Home Run Derby Recap

Home Run Derby Recap
I’m going to come right out and say this, I will give short shrift to the non-Cubs match ups in this derby recap. Man, was that a lot of fun to watch especially Kyle and Javy. Let’s get to the dongs shall we? First the non-Cubs in the opening round. Rhys Hoskins hit 17 homers... Read more »

Myles Monday Meltdown: I Went to San Diego to See a Sweep

Myles Monday Meltdown: I Went to San Diego to See a Sweep
The title pretty much sums it up. But in case you didn’t read it for some reason, I went to San Diego this weekend to see the Cubs take on the Padres at Petco Park. I’ve had the opportunity to visit San Deigo a couple times, but I’ve never had the opportunity to take in a... Read more »

Train Keeps a Rollin'--Cubs 5 Tigers 3

Train Keeps a Rollin'--Cubs 5 Tigers 3
The title is something I’ve used before. I know I have. It happens when you’ve written a couple hundred of these by this point, but there really isn’t something better to describe what exactly the Cubs did today. The bats were cold to start, but once the game was tied it didn’t feel like the... Read more »

Another Win in New York--Cubs 7 Mets 4

Another Win in New York--Cubs 7 Mets 4
The Cubs came out in solidarity with Tyler Chatwood. The team wore high socks to try to give a little confidence boost to the wild righty. In the early innings it didn’t work. Chatwood walked two in the first three innings, and one of them scored on the home run by Brandon Nimmo. Chatwood settled... Read more »

Myles Monday Meltdown: All the plays

Myles Monday Meltdown: All the plays
The Cubs took three of four on the road in Cincinnati this weekend, which is good. That’s what you’re supposed to do against a team that just isn’t that great. There was a lot of drama, homers, and runs. So instead of rehashing everything in words, why don’t we just enjoy some of the top plays... Read more »

Series Preview: Cubs vs Brewers (4/26 - 4/29)

Series Preview: Cubs vs Brewers (4/26 - 4/29)
I keep hearing about the rivalry that is brewing (pun INTENDED) between Milwaukee and the Cubs. I’m glad for that. I remember towards the end of the Derek Lee and Aramis Ramirez years, these series were always fun and even got a bit chippy. We’ll always have the Cardinals rivalries no matter how good the Cubs...

He's On Fire--Cubs 16 Rockies 5

He's On Fire--Cubs 16 Rockies 5
It is good to be able to play two games in a row. It is especially good when the offense is rolling like it is right now. The Cubs struck early and often in this one. Albert Almora led off for the second day in a row, and rewarded Joe Maddon with a groundball single... Read more »

Cubs @ Rockies: Series Preview (4/20-4/22)

Cubs @ Rockies: Series Preview (4/20-4/22)
The Cubs find themselves at 8-8 after going 3-4 on their weather ravaged seven-game home swing. Chicago’s play has been as inconsistent as that .500 record indicates. They have been shutout four times so far this young season, yet they have also scored eight or more runs six times. Offense will be important as the... Read more »

Why Him?--Pirates 6 Cubs 1

Why Him?--Pirates 6 Cubs 1
Francisco Cervelli is moving higher and higher on my personal list of Cubs killer every series it seems. Kyle Hendricks struggled with his command and was perhaps squeezed a bit throughout the day. He managed to get Adam Frazier to ground out on a 3-2 pitch to start the game, but Gregory Polanco launched a... Read more »
