WORLD SERIES: WHY IT MATTERS TO CUBS

Sunday, 22 October: There is an imperative for Cub fans to follow the World Series for a change. In the past, the success of the Cub team was as much an accident as a design; only 1984, and to an extent 2003 were the result of building towards a winner. Even then it was the

CUB’S END MEANS NEW BEGINNING

Friday, 20 October: The end of the 2017 baseball season for the Chicago Cubs means a new beginning. As Winston Churchill famously said after Dunkirk, ‘this isn’t the end, nor is it the beginning of the end. It is the end of the beginning’. This applies to the Cubs as well. The new ownership came

CUBS BEAT DODGERS, UMPS

Thursday 19 October: The World Champions are finding that nothing is going to come easy this year. In stark comparison to the relatively effortless romp of last year, they have had to scrape and claw their way to find themselves still alive in the playoff hunt, if just barely. Once again it came down to

CUBS LIVE TO FIGHT ANOTHER DAY

The all or nothing Cubs were more all than nothing tonight at Wrigley; avoiding NLCS elimination by edging out the Dodgers 3-2, and forcing a game five Thursday night. It was a wild evening at Clark and Addison, with the wind whipping out and the ball traveling record distances.  All runs scored by both teams

CUBS FACE ELIMINATION

Wednesday, 18 October: It’s come to this. Win or go home. In what looks very much like a repeat of the 2015 season, the Cubs have played just good enough to make the Championship series, only to be seriously outclassed by the opponent. It was the Mets 2 years ago who’s power arms shut down the

CUB HITTERS, BULLPEN FAIL

Monday, 16 October: Before everybody out there trashes John Lackey, and the social media was fierce against the 40 year old soon to retire veteran, keep one key stat in mind. The Cub team is hitting .172 in post season play. You want to focus on failure? MVP Kris Bryant has 9 strikeouts in 28

CUBS FALL TO DODGERS

Sunday, 15 October: The Chicago Cubs gave it  a game effort Saturday night at historic Chavez Ravine. Along with Wrigley Field, it is one of the oldest ballparks in the major leagues. But it’s southern California beauty was lost on an obviously exhausted Cub team. Staked to an early 2-0 lead on a home run

CUBS NOW UNDERDOGS

Saturday, 14 October: This was bound to happen; Cub fans were warned -by  Cubsquest on multiple occasions,  among others- that the Cubs transition from perennial losers to baseball’s darlings would be short lived. Once they ran the table like 2016’s monster year, the zeitgeist would shift. Boy, did it. With their hard won victory over
