Missing the thrill of “Cubtober”

By: Alex Patt To quote Green Day, “Wake me up when September ends.” That is how I feel when it comes to the Chicago Cubs 2021 season. For the first time since 2014, the Cubs will finish with a losing record and will miss the postseason for the second time in the past three years.Continue reading “Missing the thrill of “Cubtober””

Cubs fans, we have to stay strong

By: Alex Patt Let’s be real, this is a tough time to be a Cubs fan. The team has been dismantled and what is left is mostly unrecognizable to the average baseball fan. Willson Contreras, Kyle Hendricks, Jason Heyward and the empty shell of Jake Arrieta are all that remain from the team that endedContinue reading “Cubs fans, we have to stay strong”

This week felt like the end of this era of Chicago Cubs baseball

The Cubs should give Ben Zobrist the send-off he deserves

By: Alex Patt It is really heartbreaking to see what former Cubs, Rays, Royals and A’s star Ben Zobrist has gone through in his personal life. Zobrist is clearly having a tough time dealing with it all, and he deserves so much better in life. By all accounts it seems like he is a reallyContinue reading “The Cubs should give Ben Zobrist the send-off he deserves”

Wrigley Field this past weekend was great for our spirits and provided valuable lessons

By: Alex Patt The COVID-19 pandemic has been tough for all of us, and as a society we have been starved to get back to normal safely. This past weekend we saw the city open back up fully and Wrigley Field allowing 100% capacity in the stands. What a weekend it was for the ChicagoContinue reading “Wrigley Field this past weekend was great for our spirits and provided valuable lessons”

I just need to rant about the Chicago Cubs…

[Warning: Takes on here can come off as overreacting or bold statements, but I am going to share anyway.] Trying to be rational about this team gets harder and harder by the day. At this point it feels like being rational is just admitting the “Golden Days” of the Chicago Cubs are gone. I trulyContinue reading “I just need to rant about the Chicago Cubs…”

Returning to Wrigley Field was amazing

By: Alex Patt On April 4th, 2021 I did something I had not done in over a year…attend a Cubs game at Wrigley Field. Normally I go to roughly 3-6 games a season, but the COVID pandemic had kept myself and everyone else from attending games at the Friendly Confines in 2020. The last gameContinue reading “Returning to Wrigley Field was amazing”

Why this Chicago Cubs season will be emotional for me

By: Alex Patt The 2021 Chicago Cubs season will begin in less than two weeks, and for the first time a key member of my family won’t be around to watch it. My grandmother, one of the biggest Cubs fans ever, passed away on January 2nd after battling many health issues. For the first timeContinue reading “Why this Chicago Cubs season will be emotional for me”

Alternate History Story: The 2003 World Series Champion Chicago Cubs

My detailed thoughts on the 2021 Chicago Cubs

By: Alex Patt While I battle the snow and cold of Chicago, Cubs pitchers and catchers are reporting to the sunny and warm baseball facilities in Mesa, Arizona. It is time to get 2021 baseball activities under way. No matter what year it is, the fresh start to a new season always feels good. TheContinue reading “My detailed thoughts on the 2021 Chicago Cubs”
