Chicago Cubs

On the morning of January 19th, I started collecting links – as many as I can find with minimal effort – that discuss the Albert Pujols contract discussions. Why? Who knows, yet here they are. Oh, and to serve you all, our three loyal readers! The Daily Pujols certainly won’t be a comprehensive list, but between local, [...]

We Are All Steve Bartman

Each and every single one of us has done at least 1 thing in our lives that we’ve almost immediately regretted doing, and we’ve been mildly embarrassed at a minimum or brutally ashamed and guilt-ridden at a maximum.  Maybe we’ve offended someone by speaking too loudly at a dinner party about the host’s over-exuberant use [...]

So much for the storybook ending, but St. Louis can write a new finish to 2011 with the help of their long-time rivals. The Cubs travel to Busch for three of the most important games in recent memory with only one club feeling the heat. Chicago most recently dispatched the Brewers 2 out of 3 [...]

After another gut-punch loss where the Cardinals were seemingly cruising only to run into THAT BIG INNING again, I think it’s time to acknowledge there is a problem. The Cardinals have allowed five or more runs in one inning fourteen times this season, including last night’s fifth inning from Chris Carpenter. In terms of ranking [...]

I sincerely apologize to our 3 loyal readers for the delay in publishing this edition of “Not The News”, but there were some unavoidable delays outside of my control.  News of the Cubs basebrawl was not accompanied by any video evidence, so I had to work late into the night to track down at least [...]

I know, I know – that’s happened a lot more often than just two years ago… *rimshot* Two years ago is when some motivated individual stomped out the words “CUBS SUCK” in the snow at the Ballpark Village site.

Big Walls and Faulty Logic

by on December 6, 2010 · 0 comments

After the news broke that the Padres and Red Sox had worked out a trade involving Adrian Gonzalez, I could’ve sworn I heard a collective sigh from Cardinal Nation.  The commonly held belief is that since the Red Sox now have a stud first baseman, they will no longer be interested in Pujols when he [...]

Ron Santo and the HOF

This isn’t a snarky post about the Cubs, and I hope that everybody understands that my snide remarks are all in fun (except maybe for the ones about Zambrano).  I do have an appreciation for the rivalry’s history, and I rank it right up there with Celtics – Lakers, Coke – Pepsi, ND – USC, and Red [...]

If you only look at the 75-87 record for 2010, the Cubs look a lot like…well, the Cubs.  To make matters worse, they don’t have a lot of flexibility going forward into 2011, because they are burdened with some horrific contracts.  Alfonso Soriano ($18M), Carlos Zambrano ($17.875M), Kosuke Fukudome ($13.5M), Carlos Silva ($11.5M), Ryan Dempster ($13.5M), [...]
