You're aware that lots of times I may base a point of view on something not wholly related to science. Or fact. I pull meaning out of random crap and turn it into reality that exists only in my head.... 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

When you have to answer the reporters about not just one but two things you should have done instead of what you did do... In game number 4 of the 2014 NLCS... Each of which went from little things to... 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

The idea that anybody can play baseball directly after yanking an oblique is just silly. Even if you're Yadier Molina. Even if Mike Matheny is kind of talking like he might. A.J. Pierzynksy is saying he hasn't been told that... Continue reading

This standard deviation you speak of. It's no good for my heart. Too high of highs and too low of lows. I think what I'm saying is I agree 100%.

Towards the end of the Bears fabulous victory over the Falcons, some guy intercepted a Matt Ryan pass. With about 4 minutes to go and the Bears up by 14, you could kinda relax a little. But the anncr says... Continue reading

For some reason I'm way too familiar with these two teams in this particular series. But it's still pretty good baseball watchin'. Remember Madison Bumgarner's bum throw to first in game 3 against the Nats? The mistake that let a... Continue reading

Got a couple - the round one that rolls and looks like the one used to be in the library in highschool. And one that allows you to reach the ceiling to paint a room or change bulbs that looks like the drawing but with a couple more steps.

And now... faced with the prospect of having to replace it. Have you seen the price of Cub t-shirts lately? It's horrifying.

Doug Dascenzo coming back to be the Cubs first base coach! I always liked him as an outfielder (and a pitcher) and a big part of that his size. He's just 5'7" tall. He's one of those inspirational characters in... Continue reading

Shoulda tried the "paint something" - that's kind of believable around here..

Last weekend I'm out back yelling at all the green tomatoes to hurry up and turn red. Like "Free Bird" on the radio, a frost can come at any time and ruin everything. Suddenly from a window comes the voice... Continue reading

Yes and that came through loud and clear, Bud. Could. Not. Agree. More.

I already had my freakout after the Bill's loss in week one. I thought the Bears had invested Years of Future in the wrong people. Maybe they have, but I'm trying to not go there because winter hasn't even started... Continue reading

Hard to pick, isn't it? I like what you were saying yesterday, Rich. Maybe it's just all in for KC.

In last night's Nationals/Giants game, tension boiled over in the bottom of the 10th when home plate ump Vic Carapazza called Nat Asdrubal Cabrera out on a 2nd high strike. Cabrera threw down his bat and had a hissy in... Continue reading

From what I read, and I am by no means a Dodger expert, but they're bullpen isn't that great. Supposedly an easy decision for Mattingly. I'm totally tracking you with your "right way" reasoning: I like the Cards -92% and the Dodgers -99%. And if the Royals keep this up I'm gonna buy a hat with a KC on it.

How do they do that? How do the St. Louis Cardinals, year after year, get into the playoffs and do stuff like they did last night? 8 runs off the best pitcher in baseball? Clayton Kershaw came into the game... Continue reading

I like what you did there, Bud. And being an NAU grad, I feel silly AZ pride when AZ teams do well. I bet they're ranked by now esp since ASU got hammered by UCLA. That's a nice conference...
