The math is in, and the Cubs are out. Yet another season (#101) comes to an end without a World Series title, and even though it's been a mathematical improbability for about a month, tonight's Rockies win makes it impossible for the Cubs to reach...

My criteria is to look at stats, but sometimes disregard the stats if I am a big fan of a particular player. So, for 2009, here's my ASG ballot.

The Hurricane in Texas tossed the Cubs-Astros series into upheaval. MLB moved the games to Milwaukee.

Cop out? you bet. Here's why. The Cubs are focused short term, the A's are focused longer term. One of the unfortunate by-products of...

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...

However, with the injuries to Alfonso Soriano and Carlos Zambrano, the team is beginning to feel the effect of over one fourth of...

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.

When the offense only musters four hits and two runs against the Brewers, but you hoist the win flag nonetheless, something has broken in your favor.

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...

I just got finished watching the Cubs squeak out a 2-1 win in Los Angeles... and what a pitcher's duel it was. Carlos Zambrano pitched eight innings, allowed only one hit (a bloop double that Jason Dubois possibly could have caught) and one run. Although it took ten...

Perfect weather for a game, and fortune smiled down upon me. In February, I bought tickets to a game in May. It was one of the only games that still had bleacher seats available, and so I snapped them up with no guarantee that I would actually...

Well, I'm figuring if Carlos spends all that time surfing, he must be visiting here or GROTA on a regular basis. Afterall, I/we are his biggest fans! Anyhow, this story is the very definition...

I predicted a series split with the Cardinals, but got both games wrong. I also missed on Monday, and last Friday. So, I guess that makes my predictive powers 3 for seven this week.

They won two of three and are back at .500.

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...

So, to get prepared and know what to expect, I had a friendly chat with Jeff of Brew Crew Ball, the excellent Brewers blog on the Sportsblog network.
