Organizational Recap: A Wake Up Call

Published on June 23rd, 201613 comment

It was a wakeup call to get swept by the Cards this week…at home, but the fact is that this Cubs team is still a better team. If anything, this just serves as a reminder that we can’t beat everyone every day. Teams are capable of slumping and streaking, which means when we get to October, we have to be ready. Simple as that.

Let’s hope this is the year.

Organizational Recap: Another Successful Jake Day

Published on June 18th, 201614 comment

I want to thank everyone who had a part in making yesterday another successful Jake Day.

I like to watch a game where I don’t know anything about the outcome, but I was able to hold out yesterday and got to watch a nice, simple win yesterday.
