They can’t keep doing this to us

Wednesday, May 18th, 2005

Today, we saw the Cubs rally yet again in the 9th inning to produce another one run, come from behind victory - but htis time Big Derrek Lee didn’t contribute to the mix. In fact, a day after going 4-4, he went 0-4 with 2 Ks. To be fair, Kip Wells was dealing […]

Signs of things to come?

Dusty got the dreaded vote of confidence from McPhail today.
Yea, that should always make a manager feel comfortable…

I said it before and I’ll say it again…

D Lee for MVP!!
4-4, 4 RBI, 2 homers with the second coming with one on and one out in the top of the ninth. He was actually a triple away from the cycle, but I’d much rather have the game winning home run. This man is stepping up and stepping up in a […]

Another Macias?

Tuesday, May 17th, 2005

Al Yellon is reporting that the Cubs are signing Enrique Wilson to a contract for middle infield help. Wilson was last seen being sent down to the minors by the Orioles. This seems like a Dusty thing to me. Perhaps the speculation Hendry pulling more of the strings lately was a […]

Won’t You Be My Neighbor?

Sunday, May 15th, 2005

Instead of lament on the breakdown of Carlos in the 4th last night (not enough water? blisters?), we bring you an nice feel good piece, pointed out by our friends at Chicagoist. Apparently, every year, the Cubs try to make good with the local community and host Neighbor Appreciation Day. The Cubs hold […]

It Doesn’t Get Much Closer Than That

Friday, May 13th, 2005

I was about one foot away from throwing my iBook across the room. You can’t tell me that everyone watching this game didn’t think that A) Remlinger was gonna walk the bases loaded and B) Guillen was gonna take Wellemeyer deep. Luckily, most everything hit deep tonight stayed in the ballpark, but Guillen’s […]

This seems about right…

From everybody’s favorite Korean baseball cartoon strip.

Just becasue they’ve done it for a century…

doesn’t mean it’s the right way to do it.
I believe that when a starter leaves before five with the lead and his team wins, it is up to the offical scorer’s discrection who gets the W. It should be this way in all cases. Mark Prior deserved the win today, not the guy […]

D Lee -

for MVP!!
They had a little true/false bit on BBTN where the question was “Will D Lee be MVP?” and the answers were, of course, false, because Albie Pujols has been cristened by Pope Gammons as the new savior of the league now that Barry’s AWOL. Barry won all those MVP’s recently not becasue he […]

Looking Ahead

Wednesday, May 11th, 2005

The Tribune is projecting Big Z, Maddux, and Prior for the White Sox series in a week and a half. If the five man rotation holds up (and who knows with Wood), the same trio would start the Boston series in June.
It’s impossible to predict the Red Sox rotation at this point […]
