Big Bad Cole--Cubs 10 Rockies 1

Big Bad Cole--Cubs 10 Rockies 1
There are times where a true ace just puts a team on his back and carries them to a win. Jon Lester has been noted for this ability over time. So much so that many call him Big Bad Jon or maybe some other more profane nickname when he dominates as a stopper. This afternoon in Colorado... Read more »

Another Night at the Not So Fun House--Rockies 10 Cubs 3

Another Night at the Not So Fun House--Rockies 10 Cubs 3
Absence did not make the heart grow fonder when it comes to the Cubs hitters and young Rockies hurler Peter Lambert.

Cubs at Rockies: Series Preview (6/10-6/12)

Cubs at Rockies: Series Preview (6/10-6/12)
The Cubs are riding as high as you possibly can into Denver. Well I suppose that isn’t true, but there is still certainly a post-St. Louis series sweep afterglow in the air. The starting pitching has been good to great again, and that can carry a team pretty far even without a lineup nearly as... Read more »

It's Supposed to Hurt--Rockies 2 Cubs 1 (13 innings)

The Cubs had to win one game in October to get to play at least three more. The starting pitching was good as it had been down the stretch. The bullpen was good enough, but the Cubs scored just one run or fewer the same number of times the Baltimore Orioles did this year with... Read more »
