Bye Bye Birdies -- Cubs 8, Cardinals 4

Myles Monday Meltdown: Hendricks is the One, Schwarber is Good, and Poor Hawk
It’s been a long while since I’ve been able to get back on this Monday morning writing thing. Sometimes, the “real” job gets in the way. But what a better time to pick it back it up than when the Cubs magic number is 5. Also, my new iPhone comes today. What a special week... Read more »

Five--Cubs 6 White Sox 1

Five--Cubs 6 White Sox 1
“This ballgame is ovah.” The words are familiar after all these years and the inflection conveyed the scoreline. The entire afternoon was a fitting end for the career of longtime broadcaster on the Southside. There was something poetic in a caricature whom the game had long passed by having his moment spoiled by his most... Read more »

Greatest Professor Since Indiana Jones- Cubs 5, D-Backs 1

Greatest Professor Since Indiana Jones- Cubs 5, D-Backs 1
Despite a hit and miss offense, the Cubs have gotten a lot of excellent pitching in the month of September. Kyle Hendricks had perhaps the best start of a month of great starts Monday. He totally dominated the Diamondbacks en route to an easy win. The professor allowed just one hit the first five innings,... Read more »

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA *deep breath* HHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!--Brewers 5 Cubs 1

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA *deep breath* HHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!--Brewers 5 Cubs 1
The Cubs did the minimum in their important series against the Brewers. Unfortunately the offense’s deep freeze continued and the bullpen continues to be leaky as the Brewers leave town down a mere game. Curtis Granderson was inserted into the starting lineup in the leadoff spot, and it shows the difference between the hands Craig... Read more »

Just Another Last At Bat Win--Cubs 6 Nationals 4 (10 innings)

Just Another Last At Bat Win--Cubs 6 Nationals 4 (10 innings)
The Cubs notched win number 83. They have equaled their high water mark over .500, and it was the 44th time that the Cubs have come from behind. The Professor was very good early on and then some struggles in the middle. Still it was enough as the Cubs offense tacked on enough late to... Read more »

Easy Win--Cubs 7 Phillies 1

The Cubs picked up the game they lost last night, and really it was just a fun night at the ballpark for the Cubs. Kyle Hendricks was solid again for another one of those larger stories we are watching, but tonight the story was the lineup breaking out early and often. Zach Eflin couldn’t settle... Read more »
