Tom Ricketts Talks Shop

In News And Rumors by Rice Cube72 Comments

Looks like Tom Ricketts has seen fit to talk to the media today. My vantage point is that the Cubs have drawn their line in the sand, and Scott Boras has drawn his, now they just have to compromise because Ricketts won’t undermine Jed Hoyer by directly negotiating with Boras. It also does sound like he would very much prefer …

Cody vs ACME: Will Cubs Delete Playoff Hopes?

In Commentary And Analysis, Uncategorized by andcounting42 Comments

What’s worse than being a Cubs fan with a World Series addiction? How about being a Looney Tunes fan with a hankering for new movies. Today we heard reports Warner Bros. is shelving straight-up deleting the no-longer-forthcoming film Coyote Vs. ACME. Nostalgia? Joy? Hope? Heartbreak? Pursuit of the incessantly elusive prize? Delete it all, say the lucre-sucking suits. Sorry, fans, …

In by Rice Cube80 Comments

Very little has happened in the new year with respect to the Cubs and what we hoped they would do by now, but Spring Training is a mere two weeks away and so you would think they will do something before pitchers and catchers report. RC & Berselius try to navigate the lack of good content and talk: You can …

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 …

Delayed Gratification, Or Why Haven’t the Cubs Spent Money Yet?

In Commentary And Analysis by Rice Cube53 Comments

There are a million things we can probably rehash about the whole thing where Shohei Ohtani basically wasted everyone’s time, but aside from acknowledging that the most consequential free agent in MLB history was the rate-limiting reagent for the offseason reaction here, let’s not do that rehash and instead figure out what the Cubs are doing (or not doing). Of …

Dreamcast 78: Shohei Hey!

In by Rice Cube70 Comments

I decided to save “rapid unscheduled disassembly” for some other time when we finally see the Padres fire sale or something similarly spectacular, but we did get together just before Thanksgiving and after a very bad MLB decision occurred. Thankfully, in keeping with the theme of the holiday, nobody signed Shohei Ohtani right after we finished recording, so here we …

Dreamcast 75: The Post-Mortem

In by Rice Cube92 Comments

The postseason will continue without the Cubs again, but we got together anyway to talk about what a fun season this was despite the disappointing end. Topics include: This one’s a longer one because we had a lot of stuff to say. We’ll get together again just before the World Series in case there’s some Cubs-related news that popped up …
