No wonder I'm so giddy all the time!

That's kinda scary, thinking about Andrew McCutchen suddenly coming out of his slump in the next couple days. So far this season, he's only got 11 hits. Below the Mendoza. You just do not want to wake that guy up...... Continue reading

Yeah I joked about Arrieta and his "pissed off" tweet, but think about how many pitches he threw just warming up yesterday. I'm pretty sure that twice they gave new starting times, and I assume each time they did that, he had to warm up again. Unscheduled makeup games v Cards and Reds so far. I hate what that does to valuable days off down the road, so hoping they make 'em doubleheaders.. And...Addison Russell!

Not so much fun, waiting for the rain to clear yesterday. Starter Jake Arrieta even tweeted he was pissed. You can imagine what Reds manager Bryan Price was saying. But the silver lining is a little rest. Pedro Strop's got... Continue reading

Bryant looks like he cuts his own hair. Too bad they didn't take advantage of having Pittsburgh down 0-2, but like you say... potential! And that commercial... what a TON of fun.

Wow, Rich. BABIP is a verb! Who knew? (I'm stealing that) Castro kept rolling last night, and a Russell double. But... bullpen.

500th homer. What a cool Mom, Donna! I remember my mom screaming from inside the house, but it was because she saw the aftermath of a SuzyQ fight my brother and I had in the kitchen. Restriction time after that. And... thank you.

Really truly the "these things have a way of sorting themselves out" thing. And I love it, too. He's really responding.

HAHAHAHA! Hi STATS! It's insane is it not? I heard on the radio Bryant's in center today. I guess that's normal now.

Hi. What a cheap laugh, but whatever - you can't stop talking about Kris Byrant. Had to work late last night so I missed everything, but caught the last couple at bats on the car radio driving home and you... Continue reading

No wonder I went to bed in about the 7th inning all last year.

I think everyone was pretty shocked by that. But after I heard it, well it makes perfect sense. Poor Mike Olt on the 60 day... Anyway, yeah, can't miss a single game this year. Who knows what might happen!

Pat and Len - both been around for a looooooong time, and this is just so new! But if you think Pat sounds excited, you should be my neighbor. I am LOUD. And in case I haven't said it enough, Donna, THANKS FOR RETWEETS!

Wish I had time to write something up. Cubs win it in the 9th with a 3 run rally starring Rizzo (single), Soler (double), Bryant (walk!) and... Starlin Castro (2-run single)! Then Welington Castillo knocked in the winner. Cubs 9... Continue reading

My head is literally spinning from all the crazy stories revolving around the Cubs. It turns out that John Lester has the "flips" - NOT the yips. Surely you saw the ball get stuck in the fingers of his glove... Continue reading

I think he's a worthy part of the pen, just not Ramirez. He's just gotta keep it down. They're in trouble in the pen right now. Hopefully Arrieta goes deep tonight, and Wood... if he can just keep doing that last game that would be AWESOME.

Seriously! I get announcements about every hour that some new genius has a new twitter feed based on something Bryant. "Kris Bryant's Homers" FOLLOW ME! It'll settle down. He looked so much better Saturday... And hey - this year we gotta find some Wrigley time!

Through an absolute freak of nature chance, I totally lucked into getting tix to the game on Friday. And even though I'm working this weekend... TOTALLY worth trading the afternoon of hooky. Didn't get there til kinda late, grabbed my... Continue reading

I ended up going, Rich. Not a whole lot happened but bad breaks, but still my first trip to Wrigley in '15. Kinda awesome!

Well, I'm glad Coach Quenneville made the decision to sit Corey Crawford for this next home game vs Nashville. Darling was just amazing in his last time out, Crawford looks like he needs a day off. This Blackhawks' home crowd... Continue reading

Bud! So bookmark this page: http://chicago.cubs.mlb.com/schedule/broadcast/index.jsp?c_id=chc It tells you what channel each game will be on. Last night's wasn't just MLBTV, it was also on a weird Comcast channel called WPWR, which on my box was channel 184. And if you were scrolling through the channels looking for baseball, it displayed some movie instead of glorious baseball. Bryant is coming. Crazy time.

Wow. Jesse Rogers says Kris Bryant's gonna be playing baseball at Wrigley Field tomorrow. So that's more than a rumor, I guess. Mike Olt will go on the DL with a hairline fracture in his wrist. If you heard the... Continue reading

That's the crazy thing, Rich - they're winning without half the team doing much. I've already had more fun in these few games than in like the last 5 years.

SO happy Alcantara got that hit. Wasn't that so much fun to watch?
