TEAMS: Chicago Cubs
Being a Cubs fan can be tough, but imagine being a Cubs mascot.  It ain’t easy, folks.  It’s hot and it’s awkward.  And often times you want to punch people in the face. This unofficial Cubbies mascot did just that at John Barleycorn bar when some guy picked a fight with the wrong bear.  I’m sure partially due to jealousy and partially due to his curiosity about Furries (look it up).  According to onlookers the antagonizer …tried to trip the mascot three times and then threw himself into the mascot in an attempt to start a fight.  The mascot ignored all of this until he got his head pulled off.  After the guy was punched in the face, and his friend was thrown to the ground, the guy knocked the mascot’s tip jar out of his hands.

Chicago Cubs: The unthinkable option would be the wrong one

Chicago Cubs: Team needs more than just Bonifacio to step up

Emilio Bonifacio is the change-of-pace player the Chicago Cubs need in their organization. He set a modern-day Major League Baseball record with nine hits in the team’s first two games of the season and after a 3-for-5 night in a 7-6 loss to the Pirates Tuesday night at Wrigley Field, Bonifacio has a .515 batting average. That’s impressive for a player who was designated for...

Renteria backs Veras as Cubs closer and gets first ejection

Jose Veras is already raising the stress levels for Cubs fans and forcing his manager to answers questions about the closer’s job. “I’ll cross that bridge when I get to it,” Renteria said. “But right now, I think it would be really premature for me to make a decision or say that I would change something. I got to see what’s going to happen first.” Renteria didn...
