Personally, I got kind of excited Monday night, I think... Read more »

What it has come to: no (firetrucks) given about Cubs anymore (um, UPDATE)
In a world where: the Big 10 is now the Big 14 because of “geography”; the owner of the Marlins can essentially trade the Marlins to Toronto, and the Commissioner just yawns and rubber stamps it; two weeks after declaring the Bears as Super Bowl winners, fans want to cut all the players as well...

Thoughts from the Ass End of Night: So I’m up early on a Sunday morning, as ordered by the powers that be at my place of occupation. The good news is that for once, there is nothing to fear, everything is going well.  However, I’m up and must remain so in case the planned implementation... Read more »

More thoughts on the Start of the Reconstruction

More thoughts on the Start of the Reconstruction
I have watched more Cubs baseball this week than I have all season.  I totally understand this brands me as a sick, twisted individual who apparently has no life and no appreciation for quality.  The first of two reasons why I have watched the Cubs this week is because I figured they would win these...

Castro got paid - is this wise?

Castro got paid - is this wise?
Item #6 on Theo’s Checklist For World Domination: - follow existing players – cut the ones that suck, sign the ones that don’t to club-friendly extensions Starlin Castro got paid today.  I don’t just mean paid, like what he usually gets on the first and fifteenth.  I mean Paid like a bawss.  So now that...

The Cubs need to win trades more than games at this point

The Cubs need to win trades more than games at this point
If anyone still had any doubt whether or not to trade Matt Garza, or sign him to a long term deal, look no further than the first inning last night. The two homers he gave up sucked, sure.  But it was the thick-headed taffypull he had with that Francisco guy that should seal the deal... Read more »

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 »

Frustrating times both in Cub Nation in general and at Goatriders in particular

Been taking some shit from some of you about the brevity and the sparsity of our posts.  I could assume a lot of it is due to your frustration of being a Cubs fan.  I share your frustration.  The season is a month old and, what, Marmol has lost four goddancing games all by himself?  It was...

OMG, looks like we got a gee-nee-yuss in our midst

OMG, looks like we got a gee-nee-yuss in our midst
Paul Sullivan, on Bryan LaHair: “I think everyone in the clubhouse knows this isn’t the easiest place to hit home runs this time of the season,” LaHair said. “We all accept that. For me, I’m just trying to hit low line drives, ground balls through the hole, going to the gap… You try to hit... Read more »

Cubs trade Byrd, let's not stop there
Dave Van Dyck, Chicago Tribune baseball bigfoot: Even though they tried to lower expectations heading into the season, it became clear the Cubs‘ new front office had no desire to tolerate their team losing six straight games and starting the season with a .214 winning percentage. This is wonderful news, to me.  First, let metake... Read more »
