Hope springs eternal as a new leaf is turned over while waiting for the fresh new day as the dew on the grass is beginning to dry and we are waiting for those two beautiful and gorgeous words that are music to our ears … “PLAY BALL.” That is a lot of sap to process, […]
It’s Friday, cuts have been made, dreams have been shattered, veterans have been shocked and all signs point to the Shark. Opening Day is less than a week away, the roster has taken shape and it’s time to play some meaningful baseball games, for a few months, at least. So, let’s get to some rambling […]
Andy Sonnanstine ain’t in the big league sun no more, real baseball is about two weeks away, the Shark has finally earned his chance and Soriano is still fooling us all. With that said, let’s get to what Fridays on the CCO are all about. Ramble on …
We are exactly three weeks away from Opening Day, Brett Jackson should be the starting center fielder, there are still battles to be won and Alfonso Soriano is the early favorite for MVP. So, with that said, let’s get rambling before the Madness is in full swing!
And I will say, it is much better than rambling about talk and preparation for the actual games that don’t count. What a rush it is to turn on the radio and hear the best seven words in the world, “Chicago Cubs baseball is on the air.” Just drink it in; it always goes down […]
So, its Friday, Kerry Wood tried to take out our best offensive player, bunting is cool again, Jeff Samardzija loves the camera, the squad has moved on down the road to HoHoKam, and Maholm was leveled by the flu in the desert.

It’s Friday, we’re eight days from the greatness of Spring Training, the Cubs have three players in another guy’s top 100 prospects, we haven’t signed Cespedes and it looks like Soriano is wearing the blue pinstripes this season at 1060 W. Addison. So, with that said, and with many more things unfurl, let’s get rambling.
After a crazy a week, full of news and groundbreaking signings like those of Trever Miller and Matt Tolbert combined with another eye-opening list of prospects from BA that no one has ever thought of before, it is hard just to catch one’s breath. Can you sense the sarcasm? Good, because I am laying it […]
Hello again, everybody. It has been a few weeks, but it’s Friday, and I am back. So, let’s get together, and throw out some quick thoughts and observations about our favorite baseball team. There is a lot going on, and at any minute now the Chicago Cubans could really start taking shape. (And Kudos to […]
