Rambling About the Cubs While Waving My Broom

Hello again, everybody! It is nice to be back, and it is even nicer to be writing about the Cubs sweeping a four-game series. And this was not a normal four-gamer; this was against the Mighty Mets who rode into town with an impressive 20-11 record. Well, thanks to the Cubbies you can add four […]

Rambling About the Cubs While the Prospects Have Arrived

Hello, again everybody. The Cubbies are 8-7, and I must admit, it is a rather disappointing 8-7 at that, but I will say that this team is better than I expected. A team cannot win the pennant in April, but it can definitely lose one. The past few years it seemed like late May arrived […]

Rambling About the Cubs from First Place

Hello again, everybody. It is nice to be with you and writing about actual baseball games that matter. While it’s only been eight games, it been a fun eight games for the most part, and the Cubs are over .500 for the first time since Tinkers-to-Evers-to-Chance.

Rambling about the Cubs on the Eve of the Eve

Hello again, everybody. Real games are so close I can almost taste them. Well, to be fair, I just had some hot dogs, so I like, literally just tasted baseball. And yes, I am very well aware that is an erroneous use of “literally.” The North Side is abuzz with the excitement of baseball, video […]

Rambling about the Cubs as Boras is Boorish and Bright

Hello again, everybody. With the weather warming and the words whizzing and whirring, Spring Training is getting more and more interesting by the day.

Rambling about the Cubs as Hope Hits a Fever Pitch

Hello again, everybody and happy Friday to you all. We are inching closer and closer to pitchers and catchers, to full-squad workouts, and to every daily newspaper running an article about the local baseball team entitled “Hope Springs Eternal.” That article is then followed later in the week by “Such and Such team looks to […]

Saying Goodbye to Ernie

The Chicago Cubs leader has left and gone away, but yet, we remain. Ernie Banks died yesterday at the age of 83.  He is the greatest Chicago Cubs player that has ever lived, and there is a very good chance he will go down as the greatest Chicago Cub ever. Mr. Banks was the first […]

Rambling about the Cubs while Cubbie Kool-Aid is Flying Off the Shelves

Hello again, everybody.  I hope you are feeling quite fit and fine on the phenomenal Friday. I attended my 10th Cubs Convention last weekend, and I must say, I have never seen anything like it. The hotel was packed, it was mass chaos in many ways, and the vibe was one that has not been seen […]
