What if Bleed Cubbie Blue never existed?

I try not to spend that much of my time ripping things to pieces that Al Yellon has written.  Frankly, I just don’t have the time.  Even the shut-ins who actually frequent his site don’t have that kind of time. But sometimes, he tees one up so perfectly that I can’t resist. He did today.  It’s the 10th anniversary of bleedcubbieblue.com making Cubs fans dumber.  Congratulations, Al.  As if this fanbase needed...

Cubs host Nerdfest Q and A with Crane

Yesterday, the Cubs invited a gaggle of Cubs bloggers to sit down with Cubs Vice President for Business Mismanagement Crane Kenney.  Apparently they didn’t have postal addresses for Hire Jim Essian or me.  But, thankfully, our good friend Al Yellon did score an invite.  He filed this report: Crane Kenney Talks TV, Wrigley Project, More In Wide-Ranging Forum Nobody writes a catchier headline than our boy Al.

The State Of Being a Red-Assed Cubs Fan

There are dozens…no, probably hundreds of people who take the time to write, at least occasionally, online about the Chicago Cubs.  Some of them are entertaining, some aren’t, some are pretty good and some are terrible.  But for some reason, one stands above us all when it comes to spewing opinionated nonsense about our favorite baseball team.  It’s not just opinionated.  Hell, anybody worth reading has an opinion,...

The Cubs have never had an innovative manager?

Our buddy Al Yellon took a break from his annual vacation on Fire Island to voice his depression that Theo Epstein FAILED AGAIN and couldn’t talk Joe Girardi into dumping the New York Yankees for the Cubs.  Al says he’s going to write just a few words, but goes on for…ever, but let’s just hit the highlights. I wish Joe well — and wish him luck, too, because the Yankees seem poised to enter a decline...
