Junior Lake center of attention, for now

Junior Lake center of attention, for now
Just as I finished writing that we would have to be patient and wait for the kids to come, here they come it seems. It may have just been a couple of the system’s stars being promoted, but it felt big. Kris Bryant and Dan Vogelbach’s ascension weren’t the only moves that sent ripple effects... Read more »

AYYYYY!!!!!!!! A farewell to Fonzie

AYYYYY!!!!!!!! A farewell to Fonzie
It will always remain one of the most riveting images in baseball I’ve ever witnessed. Before every Yankee game, Derek Jeter and Alfonso Soriano would warm up by playing catch. They’d start out about 75 feet apart. Then Jeter would take a step back. Then Soriano would take a step back. Then another. Then another.... Read more »

Cubs respectfully await Soriano decision

Cubs respectfully await Soriano decision
Yesterday morning we knew Alfonso Soriano had something to ponder. As the day went on and the reports came in it became clear that Sorinao didn’t really want to leave Chicago, but if he did he would welcome going back to a home of sorts in New York. “I’d like to finish my contract here...

Giving a dead bird to a blind kid. Cubs 6 Cardinals 4.

Giving a dead bird to a blind kid. Cubs 6 Cardinals 4.
The Cubs tried to rebound from a tough loss yesterday in a rare Saturday night game against the the Cardinals. The Cubs brought their hitting gloves and Matt Garza, POSSIBLY PITCHING HIS LAST GAME AS A CUB, kept the Nl’s leading offense at bay as the Cubs took their second game of the series. Lance...

All the stars in the night shine in your name. Cubs 7 Angels 2.

All the stars in the night shine in your name. Cubs 7 Angels 2.
The Cubs might want to make a deal with the White Sox and play in the AL next year. The Cubs hit 5 home runs in destroying the overpaid, over the hill Angels of Anaheim tonight. Starter Joe Blanton, as has been his bugaboo, served up the first 4, including back to back jacks by... Read more »

Sit on it Al! Cubs 4 Pirates 1.

Sit on it Al! Cubs 4 Pirates 1.
The Cubs started off the bottom of the first with Julio Borbon getting on base with a walk, Stealing second, and going to third with a wild throw. Man on third, no outs. The Cubs failed to get him in. But before Cub fans could draw the target circles on their crotches and finish the... Read more »

Sweet Oblivion. Cubs 7 Mariners 6

Edwin Jackson took the bump for the Cubbies. And he was looking for redemption after an off performance.
Well the Cubs do like to make it interesting. On a picture perfect day, the Cubs and the Mariners concluded their slop fest with the rubber match between these two rebuilding teams. Pitches were thrown hits, were made, calls were questioned, beers were consumed by the gallon full. Hit the lights, it’s moving pictures time….... Read more »

This is Shangri-La. Cubs 5 Mariners 3

This is Shangri-La. Cubs 5 Mariners 3
So same drink, but with a twist. The Cubs got another good starting pithing performance, Wore killer throwback uni’s, scraped enough of a lead, only to turn it over to Kevin Gregg and have him surrender his first blown save of the year. But instead of spiraling out into the one-loss sea, Alfonso Soriano spanked... Read more »

If the rains come they run and hide their heads. Cards 5 Cubs 2.

If the rains come they run and hide their heads. Cards 5 Cubs 2.
With the Cubs-Cards being delayed by rain, The Blackhawks skating into walls in Boston, and John’s Minor league report coming up, I decided to push the wrap to this morning. Not that there was much to wrap. The Cubs came into St. Louis off another gut punch game in New York. And one could wonder... Read more »

Smell the whiskey burning down Copperhead Road. Cubs 7 Snakes 2.

Smell the whiskey burning down Copperhead Road. Cubs 7 Snakes 2.
After peeing in the White Sox corn flakes for three games, the Cubs took on a first place team today and resumed right where they left off. Not peeing of course, but getting great starting pitching, some power hitting, and the underrated  defense led to a 7-2 trouncing of the Arizona Diamondbacks. Alfonso Soriano got... Read more »
