Sometimes I Wonder Why We Bother…

Damnit…

Highs and Lows

Wednesday, April 19th, 2006

An exciting come from behind victory for the Cubs, that featured both a goofy and a heroic Ronny Cedeno, is ultimately overshadowed by not one, but two injuries to key players.
On one play, a bunt by Furcal (of all people) both Scott Eyre and Derrek Lee look to be lost, for at least […]

2-1

Tuesday, April 18th, 2006

I hate losses like this. It was so clearly over the moment Loften stole second base. Actually, I had a feeling the Cubs wouldn’t get another shot behind the plate after Murton waved at strike three to end the top of the ninth.
Oy vey.

The Master

Monday, April 17th, 2006

Maddux goes 8 innings, 87 pitches, 3 hits, 1 run, 6 strikeouts against the Dodgers. The first three innings were perfect and I really felt like he could be heading towards a perfect game, or at least a no-hitter. It was not to be as Furcal hit a ball back up the middle […]

Reality Check

Leave it to the Onion to throw a bucket of cold water on Cub fans.

What Have We Learned So Far?

Friday, April 14th, 2006

After eight games the Cubs are 5-3 with the three losses coming at the hands of the pesky Reds. Well, actually, one of the losses can be contributed to the Reds, the other two I give to Rusch, who is showing how his brilliant work a few years ago when he stepped into the […]

Opening Week

Monday, April 10th, 2006

After one week of play, the Cubs find themselves 5-1 4-1 which is good for a half game behind the 1st place Brewers. While you can never really get a good handle on any team the first week, there are some encouraging signs.
Pitching - Despite another rough opening day start, Zambrano looked excellent saturday […]

Opening Day 2006

Monday, April 3rd, 2006

It was a bit of an ugly win but a win none the less. In a bizarre coincidence, the Cubs tie the club record for runs scored on opening day, 16, that they set last year and starter Carlos Zambrano, just like last year, didn’t make it out of the 5th inning. At least […]

One More Reason Rick Morrissey is an Idiot

Monday, April 3rd, 2006

On friday, Morrissey posted an article on chicagosports.com about the real reason the Tribune needs to sell the Cubs. Not because the Tribune only sees the Cubs as a money-making entity and not because every financial analyst is recommending that TribCo needs to focus on it’s core media assets. No, the reason Ricky wants […]
