What If...?

What If...?
The Cubs have been on a winning streak of sorts for a while now, and if not for the Arizona Diamondbacks absolutely sucking, they would be in first place by themselves. Alas, can’t count on anyone but themselves, and that does get tough when their numbers keep dropping. Observe today’s lineup: A sweep would be... Read more »

If I Were The King...

If I Were The King...
Our original blog site at World Series Dreaming dot com has been scrubbed from the internet, so now all you get is us over here. That’s okay, I just spent a few moments watching Game Seven again…at least (until the Chicago Now servers tumble into Lake Michigan or something) we will always have this. As... Read more »

The One Before I Die

The One Before I Die
With our old blog about to expire, it’s nice to know that ChicagoNow kept ours up in the interim. It is a sad time, because we had so much in the archives over there, but it’s been on life support for a while now since we haven’t been able to do much with life and... Read more »

Get Ready For October Baseball

Get Ready For October Baseball
The theme of the night is the future, and it seems that has been the theme since Theo Epstein and Jed Hoyer took over baseball operations on the North side of Chicago. I can say without any hesitation that the Chicago Cubs WILL be playing October baseball.  That, of course, is a given, since the... Read more »

The 2015 Cubs Convention in Pictures

Mr. Alcantara, I presume?
Hi guys!  So you’re probably wondering where we’ve been, and like Rice said a while back, we’ve decided to hang out mostly at our mother ship.  But since he’s technologically challenged and can’t get our gallery widget to work, we’re sharing pictures here.  You can also read Anno’s blogs about the bleacher construction delay and...

The Life of Starlin

The Life of Starlin
There is a reason that I didn’t jump on this story right away, and that has to do with passing judgment.  If you were out and about today and didn’t check your Twitter, Starlin Castro apparently was involved in yet another questioning session in association with yet another shooting incident in his native Dominican Republic....

The Waiver Wire (UPDATE: David Ross signing official, roster full)

The Waiver Wire (UPDATE: David Ross signing official, roster full)
Remember yesterday when we were talking about the 40-man roster? Well, the Cubs lost Shane Peterson, Ryan Lavarnway, and grabbed Mike Kickham (not Mark): If Peterson, Lavarnway are any indication, we shouldn’t get too attached to Mark Kickham #Cubs — Andy (@Behind_The_Ivy) December 23, 2014   Yeah, that didn’t take long at all. It seemed... Read more »

Waiting for the pieces to fall in...

Waiting for the pieces to fall in...
In between (finally!) cleaning up the science lab at school, trying to find a mortgage company that would give us a favorable deal (wow, responsibility!) and waiting for Santa to arrive, I was also keeping an eye on the twitters to see what else would happen.  It seems that the Padres have decided to step...

Catching Fire

Catching Fire
I’m a bit drunk right now after the school party (the students were gone, just us insane teachers so nobody panic) but I did catch up on the Twitters and I know the Chicago Cubs appear to have a reasonable-ish deal with David Ross: Sources: David Ross to #Cubs, two years, $5M. — Ken Rosenthal...
