It was a pretty miserable day at the ballpark for 12 innings. The Cubs offense remained in the deep freeze with the club managing just 3 hits through those first 12 innings. The road Cubs at Wrigley looked like they were facing Carlos Marmol as the team played two true outcomes baseball. The Cubs either... Read more »

The New Normal--Cardinals 3 Cubs 1
Well the 2020 Cubs have been consistent. Their games have felt very similar in the first couple of weeks with the team rolling out to their best start since 1907. But like everything else in 2020, their new normal positively sucks. The Cubs have found the absolute quickest way to wash away the positive vibes... Read more »

The Long Goodbye--Cardinals 9 Cubs 0
Game 162 was finally upon us and with it the conclusion that had been foregone for at least a fortnight.

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.

Forgettable Night--Cardinals 8 Cubs 0

Forgettable Night--Cardinals 8 Cubs 0

Joe Maddon made several inexplicable moves once again, and it combined for the Cubs losing the division lead, once again. The search for a road... Read more »
