TEAMS: Chicago Cubs

“Wayne’s World, Wayne’s World, Party Time, Excellent”.  The riff made famous by Saturday Night Live legends Mike Myers and Dana Carvey during their sketches and later, two full feature movies.  Not forgotten is that Wayne and Garth were from Aurora, Illinois, just outside of Chicago.  Two young female Cubs fans dressed up on honor of the “screen legends” in a hilarious get up.  Watch (courtesy of Hey, might as well make the Cubs games more interesting than watching a last place team 22.5 games out of first. Which are the real duo?

Cubs would do well to give Scott Baker September innings

For Chicago Cubs starting pitcher Scott Baker, the 2013 season has not produced much promise. After missing all of 2012 due to Tommy John surgery, Baker and the Cubs had anticipated that he pitch in Wrigley Field by this year's All-Star break. That obviously did not happen. Baker may not pitch at all in 2013 either even though the rosters have expanded for the September stretch...

These Wayne’s World Cubs Fans Are My New Crush. Get The Net!

Wayne’s World Cubs fans She will be mine. Oh, yes – she will be mine. Welcome to “Brandon Stroud finds his new dream girls” episode 1, as a pair of female Chicago Cubs fans showed up to a game dressed like Wayne Campbell and Garth Algar from Wayne’s World. I’m not sure how to explain how they make me feel, but as soon as I saw them this started playing in my head. Not...

Murphy's two-run HR gives Cubs 9-7 win over Marlins

Donnie Murphy hit the go-ahead two-run homer while Dioner Navarro homered and drove in three runs as host Chicago salvaged the finale of a three-game set against Miami. The Cubs trailed by three runs entering the bottom of the seventh before Navarro singled home two runs and Murphy greeted Ryan Webb (2-6) with the decisive blast to left.

Theo Epstein gives Daniel Bard another chance to see if he can throw strikes

From 2009-2011 (during which time Theo Epstein was the Red Sox GM) Daniel Bard was one of the best set up men in baseball.   And then he mysteriously forgot how to find the plate.  Bard failed as a starter for Boston in 2012, then responded terribly to being demoted to AAA. With Pawtucket he walked 29 batters (and hit another 10) in just 32 innings, with an ERA of 7.03.  This...

CHICAGO (AP) -- Donnie Murphy homered to cap a four-run rally in the seventh inning and the Chicago Cubs connected four times Wednesday to beat the Miami Marlins 9-7. Murphy's two-run shot put the Cubs ahead 8-7. Starlin Castro, Dioner Navarro and Ryan Sweeney each added solo home runs for Chicago. The Cubs avoided a sweep and prevented the Marlins from winning four straight...

Illini QB Aaron Bailey: a new favorite Illinois football topic

The talk from Illini Nation around QB Aaron Bailey reminds me of the talk from Chicago Cubs Nation surrounding Javier Baez. Or Albert Almora. Or (insert another Cubs blue chip Minor League prospect’s name here). It’s the same sentiment- accepting that losing, and extreme losing at that, is inevitable in the present. Therefore, instead look to the future and focus on the can...

Theo Epstein Reunites With His Former Reliever Daniel Bard

Bard will be reunited with his former General Manager and current Chicago Cubs President Theo Epstein from their time together with the Red Sox organization. The former top...
