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...


Elton John, Billy Joel, and Dave Matthews to play Wrigley in 2010

Alderman Tom Tunney continues to devastate true Cubs fans at every opportunity. From today's Sun-Times, we learn that Elton John and Billy Joel will be playing concerts at Wrigley Field during the week of July 7, and then Dave Matthews will be playing in September. We have now gone from...


Air, Water, and the Cubs

The annual Air and Water Show is in town this weekend, and so are the Cubs, so it was with a pronounced eye-roll that I read Dave van Dyck's article in the Trib. Air Show jets spook players at Wrigley A squadron of jets sent a jolt through players and...


Oh, that crazy Milton Bradley!

I played hooky from work yesterday and went to watch the Cubs game at Wrigley Done Right. (See my review of Wrigley Done Right.) My friend, a Twins fan and a teacher, had not been up to a rooftop yet, so we celebrated the end of his school year with...


Let's all pile on Milton!

Torii Hunter, one of my favorite players, won't even consider playing for the Cubs. He's heard the stories from former teammates LaTroy Hawkins and Jacque Jones. The Wrigley faithful are racist, you'll get hate mail, it's almost as bad as Boston, etc., etc. The thing that never gets reported is...


What happened to the Budweiser Building?

If you're like me, opening day is always terrific. This year, I played hooky from work and spent mine watching the game from the Wrigley Done Right rooftop across the street. In between burgers, brats, beer, and women (who am I kidding?), my friend and I watched Ted Lilly take...


Lou Gehrig Day at Wrigley Field

From the mailbag: Catch the Chicago Cubs Take on the Cincinnati Reds at the Les Turner ALS Foundation's 15th Annual Lou Gehrig Day at Wrigley Field Don't miss the excitement at the Les Turner ALS Foundation's 15th Annual Lou Gehrig Day at Wrigley Field on Sunday, July 26. The event...


Derrek Lee Season Preview

This was originally posted as part of the Goat Riders 2009 Season Preview series. The Cubs wrap up spring training in the very near future (officially Thursday, but functionally Saturday), and no where on the diamond has the team shown more promise than first base. Their star first baseman has...


Watch the Winter Classic from a Wrigley Rooftop

The city of Chicago and the Wrigley Field Rooftops have come to an agreement and the Rooftop companies are now selling tickets for the Winter Classic. The January 1st matchup, between the Detroit Red Wings and the Chicago Blackhawks has been a hot ticket for months. If you're interested in...


Sandberg movin' on up

Ryne Sandberg will coach the AA Tennessee Smokies in 2009. After two successful seasons as the Peoria Chiefs A-Ball manager, Sandberg's desire to move closer to the bigs was granted by the Cubs organization. Sandberg had asked for the promotion following the 2007 season, but was asked to stay in...


Hawks vs. Red Wings at Wrigley Field

From Ed Sherman's Business of Sports blog at Crains, here's an artists rendition of what Wrigley Field will look like for the New Years Winter Classic game at Wrigley. Excerpt from post:The rink is going to be situated from first to third, and there will be lines showing the exact...


Let's Go To Wrigley

A friend passed along this new catchy Cubs song. A little country... but I like country. One quibble: The lyric about going back to 1908 has no place in a song called "Let's Go to Wrigley." As all fans should remember, Wrigley wasn't built until 1914 and the Cubs didn't...


Wrigley Field bike check review

Tired of paying for parking at the Cubs game? Need some extra funds to afford those Cubs tickets? Dating someone with 'Green Peace' tattooed on their ass? Then, the Wrigley Field Bike Check is your answer. For Cubs fans, there is a wide variety of transportation options for arriving at...


Cubs interested in Raul Ibanez

Gordon Wittenmeyer is reporting that the Cubs are interested in Raul Ibanez, but are balking at the Mariners high expectations for the left handed hitting outfielder. I am happy to see the Cubs exploring this option. Ibanez would most likely move from left field (where he has appeared 105 times...


Blackhawks to play at Wrigley Field

I am still in Rio, but in my limited internet time, I found a link to this story which extensively quotes some of the Chicago dailies with regard to the Blackhawks game that will be played at Wrigley Field this winter. More on this later, obviously. LINK...


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...


Cubs and Budweiser renew their vows

The Cubs and Anheuser Busch have extended their marketing agreement through 2013. Very little has changed, except that A-B has purchased the naming rights to the Batter's Eye suite in centerfield. (No announcement has been made whether it will be the Bud-Lite batter's eye, the Budweiser batter's eye, or the...


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...


Recycling the empties at Wrigley Field

Have you ever wondered what the Cubs do with all those empty beer cans after a game? Me neither... but I was waiting in line for day-of-game Cubs/Sox tickets yesterday and a truck from Bucktown Recycling pulled up to the gate. (The gate by the Harry Caray statue, I think...


TribCo Revenue Grab: Revenue Estimate for The Sandberg Game 2

Ryno's coming to Wrigley Field in July. I've already examined how this came about, now let's whip out our calculators (or Excel spreadsheets as the case may be.) and see if we can't get an estimate of the increased revenue to the ball club. For this exercise, I used my...
