Dreamcast 77: Back on the Bandwagon Again

In by Rice Cube69 Comments

Welp, we had this thing done on Sunday night and then the Cubs went and blew up our plans, so we recorded again. Mind you it’s a good thing that they did the thing, but still, considering how most of us have actual jobs, this is as early as I could get it to you (dying laughing) This time: We’ll …

An Unexpected Hire

In News And Rumors by Rice Cube41 Comments

Presented without comment for now… Probably more later. Looks like the Cubs just waited until after that random deadline and pounced: Craig gonna get himself paid: And it seems it’s a straight firing for David Ross, bummer for him:

Dreamcast 68: Making It Worthwhile

In by Rice Cube104 Comments

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 …

The Final Countdown (UPDATES)

In Commentary And Analysis by Rice Cube143 Comments

I think we would all have liked the Cubs to sweep the Cardinals, but sweeps are hard no matter the team, and winning the season series while basically forcing the other guys to sell off all their good players is fun too. But it hasn’t been just the bad teams that the Cubs have done well against, as I remarked …

You can check out the¬†podcast page¬†or just click on the …

Division or Bust

In Commentary And Analysis by Rice Cube99 Comments

Given the lull between games as the Cubs traveled to London and have to do their whole tour and marketing thing before the weekend games, there isn’t much in the way of Cubs news especially since they aren’t getting any players in the next round of All-Star voting anyway. We talked a wee bit about London and All-Star stuff on …

The Plan, Revisited

In Commentary And Analysis by Rice Cube35 Comments

I recall, nearly six months ago when the Cubs basically passed over every impact free agent save for Dansby Swanson (who was a consensus Plan B), we tried to figure out what the plan was even as the sound bytes were flying: The fear then was that this team would be hard pressed to go .500, but I guess most …

Pondering Pitching

In Facepalm by Rice Cube112 Comments

To preface this, and for those of you who listened to the latest Dreamcast, we sort of remarked on it too: Now it’s easy to blame David Ross for a lot, but I imagine a lot of the directives to use guys in certain spots of the lineup probably aren’t his decision, although he does use substitutions (pinch-hitting, pitching changes) …

Dreamcast 59: Shrug Emoji

In by Rice Cube19 Comments

Why is it so hard these days for the Cubs to score runs, let alone win a baseball game? We did this yesterday on AC’s birthday where he got to tell us a little bit about his undying love for Nick Madrigal, and then we went ahead and discussed the rookies (well, Mervis is still here, Morel is back, and …
