Chicago Cubs are the only non Philadelphia team I root for. Had something to do with Dallas Green bringing a lot of 1980 Phillies over to the Cubs. Including some minor leaguer named Sandberg. What ever happened to him?

The Cubs name a new manager and I hope he gets the Cubs a lot of these celebrations in the future!

This is the full WGN TV broadcast from September 24, 1984, in two parts, of the Cubs breaking through. Cubs beat the Pirates 4-1 to win the NL East to get the Cubs to the post season for the first...

Have you ever wanted a Mitchell and Ness throwback jersey but felt the price was too high? At least for the next 3 days, that won't be the case. All Mitchell and Ness jerseys are $100 from today...

The Cubs' new Theocracy

Bill Conlin's column in today's Philadelphia Daily News. Takes the usual shots at the Cubs.

Yankees playing Cubs at Wrigley Field makes for a special baseball moment of another era

27

Enough people are ripping Wrigley Field, now here is a NY writer praising it. "And yet the atmosphere was electric enough to remind me that this is what I miss about the old Yankee Stadium, days and nights when the old place shook, when the energy could take your breath away." Even a shot at Blake DeWitt in the article too. LOL

Cubs take new swing at long-stalled triangle building

I think the Cubs should worry about fixing the team on the field. I've seen a lot of people over the past few weeks comment on being an organization like the Phillies. This is how the Phillies 2010 team was built. 1996 Draft Jimmy Rollins (2nd round) 1998 Draft Ryan Madson (9th round) Amateur free agent Carlos Ruiz 2000 Draft Chase Utley (1st round) 2001 Draft Ryan Howard (5th round) 2002 Draft Cole Hamels (1st round) 2004 Draft, Rule 5 Shane Victorino (Dodgers) 2005 Free agent Antonio Bastardo (undrafted rookie) 2006 Draft Domonic Brown (20th round) Free agent Jayson Werth (Dodgers) 2007 Free agent Chad Durbin (Detroit) J.C. Romero (minor leagues) Waivers Greg Dobbs (Seattle) 2008 Trade Joe Blanton (Oakland) Brad Lidge (Houston) 2009 Free agent Raul Ibanez (Seattle) Trade Ben Francisco (Cleveland) 2010 Free agent Danys Baez (Baltimore) Jose Contreras (Colorado) Ross Gload (Florida) Placido Polanco (Detroit) Brian Schneider (Mets) Wilson Valdez (minor leagues) Trade Roy Halladay (Toronto) Roy Oswalt (Houston)

Amazing that all of a sudden, this stuff shows up on youtube. Coverage from most of the Chicago stations from that night. Al can gave you a better idea what went into this.

I was only 13 in 1989 but can someone explain to me why Jeff Pico was called on in the 9th to close this game out. He did the job, but still. It's Jeff Pico! No Mitch Williams? The celebration after win: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zwnGU7ZRoVI&feature=related When was the last time you heard about Domingo Ramos?

I'll be there Wednesday night. It's been raining all day and will rain throughout the night. If tonight's Phillies game is cancelled, guess who pitches for Phillies tomorrow night? Roy Halladay This the Pirates only trip here so they will try to get the game in.

OT: Police use Taser on fan on field at Phillies game

I'm sure a video of this will be on youtube within hours. Something for the idiots that run on the field to think about.

I guess Daley and his cronies didn't get the unmarked envelope of hundreds.

Roy Halladay to the Phillies

3 team deal. Cliff Lee goes to the Mariners.

These Cards are playing like Cubs

Are my eyes that bad or was that Soriano misplaying that ball in the 9th inning instead of Holliday?

In hindsight, Phillies lucky they didn't get Soriano
