I was working as usual. Got a text from my cousin John: "Uh oh" That's not a good text from him. "I'm not watching, what happened?" I reply kind of quickly. "Hammel pulled a hammy." HAMMEL'S GOT A HAMMY! So... Continue reading

I think there's a world of people who agree with you there, Rich. And yeah, just fun to watch Kyle.

Eric! Boggs is such an interesting character. But by far the most interesting baseball is being played at Wrigley Field! What a homestand. How bout a sweep today!

At the end, both Len and Bob were saying how much fun this one was to watch. And it was. Kyle Hendricks going 9 innings of (shoulda-been) shutout ball, with the wind blowing out and all his pitches working. Remember... Continue reading

Despite the couple rain delays, yesterday's W over the Phils had soooo many awesome things happen. The coolest of course was home run #100 for David Ross, a 410 footer off the Nuveen sign in the 4th. Which came shortly... Continue reading

Of course I was working, but had the radio on some. When Kris Bryant hit his 6th inning 3-run homer, Pat chose the word "towering". (I know because when he hit it, I turned it up way loud so Jason... Continue reading

I'm so jealous you got to watch. I heard some on the radio including that last inning. I wasn't very comfy, I gotta admit. But now? Hell brother it's Memorial Day Weekend!!!!

If a Cub Fan were so inclined, he or she could have easily turned off the tv after the first half of inning number one, confident in a Cubs Victory. But watching the Cardinals get pummeled by our favorite team... Continue reading

I've been too busy to even keep up with the Cubs. Thanks for the good news on the Blues, Eric.

Kevin, I'm halfway thru the article. Makes you pull for these guys even more, if that's possible. And Donna, yeah. Not to worry. I blew off some steam last night with a little ink splattering. Felt better.

Well, that was unpleasant. At the end, at least. John Lackey was in the process of owning his old team, and the Cubs had done enough to win this 1st game of the 2nd series with the Cardinals. And while... Continue reading

Good morning Cub Fans. I'm slammed. Did this painting awhile back. What do you think about when you're waiting to go finish a no-hitter the 9th? Well, from my experience ummm.... no idea. Gotta run, but just one thing. Did... Continue reading

I haven't even read the recap, Donna. Just busy. But I'll take the W!

Ahhhhhhh. That's better. We've been waiting for Jason Heyward's 1st homer long enough for it to be a minor concern. Like the White Sox, or the beginning of a pimple. But it finally cleared up in the 9th inning at... Continue reading

Rich! My head hurts after that one. You may be right, but as soon as I leave this page I'm going to try and forget what you said. No offense. It just will make my life more bearable ;)

That’s a pretty serious look, isn’t it? If you’re up to bat against Jake Arrieta, what would you be thinking? Is he dismissing me? Am I just meat? Does he know what I’m guessing? That I’m FREAKED OUT? I mean,... Continue reading

Sorry. I'm 12. Awhile back, I was listening to the Cubs on the radio, and Anthony Rizzo came up and smacked his second homer. And Pat Hughes said (I'm 99% sure I'm quoting): "Rizzo's got two long balls..." Sorry man,... Continue reading

Kind of a crap result vs San Diego. I still hate Garvey.

Hi Kevin. Well he sure surprised everybody with that bunt, that's for sure. I'm so sad for Schwarber this year. Figuring out where he'll fit next year is kinda tough, because the infield is better with Baez at 3rd. Ahhh, I'll worry about that later.
