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...

Here's 5 reasons to stoke your Cubbie-Optimism. 5. Milton Bradley is hitting .239 and slugging .369.

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....

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...

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...

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.

A few notes: I knew the winning streak was in serious jeopardy when Brian Giles scored in the fourth. He had reached first on a single, but advanced to second on a wild pitch. Over...

I saw the game today on a widescreen HDTV... amazing. The picture was unbelievable, and the game was very enjoyable. 10-3 Cubs with lots of power, and a little shoddy Colorado defense.
