How close are we really?

I'm not going to go sabremetrics on everyone, I know this will lead to ridicule from all you regulars.  This is strictly based on the good old fashion eye test.  Watching Chicago's southside team...

Derrick Lee

I'm definetly going to sound like a meathead, but the story of Sunday nights game to me was Lee's comments afterwards.  "It was a great homestand....."    You have to be kidding me!  I understand...

Remaining schedule

Looking at wins and loses the Cubs remaining schedule may appear easy.  This current 7 game trip has 3 in SD where they always struggle, then 4 in LA.  Later in mid September they go on another 10...

Kappy and my favorite Hippy

I'm usually able to laugh off kiss ass local media, but Dave Kaplan and Paul Sullivan really got me going.  Maybe it's just the frustration of this season, but what I heard and read late this week...

Trying to see the BIG PICTURE

As fans, especially Cub fans, we live not only game by game, but inning by inning.  There is no way a team that has played so lifeless most times this year couldn't use a shot in the arm.  The play...

A FEW THOUGHTS.....

Why do I think with 5 games left and the Cubs 6 games out of first all the 'experts" at the major networks will still be predicting the Cubs to win the division......Can we also send a memo to...

Milton

I was in favor of the Bradely signing and still like it.  You have to be kidding me though with the start he's had.  He's already missed games due to injury.  He's already been ejected from a...

Anyone catch Steve Stone's act on ESPN1000 the other day?  The guy really has a great baseball mind, but his constant pot shots at the Cubs is just getting old and hurting his credibility in this...

Be patient on 2009 roster

I know Hendry's moves seem somewhat puzzling, but we really should wait and see how it all turns out.  The Olson-Cedeno trade did free up a spot on the 40 man roster and added a decent ?! major...

The enthusiasm by all the posters here is awesome.  There's no doubt how big Cub baseball is.  I just have a feeling alot of the talk we hear might not be so accurate, especially since the names...

A Few Quick Comments

It's hard to find many negatives with this yars Cub's, but I think are middle relief had a reality check lately.  From afar Gaudin looks good, but even when he gets guys out he seems to get hit...

Soriano

I agree with the majority of Cub fans that Soriano has been a disappointment.  There really is no way the Cubs will get their moneys worth out of him.  Having said that, I'm not sure he deserves to...

How did Soriano go the whole off-season without his leg healing....and if it didn't heal during the off-season how is it going to get better as he plays through it?...............How does Rich Hill...

Soriano

By no means would I be critical of Jim Hendry for signing Soriano.  At the time the Cubs were desperate for an impact corner outfielder.  It just appears that he's a tough piece in Lou's plan for...

Medias negative perception....

I've always considered myself a pessimistic Cub fan.  All through my youth everything appeared so rosey with the Cubs as they continued to win 70 games a year.  The looks I would get from people...

I guess we shouldn't be surprised how stories seem to grow and grow in our local media.  This seems to be especially true with those who cover the Cubs.  Most of the time it's positive such as...

Hendry?

Seems like the Cubs would have secured that left-handed outfield bat before they traded a Left-handed outfield bat.  Most people would summize Hendry has another deal complete.  I'm sure that's the...

Although I don't hate jacque like many Cub fans, I'm confused by the recent love.  Agreed he plays a average centerfield, BUT HE CAN'T THROW.  Any plus he gives us offensively is negated by his...

I was blind to Sammy when he put up those monster numbers for the Cubs.  The 3 consecutive 60 plus homer years are truly amazing.  Sammy and my relationship was like a first love.  The girl who...

Hendry and typical Cubdumb

 It would just be the Cubs luck that with the possibility of a new GM next year there are major decisions to be made this year.  Is Hendry a lame duck GM?  If so, who's responsible for the future...
