Vote for Your Not-Even-First-Half All-Stars!

In Facepalm by Rice Cube207 Comments

I’m not entirely sure which Cubs actually deserve it given their prolonged slumps, and I wouldn’t be surprised to see a couple picked in reserve and none actually starting from the position player corps, but you can start voting for All-Stars at this time. As in previous years, MLB is letting online voters stuff the ballot box with five votes …

Dreamcast 88: Counting Our Blessings

In by Rice Cube156 Comments

Somehow the Cubs are still winning, so we got together to talk a bit about the frustrating slumps and silly losses in between the fact that the Cubs continue to stay near the top of the standings. We discuss the stupid injury luck, poor yet strangely effective bullpen performances, the rotation depth, and some bonus talk about the awesomeness that …

Back In Action

In Game Threads by Rice Cube27 Comments

I was at a weekend conference in Chicago where I couldn’t actually go to a Cubs game, but did see them win the series against the Brewers. I followed most of the tough opening loss to the Padres before I had to go on airplane mode, but it’s good to know that the Cubs are holding serve while continuing to …

Dreamcast 87: Rapid Unscheduled Disassembly

In by Rice Cube69 Comments

The title is more of a play on words suggesting that a few of the Cubs’ top performers are on the shelf in one way or another, but yet they soldier on!

The Price is Right?

In Commentary And Analysis by Rice Cube22 Comments

We are in like month three of the great Jed Hoyer game of chicken with regard to the big name free agents, though I am still quite confident that this isn’t *it* for the Cubs, they’re just waiting out Scott Boras and other assorted agents in bidding for the remaining free agents, if they’re even interested. Chances are they’re for …

The 2024 Hall of Fame Class

In Major League Baseball by Rice Cube51 Comments

Perhaps it is coincidental that the National Baseball Hall of Fame would announce its inductees in the same week as we got the Oscar and Razzie nominations (I have opinions on those too), but the time has come to welcome more icons into the shrine of humans who were very good at this baseball thing. We know from earlier that …
