It was a travel day. I missed EVERYTHING. Rubber game, HOF inductions... Greg Maddux going into the Hall is way-up-there special, wish I could have seen it. Okay, couple oldies... Maddux beating Boston in 2005 - he hit a homer... Continue reading

Of course Pierzynski hits away. I should have kept my mouth shut.

Man are the Cardinals desperate. I can think of a million other things to call AJ Pierzynski other than this "i" joke. But you know... language. Continue reading

If Oakland is in the playoffs this year, I'm totally rooting for them. Billy B needs the cred, and I'd like Theo to see the example he sets when going for it all. Because one day, Theo's gonna have to trade... not for the prospect, but for the World Series.

Yeah. You know and I know nothing really matters for the Cubs this year. But a back and forth battle ending in a 7 to 6 Cub victory over the Cardinals at Wrigley Field? That's pretty sweet. And I can... Continue reading

Awesome scores, Bud! Can't wait til the name of the team is "Cubs".

I'm stuck with some really bad connection - can't wait to see this!

I've been in Chicago a long, long time. But I can still remember the first insane cab ride I got, coming to town from O'Hare. Guy was just in a hurry. Really really crazy fast driving not necessarily in any... Continue reading

I didn't realize the 10 day thing, Rich. Hmmm. The channels that the cubs turn up on... sometimes it's like 15 minutes of just flipping before I can find it. SO INFURIATING. Just wait til they're on one channel. Anthony Rizzo is FREAKING ME OUT!!!!!

Arismendy! The good news is he'll stay even if he takes over in center. And yeah it's never fun to watch a guy fail, but I'm already over it.

It's not that often we get to puff out our chests and brag about the Cubs, is it? Anthony Rizzo hit a couple dingers yesterday and took over the NL lead with his 25th. That's 2 more than he hit... Continue reading

Wish I woulda read this back then and been inspired by your chef-ness, Bud.

Well, this will be at least one compelling story for the rest of the season (I hope). And that's to watch young Kyle Hendricks gain experience. Pretty awful ode to a 60's psychadelic Jimi Hendrix poster, but there you have... Continue reading

C.I.T. I suspect you're vegetarian. If you make the cole slaw from the recipe above I promise you won't be revolted.

It would be a rotten way to end this gorgeous weekend if they lose, but I too am prepared with this recipe: In a shortie rocks glass, add some cracked ice. Pour in Jack Daniels. Sip.

Kind of interesting in the NL Central right after the All-Star break. Brewers and Cards tied at 54-44, then the Reds and Pirates tied at 51-46. 2.5 games out. That's pretty tight, and while there aren't alot of good choices... Continue reading

What a drag for him, stuck back behind all the other talented 3rd base prospects. Years ago, Christian Villanueva coulda been at least a Cubs Convention big wig. But now? Just kinda vanilla. In yesterday's Baseball Perspectus Minor League Update,... Continue reading

109. That's so impossible. I wonder what the odds are that a team could go 109 years without the Big Win. Just freaky.
