The Chicago Cubs are nearing the Abyss

I really don’t know what to say. I am at a loss for words. What is there to say? There is not an answer. And if you think Anthony Rizzo is one, put down the drink right now. I saw the movie “The Abyss” when I was young. I really don’t remember anything other than it was under water and I was scared. And watching the Cubs … well, I feel the same thing. I might not see the...

Kerry Wood: What if?

It is only human to look back and wonder what could have been. We all do it, and in the case of the 1998 National League Rookie of the Year award winner Kerry Wood, who retired earlier this week, it is a haunting epitaph on a career that could have led to Cooperstown. His slurve along with a dominating fastball were practically unhittable. I remember the first time I saw him pitch...

NL Central Quarter Report Card

Chicago CubsHitters: C-. OK, I can't completely pan the Cubs offense, despite them having the third fewest runs in the NL. Bryan LaHair has been AWESOME at first base, hitting ten homers and OPSing 1.020 in his first extended stint in the major leagues. There is a little bit to be afraid about with him, notably the 30% strikeout rate and .405 BABIP. Starlin Castro is doing his...

Pittsburgh Pirates vs. Chicago Cubs – Game 45

It’s very rare I can combine things I really like. This time I knocked it out of the park. I love wrestling, CM Punk, Frank Sinatra, and of course the Pirates. So I just knew I had to include that! Hopefully the Pirates used their day off to LEARN HOW TO HIT A BASEBALL LIKE [...]
