TEAMS: Chicago Cubs
In the 2014 MLB season, we’ll see the Wrigley Field 100th anniversary. Chicago Cubs fans have an opportunity to participate in the “Wrigley Field Turns 100 Logo Contest.”  Fans will compete to have their design selected as the official logo to be used during the yearlong celebration in 2014. The official logo may be featured at Wrigley Field, on merchandise and memorabilia, and possibly even on the 2014 Chicago Cubs uniforms. “Millions of fans have enjoyed historic moments at Wrigley Field for almost a century, including Chicago Cubs and Bears games, college football, hockey, ski jumps, concerts and more,” said Alison Miller, senior director, Marketing. “The ‘Wrigley Field Turns 100 Logo Contest’ gives our fans throughout the country a chance to commemorate these special memories, whether they’re a 13-year-old student or a professional graphic designer. We’re excited to see our fans’ creativity and look forward to showcasing the winning design throughout the 2014 season.” The winning

Four most likely to exceed expectations

I was working on an idea for a post using the 2013 Cubs projections. The idea was to calculate an approximation of the best case scenario win total. I was going to use the 65th percentile projection for every player just for fun. I'll finish that before the season, but as I was getting the position player projections into a spreadsheet of their own, I noticed four players that...

Cubs’ Ian Stewart Says He is Ready

The Chicago Cubs are taking a big chance on a player returning from injury and who was oft-injured in the past three years. Third baseman Ian Stewart played in only 55 games for the Cubs in 2012 due to a lingering wrist injury, hitting a disappointing .201. His season ended in June, and he had surgery to repair the wrist in July. Stewart resumed baseball activities...

Cubs’ Matt Garza Throws First Pain Free Session

There is good news for the Chicago Cubs and their fans. Starting pitcher Matt Garza threw his first pain-free and discomfort-free bullpen session since last July. CBS Sports.com’s Matt Snyder reports that Garza threw 30 pitches with no discomfort to his triceps or elbow. Garza suffered from elbow stress last July, and it ended his 2012 season. Cubs’ pitching coach...

Northwestern to play more games at Wrigley

Northwestern and the Chicago Cubs have announced a partnership that includes five college football games at Wrigley Field. The dates of the games are still to be determined due to construction work at the Cubs' storied ballpark. In 2010, Illinois beat Northwestern 48-27 at Wrigley Field in a game that required both teams to run offensive plays only toward the west end zone...

The Cubs and Art

I was at the Art Institute of Chicago today with the wife.  One of the unintended benefits of being sporadically employed is all the random free time you have lying around.  And one of the benefits of being a Chicago resident is the discount/free days at the city museums.  So hooray for free crap.  Whenever you’re done checking out our first Dreamcast, read ahead and see some...

Why Does Everybody Hate Ian?

Cubs fans have many interesting pastimes and amongst the ones that draw the most derision is the building up of players who really are not that good. A decade ago Augie Ojeda was the most likely Cub drawing undeserved praise. Today that might be best exemplified by the love of Tony Campana in some corners. I myself have been guilty of this with Mark Bellhorn remaining one of my personal...

Top-ish Story Lines of 2013

Cubs fans still can't watchWith pitchers and catchers voluntary reporting date only five days away, my baseball withdrawals have gone from manageable to unbearable. I have the night time sweats, clammy palms and random abdominal pains, and these symptoms get worse when I try to remember the exact amount of seconds remaining until reporting time, or when I read about what Joe...

5 Northwestern football games at Wrigley Field this decade, Cubs and NU partner up

In some ways, the Northwestern Wildcats and Chicago Cubs were meant for each other. Both had/have major droughts. The NU college football team just won their first bowl game since 1949, and the college basketball has never ever made the NCAA Tournament, 70+ tries. As you’ve heard a million times, the Cubs haven’t been to the World Series since 1945 and won one since 1908. The...

Quick Hitters: NU, Cubs form partnership

At Wrigley Field on Tuesday, Northwestern University and the Chicago Cubs organization announced a historic business partnership.

Northwestern & Wrigley Field: A marriage made in marketing heaven

Northwestern uses the term "Chicago's Big Ten Team" and they've taken more and more steps to claim that territory for their own in recent years, including a historic football game played at venerable Wrigley Field in 2011. Well, on Tuesday the school and the Chicago Cubs announced an agreement to hold at least five future football games at the "Friendly Confines...
