Hello again, everybody. There was much ado about something this week at Wrigley as the Cubs hosted a team that is supposedly worse than them. The series got off to a good start, but things turned sour quickly and a big ole birthday cake ended up in the dumpster. So, on that random note, let’s […]

We are nine games into the season, and while 3-6 sounds bad, and well, is bad, there have been some bright spots and solid performances that have many Cubs fans slugging some light-blue kool aid right about now.

Sure, three games have been played, but the real Opening Day is the home opener.  And that, as every single person reading this site right now already knows, is today.  The bunting will adorn the brick, the players will be introduced, the rain will fall heavily, and the fans will convene in the restrooms.

Rambling about the Cubs on the Last Day of January

Hello again, everybody, and I must say that once more … hello again, everybody.  It has been quite some time. To be exact, it has been seven weeks since you have been inundated with my rambling, sometimes incoherent thoughts that may or may not remind you of a distant uncle. There has been so much […]

Rambling About the Cubs While Waiting For Something, Anything

Hello again, everybody. It has been awhile since I have filled your Friday with free factoids, phenomenal fun and fruitful fanaticism. Man, I love Phonics. Now that I have gotten the alliteration out of the way, it is time to talk about the Cubs, the Winter Meetings, the huge Ruggiano pickup, and … well … […]

Rambling about the Cubs While Having No Idea …

This headline comes as no surprise to the regular “Ramblings” readers, but it fits in with what I know about the Cubs right now, and most likely what everyone really knows … or doesn’t. The General Managers meetings took place this week in Orlando, the Cubs held their “Season-Ticket Holder” presentations last week, and the […]
