Starlin Castro's blossoming stardom - What to watch for in the last 46 games?

Starlin Castro's blossoming stardom - What to watch for in the last 46 games?
The final 46 games of the Chicago Cubs season have little meaning.  Interchangeable parts and departing free agents litter the Cubs roster.  However, baseball fans need to be paying a little more attention.  Starlin Castro is beginning to show a power stroke with his fluid swing, and has Cubs fans salivating at what he could...

Well, at least the Cubs will always have June 13-17

Well, at least the Cubs will always have June 13-17
Remember when a cotton t-shirt which read “F*ck the Goat” had turned the Cubs season around? It was supposed to be a unifying piece of apparel, like a NASCAR cut off sleeve shirt in Southern Indiana. It was supposed to galvanize a team of listless and seemingly unmotivated millionaires. And…for a bit-it seemed to inexpicably... Read more »

The Chicago Cubs are Ketchup, and other Reasons I'm a White Sox Fan

The Chicago Cubs are Ketchup, and other Reasons I'm a White Sox Fan
In anticipation of this weekend’s second leg of the biannual “Crosstown  BP South Side vs. North Side Bad vs. Worse…Cup…Classic”, I thought hey, why not  identify my reasons for being a Sox fan, by lazily resorting to illogical metaphors, loose associations, and shameless stereotypes?  Yep, no way this has been done before.  I’m a Sox...

Chicago Cubs "It Gets Better" Video

As discussed here prior, the Chicago Cubs promptly and laudably heeded the call of an online petition, which saught their involvement in the “It Gets Better” campaign. This is the finished product: Be Good Friends, @koolking83 (P.S. As a Sox fan, I hope it doesn’t “get better” for the Cubs the next three days-then again, it’s... Read more »

Kenny Williams Should Not Be Immune To Scrutiny

Kenny Williams Should Not Be Immune To Scrutiny
It is time to start criticizing both General Manager’s in town.  Before you bite my head off, White Sox fans, hear me out.  The grace period for a World Series should be over.  It has been 6 years since the Chicago White Sox have won the World Series.  Let’s look past that for now. I... Read more »

Philosophical Changes Needed for Chicago Cubs to Succeed

Philosophical Changes Needed for Chicago Cubs to Succeed
I recently wrote that this 2011 Cubs team may finish as the worst team in the MLB, and the future does not look much brighter.  In a June 7 column, Gordon Wittenmyer of the Chicago Sun-Times wrote about the financial troubles that the Chicago Cubs face moving forward. While it may be true that the... Read more »

Just How Bad Could The Cubs End Up Being?

The Chicago Cubs Join a Worthy Cause

The Chicago Cubs Join a Worthy Cause
While the Cubs play on the field this season has given fans little to cheer about , the team has made an off the field move which is certainly worthy of our collective praise. It was announced Friday that the Cubs will be producing an “It Gets Better Video”, which will speak out against anti-gay... Read more »

A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words...or 102 Years
Compliments of Paul Sullivan at the Chicago Tribune. According to PS , this fittingly injured logo is located in the tunnel which connects the Cubs dugout to the clubhouse. Nothing else needs to be said. ( Paul Sullivan/Chicago Tribune / June 1, 2011 ) Be Good Friends, @koolking83

It's Time to Send Tyler Colvin Down to AAA

It's Time to Send Tyler Colvin Down to AAA
Tyler Colvin is in an unfortunate position with the Chicago Cubs.  He currently sits as 4th outfielder behind two high paid corner outfielders, Alfonso Soriano and Kosuke Fukudome.  With both Soriano and Fukudome playing well this season (Soriano has a league leading 11 homeruns and Fukudome hitting .360) Tyler Colvin has been seeing less playing...
