Dreamcast 50: Unlike Dan Haren, We’re Not Retiring Just Yet

It’s been a while (more than four months) since we’ve done one of these, but what an incredible four months it has been!  The Cubs, as you know, are heading to the playoffs, and with that we’re seeing fans talk about signs, make new music, and show a ton of confidence.  Being the Wild Card game is a one-off, win-or-go-home deal, we’re cautiously optimistic and similarly...

Cubs 9, Cardinals 0 (9/7/15)

OSS: Haren dominates the best team in the National League. Three Up 1. Dan Haren probably doesn’t have another performance like the one he spun against the Cardinals in his entire career, but it was nice to see one last masterclass in soft contact. Haren allowed 7 hits and 2 walks, with maybe 4 really well-hit balls by St. Lou. He also struck out 5 and allowed no runs. It’s easy...

Haren says he hasn't held up his end of the bargain
