The Cubs Way

Original Synopsis

"The Cubs Way has a total of 384 pages which are papers from writer 'Tom Verducci'. The New York Times Bestseller With inside access and reporting, Sports Illustrated senior baseball writer and FOX Sports analyst Tom Verducci reveals how Theo Epstein and Joe Maddon built, led, and inspired the Chicago Cubs team that broke the longest championship drought in sports, chronicling their epic journey to become World Series champions. It took 108 years, but it really happened. The Chicago Cubs are once again World Series champions. How did a team composed of unknown, young players and supposedly washed-up veterans come together to break the Curse of the Billy Goat? Tom Verducci, twice named National Sportswriter of the Year and co-writer of The Yankee Years with Joe Torre, will have full access to team president Theo Epstein, manager Joe Maddon, and the players to tell the story of the Cubs' transformation from perennial underachievers to the best team in baseball. Beginning with Epstein's first year with the team in 2011, Verducci will show how Epstein went beyond "Moneyball" thinking to turn around the franchise. Leading the organization with a manual called "The Cubs Way," he focused on the mental side of the game as much as the physical, emphasizing chemistry as well as statistics. To accomplish his goal, Epstein needed manager Joe Maddon, an eccentric innovator, as his counterweight on the Cubs' bench. A man who encourages themed road trips and late-arrival game days to loosen up his team, Maddon mixed New Age thinking with Old School leadership to help his players find their edge. The Cubs Way takes readers behind the scenes, chronicling how key players like Rizzo, Russell, Lester, and Arrieta were deftly brought into the organization by Epstein and coached by Maddon to outperform expectations. Together, Epstein and Maddon proved that clubhouse culture is as important as on-base-percentage, and that intangible components like personality, vibe, and positive energy are necessary for a team to perform to their fullest potential. Verducci chronicles the playoff run that culminated in an instant classic Game Seven. He takes a broader look at the history of baseball in Chicago and the almost supernatural element to the team's repeated loses that kept fans suffering, but also served to strengthen their loyalty. The Cubs Way is a celebration of an iconic team and its journey to a World Championship that fans and readers will cherish for years to come. 2017-03-28 time of publication of the book, [-Crown Archetype-]"

The Cubs Win the Pennant!

Original Synopsis

"The Cubs Win the Pennant! has a total of 211 pages which are papers from writer 'John C. Skipper'. On September 29, 1945, the Chicago Cubs' fireball pitcher Paul Erickson threw a curve ball to Tommy O'Brien of the Pittsburgh Pirates with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning. O'Brien's knees buckled, as any hitter's knees would when he expects a fastball but gets a curve instead. O'Brien had reason to be surprised--it was Erickson's first curveball of the game, and some even claim that it was his first of the year. The ball crossed home plate for strike three. The Cubs won 4-3 and captured the National League championship. The Cubs' journey to the National League pennant in 1945 is detailed here. The author interviewed nine surviving members of the 1945 Cubs, including pitchers Erickson, Hank Borowy, Hank Wyse and Claude Passeau, second baseman Don Johnson, shortstop Lenny Merullo, backup catcher Dewey Williams, first baseman Phil Cavaretta, and outfielder Andy Pafko, and includes their recollections of that magical Cubs season. 2004-05-05 time of publication of the book, [-McFarland-]"

Plan

Original Synopsis

"Plan has a total of 304 pages which are papers from writer 'David Kaplan, Anthony Rizzo, Bud Selig'. On October 12, 2011, Theo Epstein became the new Chicago Cubs president of baseball operations, flipping a switch on the lovable-loser franchise and initiating a plan to accomplish in Chicago what he'd succeeded in as general manager of the Boston Red Sox: ending a World Series drought. It would require a complete team tear-down and turnover, a new farm system foundation of young talent which Epstein and Cubs GM Jed Hoyer gradually added to with gutsy trades and timely signings. After years of rebuilding, Epstein's crystalline vision has been unquestionably realized in the form of one of the most exciting and talented teams in baseball, led by heavyweights like Anthony Rizzo and Kris Bryant as well as visionaries like manager Joe Maddon. In The Plan, David Kaplan of CSN Chicago and ESPN Radio goes behind the scenes with the Cubs and their front office, walking the steps of their captivating rise to becoming 2016 World Series champions. Featuring exclusive interviews with Epstein, owner Tom Ricketts, and other team insiders, this is the definitive account of a new era on the North Side. 2017-05-01 time of publication of the book, [-Triumph Books-]"

The Chicago Tribune Book of the Chicago Cubs

Original Synopsis

"The Chicago Tribune Book of the Chicago Cubs has a total of pages which are papers from writer 'Chicago Tribune Staff'. The Chicago Tribune Book of the Chicago Cubs is a decade-by-decade look at one of baseball’s most beloved if hard-luck teams, starting with the franchise’s beginnings in 1876 as the Chicago White Stockings and ending with the triumphant 2016 World Series championship. For more than a century, the Chicago Tribune has documented every Cubs season through original reporting, photography, and box scores. For the first time, this mountain of Cubs history has been mined and curated by the paper’s sports department into a single one-of-a-kind volume. Each era in Cubs history includes its own timeline, profiles of key players and coaches, and feature stories that highlight it all, from the heavy hitters to the no-hitters to the one-hit wonders. And of course, you can’t talk about the Cubs without talking about Wrigley Field. In this book, readers will find a complete history of that most sacred of American stadiums, where Hack Wilson batted in 191 runs—still the major-league record—in 1930, where Sammy Sosa earned the moniker “Slammin’ Sammy,” and where fans congregated, even when the team was on the road, throughout its scintillating championship run. The award-winning journalists, photographers, and editors of the Chicago Tribune have produced a comprehensive collector’s item that every Cubs fan will love. 2017-04-11 time of publication of the book, [-Agate Publishing-]"

When the Cubs Won It All

Original Synopsis

"When the Cubs Won It All has a total of 234 pages which are papers from writer 'George R. Matthews'. In the fall of 1908, no one could have guessed that the Chicago Cubs, a team that had dominated the National league three straight years, would for a century be shut out in its efforts to reclaim the world championship. Stars like Frank Chance, Ed Reulbach, and Three Finger Brown were still in their prime, and the Cubs had just emerged the winner in the most remarkable pennant race in history. In the decades since, the achievement of the 1908 Cubs has been overshadowed first by the events of the season, which included the Merkle Game and a playoff that pitted two all-time great pitchers against each other, and more recently by the calendar, as the centennial anniversary of the last Cubs championship closed in. This book rescues the 1908 team from its status as footnote to baseball history, following one of the all-time great clubs on a thrilling, season-long march toward the World Series. 2009-06-15 time of publication of the book, [-McFarland-]"

Original Synopsis

"The Chicago Cubs has a total of 256 pages which are papers from writer 'Warren Brown'. -- First published in 1946, Warren Brown's history of the Cubs is one of the fifteen highly regarded team histories commissioned by G. P. Putnam's Sons in the 1940s and 1950s, most of which were written by Hall of Fame sportswriters. Brown's history begins with the founding of the National League -- with the Cubs as a charter member -- in 1876 and continues through the 1945 World Series, which the Cubs lost to the Detroit Tigers. Brown, of course, covers the Hall of Fame Cub infield of (Joe) Tinker to (Johnny) Evers to (Frank) Chance, the most memorable double-play combination in the history of baseball. Other legendary Cubs and their illustrious opponents include Grover Cleveland Alexander, Adrian C. (Cap) Anson, Phil Cavarretta, Ty Cobb, Mickey Cochrane, Rip Collins, Kiki Cuyler, Dizzy Dean, Joe DiMaggio, Jimmie Foxx, Lou Gehrig, Hank Greenberg, Charlie Grimm, Lefty Grove, Stan Hack, Gabby Hartnett, Rogers Hornsby, Pepper Martin, Babe Ruth, Tris Speaker, Pie Traynor, and Hack Wilson. In his final chapter, Brown discusses and compiles what he calls the "All-Time Chicago National League Baseball Squad", with two to five players listed for each position (more for pitchers). Brown also includes Cubs "statistical addenda", such as home run leaders, leading pitchers, World Series records, and the Cubs versus White Sox "city series" records. The book is illustrated with twenty-two photographs. 1946 time of publication of the book, [--]"

The Cubs Fan's Guide to Happiness

Original Synopsis

"The Cubs Fan's Guide to Happiness has a total of 224 pages which are papers from writer 'George Ellis'. The Chicago Cubs tradition is one built on spectacular losing streaks and even more spectacular collapses. Yet despite all the losses and disappointments, an amazing thing happens every summer at the corner of Addison and Sheffield: millions of fans flock to Wrigley Field and millions more fans across the country regularly tune in to watch Cubs games broadcast on television. Exactly why Cubs fans support their squad with such reckless abandon isn’t entirely clear—these people represent a remarkable aberration of human psychology, epitomizing the spirit and experience of dedication to a desperate cause. And the whole time, they’re oddly happy. The Cubs Fan’s Guide to Happiness reveals what makes Cubs fans tick and what keeps them happy. It explains why it’s not over until you’re mathematically eliminated, why winning really isn’t everything, and why it’s perfectly acceptable to blame all your trouble on a scapegoat—which may or may not be an actual goat. The fully revised edition also provides educational sidebars, practical applications, and true words of wisdom from celebrity Cubs fans as well as surviving the planned renovations to the product on the field and Wrigley Field itself. 2014-04-01 time of publication of the book, [-Triumph Books-]"
