Sky is Falling--Brewers 6 Cubs 5 (10 innings)

Sky is Falling--Brewers 6 Cubs 5 (10 innings)
Okay, I hope no one actually thinks that after the Cubs suffered back to back defeats for the first time in 2020. It was a frustrating loss two games in a row against a division foe. The Cubs blew a chance to truly bury the Brewers in the short season. The four game swing has... Read more »

Is This Real?--Cubs 7 Cleveland 2

Is This Real?--Cubs 7 Cleveland 2
Is there a spoon? I mean I could write about how the Cubs got yet another quality start from their starting pitcher. Kyle Hendricks matched Jon Lester tonight. Or I could write about how once again the Cubs lineup battered an opposing starting pitcher. Tonight it wasn’t some dude pressed into starting, but a very... Read more »

Sanitizing 2019--Cubs 3 Brewers 0

Sanitizing 2019--Cubs 3 Brewers 0
Recaps are going to be slightly different in 2020, and the short version is that this is most likely what you will get immediately after a game in 2020. A full explanation of what is happening and why will be posted below.* The Cubs had to wait an awfully long time for it, but the Northside ball... Read more »

Closing Windows--Cardinals 5 Cubs 4

Closing Windows--Cardinals 5 Cubs 4
This isn’t how it was supposed to go. The Cubs have been so very good at home. The Cardinals hadn’t won at Wrigley in nearly a calendar year. Kyle Hendricks has been especially dominant at the Friendly Confines. And Anthony Rizzo somehow managed to hobble his way into the leadoff spot. Unfortunately Jack Flaherty, the... Read more »

Cubs vs Reds Series Preview: (9/16-9/18)

Cubs vs Reds Series Preview: (9/16-9/18)
The Cubs crushed the Pirates in a three-game sweep, scoring a franchise-record 47 runs in the romp. Everything would be perfect if not for Anthony Rizzo‘s scary ankle injury. It’s unclear how long it will take for the big first baseman to get back in the lineup. Chicago continue their playoff push with a three-game... Read more »

Cold Brew - Brewers 2, Cubs 0

Cold Brew - Brewers 2, Cubs 0
Saturday was just one of those games for the Cubs. Tons of hard contact against the Brewers, but pretty much every ball found a glove. The result was a shutout loss for the home team. Milwaukee would get all the runs they needed against Cole Hamels in the top of the 1st inning. Ben Gamel... Read more »
