Pirates 4, Cubs 2 (4.14.17)

In Postgame by berselius75 Comments

OSS: Cubs leave em loaded multiple times. Three up: Bryant and Rizzo had solid days at the plate, and it's not their fault that the guys behind them didn't knock them in. Rizzo did it the hard way, as he was hit twice as part of both bases loaded rallies. It was great to see Hector Rondon back after his …

How The Cubs Went 124-33 Last Year (sort of)

In Uncategorized by myles48 Comments

If you want to be technically correct (the best kind of correct), the Cubs went 103-58-1 last year in the regular season. That said, I was curious what their record was in each 7 game tranche (as that's the number of games in the World Series. The Cubs won the World Series in 7 games last year.), and since it's …

Cubs 4, Dodgers 0 (4.13.17)

In Postgame by berselius8 Comments

OSS: Cubs cruise to an easy series win against the other best team in the NL. Three up: Rizzo's bat showed a few more signs of life, hitting a solo shot in the first and chasing Ryu with an RBI single in the fifth. Oddly enough it's the first home run for either him or Bryant so far.  Addison Muscle …

Cubs 3, Dodgers 2 (4.101.7)

In Postgame by berselius164 Comments

OSS: Cubs raise the banners and pull out a late win. Three up: The Cubs are World Series champions, in case you didn't know. I love the designs on the new banners. Anthony Rizzo's first RBI of the year was a walk-off against a guy who was one of the top five relievers in baseball last year. He also led …

Cubs 7, Brewers 4 (4.9.17)

In Postgame by berselius18 Comments

OSS: The bats are waking up. Three up The box score had Heyward at 2-5 on the day, but it could just easily have been 5-5. He was hitting the cover off the ball today, which is certianly a great sign for a guy who struggled so much last season. He knocked in three of the Cubs runs. Kris Bryant …
