Well, I could get used to this Sunday Night Football thing. There was alotta talk before the game about how the Bears hadn't faced a really tough offense besides the Pack and Pats. Kirk Cousins is really good, yada yada.... Continue reading

BA HAHAHAHAHA! Yeah, Javy is that quick. I hadn't heard anything about the left handed thing and no didn't see the interview. Astonishing, that guy.

Happy Friday. Look! I painted something besides a Cub. Weird. Hey, you hear that flapping in the breeze? What IS that? It looks like... why that's Jim Hickey! "That’s [Hickey] not a subject I’m able to address at this point."... Continue reading

I know! Olney. Anthony Rizzo tweeted: "Sources" LOL why don't people just own up instead of writing article for clicks? It's football season take a break and chill."

Who's the only other Cub 2nd baseman to ever win the Silver Slugger? This guy: Ryne Sandberg won it 7 times. Javier Baez just won his first. That's some lofty company there, Javy. And if you go back just a... Continue reading

Yeah that playoff performance was lame. And the other stuff... "That' s baseball" shouldn't mean "It's okay to play dirty" Don't try to blur that line.

Yep. I think that playing both SS and 2nd doesn't help Javy with this GG voting. But if you ask GMs around the league who's the best infielder in baseball, I bet they'd say Javy.

No time to write, but this is awesome news. Anthony Rizzo wins his 2nd Gold Glove award! And if all goes right in the world, he'll keep 'em coming. Now, about Javier Baez... can I speak to whoever judges these... Continue reading

Think. Think. Talk. Think. Dream. Think. Talk. Think. Eat. Think. Sleep. If you're Brandon Kintzler, you're thinking about inducing ground balls so much, you might start writing it out longhand like a grade school punishment. Not really sure what happened... Continue reading

HAHA nice, Bud. Remember how "wait til next year" used to be so... kinda hollow? It IS great saying that any more.

For some reason, I don't like seeing digital readouts of how many days til Opeing Day. And I'm terrible with calendars. Some people can say, "Oh that second Monday in December is the 13th." Not me. But a steadily disappearing... Continue reading

I started painting this sketch of Rich Hill when he was still in the game and the Dodgers were up 4 to nothin'. I was pretty happy for the ex-Cub. In the top of the 7th, he walked Xander Bogaerts... Continue reading

HI Bud! I'm sure golf is in your current situation as well. Tonight was a great game til Roberts pulled Hill. Oh well, those Red Sox are pretty dang good.

An 18 inning World Series game with the Dodgers beating the Red Sox 3-2. I got an alert on my phone that said "Instant Classic!" Maybe it's because I really can't muster any emotion for either team except anger ("BELLINGER... Continue reading

Sorry. Yesterday I got so wrapped up in travel times that I got the cities backwards. The Series opens tonight at Fenway with Chris Sale facing Clayton Kershaw in the opposite of a Subway Series. This is more like the... Continue reading

I don't usually call out a manager. They always know more than I do. They're also in the moment on the field, and I'm watching slow motion replays with a cold beer. But when Craig Counsell brought in Josh Hader... Continue reading

It's good baseball for sure, Bud. Entertaining and fun to watch. That's pretty shocking about the payroll situation. Cubs #3? Because I expect next year that the Cubs will... surely not spend less. And I thought the Dodgers would be up around #1. Hmm. Oh well, too bad for the Brewers. Somebody sent me a text that said, "Counsell outsmarted himself". Yeah.

Hi. Well, this is actually kind of an awesome series, this NLCS. When I first heard (on the radio at work) that Craig Counsell pulled starter Wade Miley after just a couple pitches, I was at a loss. That woulda... Continue reading

Never happen. Not with THAT baggage. And it's hilarious to be watching playoff baseball with no skin in the game. Like, contextually being a fan for so long. Just weird that I'm like, "I can't believe the Cubs aren't in the NLCS."

I actually painted this months ago. Because, you know, back then I knew the Cubs would be playing deep into October. Didn't happen. To be honest, I didn't figure they'd win the Series this year anyway, but once you get... Continue reading

BUD! What a nice note. Yeah I’ll keep going. Just take a little time off first. And if u didn’t hear it live, google Theo’s press conference. That guy is the model of modern team-running perfection.

(I started this on Wednesday, the day after.) Well, that was kind of a long-winded way to go out. I actually enjoyed the game and, in a sign that 2016 is still alive and well in my heart, believed that... Continue reading

ERIC! Well, we know the score now, huh? Eff the Brewers and may they have to come back thru Chicago for the NL championship.

Well, there you go. Even more difficult than we thought possible. Cubs 1 Brewers 3. Another one of those games where the bats were blind as... bats. Anthony Rizzo connected on a massive homer to tie the game at 1,... Continue reading

On a side note, Anthony Rizzo knocked in his 100th RBI last night. That's 4 years in a row he's done that, and the first time for a Cub lefty bat. Cubs beat the Cards 10-5 in game 162, and... Continue reading
