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...

I'm kinda proud of you all, Cubs fans

Well, they finally did it.  House has been cleaned.  There are still some Mathers and Sorianos lying about, and I still can’t imagine what the hell a “stress reaction” is in Garza’s elbow – probably is a new word for “pain”.  I believe the extra effort they had to put in on the Dempster deal...

Meet your new 2012 Cubs "long man" - Mr. Ryan Dempster

Meet your new 2012 Cubs "long man" - Mr. Ryan Dempster
Well, we were all fooled!  Normally I pride myself on being able to see through the hype (see Sosa, Sammy) and see what a pile of crap most players are.  Dempster was good, really good, at selling us on his warm-and-fuzzy facade.  He runs up mountains!  He is a super dad!  He does horrifically bad...

Ryan Dempster Eats Ass

This one’s for the Cubs Coven – BK and all his alter egos, Hawk, Forklift, Stew and Kurt, the young, idealistic rose colored glasses wearing Cub fan who we managed to educate, and turn to the dark side… See, harken back to the exciting days July 2001, when the Tampa Bay Rays were actually Devil Rays...

Ron Santo was part of something truly special

Ron Santo was part of something truly special
I saw Ron Santo play. Granted, I was too young and ignorant about the ways of baseball to be truly subjective.  Some may argue that is still the case.  Some can bite me. I was five in 1969, which means I was all of nine when he was traded to the Sox.  It would be... Read more »

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 »

Happy Anthony Rizzo Day!

Happy Anthony Rizzo Day!
It’s a special occasion, like a birthday.  Or Christmas.  Or the Easter Bunny day.  Or a toof-fell-out day. (Does not apply below Interstate 80, or in other areas where Mountain Dew is sold.  Or Cheerwine.  That stuff is simply dental suicide). Lou Gehrig Anthony Rizzo, the Future of the Chicago Cubs, is here at long last. ... Read more »

Which one of the 2012 Cubs should you attach yourself to?

Which one of the 2012 Cubs should you attach yourself to?
Hello again! It’s been a month.  Chances are, nobody ever checks this site anymore, so unless you are one of my FB friends or this is really really good and the webmaster decides to feature this, you’ll never see it.  Too bad.  However, that’s never stopped me before.  So let’s have at it. The story of... 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 »

We shouldn't really leave Wrigley Field feeling miserable

We shouldn't really leave Wrigley Field feeling miserable
From Paul Sullivan in the Trib: He said he felt like he was putting manager Dale Sveum in unfair situations with his inability to pitch on consecutive days because of a balky right shoulder. On the Friday single season tickets went on sale, it was a crazy ass day at work, and I had forgotten... Read more »
