Survive--Rockies 11 Cubs 4

Survive--Rockies 11 Cubs 4
This game got ugly quick. Second half Jason Hammel made an unexpected and unwelcome reappearance in his former home ballpark. David Dahl and DJ LaMahieu began the game hitting back to back singles. Nolan Arenado then crushed a home run to give the Rockies an early lead. The wheels came off quickly as Gerardo Parra... Read more »

Game 123 Preview: Cubs @ Rockies 3:10pm CST
I was at a wedding last night in Wisconsin for a good friend of mine. We laughed, drank, and danced like no one was watching. Except a lot of people were watching. Anyway, I was unable to participate in watching the Cubs game as a result of this lovely occasion. Another good friend of mine,... Read more »

Game 122 Preview--Cubs at Rockies--7:10 PM
The Rockies bring out the weirdness in their opponents. At least that seems to be the case with the Cubs. It doesn’t matter the home ballpark as one of my favorite games was played at Wrigley, but the Coors Field effect with or without humidor is certainly part of the equation. Many of us are...

A bitter sweet surrender. Rockies 7 Cubs 5
The Cubs finally showed some life, some fight, and some timely hitting. Of course, this was in the last inning of the last game of a three-day stinkfist against the Rockies. But hey, it clearly was effort. The Cubs solidified their hold on the #2 pick (and yes, the whole whopping extra 1.whatever million dollars... Read more »

Brain farts keep raining on my head. Stones 6 Cubs 0
The Cubs continue to asphyxiate themselves on the lack of oxygen in the mile high air- not getting hits of awful pitchers, giving up runs to AAA players and perfecting the art of how not to execute a sacrifice fly. The Cubs once again got help from a higher source, as rain would delay the... Read more »

The Cubs and the Rockies battled in the rain for 6 innings with the Rockies having a 10-5 lead. Finally Mother Nature, who had been hinting from the start that this game should have been called early, finally had enough and threw enough water down that even clueless umpire Jim Joyce decided to halt proceedings....

Two steps behind. Rockies 4 Cubs 3

Two steps behind. Rockies 4 Cubs 3
The Cubs and Rockies continued their less-than-stellar baseball series Saturday afternoon. It was hard to tell whether one team was trying to win or the other team was trying to give the game away. In the end, a missed double play allowed the Rockies to get the go-ahead run and hold on for a 4-3... Read more »

The air show returns. Cubs 5 Rox 3

The Cubs came back to town after going on a 1-6 road trip, took on the very unfortunate Colorado Rockies and immediately outdrew the White Sox-Yankees crowd. They also played a baseball game in which the Cubs held an opponent, came from behind, and nailed down a win. It’s true. Saw it happen. With the... Read more »
