Welcome to Cubs Central!

On this site, I share what’s catching my attention in the Cubs’ system. I post thoughts about the major league club, the minors, the draft, and international free agency. My favorite aspect of the site is the baseball cards I make using old Topps frames with pictures of current players and prospects.

I also write about the Cubs’ Minor League System, International Free Agency, and the MLB Draft at Cubs Insider and on BP Wrigleyville.

Occasionally, Clark Lorensen, a former student of mine, will chime on the site from time to time.

As for me…
I teach US and World History all day at a small rural school in northern Illinois and I do this site in my spare time. I am getting close to retirement and then this will be my full-time gig. My wife is also a huge Cubs fan, too (that’s why I married her). We have 5 dogs, all rescues. I dig Rush, Pearl Jam, Foo Fighters, The Fixx, Chris Whitley, Juliana Hatfield, The Posies, and The Punch Brothers.  Don’t get me started on how many instruments I play…
