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

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

The 2015 Cubs Convention in Pictures

Mr. Alcantara, I presume?
Hi guys!  So you’re probably wondering where we’ve been, and like Rice said a while back, we’ve decided to hang out mostly at our mother ship.  But since he’s technologically challenged and can’t get our gallery widget to work, we’re sharing pictures here.  You can also read Anno’s blogs about the bleacher construction delay and...

The Life of Starlin

The Life of Starlin
There is a reason that I didn’t jump on this story right away, and that has to do with passing judgment.  If you were out and about today and didn’t check your Twitter, Starlin Castro apparently was involved in yet another questioning session in association with yet another shooting incident in his native Dominican Republic....

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,...

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...

The former Cincinnati Red,... Read more »

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...
