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.

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

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..

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