Cubs Make the First Cut for Ohtani

Cubs Make the First Cut for Ohtani
Shohei Ohtani is the most anticipated free agent signing of the offseason. He is perhaps the most unique player of the modern era. Ohtani is one of the youngest Japanese players to come over, and so any comparisons to previous imports is apples to oranges. He can hit 100 mph with his fastball, but is... Read more »

Sad Series Win--Padres 3 Cubs 2

Sad Series Win--Padres 3 Cubs 2
The Cubs failed to complete the sweep. It feels sad despite the fact that the Cubs are actually performing well right now. The game felt emblematic, and it is weird how it seems like every loss feels emblematic of the season. That is far different than last year when the team rattled off 103 wins.... Read more »

Would the team we expected please show up while it still matters. Please. Jake Arrieta struggled early in this game. After the Cubs went quietly in the first inning.

Game 125 Preview--Cubs at Padres--9:10 PM
The Cubs continue their westward swing. They have an excellent chance to continue to pile up wins. At this point of the season it isn’t terribly important who the wins come against. The Cubs just need to continue to maintain their lead so they have as stress free of September as possible. The result tonight... Read more »

What the Hell is That?--Padres 7 Cubs 4

What the Hell is That?--Padres 7 Cubs 4
Well this is a different feeling. I don’t think I like it. The game started out shaky for the Cubs. Kyle Hendricks walked the first batter of the game in Travis Jankowski. He stole second and would score on an error by Javy Baez. Wil Myers reached second on the error, and Matt Kemp’s single... Read more »

Another Notch--Cubs 8 Padres 7

Another Notch--Cubs 8 Padres 7
It can’t be fun to face the Cubs right now. It has to be even less fun making your fourth career start against this Cubs team, but Cesar Vargas had that unfortunate task. Vargas had pitched well the first three times out, and he retired the Cubs in order in the first inning. That trend... Read more »

Say hello to Friar Duck! Padres 2 Cubs 0

The new generation Cubs took the field at Jurassic Petco Park. And it had all the easiness of watching Bambi trying to ice skate. A fourth inning hiccup by the starting pitcher was all the Padres got, but it was all they needed as they cruised to a 2-0 win. Years from now, when (hopefully)... Read more »
