Trip Ends Not with a Bang but a Thud--Cubs 4 Nationals 5 (12)
Dusty Baker got a hell of a birthday present this evening. The Cubs had to settle for a 5-4 road trip as they let one slip through their fingers. Ben Zobrist started the game by hitting his ninth homer of the season. Jason Heyward doubled right after, and I was about to post something snarky... Read more »

Downing an Ace--Cubs 8 Nationals 6
You almost have to feel bad for opposing teams. The Nationals managed to grab an early lead. They had a bona fide ace on the mound, and it still became victory number 22 for the reincarnated ’27 Yankees. Facing the Cubs right now has to be a soul crushing experience. They are just so good...
