Meet Ryan Dempster at D'Agostino's tonight

There's a special opportunity to meet Ryan Dempster at D'Agostino's Pizza in Wrigleyville tonight. Dempster, along with the good folks at MyWrigleyville.com are hosting a fundraiser for Dempster's Family Foundation. The Ryan and Jenny Dempster Foundation is dedicated to helping people who suffer from DiGeorge's syndrome. (You may recall the...

Cubs beat Cardinals with Aramis Ramirez walk-off home run

I had the good fortune to attend today's game with three of my friends. We had sweet seats and the weather was phenomenal, considering it is April 18th. The game itself was riveting. Ryan Dempster pitched poorly, and the Cubs were in come-from-behind mode early on... then they got the...

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....

Cubs score big for the All-star game

Your favorite Cub is in all likelihood going to represent the National League in the all-star game on July 15. Alfonso Soriano, Kosuke Fukudome, and Geovany Soto were all voted in by the fans as starters for the game. Ryan Dempster, Kerry Wood, and Aramis Ramirez were all selected by...

From the Mailbag

I got some 'fan mail' yesterday. It must be hard to have a site like that when the cubs stink so bad. Go astros. Bye. Now, I wouldn't normally publish unsigned fan mail... but this one cut to the bone. No, I haven't given up on the site... I'm just...

A win is a win

This afternoon, the Cubs defeated the Red Sox for the second consecutive. As it turns out, most of the country was unable to watch the game because Fox decided that fans elsewhere were more interested in the Cardinals/Yankees or A's/Braves. Fortunately for me, the Indianapolis affiliate aired the Cubs game...

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...

Ballpark Travels Pictorial

The Cubs are killing me and I'm having a tough time translating my mental anguish and emotional uncertainty into some kind of unique post. I could rant and rave about Zambrano or Enrique Wilson, or whatever, but I'll leave that up to the other 70-odd CBA blogs. Instead, we're going...


Rickey Henderson is back in baseball! Granted, its the A-level San Diego Surf-Dawgs... but the man of steal is back doing what he loves. Excerpt from: Henderson signs contract to play in Class-A level by: ESPN.com News Services, May 9, 2005 Henderson, a future Hall of Famer, has signed a...

Wood to miss three weeks

This story, saying Wood will be out three weeks, came across the AP wires about 17 minutes ago: AP Wire Story: "Wood out at least 3 weeks" Associated Press, May 2, 2005 Cubs ace Kerry Wood will miss at least three weeks after tests Monday showed he has a muscle...

I hate final exams

Its that time of the year again for me. My first final is tomorrow at 1, and the horror stretches a week. Fortunately, I'll only have this experience once more. So what am I doing with 23 hours to go before my first exam that I'm not prepared for? Why,...

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...

Vine Line Tid-bits, March 2005

This month's Vine Line came in the mail a while back. So, having had an opportunity to sit down and read it, it is time to extract the tid-bits. The cover this month has a picture of Sammy Sosa in the shadows, holding a bat by his leg while looking...

Cubs Offseason Transactions Recap

We're all intimately familiar with what happened this offseason for the Cubs, but even a quiet off-season contains lots of news. So with pitchers and catchers reporting next week, a quick Cliff's notes recap of the Cubs offseason transactions from this year. The Cliffs Notes - Players October 30: Exercised...

Vine-Line Tid-bits, January 2005

The Vine-Line came while I was gone over Christmas, and I'm just getting around to reading it. There are some good tid-bits in this month's issue. The cover has a black and white photograph of Phil Cavarretta. The hadline says '60 Years Later, 1945 MVP Phil Cavarretta recalls the Cubs'...

Vine-Line Tid-bits, October 2004

This should have been "Vine-Line Tid-bits, November 2004 The Chicago National League Ball Club, inc. (a.k.a Chicago Cubs) publishes a monthly magazine named "Vine-Line." On the average, the magazine is a waste of money for subscribers, who are typically treated to articles with little substance, written by authors dependent on...


Resume: I have always been a fan of the word resume. Multiple meanings, one word... you know the drill. For instance: The Cubs resume their schedule this week after taking four days off for a Hurricane. Or... I prepared my resume while waiting for the Cubs to resume their schedule......


I will be in LA for the next two weeks. (And yes, I will be visiting Chavez Ravine!) Sorry for the inconvenience. Check out The Cub Reporter in the mean time... I got to go to this game, or most of it. I woke up early and drove in to...

Prior Watch concludes

Mark Prior is pitching tommorrow. Mark Prior is pitching tommorrow. Mark Prior is pitching tommorrow. Click your heels like Ron Santo, swish, swish, swish, swirl, swirl, swirl, getting dizzy... poof you are back at Wrigley in the warm sunshine with number 22 on the mound. Do you feel fulfilled? Has...
