Looking, looking for me somewhere. Brewers 5 Cubs 2.
The Cubs traveled 90 miles north to face their rivals the Milwaukee Brewers and former teammate Matt Garza. Garza was known for being a jovial teammate, constantly keeping the clubhouse light and cracking jokes. Well, tonight the joke was on the Cubs as Garza made good on his promise to “shove it up the Cubs... Read more »

Cubs Q and A with Sun Times Gordon Wittenmyer Part 2: Ricketts, 2014, Sveum
Yesterday we talked with Sun Times Cubs beat writer Gordon Wittenmyer. The discussion focused on the Cubs potential core players like Starlin Castro, Jeff Samardzija, and even Junior Lake. Today we talk bigger picture, an area where Wittenmyer has delved into quite a bit with his work. Here is part two. TL: Gordon, another area... Read more »

Giving a dead bird to a blind kid. Cubs 6 Cardinals 4.

Giving a dead bird to a blind kid. Cubs 6 Cardinals 4.
The Cubs tried to rebound from a tough loss yesterday in a rare Saturday night game against the the Cardinals. The Cubs brought their hitting gloves and Matt Garza, POSSIBLY PITCHING HIS LAST GAME AS A CUB, kept the Nl’s leading offense at bay as the Cubs took their second game of the series. Lance...

The worst is over for Cubs

The worst is over for Cubs
It really wasn’t the 4 game winning streak or winning 9 out of 13 that had me feeling better about all things Cubs yesterday. We know all too well there is still a long way to go. However, I think we can now realistically say the worst is behind this outfit. The toughest phase of... Read more »

Yeah you swept me away. Cubs 8 White Sox 2.

Yeah you swept me away. Cubs 8 White Sox 2.
The Cubs looked to give the good times going and add to the south siders misery in their make up game Monday night at Bad Cell Service Park. And thanks to a veteran finding the fountain of youth, and a pitcher greasing his skids out of town, that’s exactly what happened. Alfonso Soriano hit a... Read more »

Cubs need to win Garza trade

Cubs need to win Garza trade
We interrupt the Starlin Castro bashing for a bit to look at the Matt Garza trade market. In a very timely matter, Garza has gotten as hot as a firecracker (See what I did there). Things are lining up quite nicely for the Cubs, as they have the biggest and best trade chip on the... Read more »

The hero of the day. Cubs 3 A's 1.

The hero of the day. Cubs 3 A's 1.
The first play of the game last night between the Cubs and the A’s featured 290 lb. Bartolo Colon huffing it from the pitcher’s mound to first base to cover the throw. And if you were an A’s fan, that’s about as entertaining as it got. Matt Garza basically head locked and noogied the A’s... Read more »

Anarchist's Brunch- It's supposed to hurt.

Anarchist's Brunch- It's supposed to hurt.
So I came home from a wonderful Social Distortion concert and the first thing I see when I turn on the television is Alfonso Soriano and Dioner Navarro hitting home runs and the Cubs taking a 4-1 lead. Life was pretty sweet. Then the bullpen went to work. And my happiness wained. Then it died.... Read more »

Like I blister in the sun. Cubs 7 Brewers 2

Like I blister in the sun. Cubs 7 Brewers 2
Maybe the Cubs woke up from their nap.  Or perhaps they had enough bad water downed beer and just got pissed off. Whatever the reason, the Cubs realized they were playing the Brewers and treated them as such. Dioner Navarro hit a three run home run and Matt garza was simply outstanding in what could...

Thanks to all for the anniversary wishes and the kind words yesterday.  It was indeed nice to have a “day off” but it’s back to work today and perhaps it’s just in time.
