I Was The Official Scorer At A Minor-League Game. It's Not As Easy As You Think.

Several weeks ago, I was the official scorer for a Midwest League game in Lansing, Michigan. It's not as easy as it looks. In the ninth inning of a Midwest League game between the South Bend Cubs and Lansing Lugnuts on Friday, July 17, Sou...

Cubs Won't Move Bullpens Until 2017

When I Think Of This Cubs Playoff Run, I Feel ___________

Warning! Touchy-feely, non-analytical article coming. (Don't say I didn't tell you.) Just how do you feel about the Cubs' current playoff run? Me, I'm "all-in" on this one; the Kris Bryant walkoff homers, ...

On The Horizon: Cubs vs. Dodgers Series Preview

In which the Cubs again face one of the best lefthanders in the game. If the Cubs can win this series, I'd consider this a successful West Coast road trip. The Dodgers are a good team, but they do have their flaws and the Cubs have already...

Cubs Heroes and Goats: Game 126

Giants 9, Cubs 1: Well, What Did You Expect?

The Cubs had not lost a road series since before the All-Star break. This one was never going to be easy no matter how well Dan Haren did, and he didn't. Haren's downfall this year has been home runs. Until T...

Cubs Heroes and Goats: Game 125

Two bumpy innings by Kyle Hendricks pushed him to the top of the Goat podium on Wednesday night. Some mornings it's very difficult to come up with something snappy to say here (or even something that's even borderline creative). I've got n...

Giants 4, Cubs 2: The Little Things

You can't win 'em all. But the Cubs could have won this one. What if... Kris Bryant doesn't try for second base after his two-run single in the first inning? Would the
