    BORED OF ELECTIONS. Over enthusiastic fans have voted #Cubs ball boy Connor Hobbs into the MLB All-Star game. The seventh grader will be stationed along the right field wall at Petco Park next Tuesday. The flight to San Diego will mark his first time on an airplane, during which he hopes to watch a movie about gladiators.

  3. The ’67 Cubs Took First Today

    Leave a Comment

    On this day in 1967, the “Lovable Losers” took their first step toward respectability on a crazy Sunday afternoon at #WrigleyField when the crowd wouldn’t leave. The #Cubs got a 3-hitter from Fergie Jenkins, who had a double, triple and RBI to beat the #Reds. Their win put them in the win column for the 13th time in 14 games and in first place that late in the season for the first time since 1945. The crowd wouldn’t budge until the grounds crew changed the center field standings flags and put the Cubs on top.

  4. TOMMY LA STELLA TATTOO’S JAKE ARRIETA

    TATS ENTERTAINMENT.
    A couple of friendly wagers between teammates on the outcome of the College World Series games turned ugly this weekend.  Jake Arrieta’s alma mater, the #TCU Horned Frogs, tangled
    with Tommy La Stella’s school, the Coastal Carolina Chanticleers who were victorious in a pair of games this week, ousting Arrieta’s former squad. As the loser, Arrieta will get a Coastal Carolina tattoo. TCU did take one game earlier in the week, meaning La Stella will have to dress up as TCU’s mascot, Super Frog.

    RIGHTING THE SHIP
    Arrieta takes the mound Monday in Cincinnati and is 4-2 with a 2.81 ERA in six career starts against the Reds. Including his no-hitter just over two months ago. Cincinnati, which has been outscored by Chicago 60-20 this season, ended a four-game losing streak with Sunday’s 3-0 home win against San Diego, and tries its luck in the opener with RHP Dan Straily, who got the start in the Reds’ only win over the Cubs in 2016 – a 13-5 rout two days after Arrieta’s no-hitter.

    THE CUBS ARE NOW 4-5 ON SUNDAYS. While Jake came up short, apparently his mojo assisted the Golden State Warriors in their 110-77 blowout over the Cleveland Cavaliers in the NBA Finals Sunday.
