What it has come to: no (firetrucks) given about Cubs anymore (um, UPDATE)

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...

Help Wanted - Pitchers for 2013 Cubs (UPDATED for sweet Nostradamic action)
UPDATE – Scott Baker is in the fold.  Expect Brandon McCarthy and Kevin Correia any day now. This is in response to the series of articles the Tribune is making their two lead baseball beat writers provide for the Sox (DOOOONNNNTTTT CAAAAAARRRRREEEE) and the Cubs.  Each day, the writer is forced to present a positional recap...

Building for tomorrow, today

Building for tomorrow, today
And other platitudes that don’t actually mean anything. Last night I was relaxing with the wife, watching an old rerun of Parenthood, when my brother Facebooked me a question: are you watching the game? It’s actually good. I had to think for a second about what he could’ve been writing about, and then I remembered… meaningful... Read more »

The Reason why there was so much Jackson and Vitters in 2012

The Reason why there was so much Jackson and Vitters in 2012
Thanks to Bruce Miles, raw unsweetened Essence of Theo provides justification Behold one of the finest blog entries I have ever read from the Daily Herald’s Bruce Miles.  Simplicity in its finest – more or less a straight transcript, or at least, closer to a transcript of Theo Epstein’s 2012 Cubs post-mortem than the local newspapers felt like...

Who's Coming North with the Cubs in 2013?

Who's Coming North with the Cubs in 2013?
It’s depressing that there are legal adults who ain’t gotta clue about phone booths and their original purpose.  If you see one, now, chances are it has been converted into a time machine.  There’s one sitting next to a closed gas-station in the next town over, and I stepped in.  Well, ok, I squoze my...

Is there a place in the New Cubs organization for Old Cubs

Is there a place in the New Cubs organization for Old Cubs
Yesterday, four months after his abrupt yet necessary retirement from the game, Kerry Wood was honored by the Cubs with a pre-game ceremony, including a first pitch by his son Justin (who is as “effectively wild” as his old man) and, finally, an essentially solo performance of “Ballgame” by Justin during the 7th inning stretch. ...

Don't miss the point on the 2012 Cubs

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...

Third base for the Cubs - ugh!

Third base for the Cubs - ugh!
Hey!!  Lookee what I found? It’s the gaping black hole next to third base at Wrigley Field! Legend has it that Ron Santo himself cursed the Cubs when he was traded to the Hated White Sux, and used the dark powers that held him together throughout all his years with Diabetes to create the deep,...
