Loose lips have fallen on deaf ears. Braves 10 Cubs 7.
half the Cubs played like they were double parked and way too eager to get going on their 5 day All-Star Break. Some Cubs stuck around and tried to make a game of it. But a 7-0 lead is a hard hole to dig out of and the Cubs simply didn’t have enough paws on... Read more »

Corner turned? Happy days again back at Clark and Addison?  With the major league club playing better ball and good to great news coming from the minor leagues on a daily basis, it’s actually been fun to be a Cub fan these days. Of course, there’s still the standings and the fact that these games... Read more »

Against the NL Central the Cubs have some kind of nervous tick that prevents them from playing their best baseball, overcoming adversity and finding ways to win instead of looking for ways to lose baseball games. Thankfully, the Washington Nationals play ball in the National league East. So when the Nats fought their back to... Read more »

Anarchist's Brunch- About last night. Pirates 5 Cubs 3
Last night, the Pirates and Cubs waited out a two hour rain delay before eventually playing a baseball game Saturday night. Sadly fans should have been rooting for the rain. Too many old Cub mistakes- defensive lapses, thoughtless pitches, misguided at-bats etc. led the Cubs to give away a game they were leading and a... Read more »

So the Cubs, with the worst road record in the national league and starting a pitcher who has a road ERA over 7 and BA against over .300 go in to Philadelphia and just slam the door on the down trodden Phillies. That, my friends is why they play the games. On a beautiful day... Read more »

The great thing about baseball is there’s usually a game the next day to erase whatever happened before. Last night, the Cubs couldn’t hit a bull in the rear with a snow shovel. Tonight, Anthony Rizzo took the third Francisco Liriano pitch he saw and deposited it 400 feet into the last row of the... Read more »

It sure wasn’t pretty. It wasn’t how you’d draw it up. And when we look back on this season, I doubt we’ll point to the first week of june as any kind of turning point. But the Cubs got their first three game sweep of the season and first sweep of the new York mets... Read more »

Sorry for the late wrap. But the game went long and it was a Friday night. Besides the Blackhawks were, and still are, participating in one of the best hockey series they have ever played in their entire existence. Plus I thought I’d let Arguello tell you all about how Kris Bryant hit his 19th... Read more »

BOUT LAST NIGHT- ALL DRESSED UP ON WEDDING DAY, STILL TRIPPIN ANYWAY. Cubs rebounded from a God awful performance to giving you the kind of performance that inspires you both short term and long term as a Cubs fan. Taking advantage of great starting pitching from Travis Wood, the Cubs got enough offense then turned... Read more »

Hey Dare. Ho Dare. Ya hey hey! Cubs 4 Brewers 2

Travis Wood took the bump for the Cubs trying to erase his worst start of the year in which he gave up 8 runs in just four innings of work. Ick...
Cubs went to their score just enough, let the starting pitcher pretend he’s the best starting pitcher on Earth routine, and hope that it’s enough act for the third day in a row. It failed Jeff Samardzija. It went the right way for Edwin Jackson. How would it work out for Travis Wood? Let’s go... Read more »
