Murton Interview

Wednesday, October 26th, 2005

There’s a great interview up on with our favorite redhead, Matt Murton. I am liking this guy more and more all the time. It’s obvious he has the ability, but he also has the right mindset, drive, and ambition. It’s the kind of attitude that puts the ‘professional’ in ‘professional […]

AFL - Solar Sox 8-10

Tuesday, October 25th, 2005

It’s tough to win both sides of a double header, especially when your starting pitcher gives up 7 runs in the second inning, two of which were unearned thanks to a fielding error. Mesa lost the back half of the twin bill tonight, 12-6. It wasn’t for a lack of trying by Cubs […]

You Knew Something Was Going To Happen

Tuesday, October 25th, 2005

“It was one guy who acted like a 12-year-old, who slapped her upside the head,” said Biggio. “I’m not going to sit here and hold all the Chicago fans accountable for this for one guy who was acting like an idiot.”
Spoken like a man who has played all of his games on the north […]

Cubs 2006 Schedule

Monday, October 24th, 2005

Al Yellon apparently has the official schedule for 2006 now via Vineline. He has updated his schedule with the posted times as well.
What’s interesting is that the Cubs spend the last month of the season facing San Fran, Pittsburgh, Atlanta, LA, Cinncy, Philly, Milwaukee, and Colorado. Not exactly the most feared teams […]

AFL - Solar Sox 7-9

Monday, October 24th, 2005

The Mesa Solar Sox squeaked out a 6-5 win today against the Peoria Saguaros (which are those big-ass cactus you they have decorated the southwest with in lieu of actual trees).
LF Matt Murton moved back to the 5th spot today and went 1-3 with an RBI, a walk, and 2 strikeouts. He walked in […]

Inside The Bleachers

Monday, October 24th, 2005

Here’s a link to a cool shot through the doorway in the ivy showing Sammy in the batting cage under the bleachers. I knew that they were down there but I had never seen a picture of it before.
Here’s another with a great shot of the Bears playing football at Wrigley in 1963.

AFL - Solar Sox 6-9

Sunday, October 23rd, 2005

The Mesa Solar Sox lost another game yesterday, but at least this one wasn’t a blowout. Mesa hosted the best team so far this season in the AFL, the Phoenix Desert Dogs, and were threatening to pull out a win with the bases loaded in the bottom of the ninth, but a double play […]

LF Matt Murton again hit 5th and again went 1-4 but he made the most of his one hit. With 2 outs and 2 on in the top of the […]
