Passing the Baton--Cubs 5 Diamondbacks 1

Passing the Baton--Cubs 5 Diamondbacks 1
It is cliché but it truly does all start with the starters. Once again Joe Maddon was able to manage an easy ballgame as his starter pitched deep into the game. It was a sight for sore eyes as the Professor finally looked like the Professor. Hendricks matched Cole Hamels seven shutout innings and a... Read more »

Can't Stand the Way You Tease--Angels 6 Cubs 5

Can't Stand the Way You Tease--Angels 6 Cubs 5
All good things must come to end. Unfortunately for the 2019 Cubs that has come after just two games. This had the feeling of a team loss as the offense sprung to life late and wound up falling short in the end. Kyle Hendricks pitched a decent but not spectacular game. The bullpen gave the...

The 1997 Blues--Brewers 4 Cubs 2
First I must apologize for the extreme delay in the recap tonight. It is going to take a weekend or two before I get the timing of everything down once again it seems. While making dinner and getting a few school items in order, I had plenty of time to ponder whether this 4-2 loss... Read more »

Now What?--Braves 9 Cubs 4

Now What?--Braves 9 Cubs 4
The Cubs lost an ugly game again. It has been five straight frustrating losses. The defense was not good. The starter couldn’t pitch deep and that meant more innings from the leaky bullpen. The offense only showed up in the final inning, and it all added up to the Cubs first 1-5 start since 2012.... Read more »

Bye Bye Birdies -- Cubs 8, Cardinals 4

Cubs starter Kyle Hendricks went eight strong innings in Friday’s win over the Cardinals and the offense was equally on point in the victory. Hendricks had a 1-2-3 first inning against the Cardinals; he got a popout from Paul DeJong, a lineout from José Martínez, and a swinging strikeout from Matt Carpenter. Anthony Rizzo got...

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 »
