Congrats to the Chicago Cubs, from a Dodgers Fan

The LMBF Civil War ended last night in bloody fashion, as the best regular-season pitcher of this generation failed to change his postseason narrative yet again. The Game 6 loss doesn’t fall squarely on Clayton Kershaw’s shoulders, however, as sloppy defense and baserunning and a lack of offensive production culminated in one of Los Angeles’ worst games of the season at the most inopportune of times. And just like that, my ticket to Game 4 of the World Series in L.A. was swiftly refunded… The Cubs have returned to the Fall Classic for the first time in 71 years,...

During a pitching change, FS1 aired a clip stating that Alex Gonzalez (NOT Dodgers’ 1B Adrian Gonzalez) was the next scheduled batter. Cubs’ fans know Alex Gonzalez all too well, as the shortstop committed an infamous error in Game 6 of the 2003 NLCS, leading to an 8-run inning for the Marlins and an eventual series loss for the North Siders. It appears that FS1 is attempting to troll the Wrigley faithful…or is the curse at play once again? Share this:PrintTweetEmailLike this:Like...

LMBF Civil War: Episode 1

Alright, Cubs fans, you won Game 1. After the Dodgers tied it up at 3-3 in the top of the 8th off the hardest thrower in baseball, Joe Blanton decided to self-destruct. (I also blame Nick Anton, the Cubs’ secret weapon.) Too many hanging sliders, too many exuberant Cubs fans in the bar where Brian, Pete, and I watched the game. In a game where both teams proved their resiliency, the Cubs simply executed better in a critical moment of the game. That’s all it took to give Chicago a Game 1 victory. 3-time Cy Young winner Clayton Kershaw...

Thank You, Vin

“It’s time for Dodger baseball! Hi, everybody, and a very pleasant good evening to you, wherever you may be.” Do you remember your grandpa’s voice? If you’re fortunate to still have a grandfather who’s alive, take a moment and call him. Whether the voice that comes through the other end of the line is raspy or deep, crystal clear or slightly jumbled, you can immediately picture countless memories of times spent with your family patriarch as soon as his first words hit your ears. It’s truly amazing how the human mind can so quickly turn the audible into the...

Rest in Peace, Jose Fernandez

The U.S. Coast Guard has confirmed that Marlins’ ace Jose Fernandez was one of three people killed in a boating accident off Miami Beach early Sunday morning. Fernandez was only 24 years old. Fernandez was originally scheduled to start today against the Braves, before his start was pushed back to tomorrow to make room for fellow pitcher Adam Conley. The Marlins have cancelled today’s game. One of the most exciting pitchers in baseball, the young superstar was entering the prime of his life. A Cuban native, Fernandez settled in Tampa Bay in 2008 and became a U.S. citizen last...
