Dreamcast 81 (and 80 too): No Content

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 …

Dreamcast 79: Yellow Journalism

In by Rice Cube24 Comments

Nothing much happened during the Winter Meetings, and then Shohei Ohtani did his thing and the journalistic shit hit the fan, so we got together to talk about the aftermath of the Ohtani decision, the timeline of free agent excitement (or lack thereof), the various media failures that led to Bob Nightengale of all people calling them out on their …

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 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 …

Dreamcast 76: Magnificent Seven

In by Rice Cube52 Comments

Congratulations to the Texas Rangers and the Arizona Diamondbacks for giving MLB a postseason ratings nightmare, and for preventing me from calling this episode “The Full Dombrowski” just for berselius. Topics include: We’ll try to do something right after the World Series where I actually do some research to see what the Cubs can feasibly do to make a 2024 …

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 …

Dreamcast 74: Fumes

In by Rice Cube101 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 …

Dreamcast 71: House Money

In by Rice Cube92 Comments

RC & AC hang out by themselves this time because everyone else had better things to do or whatever. Topics include: I did a bit more editing this time but got pissed off several times because my mouse crapped out here or there and changed settings all funky on me, so at least this is a short one. You can …

Dreamcast 70: This Game Will Drive You Crazy

In by Rice Cube106 Comments

RC, AC, SVB & berselius hang out as the Cubs were crapping the bed against the Tigers (but they did win the finale and the series) to ponder the state of the Cubs. Topics include: Apologies for the lazy edit, ran out of time and have to do actual work here and there for a real job that pays money. …
