Dream on. and dream until your dreams come true. Cubs 16. Red Sox 9.

Dream on. and dream until your dreams come true. Cubs 16. Red Sox 9.
Corner turned? Happy days again back at Clark and Addison?  With the major league club playing better ball and good to great news coming from the minor leagues on a daily basis, it’s actually been fun to be a Cub fan these days. Of course, there’s still the standings and the fact that these games... Read more »

Lord I must be dreaming, what else could this be? Cubs 2 Red Sox 0.

Lord I must be dreaming, what else could this be? Cubs 2 Red Sox 0.
  Jake Arrieta is pitching like he not only wants a spot in the rotation for the Cubs foreseeable future, but he might soon be throwing around words like “Homer Bailey money” and “TOR pitcher” Arrieta was a six pack of Hops Stoopid last night, keeping Red Sox batters, off balance, frustrated and most importantly...

In a game that would have made Uncle Milton Berle very proud, the Cubs pulled out just enough to win last night. Chris Coghlan, the right handed Ryan Kalish, smacked a tying home run in the 8th inning. And Nate Schierholtz, who’s name is popping up more recently in good ways, drove in the winning... Read more »

Three, three, three for my heartache. Brewers 9 Cubs 0

Three, three, three for my heartache. Brewers 9 Cubs 0
Jeff Samardzija did his best Travis Wood impersonation and Cub fans got an early jump onto I-94 as the brewers routed the Cubs 9-0 for the series win at Miller Park. Roidy Braun led off the scoring with his second first inning home run of the series. Before then he hadn’t homered in Miller Park... Read more »

Roll away the dew. Cubs 8 Giants 4.

Roll away the dew. Cubs 8 Giants 4.
The hype surrounding the fact that Jeff Samardzija hadn’t gotten a win in his last 16 starts had reached ridiculous levels a week or two ago. Whether it led to a debate on the importance of the win as a stat, led to another analasys of why Samardzija might try and force his way off... Read more »

Back to that same ol' place…. White Sox 3 Cubs 1.

Back to that same ol' place…. White Sox 3 Cubs 1.
So…. What to make of Monday night’s frigid affair between Chicago’s baseball teams North and South?  A classic duel  between the some of the league’s elite pitchers? Perhaps. A study in two poorly balanced, majorly flawed lineups? Possibly. A mixture of the two? That’s probably it. Yes the White Sox did enter the game with... Read more »

We could bind it in the sist, we could gather, throw a fit. Snakes 5 Cubs 2.

The Cubs tried to erase the bad taste of yesterday’s loss to the Arizona Diamondbacks today and win their first series of the season. But like Sisyphus’ rock or Spinal Tap’s stage directions, what started out as a path to new heights and wonderful possibilities took a quick U-turn and wound up in the familiar... Read more »

Set us up till we're dead. Reds 4 Cubs 1.

Set us up till we're dead. Reds 4 Cubs 1.
The Cubs came home thinking, maybe hoping, that sleeping in their own beds and putting on the white and blue pinstripes might be the cure for what’s been ailing their ball club. Instead, what they got was a heaping helping of more of the same friday afternoon. Competent pitching, inept hitting, and a frustrating loss,... Read more »

Anarchist's Brunch- The Bull Market of Spring…..
So the first pressing need is to work out a package deal of Darwin Barney and Nate Schierholtz to the Tigers. But if the Tigers sign Stephen Drew then that’s off but we could probably still trade Schierholtz and then send Barney to the Yankees or possibly the Mets or Marlins. Hammel is clearly this...

Cubs hoping to find ideal platoon in RF

Cubs hoping to find ideal platoon in RF
The Cubs tried to maximize value by using platoons last year with mixed success.  We’ve talked about putting players in positions and situation where they can succeed. It worked at 3B where the Valbuena/Ransom/Murphy Voltron made for a passable starting MLB 3B, something none of them could have done on their own.  That trio combined... Read more »
