Quick question

Been lurking here for a while and post a fair amount over at Bleed Cubbie Blue and just have a random quick question that hopefully someone can answer: When the Bears score a touchdown, they...

Cubs close to deal with Kerry Wood

Via MLB Trade Rumors. I know it's not official, but I figured it was worth posting. Hopefully they can get this done. This coming shortly after Al's open letter to TheoJed. Well timed! Get it done!

Theo Epstein "Hope" Poster

Maybe I got a little carried away. Maybe it's a little premature. Maybe it's awesome. Regardless, I made a Theo Epstein "Hope" Poster...lol. Enjoy! Or criticize. Your call. Go Cubs!

2012 Cubs Printable Schedule

5

It's a huge pet peeve of mine but I always think the Cubs do a really lousy job of making a good-looking printable schedule for fans. Last year's was really hard to read, in my opinion. Anyway, I made a new version of the printable schedule and I hope you all enjoy. If there are any corrections I need to make, please just post in the comments. I'll make adjustments for game designations and times when I need to.

Hi folks... haven't posted here in a while but I have a few questions for season ticket holders.  I know this was asked before the season and there are a lot of STH's here but I am curious as to...

Twas the Night Before Opening Day

Saw someone post something similar last year, and I hope I'm not beating anyone to it, but I hadn't seen it yet, so I figured, hey, I'll do it.   Twas the night before Opening Day, and all...

Thank you, BCB

This may sound a little corny and possibly not worthy of a fanpost, but I just wanted to thank all of you for getting me through yet another long off-season.  A special thanks to you, Al, for all...

White Sox interested in Kerry Wood

Just thought this was worth posting... I'm now going to start praying that this does not happen.

'03 Cubs Video Tribute -- Sorry, folks: I'm rolling now

8

With Lou retiring, I decided to dig through my old Cubs DVDs and found one of the last few days of the '03 season that I recorded. Here is the video tribute of the 2003 Chicago Cubs that FSN created on the clinch day of the '03 season. WARNING -- You might get a little choked up (it gets me every time). Hope YouTube doesn't take it down.

'07 Cubs Video Tribute -- The Beginning of the Piniella Era

With Lou retiring, I decided to dig through my old Cubs DVDs and found one of the last few days of the '07 season that I recorded. Here is the video tribute of the 2007 Chicago Cubs that WGN created on the last day of the '07 season. WARNING -- You might get a little choked up (it gets me every time). Hope YouTube doesn't take it down. Also...just let it run for a little bit. The first minute or so is Dan Roan reflecting. The actual video montage starts about 50 seconds in.

Joe Girardi Comments + Yankees Game Photos

Joe Girardi has been tossed into the discussion about possibly becoming the next manager of the 2011 Chicago Cubs.  This would be great, yes, but today's ballgame at Yankee Stadium solidified the...

Yankees Returning to Wrigley Field in 2011

Looks like the Cubs will battle the Yanks at the Friendly Confines for the first time since the Cubs took 2/3 from New York in 2003...I already know which Cubs series I'm making my priority next year!

This video sums up my feelings toward the 2010 Cubs thus far

The frustrating 2010 season is bugging me. June is on its way and we are struggling against the Pirates...I feel like George Knox does in this scene from Angels in the Outfield

Scenes from the 4/9/10 debacle in Cincinnati

Jim Hendry Fires Back

358

I hate to keep bringing up Milton Bradley, but when Bradley ripped the Cubs in an ESPN interview, I think it's necessary to hear the Cubs' perspective. Hendry just couldn't bite his tongue any longer after Bradley's most recent "ripping" of the Cubs.

Chicago Cubs Opening Day Starters

23

This really doesn't have much to do with anything, but it's fun to look at. With Opening Day fast approaching, I got to thinking about the last several Cubs Opening Day rosters in recent memory. Fortunately, baseball-reference.com exists (I love this site). Just remember, Cubs fans, if you aren't a fan of Carlos Zambrano starting Opening Day (which I, for one, have no problem with), it could always be worse (see 1995 Chicago Cubs Opening Day starter...yikes...although he did throw well that day).

Marlon Byrd helps out any way he can --- I love hearing stuff like this

10

Marlon Byrd is helping out the pitchers as well. He noticed that Carlos Marmol was tipping his pitches and Marmol fixed the problem. I really like Byrd's overall attitude and I think he's going to bring a lot to the Cubs this year.
