#LetsGo #Cubs: A Fun Day at "New" Wrigley Field

#LetsGo #Cubs: A Fun Day at "New" Wrigley Field
Thanks to Ed Nickow, aka “Cubs in Haiku” (you can check out his blog on ChicagoNow here, and also follow him on Twitter), my son and I went to Wrigley Field this year much earlier than expected.  Usually I don’t get to go to games until the end of April at the earliest, and mostly... Read more »

We sure could use some news, eh?

We sure could use some news, eh?
Today actually didn’t suck, and in many ways I think the school I work for does things so much better than other schools in Chicago.  Obviously things could be better (I’d prefer not to have to keep students from trying to kill each other) but compared to some other stories I’ve hard in CPS schools,...

Cubs Snippets

Cubs Snippets
I was pondering the possibility of grabbing Andrew Miller off the free agent market this offseason, but he’s going to be expensive-ish and the Cubs could probably do well via claims, low-risk minor league signings etc.  Lo and behold, today, the Cubs claimed a lefty reliever, Joe Ortiz, off waivers from Texas.  Cubs Den has...

While My Agent Gently Weeps...

While My Agent Gently Weeps...
As recently as maybe in the last minute (okay, so it was probably just a few days ago), super-agent Scott Boras was stumping for his client (that’s his job, so that’s reasonable) to get called up to the majors in September.  Of course, you probably know the client, Kris Bryant, by his $6.7MM smile and...

Rundown on Anthony Rizzo and Starlin Castro Injuries (UPDATES)
In the last week, both of the Cubs’ top players have undergone injuries.  Anthony Rizzo has missed a week with back discomfort and tonight Starlin Castro injured his ankle when sliding into home plate in the first inning when his spikes got caught in the dirt.  For both, there is some cause for immediate concern....

Waiting For Bryant

Waiting For Bryant
The Cubs killed a few baseballs Friday night in St. Louis, marking one of the most entertaining games in recent Cub fan memories since…well, probably sometime last week actually.  It has been an incredibly splendid time to be a Cubs fan despite their non-contender status and their still-in-progress building process.  The time will come, and...
