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 […]

Rambling While Waiting for the Cubs New Head Honcho

Hello again, everybody.  The playoffs are heating up, but I am more interested in the steam that should be rising from the hot stove very soon.  Sure, the pilot light has yet to be lit, but we are very close, and I can taste the yummy deliciousness said stove is going to produce. While the […]

Rambling as the Cubs Season is Almost Over

Hello again, everybody. We are here. It is the last weekend of the season. It has been another tough trudge through mud kind of campaign, and there is so much up in the air as we close the books on another year of baseball on the Northside. This offseason is bound to bring changes to […]

Rambling About the Cubs As the Dog Days Fade Away

Hello again, everybody, and a good Friday morning to each and every one of you.  September starts on Sunday, and mercifully, the 2013 Cubs campaign will come to an end in about five weeks.  It has ended up as another frustrating season for the Northsiders, but the light at the end of the tunnel is […]

Rambling About the Cubs as the Dog Days Are Upon Us

As the season trudges on, and thoughts of 2014 fill my head, it is hard to describe the current installment of the Chicago Cubs.  The names, faces, trades and waiver moves come together to make one random story of a season.  With less than two months to play, it is hard to imagine the Cubs […]

Tom Tunney would have you believe.  The big bad corporate guys are going to ruin his sleepy little neighborhood nestled in the plains of Chicago’s quiet Northside. Is Ald. Tunney kidding himself?  Where was […]

Rambling as Summer Officially Begins

Hello again, everybody.  While it may be true that summer officially begins today, the Cubs’ performance of late makes me yearn for the break of Fall. I know it’s been awhile since I’ve bored you with my stream of consciousness, but it’s Friday, and it’s about time I start throwing random thoughts out there and […]

Rambling About an Offensive Cubs Offense

Hello again everybody.  Can you hit a baseball?  Do you know how to swing a bat?  Can you bunt … go the other way (opposite field that is, not that there is anything wrong with that) … get it deep enough with a guy on third? If you can do just ONE of those things […]

Rambling as Spring is About to Be Sprung

Hello again, everybody. It almost the middle of May, and if you are reading this, you know the Baseball season is well under way. The Cubs are starting to play a bit more competitively, and if starting pitching had anything to do with baseball, the Cubs would be right up there. Oh, starting pitching DOES […]

Rambling While Wondering, Can It Get Worse?

Hello again everybody, and welcome to another Friday filled with Ramblings for the Faithful.  The four weeks of the season have been an outright disaster, and unless Ernie and Billy walk through that door sometime soon, it does not have much promise of improving. It is not as if you don’t know, but hopefully the […]
