Dreamcast 74: Fumes

In by Rice Cube44 Comments

Kind of sucky that we have actual jobs and lives and responsibilities that make it so our recording sessions often coincide with Cubs games, and also sucky that sometimes, the Cubs don’t win those games. But methinks most of what we said during this latest poop of a loss is still applicable as the Cubs remain in contention in the …

Dreamcast 73: The Moving Goalposts

In by Rice Cube107 Comments

We promise never to talk about magic numbers again too prematurely because that past stretch kind of went to hell in a hurry, but the Cubs are still miraculously in a good position to earn that postseason berth should they choose to play better in these final two weeks, and the first game back at home was a pretty good …

In by Rice Cube146 Comments

As the Cubs continue to chip away at their deficits in both the division and wild card races, RC, SVB, and Berselius hang out to consider how to bridge the rotation until Stroman gets back (and hopefully doesn’t suck), Drew Smyly going to the bullpen, trying to get Seiya Suzuki right, and extending Cody Bellinger.

Glad the Cubs didn’t blow it in the ninth, but they probably should figure out how to find a better lefty reliever. Anyway, RC & Berselius hang out to discuss the happenings around the Trade Deadline now that it’s over, including what the Cubs did. We also hope for a quick fix for Marcus Stroman and Seiya Suzuki while also …

RC, AC, and berselius may have ranted the Cubs into a shocking comeback…or not, it could go either way. Topics include whether to buy, sell, or stand pat, trading the farm for a certain uberstar, and more.
