Have another donut!!!!!!! Cubs shut out and swept by Yankees. 2 and 3- Goose egg
So Epstoyer hit the snooze button throughout the off season and Cub fans get upset. Then all these poindexters who apparently have second guessed the Cubs to numerous championships that nobody knows about because they don’t exist, throw up their hands and say “What are you getting so upset for?”. Well, some of us got... Read more »

  Time to put on the Rhino Skin. Mr. Moody and I both agree that the biggest move made by the Cubs this year was the hiring of Rich Renteria. And of course, it will be impossible to judge how well he’s doing. After all, after year one Dale Sveum was judged to be doing... Read more »

Tanaka to sign with the Yankees

Well, the Cubs gave it a great effort but they came up short.   In the end, the bright lights of New York City and a chance to win next year probably won Tanaka over. The Cubs were always going to be a tough sell.  It’s tough to ask anyone to look at the big picture. ... Read more »

Tuesdays with Felsy- Let's all get a grip.
A bunch of odds and Sods as we desperately wait for Tanaka to pick a coast and for the Cubs to get to Spring training. - Yesterday was one of those days that made you question if indeed you were ever a fan of the Chicago Cubs and if you will ever be again going... Read more »

Cubs To Meet With Masahiro Tanaka

Cubs To Meet With Masahiro Tanaka
If you’ve been reading for the past 3 years, you know I don’t really go gaga about every free agent.  For me to talk about major free agents I need to believe that A) the Cubs can sign him and B) the Cubs want to sign him. That hasn’t happened very often. I didn’t talk... Read more »

Expect Theo and Jed to Pull Out All the Stops To Land Tanaka

Expect Theo and Jed to Pull Out All the Stops To Land Tanaka
An important note here before we start: Yes, we know money is king and that will be the primary factor in Masahiro Tanaka’s decision.  But history has shown that many times it isn’t the only factor. Recently we talked about a creative way to structure a deal to make it more difficult for some teams... Read more »

Why the Cubs could win the Tanaka sweepstakes

Why the Cubs could win the Tanaka sweepstakes
There is an argument that Tanaka will sign with the Yankees over the Cubs. It goes something like this: It’s because they’re the Yankees and they have money. Those things by themselves are indeed pretty formidable but the positives for the Yankees pretty much begin and end right there. Let’s put the money issue aside... Read more »

Cubs best strategy may be to hang on to Jeff Samardzija

Cubs best strategy may be to hang on to Jeff Samardzija
I hope everyone had a happy holiday.   The Cubs got a present of sorts when it was announced that Masahiro Tanaka would be made available this offseason.  As I have been saying since early last September, expect the Cubs to be in the thick of this pursuit with the caveat that it doesn’t mean...

Anarchist's Brunch- Orienting ourselves.

Anarchist's Brunch- Orienting ourselves.
I”m one of these old school Blackhawks fans. Which means I make up maybe 5-7% of the current Blackhawk fandom that’s currently stuffing the United Center to see the team play these days. That’s to be expected, Championships bring fans and bandwaggoners. The more the merrier I say. But what I’m leery about, and what... Read more »

Tuesdays with Felzzy- Killing the messenger.
My apologies for missing Brunch Sunday. Sometimes you wake up and it’s 12:30. Thankfully, I set the DVR to record the Liverpool game. Anyway, now that we’re halfway through the off-season and there isn’t a whole lot to talk about you might see a one-or-the-other week from me from time to time. Anyway, onwards… So... Read more »
