Autumnal Bliss

Autumnal Bliss

Today marks my first unofficial day of fall, and although autumn started a week ago, I usually tend to wait until the first of October to welcome the best season of the year. Why’s it the best season you ask, well simply put it’s the most pristine time of year. The leaves are changing, it’s getting cooler, sports and TV […]

White Sox Preview 2014

White Sox Preview 2014

The 2013 White Sox had a lot of issues.  They were the worst offensive team in the league, scoring under 600 runs. Their pitching staff, which has plenty of potential, vastly underachieved. Consider the case of Chris Sale who is one of the best pitchers in the game and who, at  almost 25 years of age, has the trajectory and stuff to […]

Chicago vying for Tanaka

If you love baseball then of course you’ve seen the Major League movies probably more than once in your life. In the second installment of the series there was a LF in the movie named Isuro Tanaka who was playing the position like a Kamikaze pilot.  It’s been twenty years since that movie was released and lo and behold the real life Tanaka […]

José Abreu Pulls Up His Sox

Just when you thought Theo Epstein and the Cubs were the only team in the Windy City gobbling up international prospects, the Southsiders go and nab themselves the biggest fish in the Caribbean Sea by signing Cuban 1B José Abreu to a 6 year $68 Million deal. That easily surpasses the previous largest contract for a Cuban player, which was Yasiel Puig’s 6/$42 Million, […]

LCS’ Stall Offensive Production

LCS’ Stall Offensive Production

There have been seven games played in this year’s championship series, and among these games there have been four shutouts and three 1-0 games.  Three of the remaining four teams in contention possess some of the most potent offenses in the game, so it seems ever more clear this year that when it comes to playoff baseball, runs come at a premium.  Furthermore, this year it’s turning into […]

The NLCS matchup was set Wednesday night as the St. Louis Cardinals advanced by defeating the Pittsburgh Pirates 6-1 behind a CG from Adam Wainwright. The Cardinals offensively did most of their damage with the long ball as they got two-two run homers from David Freese and Matt Adams. The former number one overall pick Gerrit Cole was given the […]

Cubs Become Spectators To Their Own Demise!

Cubs Become Spectators To Their Own Demise!

As feared, the Cubs are engaged in full-on implosion of postseason aspirations. The start of their homestand was just about as awful as you could get and, as sadly anticipated, the Vegas favorites came into town and pushed the Cubs further down the slippery slope that only a week ago saw them at 9 games out of the wild-card play-in game. Now the Cubs have […]

MLB Trade Deadline Hyper Active in Chicago – Cleanse By Fire

Chicago’s baseball landscape has taken many turns over the last four months of regular season action. On the Southside, the White Sox are on pace to realize one of the worst seasons in 40 years. Their starting pitching has never really gelled, and the offense hasn’t lived up to expectations formed by last year’s performance. At this time last year, […]
