The Cubs are 46 games into the season, just past the 1/4 mark, so it seems as good a time as any to reflect on the past two months of games.  The season started with the Cubs setting a record for mediocrity, which is odd even for the Cubs.  During the first two weeks of the season the Cubs hit records of 1-1, 2-2, 3-3, 4-4, 5-5, 6-6, 7-7, 8-8, 9-9, and 10-10 before hitting a four game loosing streak.  Today they sit in 4th place in the Central Division, 7 games out.

A couple of days late, but “better late than never”. As they say. And if there is any place where the cliche is ingrained in it’s essence, well it’s Baseball or nothing.

Wait Til Next Year

Wait Til Next Year

“Wait Till Next Year,” a mainstay of us Cub fans, is on hold for at least a little while. And After a shaky game and a half, the Cubs are sitting pretty at 1-1, so hope is still alive! » Read the rest of this entry «
