The last month of Chicago Cubs baseball has been absolutely brutal. It’s difficult enough to watch them, let alone write about them. The All-Star game can’t come soon enough. I’m pretty sure we could all use a break from watching this inept squad continually find new ways to look worse.
It was tolerable at the beginning [...]

Ted Lilly and Gavin Floyd were at the top of their game Sunday night at Wrigley. After six innings of baseball, both pitchers had not allowed a single hit.
The last time two pitchers had gone nine hitless innings in a game was in 1917 when Hippo Vaughn and Fred Toney met at this very [...]

It’s admittedly hard to get excited about this year’s Crosstown Classic. The only good thing that is gonna come out of this series is that someone has to win. Both teams are currently struggling, although the Sox have won two straight, and seem to be far from contenders in their respective divisions.
What makes [...]

Carlos Marmol couldn’t get it done Tuesday night as he blew a 2-1 ninth inning lead allowing Milwaukee to take game one of the series. It was another case of great starting pitching and absolutely no offense for the Cubbies. I’m done expecting anything different from this squad.
Ted Lilly and Yovani Gallardo were [...]

I love it! Carlos Silva has to be one of the best stories in the MLB this season. When the Cubs traded for him in the offseason I thought nothing of it other than being glad I didn’t have to listen to Bradley’s whining anymore. I was expecting Silva to come in and get rocked [...]

When Lou Piniella decided to bring Carlos Zambrano back to the starting rotation he needed to figure out whom he was going to move to the pen. That guy was Tom Gorzelanny. Now I don’t think Gorzelanny was going to be able to continue the pace he set for himself thus far, but it’s looking [...]

More random thoughts and tidbits on what continues to be a frustrating 2010 for Chicago Cubs fans.
- One of the most telling statistics for the Cubs this season is the fact that they’ve scored two runs or less in 21 of their 53 games. Are you kidding me? Two friggin runs or less in 40% [...]

Carlos Zambrano will be back on the mound Wednesday night as the Cubs starter for the first time since April 20th. I’m not sure what to expect, but I can tell you it’s about time. Is anyone else excited to see his comeback?
I don’t necessarily care how his start goes. I’m just [...]

It was not a good three-day weekend for our Cubs, or should I say Cubbies – that’s more what they looked like. They had won eight of 11 before the Cardinals came to town Friday where it all fell apart. Aside from Saturday’s 5-0 win, the Cubs offense was nonexistent.
In what was easily [...]

The Cubs have a huge series beginning Friday with second place St. Louis Cardinals. These three games will definitely show whether or not this team can hang with the big boys in the NL Central. That is, of course, if you can even consider the Cardinals and Reds as “big boys”. I, [...]
