The Best Game I Never Saw

I sat at work today, occasionally looking at the score of today’s Cubs vs. Rockies game.  After a 4 run deficit in the 1st inning and a 8 run deficit by the middle of the 4th inning, I had all but written off this game.  At least we can take care of them tomorrow and salvage the series…right?  Well, by the 7th inning, Continue reading

Alternate Ending to Last Night’s Game

As I laid in bed last night, satisfied with the Cubs extra-inning win and delighted with the fact that Soriano slapped a base hit, I created the following scenerio in the form of a lucid dream:

I imagined pausing the world after Fontenot touched homeplate to win the game.  Soriano and I Continue reading

Pittsburgh

A weekend in Pittsburgh is, well, you know what happened. Although Aramis Ramirez, the Cub RBI machine got key hits in both of the Cubs’ losses, the Cubbies found ways to lose. A lost fly ball Continue reading

It looks as though the Cubs will face three lefties this weekend, so Reed Johnson will get the starts in Center Field.  We’ll see how he does after sitting on the bench four days in a row.  I somewhat understand this platooning in CF,    Continue reading

Do the Hustle

Soto

Geovany Soto “dashed” around the bases last night like only a catcher can.  Almost 49 years after it last happened, a Cubs catcher hit an inside the park homerun.  Soto is quickly helping me forget   Continue reading

Sometimes I Am Wrong

I have been fairly outspoken about certain Cubs players.  I appreciate everything they do for the club, and I know they are great for the team, but I don’t care for Aramis Ramirez and Alfonso Soriano.  These two are the biggest culprits of guys that love to admire any ball they hit.  However, usually that ball leaves the yard.
