25 man roster- Each player won a game

It's been said that the Cubs don't truly have an MVP on the team because everyone has contributed equally.  Others say Soto should be in the running for MVP which I can agree with.  It would be...

Cubs clinching videos (safe to ask at Magic #2)

Last year I made a post at Magic #2 as well about this.  I live in NY and will not get any access to WGN or CSN post clinching celebrations in the clubhouse.  Last year there were a few members on...

Bad calls/plays and affects on the pitcher

Think we had a long day? Look at the Cardinals

Anyone who watched the Cardinals/Pirates game tonight like I did was probably shocked. The Cardinals were up 10-6 in the 9th inning.  Needless to say they gave up 6 runs to go to extras.  The...

What would you like today? I'll have another heart attack please.

The 2008 Cubs with 20 wins over .500 have certainly had their memorable games this year so far.  I think of this season in a sense is an extension of the 2007 season.  For example The Cubs found...
