The Giants’ offense is far from a powerhouse, so I suppose it is possible that Carlos Zambrano could hold them down enough today to give the Cubs an ever-so-tiny chance to win against Tim Lincecum. Over/under on Lincecum strikeouts today? Let’s go with eight.
Wherein I discuss the changes to the site that you’re probably noticing right about now.
It sucks that the game was called early, but, let’s face it, the Cubs weren’t coming back tonight.
Tonight’s game against the Giants will be the first Saturday night game at Wrigley Field in nine years, and the first time one was actually scheduled in 13 years (the[Read More…]
Friday the 13th WHAT. Good starting pitching performance? Check. Good production at the top of the lineup? Check. Good situational hitting? Check. The Cubs just made my evening – is[Read More…]
It’s Friday the 13th, and the Chicago Cubs are expected to lick their Red-and-Cardinal-induced wounds against a team that leads the NL West and has won six in a row.[Read More…]
You’ll forgive the delay in today’s EBS – the beer in which I was drowning my frustration tasted too good to think about discussing this shit show. Actually, there isn’t[Read More…]
It’s always nice to go into the third game of a series with a chance to win the series, but beating Jaime Garcia today – behind Casey Coleman facing the[Read More…]

In the Cubs/Cardinals series preview, I noted that the Cubs’ pen hadn’t given up a run in 22.1 innings, and quipped that, because I’d mentioned it, they would blow a[Read More…]
Quick. Name the position at which the Chicago Cubs would experience the most severe downgrade on the current roster if the starter went down with injury. *Jeopardy Music* Correct. It’s[Read More…]
Nothing grinds my gears quite like when the Cubs come back late – and, say, tie the game in the 7th – only to lose it soon thereafter. Well, nothing[Read More…]
Once again, the series starting today has the look of one where the Cubs should win one (Wednesday’s Garza v. Westbrook tilt), should lose one (Thursday’s Coleman v. Garcia), and[Read More…]
