Have you been to the Cubs' Wrigley Field webpage? It's pretty cool

Have you been to the Cubs' Wrigley Field webpage? It's pretty cool
There’s no Cubs baseball (or any baseball for that matter, ugh) until Friday, so that gives us some breathing room to explore what else is going on in the Cubs build for the future.  Conveniently, the Cubs did set up a specific webpage (www.wrigleyfield.com) for their Wrigley Field updates, and you should check it out,...

Commission on Chicago Landmarks approves revised Wrigley Field expansion plans
The Cubs were at City Hall pitching their plan today after their neighborhood meeting on Monday.  While the Mayor has weighed in on the possible negotiations still to be done between the Cubs and the rooftops re: the number of signs in the outfield (and you might as well read Brett’s article over at Bleacher...

Wrigley expansion plans possibly hitting a speedbump already

Wrigley expansion plans possibly hitting a speedbump already
Within the past week we have learned that Cubs chairman Tom Ricketts is going full-steam ahead with the Wrigley Field renovation/expansion, pending the approval from the city on June 5.  We think this is a good thing, obviously, because the players need better facilities.  The pictures look pretty.  And the cool idea with the new...

#Whiff to support Chicago RBI
I don’t even remember when I joined Twitter, but at least since last year, Major League Baseball teams have been participating in this #Whiff contest.  I had little idea at the time what the point was…in fact it was a bit annoying, especially when the Cincinnati Reds Twitter account kept hashtagging #Whiff even when nobody...

Some of you may know this but for those that don’t Washington DC has become a second home to me. I was there for the Nationals inaugural season in 2005 and I grew fond of those teams in a way. I saw a lot of Livan Hernandez starts at RFK and I was fortunate enough... Read more »

Addison and Shields - Scorched earth

Addison and Shields - Scorched earth
I’m sure the Germans have a word for whatever the hell the Cubs and White Sox did over the past week but after Chicago’s 1-13 showing I haven’t the energy to look it up. I suppose that’s to be expected when both teams have anemic offenses. Chicago scored 34 runs in 14 games which works... Read more »

Addison and Shields - A weekly round up of Chicago Baseball

Addison and Shields - A weekly round up of Chicago Baseball
Follow me on Twitter @MRubio52 It was probably around the time that an anemic Chicago White Sox offense was getting absolutely owned by Wade Davis that I decided to pull the trigger on chronicling the paths of these two Chicago baseball teams.

Wrigley Field Restoration is Almost a Go (UPDATES)
Down the stretch we come! Wrigley Field has needed a facelift for what seems like decades now, and finally, it appears that it will happen and construction can begin.
