TEAMS: Chicago Cubs
This strange moment was captured by cameras during last night’s Cubs-Cardinals game. It shows one Cubs fan leaning over and biting the shoulder of another, a woman who is talking to a Cardinals fan. I’m going to go ahead and assume these two Cubs fans know each other (god, I hope so) and that the guy was either a little too drunk, a little too jealous, or just didn’t want the girl talking to a Cards fan. Either way, he’s wound up as the weirdest guy on the Internet today. [Deadspin] Article found on: Next Impulse Sports

JOT: Cubs Minor League Recap 7-10-13

First, I'd like to apologize for the extreme lateness of the JOT today. Usually, I bang them out at work (I get here an hour early and write it). Today that didn't happen because I was very busy all day. It'll probably happen again tomorrow. Perhaps someday this will actually be my job, but I'm probably several years away from that happening, if ever.  Next, I'...

JOT: Cubs Minor League Recap 7-12-13

Albuquerque Isotopes 0 @ Iowa Cubs 3 This one was a pitching duel, so not much in the way of offense. J.C. Bocan had a 2-run double that put the game away in his 1-3 day. Darnell McDonald was 2-2 with a walk. Other than that, meh. Guillermo Moscoso was tremendous, though, taking a no-hitter into the 8th, finishing with a line of 8 IP, 1 H, 0 ER, 2 BB's and 5 Ks. Brian Schlitter...

Brett Jackson Is Missing!

First, the news to set up:   So, I think that debate is done. The point: Brett Jackson isn’t with Iowa and isn’t on the roster given to real reporters covering the team. — Tommy Birch (@TommyBirch) July 13, 2013 Tommy Birch is pretty much the Iowa Cubs’ beat reporter and he’s on his game, so if Brett Jackson is missing as reported, then we take it at his word.  That said...

Good night for being a Cubs fan

I should be in bed after getting home from tonight’s surprisingly easy Cubs victory over the St. Louis Cardinals, but I’m still on a bit of a high.  No matter the record, it’s always fun to go to the ball park and watch my favorite team, and it’s extra fun to watch them play well and win.  Yes, the Cubs are still far back in the division and wild-card races, and yes, they’re...

Preview: Kelly looks to hault Cubs recent success

The Cubs try to keep rolling Friday when they continue a four-game set against the visiting Cardinals, who could be without Matt Holliday. Fourth-place Chicago (41-49) has won five of six and 16 of 27 after taking...

Moving In The Right Direction … Aren’t We?

Before I start, let me point out that I’m sitting in my room listening to Pat Hughes call the Angels’ shellacking of our beloved Boys in Blue. But I’m still an eternal optimist, and if I need to look at current trends to feed that optimism, then so be it. Last year at the All-Star break, the Cubs were 33-52. Barring a dozen runs in the next 2 innings tonight, they’ll be 40...
