Cubs: it's not the losing as much as it is who's doing the losing

Dunno about you, but I find it to be a very bewildering time to be a Cub fan. As far as the whole “Ricketts Family puts hand out for public aid in a city run by Obama’s ex-chief of staff at the same time Pappy Joe decides to finance a Super PAC with the sole... Read more »

Cubs 2012 - Week 2 Recap

Cubs 2012 - Week 2 Recap
Let’s recap everything that matters thus far the past two weeks: Jeff Samardzija – barely finished a fifth inning that he entered with a nine-run lead.  Maybe he requires the rush of close competition.  It sure looked like he completely lost focus Friday evening.  Darwin Barney – does not hit like a starting big league...

Blind, unconditional trust in Theo Epstein must continue

Blind, unconditional trust in Theo Epstein must continue
On MLB radio today, Jim Memelo and Todd Hollandsworth noted quite correctly that if Jim Hendry was still in the Cubs’ GM chair, with the underwhelming lack of activity so far, that we Cubs fans would be storming 1060 W. Addison with torches and pitchforks.  I mean, eff you, Memelo…I don’t even own a pitchfork!... Read more »

This should be the first day of the rest of the Cubs' life. Why isn't it?

The 2011 Cubs season has been, even by our necessarily softened standards, a late-term abortion.  This admittedly vile and unacceptable analogy can apply equally well to the state of the franchise as a whole.  What’s the latest piece of evidence supporting this claim? Today is September 1st, when roster restrictions are lifted and clubs everywhere... Read more »

2011 Chicago Cubs Apocalypse Round Table

The 2011 Major League Baseball season is finally here. I don’t know about you, but I could only take so much more of debating whether Koyie Hill should be the back up catcher. In all likelihood, it’s highly unlikely that his inclusion on the roster will make or break the Cubs chances in 2011. The... Read more »

If there are not roster battles on the 2011 Cubs, there should be
We all know that there is some doubt as to whether or not we carry a fifth outfielder or a seventh Behind the Soriano/Byrd/Fooky/Colvin group in the outfield and the ARam/Castro/DeWitt/Baker/Pena infield combo, has Darwin Barney sewn up a spot?  How about Fernando Perez?  Scott Moore?  Soul Patch Johnson?  That’s one roster battle out there. ...

Readers' Blog: Winning

When pitchers and catchers reported to spring training sometime around Valentine’s Day, I had a hard time wrapping my head around the start of baseball season. There was still a ton of snow on the ground, the streets were lined with awful looking ‘dibs’ furniture and Brant Miller was showing pictures of icicles on the 10 p.m.... Read more »

Spring Training 2011 Mega Preview: Koyie Hill

  I wrote about Koyie Hill a couple weeks ago, and my stance hasn’t changed. “Three-Finger” Hill is a below average catcher at the plate and the Cubs are paying him too much to back up Geovany Soto. The Cubs paid over $800K for Hill, who really should invest wisely, because it should be the last paycheck he gets.... Read more »
