Neglekted. Reds 7 Cubs 4.

Mat Latos and his impressive tattoos started for the Reds. Latos had a 20 inning streak without allowing a run coming into this game....
It was a game that felt over early but took forever regardless. The Cubs prize free agent pickup continues to sputter and while the Cubs got some gifts from the Reds, the Cubs were in just as big a giving mood- handing the Reds runs in a 7-4 loss to get swept by Dusty troops... Read more »

Why oh why didn't I take the blue pill? Reds 5 Cubs 3

Why oh why didn't I take the blue pill? Reds 5 Cubs 3
It just figured that when I got done saying that the Chicago Cubs bullpen had been doing a great job recently and that Jason Berken might be the worst pitcher in the National League that a game like today would happen.  Jason Berken shutout the Louisville Bats, err, Cincinnati Reds for 6 innings only to...

I see red. Reds 6 Cubs 5

I see red. Reds 6 Cubs 5
A rare David Dejesus miscue led to the go ahead run in the 10th inning to give the Reds a 6-5 victory. The victory came at the expense of a very nice Cubs comeback, who not only battled starting pitcher Mike Leake, a swirling 30 mph wind, but their own stupidity. Down 5-1 in the... Read more »

Madder Red. Reds 3 Cubs 1.

Madder Red. Reds 3 Cubs 1.
Despite starting at an actual real starting time, and despite a much better opponent, and despite the fact that it was 20 degrees colder, tonight’s 3-1 loss was very similar to yesterday’s 3-0 finale to the Pirates. One bad inning by the starting pitcher in which all the runs were scored, the Cubs inept ability... Read more »

I almost forgot fellow babies....Boo-ger!!!! Reds 5 Cubs 4

I almost forgot fellow babies....Boo-ger!!!! Reds 5 Cubs 4
Apologies for not posting a second game wrap last night. But social duties called and by the time I was ready to say something, both John and Tom had posted and carried the conversation in another direction. Will try to fold some thoughts from last night into today’s wrap. The Cubs showed a lot of... Read more »

Ho!!! Johnny Cueto!!! Reds 5 Cubs 3

Ho!!! Johnny Cueto!!! Reds 5 Cubs 3
The Cubs sent their de-facto “ace out against the Reds and their true ace this afternoon in the first of two games against the Central division leading Red legs. But Samardzija made one more mistake than Johnny Cueto and Todd Frazier, who the Cubs are turning into Mickey Mantle, made them pay, and the Cubs... Read more »

Cubs Brawls Part 2: The Kyle Farnsworth Fight (Video)

A couple of days ago I posted some memorable bench clearing brawls the Cubs have had over the past several decades. A picture does not do it justice. Thanks to reader and fellow Cubs blogger Brandon, who posted a link to the video. I’m posting it now for those people who did not see it... Read more »

Will Marty Brennaman eat crow...again?

Will Marty Brennaman eat crow...again?
Can the Cubs contend this season? If you ask Marty Brennaman, then the answer is no.  From Arizona, Cincinnati Reds announcer offered this assessment, “The Cubs have a chance to be improved. I don’t think they’re good enough to win the division. I think their defense is very suspect. They have a kid (Carlos Pena)... Read more »
