Zubaz pic via the Chicago Cubs. The 2013 Chicago Cubs have the potential for another dreadful season, which means the futility will continue for the storied franchise yet another year, but that shouldn’t stop fans from coming out to Wrigley Field to cheer them on as they quickly plummet to the basement of the NL Central. At the very least Cubbies supporters should make their way to the ballpark for the September 23 game against the Pirates. Not only will ticket holders get to see budding Pirates star Andrew McCutchen, but they’ll also get to partake in what may possibly be the MLB giveaway of the year—nay, of the century—when the Cubs will hold their inaugural Zubaz Night, aka Zubazpalooza 2013. With their special event ticket fans in attendance will get a pair of the Zubaz pants in Chicago Cubs colors picture above, which are perfect for lounging around the house, embarrassing your kids when they have friends over, or wearing the next time you time travel back to the early 90s. But seriously though, I’m betting that with the wonderful cross-section of humanity that graces the bleachers during a typical Cubs game, September 23 might be the only night the product in the stands looks worse than the product on the field. [Big League Stew] The post Zubazpalooza 2013 may be the only reason to go to a Cubs game this season appeared first on Last Angry Fan.

“Hello again, everybody.”
Those three words, while probably not as often said as, “I’ll have another,” were always on the tip of Harry Caray tongue. A week after what would have been the amazing broadcaster’s 99th birthday, I wanted to lead this edition of Ramblings with a shout-out to the man that made me fall in love with baseball.

This season, the Chicago Cubs are giving their fans an 82-card Topps Archives set, featuring current and former Cubs players on classic Topps card designs. Chicago Cubs season ticket holders will receive the cards as part of their season ticket package. Their set will be a little more bougy, as (well, season ticket holders are a little more bougy to begin with) as their set will...
I find myself waffling on this subject quite a bit, because as all Cubs fans do, I just want the best for the Cubs. I want them to win, and to do that I want them to be able to make truckloads of money. There are many obstacles preventing the Cubs from making as much money as they should given the brand name recognition, the history (most of it crap, but you know, we’re committed...
Your browser does not support iframes.Pittsburgh Pirates center fielder Andrew McCutchen is really good at baseball. He can hit, he can throw, he can catch, and he can run. In fact, you might even say McCutchen can do it all on the diamond.But on Friday, he tried his hand at working a video camera.The All-Star wasn't in the lineup for his team's game against the Baltimore...
