I was working a tad late when I got a text that Joe Maddon was being interviewed on ESPN. Emily's radio was out of batteries, so I had to wind up the emergency radio with the crank. I missed most... Continue reading

God. Does any other team have that many Boras clients? Or that many name clients? Yuck a rama.

Remember. Heart says bring Kris Bryant up for Opening Day at Wrigley. Head says wait. Here's a fun old post on Andre Dawson. Continue reading

His arm is freakish! And while I love pretty much everything about baseball, my fav play is the play at the plate with a fabulous throw from a guy just like Soler. Cannot wait!

Something wonky going on with blog - I responded to this awhile back. Anyway, it's SO MUCH FUN to play this game of what incredible talent will be playing where. I still think Baez will... if he comes to Wrigley where the expectations are almost unreasonably high and there's a ton of pressure and he strikes out a ton, people will boo. Stupid people, granted, but they'll boo. And that would break my heart. So I hope he goes to the minors and perfects what he's working on swing-wise.

Of all these things, the most daring is hoping Jorge Soler becomes Rookie of the Year. Everything I've read about him this Spring has been excellent, including (can't remember where I read it) some scout saying he really hasn't swung... Continue reading

Makes perfect sense, Rich.

Jr. Lake needs a new head. Maddon's all about fundamentals and Lake not so much. These Cub problems ARE the opposite of years past, and that is AWESEOME.

Jon Lester missed a scheduled OH MY GOD KRIS BRYANT JUST HIT A HOMER OFF FELIX HERNANDEZ start yesterday due to "dead arm". And actually we've all heard the term "dead arm" and for some people it's just a normal... Continue reading

Hi Bud, Nobody likes Scott Boras. But other than screaming about it, he doesn't really get a vote. Ha. Ha. Seriously, read this: http://boston.cbslocal.com/2015/03/19/massarotti-theo-epstein-cubs-making-scott-boras-squirm-over-kris-bryant/

I worked in restaurants for 8 years. Probably made maybe... thousands of pots of coffee? A busboy showed me this trick one time. You know how you get a stack of coffee filters and they're all stuck together and it's... Continue reading

Man, raw fish at a ballpark? I love sushi, but I like it when I can see the fish it came from and watch the guy cut it up. My parking guy was down to $25 last year, and the location really can't be beat. But I have a feeling that for some reason he'll be going back up this year.

You cannot deny the joy in the air. Baseball is here, and the Cubs are at the very beginning of what we all hope will be a multi-year magical journey of baseball bliss. It's a party alright. With new guests... Continue reading

That story is awesome, Donna. I'm gonna pay more attention to the triple peanut and see what kind of magical powers it might actually have. Juan Freaking Pierre. Wow. And IM ON MY WAY TO A BEER CAMP NOW!

"Intrigue" is kind of... it seems like way bigger than for just Cub fans. I can't go thru a day without reading or hearing about Mr. Bryant and when will he come up?! But it is a kinda cool time of year, I did pay $20 to get into some kind of MM brackety pool thing and the Hawks' figuring out how to get by without Kaner is fun to watch with the new guys fitting in. But Cubs Cardinals in 3 weeks - THAT'S the thing. Can't wait!

This is from '08: If you've ever parked in the alleys around Wrigley, you'll know exactly what this is about. It means you have a lack of foresight and common sense, and are ignorant in the ways of public transportation.... Continue reading

My head hurts. What? I'll read this again later, Bud.

Okay, I don't have time to compare EVERY team but you get the point. Kris Bryant is having kind of a monster spring and leads all baseball in homers with 6 so far. That's more than the Sox or the... Continue reading

Will Ferrel was kind of a good luck charm. The inning with him as 3rd base coach was awesome. Soler with one and then Bryant with the GR double. Plus his 2 homers. Very nice

Last year I'd have been alot more excited about this. You know, we were all looking for fun and this would have been perfect. Today Will Ferrell will suit up for a bunch of teams and the good news is... Continue reading
