Dreamcast 51: The Big Unit

Dreamcast 51: The Big Unit
I think as I mature, I realize that it isn’t healthy to keep arguing with strangers online after a certain point. So if you are interested in reading about the current “impasse” between MLB and MLBPA, please check this article out and draw your own conclusions. Because we would prefer to talk about happier things,... Read more »

This is Boring

This is Boring
With a rapidly moving job hunt underway, I haven’t had much time to do anything, but then again, there hasn’t been that much to report in terms of baseball. Other than an announcement of the Minor League Baseball schedules and some workout videos, MLB has been at a standstill ever since the owners locked out... Read more »

Dreamcast 50: Absence Makes the Heart Grow Fonder
It is kind of hard to keep up a daily (or even monthly) blog, but one way to motivate myself to try is a convenient excuse to talk to one of my oldest friends, whom I have not spoken to in quite some time due to the various things that have otherwise occupied our lives.... Read more »

It's Over...What Now?

It's Over...What Now?
On this, the final day of the 2021 Chicago Cubs season, every MLB team played at the same time, but because I hadn’t tuned into an actual Cubs game in weeks other than watching the odd highlight and condensed game after the fact, I decided to watch this one all the way through.

The Final Week

The Final Week
You may have noticed that we haven’t blogged much since the Cubs were basically torn down and most of our favorites from the most memorable team in the past century were traded. Knowing what we know now, yeah, maybe it wouldn’t have mattered much since our favorites certainly had their flaws, but it was still... Read more »

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 »

Guest Post: Nick Shepkowski on His Favorite Anthony Rizzo Moment
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. Anthony... Read more »

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 »
