Jinx--Tigers 7 Cubs 1

Jinx--Tigers 7 Cubs 1
So tonight clearly has one person to blame. The Detroit Tigers with the worst starting staff ERA in history currently pitched a near quality start against the Cubs lineup. The Tigers lineup produced more than one run in the first inning for just the second time in 2020. And a grand slam in the sixth... Read more »

Heating Back Up (Hopefully)--Cubs 9 Tigers 3

Heating Back Up (Hopefully)--Cubs 9 Tigers 3
The Tigers are not a good team, but the Cubs needed this win to get back on track. The Cubs managed to hang on yesterday to avoid the sweep, but today saw the Cubs looking like the team that rolled out to their best start since 1907. These games frequently can be traced back to... Read more »

F Yu White Sox--Cubs 2 White Sox 1

F Yu White Sox--Cubs 2 White Sox 1
Nothing was easy this past couple of weeks. The Cubs finally came out ahead in the home run happy series. Yu Darvish was magnificent figuring out how to keep the White Sox in the ballpark except for a mistake to Jose Abreu. Actually, retiring Jose Abreu two times felt like a magic trick in and of...

Bombardment! Bombardment!--White Sox 7 Cubs 4

Bombardment! Bombardment!--White Sox 7 Cubs 4
The White Sox won their two games in Wrigley Field this year so far, but the offensive explosion doesn’t count because they were too reliant on the home run ball. The White Sox scored all seven runs tonight on long balls after scoring all ten runs last night on bombs. Unfortunately that doesn’t really matter... Read more »

One to Forget--White Sox 10 Cubs 1

One to Forget--White Sox 10 Cubs 1
There are just some games that you have to forget, and tonight was one of those nights. The regression monster continued to bite Jon Lester as did the top of the Cubs lineup struggles at the plate. This one was over early as the White Sox young sluggers bashed the Cubs pitching staff to post... Read more »

Swing of Emotions--Cubs 5 Cardinals 4

Swing of Emotions--Cubs 5 Cardinals 4
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

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 »

Hurts-Brewers 6 Cub 5

Hurts-Brewers 6 Cub 5
Don’t it? The formula that had become ho-hum has strangely disappeared the last three contests. The Cubs starters are not turning in the quality starts and the offense has struggled despite the run totals. Today the bats managed the feat of scoring more runs than they had hits, but it wasn’t enough once again. What... Read more »

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 »

No No-No But Still Good--Cubs 4 Brewers 2

No No-No But Still Good--Cubs 4 Brewers 2
So last night I questioned the realness of this incredible start to the season. This is the best start the Cubs have had since 1907, for the record. There was some discussion in the comments about whether or not this season counts and how real this year being held together with baling wire and duct... Read more »
