Cubs 4, Pirates 5 (4/11/14)

Did the Cubs Win? OSS: James Russell marches onwards towards his ignominious release. Three Up 1. Starlin Castro continues his hot start to the season with a 3 single day. He scored a run and hand an RBI. 2. Travis Wood deserved the win here, but we’ll get to that later. He allowed 1 run […]

Cubs 7, Pirates 5 (4/9/14)

OSS: Twin Towers Topple Tons of Tiny Traducer Taters Three Five Up 1. Junior Lake wanted more playing time. After a conservatively-estimated 800-foot blast onto whatever street comes after Waveland, he just might get it. Sure, he didn’t have the most totally productive day, but if you hit a ball as far as Lake did, it’s […]

Belated game thread: Cubs at Cardinals and a piece of history

Yesterday marked the 100 year anniversary of the last game that Joe Tinker, Johnny Evers, and Frank Chance played together. In memoriam: Baseball's Sad Lexicon These […]
