HAHAHAHAHA! "It sure is nice to have fun baseball." That's so right. And it's not like what we're "used" to, you know? In 2008, I wasn't thinking, "The Cubs are gonna be contenders for years to come!"

A million great moments in this one, Bud. So nice to win it!

I heard it a couple times tonight. I'm sure you watched! Addison Russell is amazing. And what a huge game tomorrow night will be! And THANK YOU for the compliments, Rich!

I can't believe I was just doing this watercolor! The Cubs just beat the Nats 3-2 when Addison Russell hit a game-winning double in the bottom of the 9th with Herrerra on 1st. This was such a great game -... Continue reading

I have no idea, Bud. They confused the hell out of everything with this splitting up of the games. One day the Cubs will get a mega deal with one station and all those problems will be over.

Raven. But we don't talk about that.

Every announcer has a "signature" announcer thing. "Chicago Cubs baseball is on the air." You know who's voice that is - Pat Hughes. Harry Caray used to call homers, "It might be. It could be. IT IS!" But in the... Continue reading

Oh man, Bud. That had to be a rotten experience. Long way to go for that kind of result. But Rizzo... That was SOMETHING.

Nice. Last night in Phoenix, Anthony Rizzo hit s 3-run 9th inning homer to break up a 6 all tie and make the W flag fly waaaay back at Wrigley. The score flipped and flopped in this one, and somewhere... Continue reading

I know, and after last night's game it's just so plain to see they need new arms, or if they got a starter and put Wada in the pen. But Hendricks has supercool potential.

Beane went all in. All his money on the table, and lost. I was rooting for him because it was so obvious with all the rentals. Anyway, not unlike the Pittsburgh deal when the Cubs got Aramis and Kenny Lofton for guys I can't remember except for Bobby Hill (remember what a big deal that kid was?). Sweet.

What a night for Kyle Hendricks. Poor guy hadn't had a win all year, and suddenly that thing he had going for him that had all of us loosely thinking "hey man this guy has kind of a Greg Maddux-like... Continue reading

Well, gotta be honest. I only saw the first couple innings before nodding out. Been busy lately. But as I was nodding out I was totally thinking, "Wow. What if Tsuyoshi Wada throws a no hitter?" He struck out the... Continue reading

Ahhh, watching these kids grow. Gotta take the good with the bad, right? During their 6-game winning streak, not one error. But last night there were errors by Kris Bryant, Addison Russell, and Starlin Castro that turned into runs. Another... Continue reading

And I love it!

Phil Coke DFA'd. Too many lefties in the pen. I can't take my eyes off your last sentence, Rich. That's just crazy talk, dude.

I almost felt bad last night, doing a post about about the bullpen needing to be fixed. So today, a moment of silence out of respect for the 6-game winning streak. There are so many good things happening with the... Continue reading

Baseball is so weird. Before this season started, about the only thing I was sure would be good was the bullpen. Then the season started, the starters couldn't go deep in almost any of the games, the bullpen got used... Continue reading

I heard Maddon post game, and somebody must have asked a question about the Cubs being lucky. And Maddon sounded pretty firm and said something like if you've been watching, it's just evening out. But I don't know, man. We'll never see that one again..

All I can say is... get better down there, Javy!

We used to have open gym at my high school in Belleville. They'd put all the gymnastics equipment out and you could go hang on the rings or whatever. Lots of kids went including all the varsity cheerleaders. I think... Continue reading

I might try thinking them up beforehand. Got any ideas?
