Cubs Torn Down to the Studs

Cubs Torn Down to the Studs
Yesterday was hard. No other way to describe what happened. Watching the greatest Chicago Cubs team in my life time being sold off piece by piece was painful. Even though I knew this was going to happen, I was still in a bit of shock. Yesterday a part of me died each time someone from... Read more »

Forever a Cub

Forever a Cub
Looking back, it is hard to believe how long it has been since I put pen to paper (or in this case words on a screen) and written something for the blog. Between getting married, the passing of my mother, the birth of my daughter and the pandemic, life these last three years has taken... Read more »

The Unnecessary Rebuild

The Unnecessary Rebuild
I…think I’m upset. I admit I’m a bit miffed at him (and certain other folks) for his decisions in the midst of a global health crisis, but like Nick Shepkowski wrote earlier, I have many fond memories of Anthony Rizzo on the Chicago Cubs. A good portion of that has to do with the part... Read more »

I assume by now you’ve seen this: The #Cubs today acquired minor league RHP Alexander Vizcaíno and minor league OF Kevin Alcántara from the Yankees for 1B Anthony Rizzo and a cash consideration. pic.twitter.com/R4FfgNDeTY— Chicago Cubs (@Cubs) July 30, 2021 I also assume that like most of us, you’re not taking this very well.

Actually Going To a Cubs Game During a Pandemic!

Actually Going To a Cubs Game During a Pandemic!
Hello again, everyone! As is customary with our family, when the world is not locked down because of some deadly virus, we go to at least one Cubs game every season. Back in 2019, after we had moved to California, we went to a Cubs game at Wrigley during a summer visit back to Chicago.... Read more »

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 »

#LetsGo #Cubs: A Fun Day at "New" Wrigley Field

#LetsGo #Cubs: A Fun Day at "New" Wrigley Field
Thanks to Ed Nickow, aka “Cubs in Haiku” (you can check out his blog on ChicagoNow here, and also follow him on Twitter), my son and I went to Wrigley Field this year much earlier than expected.  Usually I don’t get to go to games until the end of April at the earliest, and mostly... Read more »

We sure could use some news, eh?

We sure could use some news, eh?
Today actually didn’t suck, and in many ways I think the school I work for does things so much better than other schools in Chicago.  Obviously things could be better (I’d prefer not to have to keep students from trying to kill each other) but compared to some other stories I’ve hard in CPS schools,...

Cubs Will Look to Fortify the Roster to Compete in 2015

Cubs Will Look to Fortify the Roster to Compete in 2015
As the season winds down, with the World Series getting set to begin, the most anticipated off-season of the Epstein/ Hoyer era is just around the corner.  Next season will be the first that the Cubs make a conscious and concerted effort to win, with the expressed goal being to win the NL Central.  While...

Cubs Snippets

Cubs Snippets
I was pondering the possibility of grabbing Andrew Miller off the free agent market this offseason, but he’s going to be expensive-ish and the Cubs could probably do well via claims, low-risk minor league signings etc.  Lo and behold, today, the Cubs claimed a lefty reliever, Joe Ortiz, off waivers from Texas.  Cubs Den has...
