Rice Cube's Road Trip: AT&T Park

Rice Cube's Road Trip: AT&T Park
This is the last week we will spend in California as I have to go back home to Chicago to start up work again.  On Wednesday, we decided to head up to the Bay Area one last time to visit my side of the family, and on our way we elected to go through San... Read more »

Jon Lester will learn to crochet before he decides on a team
In between teaching (finals are coming up) and the lack of news (other than the Chicago Cubs basically giving the rooftops the finger again), and Dabs actually blogging for the first time in OMG I LOST COUNT, we’re still no closer to seeing who will win the epic poker game between the Cubs and the...

Cubs Will Look to Fortify the Roster to Compete in 2015
As the season winds down, with the World Series getting set to begin, the most anticipated off-season of the Epstein/ Hoyer era is just around the corner.  Next season will be the first that the Cubs make a conscious and concerted effort to win, with the expressed goal being to win the NL Central.  While...

Alright alright alright…let’s get this out of the way first:   WOW #SFGIANTS OMG WOW — WorldSeriesDreaming (@WSDreaming_Cubs) October 17, 2014 Because this happened: Travis Ishikawa, perpetual journeyman, walking off against former NLCS MVP Michael Wacha. Of course, Wacha hadn’t pitched in forever because St. Louis Cardinals manager Mike Matheny had been saving him for... Read more »

The best day in MLB postseason action and I missed most of it

The best day in MLB postseason action and I missed most of it
I just saw this play:   Great tag. #ALDS pic.twitter.com/os9xYVy1Mr — MLB Fan Cave (@MLBFanCave) October 4, 2014   I mean, what an incredible play to erase the leadoff double on a pretty bad baserunning error by the pinch-runner, Collin Cowgill. It was a damn fine throw from the new center fielder, Jarrod Dyson, who... Read more »

They might be Giants

They might be Giants
This was not as suspenseful of a game as the last Wild Card game between the A’s and Royals, but for me, a Bay Area native, it was just as fun.  The Giants won behind the incredible pitching performance of one Madison Bumgarner and will advance to face the Washington Nationals in the National League...

Bunt jokes!  Ned Yost!  Small market teams!  The American League Wild Card play-in game had it all! First, there was Yost:   Ned Yost shows why he’s a terrible manager http://t.co/9r6TDxJtSb — ESPN.com’s SweetSpot (@espn_sweet_spot) October 1, 2014   You may recall that Yost helmed the Milwaukee Brewers in 2008 when they were battling one...

Goodbye Regular Season, Hello October

Goodbye Regular Season, Hello October
Let’s populate this post with tons of awesome highlights, because even though we didn’t see absolute chaos erupt, there was still a lot of great baseball being played. In the Cubs game, their last of 2014, Anthony Rizzo did this, and thus the Cubs avoided loss #90 and achieved more progress than most of us probably... Read more »

MLB Extreme Elimination Challenge

MLB Extreme Elimination Challenge
Tonight was the last time Derek Jeter would ever play at Yankee Stadium in Yankee pinstripes as an active player on the Yankees so of course there was a lot of fanfare and what not.  The game was, fittingly, the free game of the day on MLB.tv, so I got to watch most of it.... Read more »
