Wasn't it cool watching the crowds in KC go ape for their team? So sad they didn't pull it out but what a series. Yeah, and every year it's good to see somebody get a ring who deserves it. Did you see that interview with his wife in the stands? She seemed really cool and "normal", so I imagine he is too.

That's hilarious. I still have not heard anything official yet.

I know. I feel bad for Ricky Renteria too. But not so much that I wouldn't love Joe Maddon to get signed by the Cubs today. I cannot stand the premature announcements leaving Ricky twisting in this cruel Halloween wind... Continue reading

Yordana Vantura. His team comes home to Kansas City for game 6 of the World Series, he's so magic he can walk 5 and feel no damage. The Royal bats come to relentless life and score again and again in... Continue reading

I like that kid Lincecum, and I hope he gets in at least in some kind of role. He threw his arm off for the Giants, literally.

This is kind of a bait and switch, as far as the illustration. Sometimes, on a hunch I'll think one thing is going to happen and invest my blog time in a painting that has no relevance to what happened.... Continue reading

Yeah, there IS something to this post season, and you can't help but imagine our favorite team here. That Bud ad is about not driving drunk.. and I haven't seen the Google ad. Is that the one where they end up in a tree? And the illustration ain't nothing but Maddon is just a rumor now. But... just wait til it comes true!

DOH! Thanks Bud, I changed. Next time, "Cubs"!

Hunter Pence. I used to loathe this guy when he was an Astro, mostly because he was an Astro. But now he's sort of turned into the "scrappy" guy I admire. Usually, on your basic Cubs teams of the past,... Continue reading

You'd think there would be a big backlash of anger from ohhh, maybe Bud Selig or somebody up top about the timing of this Joe Maddon thing. "HE'S TRYING TO UPSTAGE THE SERIES!" But in reality, it's all good for... Continue reading

Trust me, Telander is just... bitter is how he comes off. It makes me think that Theo won't give him an interview. That and he just really hates The Plan. How many times do we have to read how painful it's been? Whatever, I stopped reading there too. I don't need to be mad about ads to do that.

Rich! Thanks for that, buddy. And I love that forward thinking..

Well, he IS an odd guy, our Marc Trestman. A skinny necked bad hair new-agey offensive guru guy brought here to Chicago, the City of Big Shoulders. I mean, I'm still trying to buy into this new kind of defense-second... Continue reading

Sorry all I have is the painting - no time to write but WHAT AN AWESOME 6TH! Driving in this morning listening to Mike and Mike, and all they talked about was the staredown and benches almost clearing. Really? That's... Continue reading

Man that Madison Bumgarner is good. Lucky to be on the Giants, a team that got all the way to the World Series in '10, '12, and now. That's alot of rare opportunity for anybody, and he's taken advantage of... Continue reading

Yeah, I won't be broken up over either team losing. I just hope the games stay in Awesome Baseball Land like they have been.

You know how much I hated the Astros. He's become much more likable since becoming a giant. I like the speeches and his 110%. Our time will come, Bud.

Bud! You said the WNU thing. I think the last time I said that out loud was after loss #4 in the '03 NLCS. To my brother. He answered, "Because it's the Cubs." We need another thing to say. Because the times demand it.

What a cool NLCS. Last night's game was loaded with just gorgeous pitching, gigantic haymaker home runs that staggered each team each time it happened, some pure guts (how much respect do you have for Adam Wainwright, throwing all those... Continue reading

After the game, they would ask Buster Posey if the conditions were tough. He answered something like, "No...we're used to it." But Randal Grichuk, a rookie starting in right for the first time at AT&T Park - that kid got... Continue reading
