Please stop blaming the WBC for Soto

As you can see, many who played are doing just fine.  The WBC is not why he looks out of shape and overweight.  To blame the WBC for Soto, makes no sense, just by looking at Lilly or Fukudome to...

Celebrate the 30th anniversary of the 1984 Cubs

In 1984, the Chicago Cubs captured the hearts and minds of Chicago sports fans. Even though they fell short of winning the World Series, the team left an indelible mark on a generation of Cubs fans who remember hearing Van Halen's "Jump" open WGN telecasts.

Lou on DeRosa trade: "There's only so much payroll you can have."

We let a hyper-valuable guy making $4.7M per year go for "payroll" purposes? I already have a 2009 tally sheet ready for each time I say to myself "[Darn], I wish he had DeRosa right now."

Banishing Echoes: Cubs 3, Reds 2

On September 30, 2004, as the wild-card contending Cubs were melting down, they had to, absolutely had to, beat the Reds at Wrigley Field to keep any sort of postseason hopes alive (after having...

Pitching? Check. Fielding? Check. Hitting? Not So Much: Cubs 1, Reds 2

This recap of the Cubs' 2-1 loss to the Reds will be almost as short as the game itself (which ran a snappy two hours and twenty-eight minutes). Ted Lilly took a no-hitter into the sixth inning,...

Sixty-Nine: Cubs 11, Astros 4

What, you thought that was some kind of sex reference? On this site? Sixty-nine is, of course, the number of wins the Cubs have after today's outstanding 11-4 Cubs win over the Astros, the last...

Mugged: Cubs 11, Astros 7

I shouldn't complain, not after the Cubs win again, 11-7 over the Astros on a muggy afternoon that had hints of yesterday's rainfall even while the sun was shining most of the day. But I'm going...

The Pulse: DeRo Interviews Dempster

Abslutely hilarious, but very very cool read... my favorite part... DEROSA: I'm going to set a scene for you: Kerry Wood on the mound, Game 7 of the World Series in Wrigley Field. Ground ball to second, DeRosa throws it to D-Lee, game over, Cubs are World Series champs. What happens? DEMPSTER: Pandemonium. I'd say the top of the Budweiser building blows off. People storm the field. Huge chunks of ivy are ripped off the walls. Police cars are turned over on Addison, on Waveland, on Sheffield, and you can't walk within a 45-block radius of Wrigley Field because people will be drinking there for seven to 10 days. What a great feeling.

Finally! - Cubs 6, Marlins 3

Before last night, the last time the Cubs beat the Florida Marlins -- anywhere -- was April 25, 2006, when that sorry team was actually five games over .500 at 12-7 and Michael Restovich (remember...

Some Days... Cubs 2, Giants 4

If the Cubs' attempted comeback in the 9th inning today -- they did manage to get the tying run on base with one out -- had been successful, I'd have thrown up my hands in amazement, and there's...

That's More Like It: Cubs 9, Giants 2

It's West Coast week -- for four days, at least -- and that means the rest of you are going to have to fill in the blanks, because I had to go to sleep (sure, I'll take one for the team, but not...
