And that universe is so wonderfully captured in WAITING IN LINE 3D!

Hi Colin! I kept imagining how much more awesome the game would be with "Go Cubs Go" as the soundtrack.

Welcome Themillhah! No. I work at an ad agency, and some of the digital guys showed me "Watiing" last night. When I first punched myself in the face, I fell out of my chair laughing. I understand there's a whole subculture of games designed to be a crappy experience. I'll hunt down "bus"...

Ahhh God! Getting swept by the Yankees in one day sure sucks. The Cubs haven't won a series in forever. When will we be set free? Nobody knows, but here's something you can do in the meantime. Because if you're... Continue reading

What would that be like? You're Rick Renteria. Going to New York for the first time as a real Big League manager. And across the diamond is this other guy, Joe Girardi. The guy everybody in Chicago wanted, back when... Continue reading

I would expect nothing less! Or something...

One day, Rich, the Cubs will sign a massive contract with one station and we can stop with the uncertainty and channel surfing. I can't stand that, either.

Winning only one game per 3 game series, that isn't very good. I'm pretty sure it's like losing two thirds of your games. LIke if you had 3 furry pet bunny rabbits that you loved but 2 were actually cats,... Continue reading

RICH! Hey buddy, been out shooting some commercials and it's been really really busy. Sorry I didn't get back. I love Olt. And it's really nice to beat Rodriguez like this. I think I read he may have some lingering issues from an injury or something...

Well that was certainly a switch. It seems like it's ALWAYS Yadiar Molina with the bat-heroics in a Cubs/Cardinals game. How spectacularly awesome was it to have our own Welington Castillo turn on the fastball and win the game for... Continue reading

Well it seems as if Wandy Rodriguez kinda lost the spell he had over our favorite team. And Mike Olt has hit one out against him in both Cub/Pirate games so far this season. Olt's like that new kid who... Continue reading

Nice, Bud. I did this post today not knowing if I was remotely right, just making an observation in a vacuum. And I had to work late and only now switched on the old At Bat App. I think that, now that the game made the turn to instant replay, it really wont be long until a machine is calling balls and strikes. Seriously, whats the difference between an out call on the bases and a strike? Nothing. A couple cameras. And Ill be so bummed when it happens because a big chunk of charm will leave the game - tonight we got to see Rick Renteria go out and get tossed for complaining about balls and strikes. Thatll go away some day. And itll be a shame because it wasnt until I saw him out there jawing away that I had an opinion of him one way or another. I think I like him.

You may have noticed this back in the looooong, extra inning Cubs loss to the Pirates back on April 2nd. Remember when, in the top of the 8th, Nate Schierholtz hit the grounder to Pirate 2nd baseman Neil Walker with... Continue reading

Harrah! Go sit and watch. I haven't seen enough to draw that kind of conclusion about Castro. But come on, the guy was injured, I cut him some slack...

DB! Obviously I missed the opener. I was in another town. But I"m SO HAPPY IT STARTED. I'll find that play on replay, cause I missed that too...

I'm usually the "name" guy, Bud. Emilio Bonifacio is a fantastic one. HOw can you be bored? It's BASEBALL SEASON, dude.

Uh oh. This feels oddly familiar. In Jeff Samardzija's two starts, the Cubs have a total of zeero runs. None. His ERA is 1.29, giving up 2 earned over 14 innings. In home game number two at Wrigley Field, where... Continue reading

I wonder if Olt got that ball somehow... I had meetings after meetings today, and didn't even hear the radio til driving. The second I turned it on, John Mayberry Jr hit one out and the Cubs were down 6-2. blah blah blah... oh well, on with the season.

Mike Olt's first Homer In The Bigs went up up up on a day when balls were apparently carrying. Certainly Len didn't think much of Olt's contact, and obviously neither did this Pirate Fan. Then, it came down, and we... Continue reading

I think I heard Fontenot is still somewhere too. God, I cant believe Marmol. That guy had the world by the tail.

I don't even know...is Marmol with anybody this year? If not, that nightmare is scarier than I thought.

I'm thinking about doing a tubmlr thing with just the gifs from here. If I ever have any time. Boni is definitely living up to boner status on the basepaths.

Hi Colin, Well, I went all dark and sarcastic today in the next post. But damn, that was exciting for awhile last night! I have meetings today, so I really did go to bed after the top of the 12th. So I missed all the disaster that happened in the next couple hours. Yes, hopefully we're not counting one-run losses on fingers and toes any time soon, but in reality all I'm hoping for is a little fun (that's not too much to ask for, is it?) and let Castro, Rizzo, Olt, Castillo get more big league experience.
