Happy St. Pat's Day. As in Hughes.

After the season of the Bear
There are Hawks games and Bulls games to spare
But you can't wait for the day
When you hear Pat Hughes say,
"Chicago Cubs baseball is on the air"

(Sorry if I got a little deep there.)

Happy St. Pat's, everyone!


I see Pat is wearing his away golden Hawaiian shirt with the green shamrocks and the orange sherbet pants with well ironed pleats.

Isn't everybody?

Cubs vs Rangers on MLB network...NOW!!!!!!

tmzcubreporter update...

greg maddux is getting noticably fat. it's weird.

he's always had some of the most horrible eating habits of any MLB'r, but it seems his metabolism (or workout ethic) is slowing.

...and ninja cut his 16-year-old-from-philly facial hair. derrek holland is working on year 3 of trying to grow a mustache...he's about 1/2 way there.

i cheated and looked at the box score...and i know it's spring...but casey weathers needs to find his way off the 40man roster asap...

3/11/12 Chicago Cubs outrighted Casey Weathers to Iowa Cubs.

and it was even a front-page topic post on tcr, doh...my last 2 weeks have been filled with mostly non-baseball related alcohol and sun.

any box scores(or comments) on the minor leaguers since they started games yesterday?

  • Thanks, O&B. So funny about our age. Let's just say- I have always wondered why Durocher didn't give Hundley a few days off when he had Gene Oliver and John Boccabella on the bench.

  • Strop K'ing Peralta to start the 8th, given their history -- what a fantastic moment! And Javy bouncing back -- big time -- form yesterday's games.

    Contributions from literally everyone in this series -- Soler and Schwarber were off the charts -- Miggy's pick-off was awesome.

    This team is just so much damn fun.

  • Wish I knew how to post a pic. Both CUBSTER & I in attendance. I finally feel like some demons have been vanquished, and there is some magic here.

    Joe Maddon is far and away the best manager I have seen work for my team.

  • pretty much this. also, a magician.

  • Madden brought it in some lions and sharks to Wrigley Field and let them eat people

  • What did I miss?

  • I think Strop deserves a very special mention. He had so many struggles against the Cardinals but pitched two successful and very high pressure innings the last two games against them and looked nasty doing so.

  • How about this, the Cubs are 10-1 over the last 3 weeks.

  • I was thinking about it earlier that the Cubs are 101-66 and the Cards 101-65...but, does anyone outside of the two of us ever calculate records including post season? Don't think I've seen that ever before.

  • With today's victory,  the Cubs are just 1/2 game behind (0.5 GB) the Cardinals for the best record in MLB in 2015. 

    If they win the LCS and the World Series and go no worse than 8-4 in the process, the Cubs will be World Champions AND they will have the best record in MLB in 2015 (CUBS 109-70 .6089 versus STL 101-65 .6084). 

  • Well, I can say this...Cardinals fans certainly hate the Cubs right now...about as much as Pirates fans.

    Our bullpen was friggin brilliant this series...even if their ERA doesn't look good.

  • Not sure who I want...Kershaw/Greinke is scary, but I almost worry more about the Mets ability to score in bunches like us.

    Do like the fact that if it is the Dodgers, Kershaw can't go until Game 2 and Greinke until Game 3.

  • I agree with you, but I hate them both. I hate Stephen Piscotty. I hate Tommy Pham. I hate Yadier Molina. I hate Kolten Wong. I hate Jon Jay. And that's just off the 2015 version of the Cardinals.

    Sorry, I'm a hateful person :(

  • The Cardinals themselves are fine and a tough opponent, it's really just their cocky, hick fans I can't stand.

  • I've been waiting a long time to say this... here it goes:


  • LAD/NYM going a full 5 games would rock. more rest for the cubs pitchers, less rest for theirs...

    kershaw on the mound, NYM lead the series 2-1.
