As far as hurling goes, it's not really about how far Anthony Rizzo's stretch shortens the throw from an infielder, it's how far his legs stretch apart. He is one big guy, and it's just not natural when he does... Continue reading

If Castro makes it back too, what an example for the team those guys are. Next year could be memorable for much better reasons than any in decades.

Yeah, West was kind of shocking too. That quote is priceless - Ryno must be pulling out... well at least a little of his hair. And the answer to the Javy question is... yes we can.

Lots of people were "off" yesterday. The good one was Anthony Rizzo, in his first game back from the back thing, hits a walk off homer in the bottom of the 9th and looked as happy as a little kid... Continue reading

They should change the lyrics to that Bears fight song. Honestly? I turned off the tv after the blocked punt followed by the Niner TD. Thought for sure the Bears would lose by 30. As low as I get, I... Continue reading

Last night, did you hear Len Kasper say that Hector Rondon's ERA was .43 since the All-Star break? I know ERA isn't the best measurement for relievers, but still I was absolutely shocked. Of course, Travis Snyder immediately hit a... Continue reading

This is a joke, but honest to god, a september swoon would be an improvement on the last how many years?

I guess it's not a secret. http://www.chicagotribune.com/sports/smackblog/chi-patrick-kane-lebron-james-mcdonalds-commercial-20140911-column.html The hotel was right next to the Cleveland Clinic, which is also next to nothing else at all. The coffee was from one of those machines you put the little plastic cup of grounds and pour in water and it spits out one cup at a time. When you have that for 3 days in a row at 5am, it really truly does begin to taste like crap.

I just had a beer from Murphysboro, IL called "Blueberry Blonde". Made with blueberries, too. It was actually fantastic! There, done with the complaining.

Yep, not a best western. I'm afraid I sounded like an ungrateful brat, huh?

Well, you're absolutely right, Rich. Let me adjust my brain here and I'll get back on track.

Here's what you say sometimes: "I'll meet you guys at the bar in five minutes." That's right after you've driven an hour or so in bad weather from wherever you were shooting your spot and you've just gotten all your... Continue reading

I take it you never went to a Ramones concert, Bud. They never stop. One song ends, and then they yell "ONETWOTHREEFOUR" and the next song starts. As for slumps, it feels sleepy with our fav team. How much to you miss Rizzo and Castro?

Yeah. This is kinda it, huh? Strikeouts are just the bitter pills we gotta swallow, hits are pretty rare, and wins are gravy. But it's what we signed up for, and this is the time for it. So don't get... Continue reading

HAHAHAHA That game depressed the hell out of me. Seattle looks impossible to beat, so we might as well not even play. I mean, I got over it, but that's all I could think of.

Man, the Seahawks in game one. The Bears schedule is alot harder than last year, and everybody's so nervous about the D again. That's such an unusual feeling for a Bear fan... I forgot the Cubs play the Crew again - thought that was it. Brewers, Cards, Reds, Blue Jays and Dodgers. Nice.

Nobody wants to play the Cubs right now. No pressure for them, the kids are playing loose while the playoff wannabes are so tight. Awesome to watch..

Sure wouldn't be too much fun being a Brewer Fan right now. Less than a week ago, they were one and a half up on the Cards and all alone in first. They came to Chicago on a 5 game... Continue reading
