#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 »

Oscar Taveras and the Infinite Sadness

Oscar Taveras and the Infinite Sadness
I’ll admit that I was going to make my triumphant return the other night. I had what the world really needed which was yet another blistering hot take about Joe Maddon, but thankfully I left it unfinished before going to bed. Sadly I was busy during game 5 of the World Series, and so I... 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.

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.

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 »

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 »
