Hot Takes: Spring Training

Written by , Posted in General

One of the bad things about living in Oklahoma, outside of the tornadoes, is not being able to watch the Cubs on a daily basis. It was nice when WGN was the old WGN, which meant that baseball would be on sporadically throughout spring training. MLB Network looks to have some games on; but some of those are on the time delay format. But, I will take what I can get. So, here are some hot takes from yesterdays game with the Cleveland Indians…a rematch from last years World Series (minus a few starters from Game 7).

What We Learned: Cubs Split Pair as Baseball Returns

Written by , Posted in General

For those Cubs fans starving for baseball again, Saturday gave us our fix as the Cubs split two games to open Spring Training, beating the A’s and falling later in the game to the Giants. It may be Day No. 1, but early camp competitions can officially begin being analyzed now … and it’s about time.

Opening Day is Here…Sort Of

Written by , Posted in General

It’s game day for the Cubs. Today is the first step on the journey to a repeat championship. Honestly, did you ever think you’d read that sentence? I sure did not ever think I’d type it when I started this blog back in 2003, but nevertheless we’re here. Let’s get you caught up on everything that went on in the news yesterday as we look forward to the action this afternoon.

Yesterday’s News – The Games Are Here and We Have a Leadoff Man

Written by , Posted in General

It’s been a little while since I put fingers to my keyboard to tab out a legit post about the Cubs since they won the World Series. I’ll admit, it’s been nice to sit back and just read all the content the new guys have been putting up, but with no one signed up for today, I figured I’d check in with some commentary on various topics in the news lately.
