Myles Monday Meltdown: Hendricks is the One, Schwarber is Good, and Poor Hawk

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 »

Inexplicable--Pirates 2 Cubs 1 (11 innings)

Inexplicable--Pirates 2 Cubs 1 (11 innings)
This year has been simply inexplicable. The Cubs have done something that has literally never occured before. The Cubs went four straight games hitting exactly one solo home run. Strangely that was good enough to net two wins in a series split in Pittsburgh. The Cubs had one of the largest comebacks ever earlier in... Read more »

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 »
