How Bad?

Sunday, June 18th, 2006

You want a barometer reading on how bad the Cubs are right now? - Mr. Patience has taken to calling Cub fans “lemmings”, Mad-Lib style.  Pot, meet kettle.
He even starts slinging out the Desipo-like Dusty “dude” jokes.  This is why I haven’t been blogging much lately, and why I gave up on the Game Logs […]

Buck/Caray Smackdown

Wednesday, October 19th, 2005

Yesterday, I was comparing Joe Buck to Chip Caray. Today, I find them pitted against each other, thunderdome style, in “The Road from Bristol”. These two remind me of a Robin Williams’ bit about Geo. Bush - “Some men are born great, some achieve greatness, and some get it as a graduation gift.”
Yes, […]

Crazy people don’t think they’re getting crazy. They think they’re getting saner.

In checking my sitemeter, I noticed someone came through this site while doing a web search for “cub fans pull for sox over cardinals”. In looking over the list, I noticed a couple of other fan blogs for other teams (notably the Mariners and the Padres) pulling for a Cards/White Sox series because “it […]

Bleacher Pics

Tuesday, October 18th, 2005

A big shout-out to Andrew Clem who pointed some folks looking for bleacher construction pics over to my site. I love his dynamic diagrams of ballparks and I will definitely be pointing people over to that part of his site when I get the Wrigley Field section of my main Cubs History site up […]

Dumped Dogs and other Northeast Media Follies

I was perusing the mlb.com page and looking at today’s pitcher matchups and the 5-year-old in me just had to giggle at the Yankee-Blue Jay pairing: Johnson and Bush.

You can’t argue with success, but you can stare dumbfoundedly at it.
Andy Dolan in the Desipio.com game comments.

If You Can’t Back It Up…

Friday, May 20th, 2005

There’s a Cubs roundtable discussion over at Beyond The Boxscore with everyone’s favorite bleacher bum/Director’s Guild member, Al Yellon, and one of the biggest outside insiders in baseball, Will Carrol. The disscusion covers everything from Big Z’s pitchcounts, to who might replace Dusty, to the current Savior of the Month, Aubrey Huff.
The […]

MLB.com is now promoting MLBlogs. You can get your own webspace and access to graphcis and pictures for $4.95 a month or $49.95 a year. Apparently, Tommy Lasorda already has a blog here (whether it’s actually him writing or not remains to be seen), as does Brooks Robinson and Daron Sutton.
