Ryne Sandberg

Ryne Sandberg is the greatest player to ever play second base! A nine time Gold Glover... ten time All-Star... ... eight Silver Sluggers ... and now a Hall of Famer! yne Sandberg was born in Spokane Washington on September 18, 1959. He was named after Ryne Duren, a Yankees relief...

Geovany Soto to miss a few games

Comcast SportsNet Chicago is reporting that Geovany Soto will miss the next two or three games. He strained his shoulder on Tuesday, sat out Wednesday, and saw the team doctor in Chicago today. As a follow-up, the Pirates lost today leaving the Cubs in sole possession of the NL Central...

Wire to Wire: In Danger today

One of my hopes for the Cubs' 2009 season is to go wire-to-wire in first place this year. I think it's a reasonable possibility as the Cubs are (on paper) far stronger than the rest of the division... it's also greedy as I'll get out, but hey: I don't care....

Pirates struggling to put butts in the seats

In other news, man bites dog. Ron Cook of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette writes a column bashing new Pirates President Frank Coonelly for being satisfied with progress outside of the win-column. At the end of the column, he points out that the Pirates 'progress' hasn't made it as far as the...

MLB Road Trip: Quantifying the visiting fan

As you know, the Red Sox and their legions of fans showed up at Wrigley Field this weekend. Like Cubs fans, Red Sox fans are known for traveling with their team to support their favorite players in hostile territory. Although I wasn't in attendance at any of the games, quotes...

Deconstructing the Ninth

I didn't get to see most of the game today, but I got home in-time to watch the eighth and ninth innings. And despite the totally awesome second straight come-from-behind win over the Pirates, I definitely was frustrated with some of the managerial decisions in the ninth inning. Top of...

MLB Ticket Revenues per game for 2005

For most teams in baseball, we are 20-25% of the way through the season and so I decided to capture a snap-shot of the ticket revenues per home date for each of the thirty teams. So, in true Cubdom fashion, I present these charts of team revenue per home date...

Pirate Predictions

The commenters are getting sarcastic, I'd better bear down and get these ones right. Disclaimer: The first game may have started already, but I haven't looked at the scores yet. Friday: Maddux vs. Mark Redman Saturday: Wood vs. Dave Williams Sunday: Prior vs. Josh Fogg Friday: Redman is 1-1 in...

Reviewin' & Previewin

Well, the Cubs went to PNC Park this weekend to play the Pirates. They won two of three and are back at .500. Until the next time he pitches, I've got some questions about Carlos Zambrano who has sandwiched a Cy Young caliber start in between two fairly mediocre performances....

Moanin' & Groanin'

Major League Baseball has the most ridiculous blackout rules! I live 5+ hours from Wrigley Field. I live even farther away from Pittsburgh. I paid for MLB Extra innings. I can't watch the Cubs tonight. The Cubs play the Pirates tonight at 6 P.M. It will be televised on Comcast...

Review'n & Preview'n

Its been a good weekend of baseball. As I'm sure you know, the Cubs won two of three over the Brew Crew. Kerry Wood took the mound on Friday, pitched well, but was wild. He went five and two thirds before leaving due to a high pitch count. The game...

2005 Fan Cost Index Released

Team Marketing Report released the results of the 2005 Fan Cost Index today. The results aren't necessarily a suprise, but some signficant changes are noticable. Before I get into the results, I want to provide some of my newer readers with links as background reading. I first got interested in...

Spring, the perfect time for pessimism

2004 was to 1985 as 2005 will be to? A. 1993 B. 1986 C. 1907 D. 1969 E. None of the Above The similarities between the 1985 Cubs and the 2004 team are a little scary. The 1984 team nearly went to the World Series and so did the 2003...

MoneyBall: Data Dump

Today's post is a data dump and is presented (nearly) without comment. All Major League Baseball Forbes Franchise Values 2000 - 2004 One of these is not like the other... one of these does not belong. OK, OK, I know you can't see anything with all thirty teams together so...

Kendall trade my be pre-cursor to Sosa trade

It looks like the Oakland Athletics have acquired Jason Kendall from the Pittsburgh Pirates in return for Mark Redmond and Arthur Rhodes. Although I don't think it will happen, the Pirates may wish to trade Rhodes to the Cubs for Michael Barrett. This would then free up a possible Mike...
