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 »

Rooting Interests
Bunt jokes!  Ned Yost!  Small market teams!  The American League Wild Card play-in game had it all!

Another MLB Postseason Without the Cubs
Here we are, on a Cubs off day (and a pretty infamous date as well, but let’s not get into that), and the North Siders are sitting at 64-82.  At this point they can no longer finish at .500, and they may be hard pressed to win 9 of the last 16 games to avoid... Read more »

Late Season MLB Audit

Late Season MLB Audit
*Note: This isn’t really scientific or anything, I’m not going to do R-squared calculations or correlations or whatever.  Just simple observations and free-flowing thoughts. There are only 13 Cubs games left in the season and we’ve talked a bit about the meager progress that has been made at the MLB level as well as the... Read more »
