Cubs Seek PC

No; the Cubs are not looking for a personal computer but, then again, maybe they are looking for a pc. That isn’t what I had in mind.  They are looking for a new Pitching Coach as Chris Bosio has been relieved of his duties by, the Chicago Cubs. The pitching staff was less than brilliant …

Bet You Didn’t Expect To Hear From Me

Well……here I am!  Yes, the Dodgers are going to the World Series which means the Cubs are not going to repeat.  At least not this year. You, and I knew from the beginning this would be a big climb for the Cubs who did not shine like they did last year.  In fact, it was …

Cubs Only 3 Down, Not Out…Again

The Dodgers have a 3 game lead in the NLCS but, it’s time once again for deja-vu, again!  (Thanks to Yogi Berra for the insight.) It was 2016, and it looked as though Cubs fans would have to wait 109 years for a World Series Championship.  Cleveland had a commanding 3 game lead.  Cubs Nay-sayers …

Cubs Throw D.C. A Curve

The 5th game deciding the Division play-offs.  Cubs, and Nationals. The Cubs lost no time scoring the first run but, the game was far from over. Early on it was looking good for the Nats in the 2nd as they took a 4-1 lead.  Strasburg was not going to be used against the Cubs but, …

WWMDA?????  Missing During Action???? Admittedly I seem to have abandoned this blog right in the middle of the season or, shortly thereafter. Really; My absence from this blog, and not the other blog has an explanation but, it is coupled with my laziness so, I won’t explain any further.   The abandonment could be explained but, …

Cubs Need Nat Relief

The Cubs have lost their last 3.  2 to D-backs, and 1 to Washington. The good news: Even with that losing streak, the Cubs lead their division by a half game. The Cubs have 2 afternoon contests beginning today at Wrigley Field with the Nationals, and will close out the home stand on Sunday.  The …

Cubs Increase Octane To Finish

….and while we’re at it, why not two tigers in the tank?   As this very successful 1960’s advertising campaign suggested, the Cubs had follow through with a dip in to their highly talented youth movement to obtain some pitching, and catching from Detroit before the trade deadline.   From the top prospect list, Detroit will …

Winner 2017 Crosstown Cup

The Cubs get another Crosstown Cup to their credit, winning 3 of 4 from the White Sox this past week. On to Miller Park, and a 2-1 loss to begin the 1st of 3 with the Brewers. Talk about living life in the past, I almost referred to the Brewers as the Braves. Keyboarding the …
