I'm not looking anything up, but to me Strop seems to be either on or off, and nothing in between. Like, if he doesn't have his best stuff, he falls off a cliff. When he's on, however, yeah he'll take those 3 outs away.

Which is the same streak the Cards have going! A dozen runs certainly was nice.

When I talk to people from Boston, they say Theo can totally be a robot. He didn't rent Chapman for 4 guys to not win this season. If he thinks Heyward isn't a solution, he'll find one. I don't know Reddick, but from what I read, he's very good. I LOVE Heyward in the outfield, and I just plain like him - he's a good guy and I'm totally pulling for him still. But I don't think Theo thinks like that.

I hear people say, "HOW COME EVERYBODY'S TALKING ABOUT CHAPMAN LIKE THEY'VE NEVER SEEN HIM BEFORE?" It's that guy in a Cub uni that's so weird. And awesome!

I can't believe Coghlan's timely but not very well struck ball, knocking in 2. He raised his average to .157! If the Cubs do trade for Reddick, Cogs won't be part of it - he already didn't do well in Oakland.

I can't wait to see him live. And right on cue, Heyward hits one out. HE'S ALL BETTER, KEVIN! No worries, dude.

Seriously. Look at that picture of Aroldis Chapman. His legs are going one way, and his upper body the other. If you're the batter, it's got to look like a special effect from Hell. Nobody does that. Here's ESPN's Sports... Continue reading

Last night was all about one thing: power. The bats woke up and put on an awesome display with Kris Bryant, Javier Baez and Addison Russell all knocking balls out the park. And then came the 8th inning, which showed... Continue reading

Big day yesterday, Bud. Now it's Tuesday. I wonder if we see our new closer tonight?

Hey Eric and Kevin, Yeah, to all that. We're not in Kansas any more. I get it. I agree with this move, and the Cubs are so much better now. Like I said, I moved on. But like with Kane, that'll always be at the back of the brain like a little tumor. It's baggage.

In the fridge in my office is a little tiny freezer, and in that freezer I keep a supply of small York Peppermint Patties. Sometimes in the afternoon, if things are dragging, I remember they're there and pull some out.... Continue reading

As former Cubs broadcaster Steve Stone used to say: "Let that be a lesson to all you young pitchers out there." If Kris Bryant is up and there are guys on 2nd and 3rd, don't go walking him on purpose.... Continue reading

Wasn't THAT a nice how do you do? I didn't think he was going to come back for a couple more days. Suddenly there's Dexter Fowler in the batter's box hitting one straight-as-you-please... out. The. Park. And then a double... Continue reading

Hey, not that is sucks completely to be a Mariner in Seattle. But if you're Mike Montgomery and you're doing okay on a totally middle of the pack team on the rainy coast of America and you get a call... Continue reading

God. The bleachers. I used to be a regular in the '80s and '90s. Zonk. Andre. Sammy. Kind of awesome. Then time passed and one day a scalper asked $80 for a bleacher seat. I said, "I LIVE HERE, MAN." Anyway I kinda miss it. And you musta had a fab view of The Throw. Awesome, Kevin. And every day I think how lucky we are to have gotten Maddon, who changed the way we think about Baez. I thought he was gonna be traded long ago. Now, I'm so happy he's a Cub.

It's a hard one because it sounds so weird. Maybe I'll bring a sign one day.

Some company sent him a bunch of chips. I'd have made a giant deal out of it, if I owned that company.

Montero has been an amazing team mate through this process, too.

You know I'm slammed or I woulda posted something during this important series against the Dog Ass Mets. Today was a day game, and like me I'm sure that many of you weren't able to watch it live. But there... Continue reading

Yeah, those guys were more tired than I thought, that's for sure!

SO THRILLED ABOUT LESTER! And what about Matty Szczur? Wow. I threw most of that shot out of focus so you can't see all the gunk. There's a foil pan under the butt filled with water to keep it moist in there. That might be fooling you. Otherwise, the grill itself is not anything to brag about as far as clean. I drag the wire brush over it, then spray with oil.
