One should not describe themself but have their enemies describe them. you can quote that :)

Ive been told i'm a nice guy. I like sports (obviously I'm a big Cubs fan) and goofing off and just hanging out. I'm a full time student at the moment. I'm an eclectic guy with a lot going on.

Next Year's Rotation, Based Solely On In House....Talent

I hesitate calling what we have now as talent. But I can't come up with a better word I tweeted the other day (@DJFreddie10 if you're interested, I talk sports but am by no means a professional...


Is 3/5 of the infield of the future set/Should Darwin Barney be traded?

Wanted to have an open discussion on whether or not Darwin Barney should be the second baseman of the future. Is he the second baseman on a world series winning team? Is it too early to start...

Wrigley Field fake bomber pleads guilty to federal charges


Did anyone else hear about this?! I had never heard of anything relating to someone being arrested. Article says the attack was planned during the Dave Matthews concert, not a game. Still, scary stuff.

Slightly OT: Phillies Release Dontrelle Willis


After three outings, his era was over 15. Hard to rationalize keeping him on the roster. Sad to see, I was really hoping he'd make a come back. Makes you wonder what could have been if he wasn't traded so many times, etc.

"We're Not Rebuilding, We're Building"


Interesting how this article by Carrie Muskat on cubs.com says the team isn't rebuilding but they'e doing everything a rebuilding team does. "Let's get rid of all the players and start from scratch but not call it rebuilding"

Cubs Claim Adrian Cardenas


Seems like DJLM's replacement. Plays a little bit of everywhere, primarily infield other than 1B. Could be competition for Barney. Don't think he's going to blow anyone away.


Right Field Bleachers

Just wondering if anyone had information on when construction on the bleachers would begin and if anyone could get some photos of it. When the bleachers were redone a few off seasons ago, there...


Does anyone know anything about Jacob Turner?

Turner, the Tiger's top pitching prospect, is the biggest name I've been hearing in regards to the Matt Garza deal, which is apparently past the initial trade talk stages. I really can't find much...


Are We Still Down On the Ricketts After Theo Hiring?

It didn't happen on day one, but Tom Ricketts has done a lot for the organization as a whole, despite the product on the field not being up to par. I apologize if I leave things out, but here's...


Even A Worst Case Scenario Should Give A Little Optimism For 2012

I'm sick of reading about the idiocy and stupidity surrounding this team. I'm looking forward to September and 2012 already. Even if this team does nothing in free agency and Hendry is retained, we...

Former Cubs Notes: Aaron Heilman To Be Released


Glad we got rid of him when we did. Nobody wanted to give him a shot at starting, wonder if he'll sign on somewhere and demand a chance at it



Anyone getting the MLB App this year? I have always gotten it in years past. This year it is going to cost me $14.99 on my iPhone. I just have a hard time paying that much money for something I'm...

A Nice Interview with Sam Fuld


My buddy, who is a die-hard Rays fan, writes for Deep Dish Baseball and conducted a great interview with Sam Fuld. He had a nice little nod at the end to Cubs fans and Wrigley field. An interesting, quick read if you have the time.


Is There A "Fan Favorite" Currently On The Cubs Roster?

The Cubs roster used to be full of names we knew and loved, full of players who could do no wrong in our eyes as fans. Some of these players moved on for various reasons (Wood, Prior), some were...

OT: New Big Ten Logo


I agree with the article. Just really ugly looking, and it looks like it was thrown together in very little time. Doesn't look modern or new, which is usually the message that comes with a new logo. Not a great color scheme. No hidden #12 like with the old version. As a graphic design major, this is really a poor choice

Santo To Be At Wrigley Forever


Can't think of a better final resting place


Dear Santa

Well, it's after Halloween, so you know that it's "that time of the year". Usually I like to say this is the most wonderful time of the year: FREE AGENCY! However my loved ones are already asking...


New Cubs Jersey Suggestions

My only cubs jersey is a Kerry Wood home jersey from 8 years ago. Still fits but I'm looking for something newer. I'm open to pretty much anything. Ideally I'd like someone who will be with the...


My "Let's Look Towards 2012" 2011 Cubs Roster

It's October. So?! Never too early to start looking forward to 2011. I know this is going to be the first of hundreds, if not thousands of proposals for the roster. Heck I'll probably do another...

Fredi Gonzalez Declines Cubs Interview


Guess he's pretty much a lock for the Atlanta position. Would have been interesting seeing him here.

Some Pictures I've Taken


Got to go to a few games this year. I'm back at school now so I have posted them all. One game is at US Cellular, the game where Z left after the first inning. I tried capturing people in the crowd as much as people on the field. Let me know what you think.


Slightly OT: Chipper Jones, HOF'er?

With Jones going down for the year with a torn ACL and his career in jeopardy, one of the best switch hitter in league history might be hanging up his spikes for the last time. Always in the...


Good Place To Find Minor League Jerseys?

I'm trying to find minor league jerseys for cheap. Does anyone know of a good place to find them? I'm not having any luck on Ebay

Former Cubs News: Eric Patterson to Red Sox


Not having a great year but the Sox got him for cheap and he's only a stop gap while Pedroia is injured

Umpire Mess Up Your Perfect Game? You Get A Free Car!!!


This is absurd! And offensive. I hope Galarraga sells the car and donates the money to charity. I would rather have the perfect game

Kiko Calero Released By Mets


Lots of people (myself included) wanted Calero for this year's team once Guzman went down. If the pitching starving Mets don't want him, I don't think we do either


What To Do If Colvin Stays Hot

It might be a faux pas to put the bottom line first, but I'm doing it: Tyler Colvin needs to play more I know, that's a pretty bold statement.  Colvin has had an excellent start and hopefully it...

Got a PS3? Now You Can Get the MLB!


Seems like it might be kinda pricey, but now you can stream MLB games on your Play Station
