CHC Thread | 15 Games Over .500 | MIL (Garza) @ CHC (Hammel) - The Sad Banana
Let's talk about some amazing stuff. First, the Cubs had gotten the Brewers pitching to throw over 100 pitches before they even got an out in the 4th inning. The Cubs walked 6 times into the 4th inning. The Cubs, by all intents and purposes, should have won that game 10-3. Kris Bryant and Miguel Mon...

CHC Thread | Bryant Boo-Boo, I'm on Suicide Watch | CHC (Lester) @ PIT (Liriano) - The Sad Banana
The Cubs are 10 games over .500 for the first time since...I have no idea. They just took five straight games, and got out of Milwaukee with a four game sweep of the Brewers (Why don't they just adopt the old "mb" glove logo and pinstripes? The current uniforms are pitiful.) Did your heart stop y...

CHC Thread | Trade Deadline Day! | CHC (Hammel) @ MIL (Jungmann) - The Sad Banana
I don't have much to write today and that's probably doing everyone a favor here. Rizzo smoked a HR last night, thank God. Schwarber with some nice timely hitting (what is that like, anyway?) to get an insurance run and Rondon nails it down in the 9th. Huge day today. Will the Cubs add pieces? Wi...

CHC Thread | Soler Back, Coghlan Leads Off | STL (Lackey) vs CHC (Lester) - The Sad Banana
The Cubs have four games against the Cardinals in three days. Lester tonight, Arrieta and possibly Beeler in tomorrow's double header, and finally it looks like Hammel in the finale. The Cubs are 44-36, 8.5 back of the Cardinals and 2.5 back of the Pirates. After being swept by the Cards in June,...

CHC Thread | Javy to Arizona to Rehab | LAD (Bolsinger) @ CHC (Hendricks) - The Sad Banana
Lots of good news to share. First, the Cubs are 39-30. That's the first time they've been 9 games better than .500 since 2009. When is the last time we can remember them being .500 at all other than Opening Day? Tsuyoshi Wada threw yesterday with minimal pain, so he may not miss a start. Dexte...

Pitch Perfect 2 was just okay...(NO SPOILERS) - The Sad Banana
First off, I'm an unabashed lover and enthusiast of Pitch Perfect. I thought it was a great original idea and it was executed perfectly. The music, the singing, the comedy...it was a pretty solid, hooking and addictive movie. I saw the original at least a thousand times on HBO. It figures they'd ...
