CRAZY DAYS OF SUMMER; CUBS WIN

Monday, 21 August: There is an old Nat King Cole song with the refrain that goes ‘roll out those lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer’. Indeed, it could have been written today in response to Sunday’s Cub victory. What with an invasion of Canadians, sonic flybys from US Navy Blue Angel fighters and other assorted

CUBS MAKING POST SEASON PUSH

Sunday, 21 August: The Cubs are making their move. The organization, sleepwalking through most of this 2017 season, has shifted into gear. Taking advantage of a string of weaker opponents -which is what winning teams MUST do- is now a serious undertaking. The team is rising to the occasion as well. Never at a loss

CUBS BEAT REDS, UMPIRES

Thursday, 17 August: In a wild affair at a packed, humid Wrigley Field, the Cubs defeated the Cincinnati Reds despite another bullpen meltdown and some both poor, and strange, umpiring. The Cubs,  sailing along on a 5-1 lead despite a terrible performance by home plate umpire Ryan Blakney and some uneven play by both clubs,

CUBS MAKING MOVE

Monday, 14 August: The Cubs did what they needed to do against the Diamondbacks this weekend in Phoenix. They extracted payback by taking two out of three there; mirroring what Arizona did to them last week at Wrigley. It was, for the most part, and excellent series. Coming home to the last place Cincinatti Reds

CUBS OUTPLAYED YET AGAIN

Sunday, 13 August: The win one lose one Cub team of 2017 seems to be codified, set in stone. Incapable of going on any kind of real run unless playing cellar dwellers,  more ragged play by the patchwork Cub defense and inability to execute gave Arizona the win. Jon Lester, who once again deserved a

AVILA STEPS UP, CUBS WIN

Saturday, 12 August: As confidently predicted by Cubsquest, the loss of Willson Contreras was not the disaster Cub fans (and the relatively clueless media) had expected. Led by the newest Cub, former Detroit catcher Alex Avila, the Cubs rolled to an easy victory over the Diamondbacks 8-3 at Chase Field in Phoenix, Arizona.  Avila worked

CUBS LOSE BUT MAY IMPROVE AS RESULT

Thursday 10 August: The baseball gods dealt the Cubs a serious blow Wednesday at AT&T park in San Francisco. In the midst of losing a series to the last place Giant team, catcher and hitting star Willson Contreras pulled up lame at first trying to leg out an infield hit. Just short of first he

CUBS BEAT GIANTS

Tuesday, 8 August: As expected, the Cubs went to the city by the Bay and won a baseball game. One thing Chicago can do is beat up on weak opposition, and although the 5-3 score sounds close it really wasn’t.  They were ahead 5-0 after 5 innings, on the strength of a 2 run inside
