Cubs Insider is a Cubs blog that embodies the Cubs experience, as painful as that is at times. It was started by veteran ChicagoNow blogger Tom Loxas.

Loxas wanted to recruit other talented bloggers with unique and different voices to give Cubs fans a well-rounded experience.

The site features contributions from Loxas, former Yahoo contributor Evan Altman, and many other thought-provoking up-and-comers. You won't find the usual aggregated, regurgitated, info here.

You will find original material here in the form of beat style reports, analysis, features, minor league recaps, top-notch interviews, pop culture, craft beer reviews, and strong opinions.
