I'm not sure what angle in launch angle is the optimum, and I'm not gonna try to find whatever the exit velocity was. I'm just saying that from my old school perspective, Kyle Schwarber hit the ever-lovin' snot out of... Continue reading

Shrimp? Weird. So glad I'm not allergic to any food.

Thanks Bud. What a sobering weekend, huh? Yuck.

Thanks Dave. And with Mr. Prine, I've been a huge fan of his since the late '70s. Just a uniquely American artist in the best sense of that thought.

Sorry, I'm in the middle of production, Sunday was not a day off and I don't have a painting. The headline from hell was Kris Bryant getting beaned in the head (I'm sure you've all seen it too many times... Continue reading

That's more like it. So nice to have Joe Maddon say stuff like this than something about the weather, right? You wonder if there was some kind of memo that went out to the team saying, "Hey man, you don't... Continue reading

How much have you missed him? I mean, I applaud the job done by Victor Caratini, but no Anthony Rizzo means there's a giant hole not just in the lineup or at first, but in the soul of the Cubs.... Continue reading

Hi Rich! Nice discipline. You gotta hang in there with these guys, right? Unfortunately, it's snowing out my office window as I write this. And it's supposed to be really cold so... I hope they call the game. I'm getting so nervous about someone getting hurt.

SERIOUSLY! They're not playing today, I don't think (can't tell if "delayed" means it could still happen today?). Tomorrow's (Cardinals!) not gonna be any better either - I see hi 36 plus snow.

It didn't look pretty from the get-go. The grass looked gray, all the players were wearing those weird hood-hats, wind blowing like a tornado... it just looked cold and really miserable. And when the Braves scored in each of the... Continue reading

Wow that's a weirder pic than when half of Wrigley was under construction and there were no bleachers. I'm trying to remember what I paid the last time for scalped tix. I remember sitting with a bunch of businessmen from Texas, one of their party couldn't make it so it wasn't a scalper and probably a minimal overcharge.

Like to take this little Pittsburgh series. And Caratini - his stats aren't off the charts but I've been pretty impressed with his presence. I'd be nervous pitching to that guy.

There's a joke somewhere in the "long balls" thing, but I think I already did it.

Len and JD were talking about what a pain that Cervelli guy is becoming for our favorite team, but that as a name for a meatball place is hilarious! Smoker pitched to 8 or 9 Cubs to get his 3 outs. He just had to do his time.

What a one-man wrecking crew Javier Baez has been the last couple days. You can read the 5 runs, 4 homers, walk and 6 RBIs in his stats, but there ain't a stat for the crazy pressure he's putting on... Continue reading

Thanks Rich! And, it wasn't really an exaggeration, that expression.

You guys have no idea what it's like for me any more. Because there's no more negative with the Cubs, which used to be such a great source of misery and humor. So I guess I gotta make more fun of the other guys...

I guess it's supposed to clear up, but when I walked outside this morning it was... snowing. And could only be Opening Day for our favorite team. Kris Bryant already said, "It should be fun, nice and cold, snow, home... Continue reading

Hilarious, Maris! Q is so good. This rotation should be amazing and like you say, perhaps partly because we have a bullpen. The Lester Bunt... I was laughing, reading his "I suck" attitude quotes with the bat. Wouldn't want to play golf with that guy. 3 of 4 from the Brewers, that's a really really awesome weekend. Home opener tomorrow. I hear it's gonna be a blizzard. WOOOOO!

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Seriously. Nobody likes that guy.

This painting is of Ryan Braun's expression as he watched 2 of 3 Brandon Morrow pitches get called for strikes in the bottom of the 9th yesterday. He swung at the 2nd one, but still a backwards K. It was... Continue reading

MARK! Howdy. I'm right now in that phase of jet lag where I feel somewhere between drunk and hallucinating. That's how it was seeing all those hits in a row last night, too!

We just got back from 2 weeks abroad. I missed that play by 5 minutes. SO COOL!!!

Time for me to come clean*. I've been on a family vacation that started and ended in Amsterdam, with Cadiz (Spain), Seville, and Lisbon in the middle there. The flight back is about 8-9 hours with the headwind, and I... Continue reading
