Game 16 – A Little Sloppy, But A Win

Fri, 20 Apr 2018 11:39:50 +0000

Sometimes you have to just be thankful for a win. Heck, sometimes you have to just be thankful for a freaking baseball game as it seems like all we do is get weathered out. Yesterday’s game could have gone a little better in the later innings, but a win is a win and this one was easy on the blood pressure to watch. That’s what I’m looking for. Javier Baez is on fire lately. He’s got 14 hits so far this season and 11 of them have been for extra bases, including five home runs. He plays the game hard […]

April has been ugly. Until it's not. But then it's a mirage. Let's take a look at some of the cogs in this game and how it all fits in the big picture for a team that can't decide which side of .500 to be on.

Captain’s Log – Day 2 – Still no Baseball, Try Again Tomorrow

Tue, 17 Apr 2018 10:25:14 +0000

The Cubs haven't played since Saturday, and I'm getting bored. Read my take away from Saturday's comeback (I was there, did I stay?), this rad weather, and a preview of our first (shortened) encounter with the St. Louis Cardinals. I may or may not also enlighten you on a minor investment opportunity.

Leadership Matters

Mon, 16 Apr 2018 02:14:04 +0000

Does the leadership of manager Joe Maddon fit what the Cubs have on the field right now? I'll take a look at how this season looks very much like that of the 2017 baseball season.

Game 11 – Offensive Explosion

Thu, 12 Apr 2018 10:47:48 +0000

Rizzo, Zobrist, and Baez are in the news today. Plus those pesky Pirates will not go away this year.

Opening Day Sights and Annoyances

Wed, 11 Apr 2018 12:15:40 +0000

An Opening Day late and a dollar short, but at least we filled the stadium and didn't freeze to death. The Cubs drop an annoying game to an annoying New Look Pirates.

Take Care of Business

Sun, 08 Apr 2018 19:45:20 +0000

The offense wakes up just in time to win a late inning wild one in Milwaukee after a great showing from Yu Darvish. Brandon Morrow slammed the door shut for his first save as a Cub.

Everything Can’t Be All Gloom and Doom During A Loss

Sat, 07 Apr 2018 13:03:33 +0000

The Cubs were beat Friday night by the Brewers but did have a few positives in the game. Making pitchers work and showing aggressiveness on the base paths were a couple of great signs for this long season. Now to keep it up more than just this one game.
