What is Japanese for LaBomb?

Bryan LaHair was designated for assignment today. I think we generally hoped he would have a teeny tiny bit of trade value, but maybe he didn't or maybe the Cubs thought they should do right by him and just let him go so he can pursue an opportunity elsewhere (the talks of Japan are most […]

Will Jim Deshaies Be the Replacement for Bob Brenly?

If Rant Sports can generate blog hits by using incredibly over-the-top and sometimes completely misleading headlines for their posts, then so can I. I figured it was as good a headline as any for the following shallowly researched filler material. We know Jim Deshaies, the current color commentator for the Houston Astros, got an interview […]

Have the Cubs Hit Rock Bottom Yet?

We all knew that the methods the Superfriends were employing to build up the overall strength of the entire Cubs organization was going to get ugly at the major league level. Theo and Jed came in and immediately started implementing a long term strategy, which in many cases, was very damaging to the short term […]

Bill Murray’s Video Resume for the Cubs Open TV Broadcast Position

There has been a lot of discussion on the intertubes in the last day about who can possibly replace Bob Brenly. Alvin has helpfully compiled a list of candidates from various sources and included his opinion of the probability that they are hired. You can go over to see his commentary if you want, but […]

Cubs Lower Season Ticket Costs While Mostly Raising Individual Ticket Prices

The Cubs announced their new ticket prices for 2013 and Alvin is doing a victory dance with his bologna sandwich tonight because he is getting a ~10% reduction on his seats up there in the last row of the bleachers. In fact, all season ticket holders are holding basically even or getting a slight discount […]

I Miss Schultz Already

Warning: This post barely mentions the Cubs and even then only in a tangential manner. It will also contain what I can only assume will be a nauseating amount of sentimental nonsense. Please feel free to skip straight to the comments and post inappropriate GIFs, hilarious Alvin photoshops, or even some baseball stuff. In fact, […]

It Turns Out Chet Coppock Still Exists and He Doesn’t Like Theo

Sometimes I just can't help myself. I'm a weak man. I admit it. I know I shouldn't always order my cheeseburger with bacon on it, but I do. I know I could do just as well with a single scoop of ice cream, but go ahead and eat it straight out of the container and […]

Daily Facepalm: Something I’ve Not Felt Since….

  There's been some unusual disturbances in the Force in the Cubs universe recently. Nothing on the scope of millions of voices suddenly crying out and being suddenly silenced, but more like when Luke went into that weird tree on Dagobah and you didn't know what the hell was going on. Movin' On Up The […]

Wrigley Talk Friday: OMG! WTF is NSFW FTW – 9-7-12

The latest Wrigley Talk Friday is easily in my Top 5 of all time, and I'm having a hard time thinking of any that I enjoyed more off the top of my head.  Get out the earmuffs for the kids because Adam sounded like he was working from a Tarantino script as he voiced his […]
