The Cubs SUCK.

July 5, 2021

That is all.

…a combined no hitter in LA (Cubs win).

June 25, 2021

https://www.espn.com/mlb/story/_/id/31704821/chicago-cubs-zach-davies-three-relievers-combine-mlb-7th-no-hitter

from the article:

“It’s the seventh no-hitter in baseball this season, the most ever before July 1 and tied for the most in a season since 1900, when the modern era began.

The twist on Thursday night’s no-hitter is that the three relievers who finished the game, after starter Zach Davies came out after six innings, didn’t know the Dodgers were hitless until after they pitched.

“The whole bullpen had no idea,” lefty Andrew Chafin said afterward. “It was completely oblivious. In our defense, from that bullpen, our perspective on the field, all we can see is like batting averages and the count and stuff like that.”

Don’t Be Cruel!

Too good to be true?

All thoughts and rants welcomed, let ‘er rip.

The Cubs (would anybody like to contribute?).

Hello, my frendts!

The Cubs have been playing better recently, which is encouraging. That said, it’s a long season.

I’ll continue to post as possible, but I haven’t been following as closely as I have in the past (mostly due to scrambling to keep afloat the past 14+ months when my income was upended due to Covid). I’ve managed to stay in the game, and now things are looking up as the work is beginning to return.

I’ll continue to post as time allows but if any of you are interested in contributing your thoughts for a new Cubs thread, please respond here and I’ll provide you with my personal email to submit your thoughts and words (not accepting prayers at this time hahaha)…unedited, of course!

FLASHBACK #1 …a walk down memory lane!

May 5, 2021

…Contreras just grounded into a DP to end the bottom of the 10th, missing a bases loaded opportunity to win the game.

So, here is an opportunity to revisit a most entertaining thread from 2008, when Fro was still a Cubs fan (!!). Big fun, ENJOY!!

Will the Cubs ever hit again?

Bryant and Baez are the only starters hitting over .185.

WTF!

That. Is. All.

Where’s Pedro?

I’m ok with this, if it happens. Not a bad move, IMOP. Thoughts?
