Thanks Bud, I may have to put that one up again.

I was at a meeting, but got the At Bat notification on my phone. SO EXCITING!

It's a nice way to believe, Rich. Because for me at least it used to be all based on black cats and goats.

A homer in his first at bat? How can things possibly get better for the Chicago Cubs in 2014? Jorge Soler came up against the Reds' Mat Latos and hit the 4th pitch he'd ever seen in The Bigs 423... Continue reading

There are so many cool things about this besides the contending part. The whole deal - the hard fought... sort of opportunity we're getting. Fans I'm talking about. You and me. We get to watch a team grow up basically... Continue reading

I totally believed them because it made sense. Don't start clocks, give 'em enough minor league at bats, yada yada. But maybe they had this planned all along - end of '14, we'll be in last so we'll bring 'em up with no pressure. I also would imagine next season getting back to normal if not better home attendance.

you were right about Soler, Rich! More must-watch ball coming up!

Baez Bombs Busch. That's a nice headline, Eric!

The Cubs swept 3 from the first place Baltimore Orioles and knocked their lead over the Yankees from 9 games to 6. That's kind of serious, if you're a Baltimore fan. I'll say it again. Nobody wants to play the... Continue reading

Pretty sure you mean "Baez is now hitting..." and you are correct. It means not a dang thing but it sure feels good!

WHAT A GAME! And I hope that updating the black eye poster becomes a personal pain in the ass for me.

I have this friend in New York, Pete. Met and Islander fan, you've heard me talk about him before. Exactly 5 years ago today, he was all excited going to Citi to see the Mets play the Phils. The Mets... Continue reading

Last night on the Cubs broadcast somebody tweeted a question something like: what do you think was the best Cubs trade, Len and JD? Without missing a beat, Len said the Arrieta trade with Baltimore. It's so weird being able... Continue reading

That never happens, I guess. The Giants protested the rain-delay-tarp-disaster game from the other day and it was upheld by MLB. (For some reason, to me "upheld" sounds like it didn't happen, so lets just say the Giants won their... Continue reading

I either heard or read that this one had nothing show on the radar. And I'm telling you, it hit my back yard on it's way and it was SERIOUS RAIN. Score one for Mother Nature! I like it when computers aren't the know it all they're supposed to be. But if I'm the guy in charge of tarps and there's a hint of humidity? I am paying serious attention.

No but dying to hear. And I absolutely remember the cake scene.

Sure, it was a screwup. The Wrigley Field Grounds Crew got caught by a surprise storm and had to HURRY up and get the tarp out last night. They were in such a rush that, when it unrolled, it was... Continue reading

Im out by the grill, Bud. Listening to Pat and Ron. Just spit some Revolution Rosa Hibiscus Ale. Because of you.

With that hit, the Cubs steaked out a big lead and I think this season the Cubs won 5 games to 2 for the Mets, so we won the cattle AND the war. Okay. Lets retire from that one.

I know. I really wanted to rest over the winter but there'll be none of that, apparently. Thanks for the blog love, Rich.

How many times have you said, "Just watch, the Cubs'll let (insert name here) go to another team and he'll suddenly turn fantastic." Every time I watch Jake Arrieta pitch, I gotta shake my head. I gotta pinch myself. This...... Continue reading
