Hey, everybody, the Cubs didn’t lose yesterday! That is right. They didn’t lose yesterday. Man, what a great feeling.

Yep, that is what this season has become. I am happy because they couldn’t lose. That is awful. But we move forward because that is what Cubs fans do.

And what is the treat we get for moving forward? The Cubs get to play three straight games against the only team that is actually worse than them! Woo-hoo. Bring on Hunter Pence and Wandy Rodriguez. What a weekend at Wrigley it will be!

Cubs Thoughts, Opinions, Moods Changing Like the Weather

It’s not an off day, but it is Thursday, and the Cubs will not be playing until much later tonight, so that can only mean one thing. Well, it could mean a lot of things, but in this case it means it time to get your ramble on.

Announced this morning, the Chicago Cubs and manager Mike Quade reached agreement on a two-year contract with a club option for the 2013 season.  Quade arrived in Chicago yesterday to finalize the deal and a press conference will be held today at Wrigley Field at 3 p.m.
Quade, 53, became the 51st manager in franchise history when he took the helm on August 23 following Lou Piniella’s retirement the day before.  The 2011 campaign marks Quade’s ninth in the Cubs organization, as he served as Piniella’s third base coach for nearly four seasons starting in 2007 and was the manager of Chicago’s Triple-A Iowa team from 2003-06.

In addition to his six-week stint at the big league level this season, Quade has 17 years and 2,378 games of experience as a manager at the minor league level, compiling a career 1,213-1,165 mark (.510 winning percentage).
