Is There Anybody Out There--Cubs 10 Brewers 5

Is There Anybody Out There--Cubs 10 Brewers 5
The Cubs won a key game in September against an important division foe, but I can’t help but feel a twinge of ‘please like my sport’z with the NFL’s annual dominance of the American sports landscape beginning once again. The Cubs played the Brewers on the same night as the Bears and Packers for the... Read more »

Brewers vs. Cubs Series Preview (8/30-9/1)

Brewers vs. Cubs Series Preview (8/30-9/1)
The Cubs head back home after completing a perfect road trip. Sure it was just three games, but the Cubs road woe issues can finally be put to rest after beating three very talented pitchers away from the Friendly Confines. Two of those three starters had been throwing the ball very well heading into their... Read more »

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA *deep breath* HHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!--Brewers 5 Cubs 1

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA *deep breath* HHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!--Brewers 5 Cubs 1
The Cubs did the minimum in their important series against the Brewers. Unfortunately the offense’s deep freeze continued and the bullpen continues to be leaky as the Brewers leave town down a mere game. Curtis Granderson was inserted into the starting lineup in the leadoff spot, and it shows the difference between the hands Craig... Read more »

Cubs @ Brewers Series Preview (4/5-4/8): Dr. Livingston, I Presume?

Cubs @ Brewers Series Preview (4/5-4/8): Dr. Livingston, I Presume?
Pretty sparse week for the Cubs, as they got a rainout on Tuesday and a schedule off-day on Wednesday. So whatever worries there were about a tired pen, a mere five games into the season, will be erased. Or at least you'd hope. They'll keep the NL Central theme going, with an early look at what it is likely to be their closest competitor this season, the Milwaukee Brewers...

Q B Dealing--Cubs 5 Brewers 0

Q B Dealing--Cubs 5 Brewers 0
The drama of the series and the season was wrapped up with Jose Quintana‘s calm, complete game shutout. The series had featured three straight games decided in the tenth inning, but the Cubs magic number sits at 2 after the team took care of business at Wrigley North. A classic example of a game that... Read more »

Pain--Brewers 15 Cubs 2

Pain--Brewers 15 Cubs 2
This was not a fun game to watch. I would have turned it off well before the nine innings were complete if not for writing the recap. The Cubs offense was anemic against a pitcher on a pretty good run. Ben Zobrist had the first base hit with a two out single. Kyle Schwarber launched... Read more »

No Disguising It--Cubs 5 Brewers 4 (10)
The Cubs are the NL Central champions! I’ll see myself out now… They won in dramatic come from behind fashion. Oh and the guy behind it all wore a ridiculous fake mustache. And it’s Friday. Everything is coming up Millhouse! The Brewers might not be a good team, but they still have power up and... Read more »
