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, […]

Random Facepalm (10-4): Thank the Good Lord That’s Over

The Cubs' season has mercifully ended and now things get interesting again as Theo continues his overhaul of the entire organization. All Coaches Returning Next Year, Please Step Forward. Not So Fast, Pat… The strains of the final playing of "Go Cubs Go" were still echoing in the park when the team announced Pat Listach […]

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 […]

Getting to Know: Jason Berken

Name: Jason Berken Position: Starting Pitcher Bats/Throws: Right/Right Current Age: 28 Uniform Number: 57 Who is this fucking guy? He's a former sixth round pick of the Orioles (2006). He got a chance to start for them in 2009 and sucked. He was part of their bullpen in 2010 and wasn't too bad. Then he went back to […]

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 […]

A Sign of Progress?

Adam Greenberg will not get his desired one at-bat as a member of the Chicago Cubs. As Paul Sullivan reports in the Trib, if he bats anywhere in the majors, it will have to be with a team that is not the Cubs. Jed Hoyer made it pretty clear he was not interested: “Adam made […]

Because We Have To

The winner of the Obstructed View Unofficially Official 2013 Chicago Cubs Slogan* Contest has been chosen. There were so many great entries, in a way you are all winners, but in a more accurate way, there was only the one winner.  By virtue of a plurality of the popular vote by our readers (and possibly […]

Brenly Nearing Broadcasting Free Agency; Kerry Wood Coincidentally Available

Bruce Levine writes today that Bob Brenly's contract with WGN TV is up after this season and hypothesizes that he would be quite popular if he reaches the free agent market in the offseason. One viable options for Brenly could be a spot calling Arizona Diamondbacks games. Brenly, a fan favorite who managed the Diamondbacks […]

Sox Fans Are Weird

I'll never understand how Cubs fans and White Sox fans can technically be from the same city.  Last night, the Sox had Chris Sale taking the mound as they went for the first sweep of the New York Yankees at home in 21 years.  26,319 people showed up to watch that. That's less than 65% […]

The Rise and Fall of the Dempster Trade

The Ryan Dempster saga seems like it has been going on longer than it took for the Ricketts to complete the transaction to acquire the Cubs, but it's all only a little over 24 hours old. I'll see if I can sum this up as succinctly as I can, though I'm sure I will miss […]
