They’d been talking about it for a while now, but it became official yesterday: the Northwestern Wildcats and the Illinois Fighting Illini will square off at Wrigley Field on November[Read More…]

This Chicago Cubs offense. It is becoming hilarious in its predictability. Unfortunately for us, it is predictably bad.
From one Chicago Cubs teammate, speaking of the Zambrano to the bullpen move sounds like a mix of surprise and forced optimism to me… “That’s unbelievable,” starter Randy Wells said.[Read More…]
This feels so very foreign. The offense came alive, and the pitching looked good – particularly (knock on wood) Carlos Silva, who continues to look like a, you know, Major[Read More…]
Oh. My. God. The Cubs have shaken up their rotation, sending workhorse Carlos Zambrano to the bullpen in order to make room for injured starter Ted Lilly. Zambrano will start[Read More…]

Clearly, if you’re going to watch only one inning in each game this season, the inning to watch is the 8th. Roy Oswalt was dealing, and the Cubs came up[Read More…]
That was actually a much closer call than the score leads on. The Cubs were basically being dominated by … Felipe Paulino? I guess it could be worse – they[Read More…]
