Wrigley 100th Birthday Photos

Here are some of the pictures I took from the 100th Birthday celebration if anyone is interested.

A Map of Baseball nation

This is pretty cool. I would like to think there are more Cubs fans out there due to our attendance at other stadiums. But the line between cubs and Cardinals is pretty accurate to what I though

Cougars Host Beloit on Tuesday

My post on the Tuesday afternoon Cougars game.

The Cubs ask the 100 year old guy for a second chance.

So they made a mistake and are at least willing to try and make up for it in someway. I wonder if they guy will take them up on it.

Posting this got me banned on Reddit Cubs...

guess the Kool-Aid drinkers there won't let you have an contrary opinion.

The Gray Lady on the Cubs Blues

New York Times writer Barry Bearak, an admitted Cubs fan, addresses the team's sad situation in today's paper. My recommendation when reading this article is: Be patient. Although it starts out seeming like the same depressing rehash of the team's long history of failure, he actually winds up doing a pretty fair assessment of our current predicament. Perhaps the biggest plus of the article is that he gets both the goat and Bartman stories right. How often do we see that in the mainstream media? The article also contains a whopper of a quote by Tom Ricketts, which I've never noticed before. Really, Tom? It's easy to build an 83-win team that wins at that rate for a decade? I don't want to get too caught up on the number but...I'd scale it down to perhaps "It's easy to build a 70-75 win team." I'm filing that quote under "Another Ricketts PR stumble." Getting back to the author, I'd ding him a little bit for not mentioning that the Chicago Cubs of the 1930s. They were, in fact, a dynasty of sorts. (Granted, a championship-less dynasty...maybe that's an oxymoron.) And I don't completely agree with his final point about payroll. Spending just to get to a "respectable" dollar amount is not going to adequately change the team's fortunes, in my view. Anyway, despite its initial appearance, this article is worth a read -- especially now that the Cubs-Yankees has been delayed a day. (Life ain't nothin' but money and Fanshotz, b&*@#es!)

Why Pitchers and Tommy John know each other so well

thought this was a good article detailing why so many pitchers are having TJ surgery so early in their careers. the article gives some reasons as to why and how they're injuring themselves...thought it was a good read and wanted to share...

Are the Cubs about to pick new broadcast partners (in 2 to three weeks)?

If you haven't already heard, "The Chicago Cubs are believed to be in the final stages of discussions about new radio and television broadcast contracts."
