I didn't realize the 10 day thing, Rich. Hmmm. The channels that the cubs turn up on... sometimes it's like 15 minutes of just flipping before I can find it. SO INFURIATING. Just wait til they're on one channel. Anthony Rizzo is FREAKING ME OUT!!!!!

Arismendy! The good news is he'll stay even if he takes over in center. And yeah it's never fun to watch a guy fail, but I'm already over it.

It's not that often we get to puff out our chests and brag about the Cubs, is it? Anthony Rizzo hit a couple dingers yesterday and took over the NL lead with his 25th. That's 2 more than he hit... Continue reading

Wish I woulda read this back then and been inspired by your chef-ness, Bud.

Well, this will be at least one compelling story for the rest of the season (I hope). And that's to watch young Kyle Hendricks gain experience. Pretty awful ode to a 60's psychadelic Jimi Hendrix poster, but there you have... Continue reading

C.I.T. I suspect you're vegetarian. If you make the cole slaw from the recipe above I promise you won't be revolted.

It would be a rotten way to end this gorgeous weekend if they lose, but I too am prepared with this recipe: In a shortie rocks glass, add some cracked ice. Pour in Jack Daniels. Sip.

Kind of interesting in the NL Central right after the All-Star break. Brewers and Cards tied at 54-44, then the Reds and Pirates tied at 51-46. 2.5 games out. That's pretty tight, and while there aren't alot of good choices... Continue reading

Hey Rich, That team is sort of in sight, too!

What a drag for him, stuck back behind all the other talented 3rd base prospects. Years ago, Christian Villanueva coulda been at least a Cubs Convention big wig. But now? Just kinda vanilla. In yesterday's Baseball Perspectus Minor League Update,... Continue reading

109. That's so impossible. I wonder what the odds are that a team could go 109 years without the Big Win. Just freaky.

HAHAHAHAHAHA! Cubbery. It gets on a Cub Fan's clothes and you can never wash it out. Thanks for the nice comment, Nosh.

Hi Patrick, Yeah, the possibility of the WS is years off, but still the possibility is there and they're getting so much better. I cannot imagine what tix would go for... but you're in the ballpark.

The last time the Cubs did a massive, complete team rebuild that resulted in a World Series winning dynasty started right at the beginning of the 20th century with a guy who, like Theo Epstein, came to Chicago after having... Continue reading

I google imaged "Baez Bat" and a Rawlings bat came up, so yep! No kidding. Next year we may have moved miles compared to the first couple feet (at the big league level). It's going to be AWESOME!

I don't know about you, but the home run derby held little interest for me this year. The amazing thing happened the day before. At the All Star Futures Game. I could go on about how cheesy and just overall... Continue reading

HAHAHA. Yeah that's kind of a great name, isn't it? Hey do me a favor and call the Cubs marketing department and then mention my name and "genius" in the same line. Tell 'em I'll do freelance. I had no idea the Yanks were only 6 ahead of the Cubs. Wow. Maybe they WOULD take Jackson...

Eric! The last name is "Al KAHN tra". Not sure about the first name. For now I kind of like "Starting 2B" for a nickname.

Not that Arismendy Alcantara won't be up for more than a cup of coffee, because even if he goes back down after the All-Star break, he'll be back up again. Just too good. But if I were the Cubs I'd... Continue reading

It's the talk of the town. There ain't no guarantee on either of the prospects, so I'd be real cautious about trading an all-star SS.
1 reply
Yep that's Alcantara number one. I heard Pat yesterday say ArisMENdy, but I still don't trust myself on how to say it. It would be nice all the way around if they could package Darwin Barney and somebody to go somewhere where Darwin Barney would be wanted and needed. He's such a good guy, and unbelievably talented with the glove.
