Red Line Rivalry

Don’t look now but the Northsiders aren’t the only team in Chicago that’s starting to make this baseball season interesting.

Litmus Test

For all intent and purposes a game near the All-Star Break shouldn’t have as much meaning as tonight’s Cubs-Cardinals game. This game should be just like any other with the emphasis being that it’s a team you’re chasing in your own division. However tonight’s game is so much more than that it makes it feel like the Cubs are already […]

Hanging Tough

Hanging Tough

There’s a New Kids on the Block song that’s entitled hanging tough and this years Cubs are exactly that in the rough and rugged NL Central/Wild Card Race.

Fast Out The Blocks

Fast Out The Blocks

Fast out of the blocks is a term that’s used in track and field, most notably sprinting, and while baseball’s most definitely a marathon, a good start is never a bad thing no matter how long the race takes. Dexter Fowler’s game saving, two out, two run home-run yesterday did more than give the Cubs a winning record at the […]

Chicago Baseball Is Back

Chicago Baseball Is Back

The two newest acquisitions for Chicago’s baseball teams took the mound Sunday and Monday and neither of their debuts resulted in a win for the home nine. Jon Lester pitched well in his highly anticipated debut, but the Cubs couldn’t get to Adam Wainwright in a rematch of Game 1 of the 2013 World Series. The Cubs would lose 3-0 […]
