Happy 4th of July, Cub Fans.

I'm in a cabin in the Great North Woods.
There's wifi at a nearby lodge, but it's kind of a hike.
But the really cool thing is... AM radio at night.
You can hear stations from other states.
Like AM 670.
It's magic.
One time someone explained to me why AM radio works like that, but I can't remember the deets.
Anyway, last night the game FINALLY came in.
Kinda scratchy and broken up, but... THERE'S PAT HUGHES!
I got to hear the bottom of the 9th.
Thus the gif. 
Happy 4th, everyone.

And remember, it HAS to get better.
Now go back to Charlie's post, because I stepped on it (SORRY)!

Anywhere near Grand Marais, MN? I-Cubs are 31-14 away from home & 18-23 @ Principal Park. Is there a better road record in all of baseball this summer? Sure beats the sheet outta the C-Cub roadshow...

Well done sir!!! Happy Fourth to all

Happy 4th to you all.

    Lots of games where they failed to add on.

    Lots of games Strop has single handedly blown, too.

    There are so many candidates. The early season losing streak comes painfully to mind.

    JHey's swing looks like it slipped into groundout mode. That Nico lineout was heartbreaking. :(

    Threw Vanmeter a curve and changeup that both looked great on TV, though Vanmeter didn't offer.

    First thing I'll point to, depending on the final order of finish, is the fact that, for the second year in a row we took the lead off of Hader in the 8th inning of a key late-season game @ Milwaukee & couldn't keep it. The second thing will be the game we led 5-0 after 7 & managed to lose. Nats next face Marlins. Cards come to town licking their chops/beaks to finish us off...

    They’re toast. Can’t finish games, can’t finish series, and it looks very much like they won’t finish this season.

    The Cubbies are in a tough situation. If they make the playoffs, they will have earned it!. Enjoy the ride folks.

    Reds win season series 11-8 - possibly the first thing you point to should the Cubs miss the post season

    Long looking swing for JHey ... and Nico - oof

    Heard Len say Descalso’s name and about had a heart attack. Then heard him say “pinch runner” and settled down a bit

    Contreras's receiving didn't do Norwood any favors in that Vanmeter at-bat. And Norwood needed some favors.

    Gotta do better than three hits in nine innings in a start by Mahle - this one is on the bats

    4th pitcher of the inning coming in...neat
