Ivy's Roundup: Time to Hibernate

Ivy's Roundup: Time to Hibernate
This is it.  No more Cubs baseball.  What are we going to do with ourselves?  *whine whine whine* Well, for starters, we can tune in to the MLB postseason, which should be plenty exciting.  The Cubs will be retooling soon, but let’s worry about that later on.  Right now we’re lamenting the lack of regular...

Don't Get Eliminated!

Don't Get Eliminated!
The Oakland Athletics finally (it seems like it, no?) won a game and we got to see a fun post-game scene: They missed with the pie. They did not miss with the shower. http://t.co/BMrCKchSww — MLB GIFS (@MLBGIFs) September 22, 2014   That would be former Cubs farmhand Josh Donaldson, who you may remember as... Read more »

Ivy's Roundup: Playing Spoiler

Ivy's Roundup: Playing Spoiler
We’re awaiting Jorge Soler‘s debut at Wrigley Field, along with the call-up of a less-heralded but still very intriguing pitcher in Eric Jokisch.  And no, don’t expect Kris Bryant to be called up.  In the meantime, we’re also awaiting approval of our Theo love mug (TM) so stay tuned for that. Oh yeah, this is... Read more »

Ivy's Roundup: Make my Split a Double

Ivy's Roundup: Make my Split a Double
It’s been a relatively busy week for Team WSD and the Cubs have continued to play games as 2014 winds down with contention a fading hope (or let’s be honest, we knew it wasn’t gonna happen in late-May at the latest).  There have been some bright spots, some All-Star performances, and some great glimpses into...

The Ivy Files: Baez Time at Wrigley

Grit and the Unwritten Rules

Grit and the Unwritten Rules
This is a rare non-Cubs blog for us, but I was eating my Oreos with milk and scrolling through Twitter while following baseball games when this happened in the Milwaukee Brewers-Arizona Diamondbacks game with Ryan Braun at the plate… Marshall is ejected after hitting Ryan Braun with a pitch. He leaves to a standing ovation.... Read more »

Ivy's Roundup: The War of Run Differential

Ivy's Roundup: The War of Run Differential
The Cubs have been flirting with a .500 Pythagorean expected record based on their season run differential, and this weekend the run differential really went nuts as Chicago and Milwaukee traded blowouts.  So let’s take a look at the silliness… Cubs vs. Brewers at Miller Park Friday, May 30 – Cubs 5, Brewers 11 I...

Saturday Highlights: Where Anthony Rizzo Murders Baseballs

Saturday Highlights: Where Anthony Rizzo Murders Baseballs
The Cubs just defeated the Milwaukee Brewers 8-0.  The offensive barrage brought their run differential to -9, which befits that of a .500-ish team, but of course the Cubs are still sniffing the entire MLB cellar and are in the driver’s seat for the top pick next year.  But that’s neither here nor there. No,... Read more »
