The Chicago Cubs took care of business and swept the San Francisco Giants at home.
It wasn"t as pretty, or dramatic as Friday"s contest, which was admittedly one for the ages. It was a far more prosaic affair. More typical 2016 Cubs style.
Get the early lead, make some big...

Cub fans can heave a sigh of relief. This team is not only for real, they are good.
Like in damn good. They played the best game in franchise history when they needed it most, and against the best. A skilled, experienced and determined San Francisco Giant club played a superb...

WEEK 5 PREVIEW: BEARS @ COLTS
2 Wins in a Row for Da Bears?
By: Andrew Shipman
Just like that, with one win under his belt and no interceptions, Brian Hoyer is the savior of Chicago football.
At least that’s what several Bears fans might want to tell you right now. I don’t know if I buy...

In another typical AL slugfest the Cleveland Indians bested the Boston Red Sox 5-4.
Both teams hit 3 home runs apiece, and so far this postseason has been defined by the tightly wound rabbit ball that allowed more players to hit 20 home runs than any other time in history. To...

The San Francisco Giants got their nose in the tent, and a spirited Mets team wasn"t enough to stop them as they now travel to Wrigley Field to play the Cubs.
In classic Giant style, they were able to outlast the Mets. Starter Madison Bumgarner was able to keep his pitch count...

The 2016 MLB Playoffs are now on track, and first blood was drawn by the Toronto Blue Jays.
In an 11 inning affair that featured 33 strikeouts and only 3 walks, and 6 of the 7 runs scored were all via the home run, any National League aficionado would have been forgiven for ...

The rallying cry in the Ancient Olympiad was "Let the Games Begin!". So it is with MLB.
This phrase certainly comes to mind today, as the 2016 MLB Postseason begins in earnest. Tonight we are treated to the first contest, as Baltimore travels to the Rogers Center in Toronto to...

The final game is a Cubs come back win. Very nice, indeed.
It may not have been the way it was scripted, but it was the type of win they needed. Like Saturday"s game, the narrative demanded a certain outcome. That was a dominant Jon Lester victory for his 20th win.

The Cubs play their final regular season game today. But this represents the beginning, NOT the end.
For Cub fans this is a curiosity; in days past they would occasionally stumble into a post season nod by happy accident. Outside of perhaps 1984, the team was usually unprepared...

Jon Lester wanted 20 wins but just didn"t have it in him.
The Cub left hander, a strong contender for the Cy Young award had one more personal achievement.
His first 20 win season.

Ben Zobrist and his Cub teammates pounded the hapless Cincinnati Reds once again.
It"s hard to discern what is worse for the Reds, who"s pitching has been awful at historic levels this year or giving the Cubs a particular, and fairly ugly record. Would you rather have the worst...
