apologize at the start of these, but I just didn’t have it in me last night to write this when I finally crawled into bed. The Cubs dropped the game, but the Brewers finally hit a skid bringing the Cubs magic number down a game. José... Read more »

Happy--Cubs 3 Brewers 0

Happy--Cubs 3 Brewers 0
José Quintana hasn’t been what the Cubs thought they were getting when trading for him. He also hasn’t been as terrible as some think. There is no question that there is something about Q when he faces the Brewers. The 6.2 scoreless innings tonight brought his career ERA against the Brew Crew down to a... Read more »

Panic Averted--Cubs 6 Brewers 4

The series started on a sour note with the bullpen coughing up a late lead. The second game was just baseball happening, but the Cubs were in danger of leaving Milwaukee very much alive in the division race. The Cubs missed their opportunity to bury the Brewers but they at least kept the Brewers at... Read more »

Good Q, Bad L--Phillies 2 Cubs 1 (10 innings)

Good Q, Bad L--Phillies 2 Cubs 1 (10 innings)
The weather in Philadelphia last night matched the results of this one. The rain fell in the eraly innings and it seemed silly that the game was being played at all in the third or fourth inning. However the rains cleared and the Cubs were left with an extra inning loss and a few positives.... Read more »
