I'm Too Sad to Come Up With a Lame Butler Pun But Here is a Picture of a Famous Butler Anyway--Rockies 9 Cubs 1
The Rockies and Cubs played a game because MLB made them. The Rockies remain a frustrating enigma for the Cubs to crack and the first inning was a perfect michrochasm of virtually every Cubs loss. Charlie Blackmon started the game with a groundball single that squibbed through the infield. DJ LaMahieu ripped a double that... Read more »

Mike Montgomery did his job to start the game. A single and a walk gave the Rockies a scoring chance, but he kept them off the board with a Carlos Gonzalez fly out. Ian Happ struck out yet again to start the Cubs half of the first inning against German Marquez and Kris Bryant grounded... Read more »

Non Habit Forming Sleep Aid--Rockies 4 Cubs 1

Non Habit Forming Sleep Aid--Rockies 4 Cubs 1
I haven’t had issues with sleep recently, but this one would have been a great sleep aid. Kris Bryant started the scoring as he launched a high fastball for a one out solo shot in the bottom of the first. Tyler Chatwood retired Anthony Rizzo and Ben Zobrist relatively easily. Jon Lester retired the first... Read more »

Remain Calm--Rockies 10 Cubs 4
Jake Arrieta and Antonio Senzatela traded zeroes for the first two innings, but you knew that wouldn’t last long in Coors. That is especially true given the small jams each man escaped from in the second frame. Kyle Schwarber led off the third inning with a double, and the Cubs manufactured a run. Kris Bryant...

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

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

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

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 »

Rocky Mountain Way down... Rockies 10 Cubs 5
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....
