Had to throw this one to our guy Kyle. Two great starts in a row, really looks like he’s finding his stride. Today’s effort came out to be 8 innings pitched, 2 runs on 3 hits with only 1 walk. The two runs came on a solo homer and a sac fly. But what won
What a freakin’ whirlwind that was. First of all, it’s a miracle David Ross is still alive after that game. Had to have lasted at least 10 years, right? But in all seriousness, this was one hell of a ballgame. The Cubbies were certainly feeling their oats after beating the Nats the last 3 days

If that isn’t exactly what we’re looking for, I don’t know what is. Not even sure where to start, so I’ll start by saying last night’s win kind of made me feel like this… #MONEY But in all seriousness, this was a complete performance out of the Cubbies. Arrieta pitched 7 absolutely stellar innings, allowing
The other day someone asked me, “If you couldn’t pick Ryne Sandberg, who would be your favorite Cub in your life time?” I literally couldn’t decide. So instead I said, “I have 9 other favorites.” And then I have 10 favorite pitchers. So, without further ado, here they are. Disclaimer: I was born in 1985.
