In these 3 games against Philadelphia, the Cubs played just as they were supposed to. Failing to take care of business against inferior opponents has sort of been the 2016 Cubs’ achilles heel. Of course, if you’re really a Cubs homer you’d argue that they’re all inferior opponents. Still, the 2016 Cubs have dropped series
Well shit. That sucked. Nursing a 2 run lead in the 7th, John Lackey (who pitched beautifully tonight) gave up a 2 run homer to Matt Adams. That tied it, and gave way for Adam Warren to come in for what could have been some extended relief, had this one gone to extras. But instead,
The Cubs have lost 5 of their last 9. That includes 2 losses in a 3 game set against division rival Milwaukee, followed by this weekend’s series against San Francisco, where the Cubs dropped another 2 out of 3. Now Chicago travels to St. Louis for 3 more. The Cardinals are 3rd in the division,
Jesus Christ thank you for finally ending that game. Just a display of constant nothingness. Like a beer pong game where nobody can make a shot. But hey, its over, and we won. So lets break it down: It wasn’t until the 5th inning that some blood was spilled in this one. It was a

Another day, another W for the Cubbies. After a hard fought victory Monday night, the off day on Tuesday looks to have helped, as the guys picked up a huge win last night, 9-2 over division rival Cincinnati. Lackey opened up the game by giving up a run on a sacrifice fly in the top
So the Cubbies are stacked up against Alfredo Simon and the Cincinnati Reds tonight at Wrigley. Against Simon, most of the Cub’s lineup has limited experience. Only Ben Zobrist and Anthony Rizzo have more than 10 at-bats against the young righty, and Rizzo is the only player in the lineup tonight for the Cubs who
After sweeping a 2 game set in Anaheim, the Cubs made their way back to Arizona to play 4 games against the Diamondbacks. We got to compete with this Arizona team quite a bit in the Cactus League, with mixed results. The Dbacks have some of the most talented players in all of baseball on their roster.
You’re damn right we’re excited! Here’s a great hype video from the guys over at Sports Mockery, enjoy!
