Series Preview: Reds (5-1) @ Cubs (5-1)

In Series Previews by myles

The Cubs went 5-1 on their season-opening road trip, and now come home to face the surprisingly potent Cincinnati Reds. The Reds' offseason was basically notable for who they weren't able to unload (Brandon Phillips, Jay Bruce, and Joey Votto). They did unload Todd Frazier, but they would have loved for all three to get out of town. Instead, Phillips …

OSS Arrieta wasn't perfect, but he helped his own cause and the Cubs wore down the Diamondbacks 7-3. Three Up 1. Miguel Montero had 2 doubles that were about 4 feet away either up or left from being home runs. He also had a good presentation game, and was generally just a badass. 2. Soler had a 21-run bomb to …

OSS Get well soon, Kyle. Three Up 1. Anthony Rizzo matched Arizona in runs batted in with 6. He must have put the game thread on his locker for bulletin board material. Rizzo, if you're reading this, I'm sorry!!! 2. It's only a matter of time before you all get on my level re: Addison Russell hype. We are in …

Words of Wisdom "I don't want any messages saying 'I'm holding my position.' We're not holding a goddamned thing. We're advancing constantly and we're not interested in holding anything except the enemy's balls. We're going to hold him by his balls and we're going to kick him in the ass; twist his balls and kick the living shit out of …

Addison Russell: A Love Story

In Uncategorized by myles

When the Cubs traded Jeff Samardzija and Jason Hammel for Addison Russell (plus some other goodies!), I started getting pretty excited for the 2017 Cubs. They had just drafted Kris Bryant, Albert Almora seemed like a surefire average CF, and the farm system as a whole looked ready to provide a steady stream of value.  It's a year early, and …
