The CBA has been AWOL for a while, but please check out the great Cubs blogs of the Cubs Blog Army.

One of the most prolific Cubs Twitterers (tweeters?) is waxpaperbeercup, formerly of 1060 West. Along with the tremendous tweets, we also have the equally fabulous blog:

Lou Brock Fan Club asks: Soto or Hill

September 27, 2009

There's a good post over at the Lou Brock Fan Club, asking where the likes of Geovany Soto and Koyie Hill line up on the Cubs depth chart. (Link)

Phil steps back and looks at the statistical comparison between Soto and Hill and concludes:

With starts fairly evenly divided between the two men, the Cubs are a laboratory right now in the effect of catching intangibles-pitch selection and general in-game captaincy and coaching-on the outcome of a game.

It's a good read. Go read it. (Link)

Duh-de-duh, duh-de-duh!

May 29, 2009

Congratulations to Jay of Bush League Times for hitting the big-time. In case you missed it, Bush League Times was featured on ESPN's Blog Buzz on Thursday. Here's his pithy comment that elevated him, like cream, to the top.

"Now Bradley would have us believe that the umpires get together to perfect their conspiracy of a .186 hitter? Has it occurred to Bradley that maybe, as a .186 hitter, he doesn't have the unparalleled knowledge of the strike zone that he thinks he has?"

CaberLee - Derrek Lee releases Charity wine

April 6, 2009

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE -- Mark Buehrle & Derrek Lee Unveil Charity Wines


Two local baseball heroes have teamed up with Charity Wines to raise some big league dollars for some very worthy causes. The North Side will be represented by slugging first baseman Derrek Lee while the South Side will feature mainstay ace pitcher Mark Buehrle. These men join a strong group of stand-up athletes across the country to launch wine labels in the name of charity. 100% of their proceeds go directly to the charity of the player's choosing.

 - Derrek Lee's CaberLee wine benefits his 1st Touch Foundation, which creates opportunities, positive change, and hope for our youth striving to overcome challenges beyond their control.

 - Mark Buehrle's Buerhlot wine benefits the Hope Rescues animal shelter in Alton, Illinois. Mark has been active with organizations helping animals for the majority of his career and has recently become more involved with the Hope Rescues shelter.

The names CaberLee and Buehrlot are word plays on varietals Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, and are California appellations. They are expected to retail for about $13 a bottle. Both went on sale to retailers this week, and will be available to the general public beginning in June throughout the Chicago area wherever wine is sold, and online at

Bleacher Nation

March 16, 2009

Here's another new blog that got going over the offseason. If you're new to the Cubs Blogging Scene for 2009, shoot me an email and I'll plug your site!

Bleacher Nation
Hi Byron -

I wanted to let you know that I have started a new "serious" Cubs blog called Bleacher Nation ( I really enjoy doing the parody article thing at The Cubs Brickyard, but at the same time, I'm itching to do some serious articles and try out some new things that just wouldn't work at The Brickyard.

So as for what Bleacher Nation is all about...

Bleacher Nation provides "insightful, analytical, and humorous Cubs commentary." Just kidding. Yes, in large part, it'll be like most of the other Cubs blogs out there: we'll report the news, give our thoughts, try to be funny and interesting while we do it, and then show unnecessary but lovely pictures of hot chicks. Though that will be the bulk of what we do, something a little different is that we plan on also covering the "Cublogoverse," itself. So not only is Bleacher Nation the place to find news, rumors and gossip about the Cubs, it's also the place to find news, rumors and gossip about the blogs that love them.

Thanks so much for considering Bleacher Nation for inclusion in the Army (and for including The Brickyard).
