I am taking a bit of R & R (but not too much, as I still need to find a job, and grade exams), and plan on working my way into blogging shape over mid-April.

Chi Cubs 4 1 .800 -
Houston 5 2 .714 -
Milwaukee 5 2 .714 -
Cincinnati 4 2 .667 0.5
St. Louis 4 3 .571 1.0
Pittsburgh 1 7 .125 4.5

Man, does that look good or what??? Yeah it is early, but if this can't get your hopes up, what else can?

Trans. Enjoy the R&R, and lots of it. In my experience it sinks in all too quickly that there really is no closure, there is still tons of academic bullshit (job apps/grading/publications/etc.) to work through. Congrats.
.

Congrats Trans!

and sorry for getting off topic, but i have been thinking for a few days about the 4 and 5 spot in the rotation, and especially after Marshall's start last night...Does anyone see one of the AAA guys making the start in place of Jerome? Does Marshall get another start regardless of what Guzman and Hill are doing? I guess i am just anxious to see Guzman in a ML game...but i really did think that Marshall pitched well, and not to make excuses (too late), he was really getting a completely different strike zone than Ponson, and could have had a few more strikeouts imo (i just found out what that meant) and perhaps gotten out of the 5th on his own

Congratulations!

Thanks for making me sitting here as a college sophomore working on a dual major (Math and Economics) look like a nothing loser. Damn my 4.0*!

*I wish. I've toyed with the idea of Grad School, but we'll see.

Re: Southside and #5

My philosophy is that pitching is all about learning by trial and error. You make your mistakes only to learn from them. How many guys go out and dominate from game one? Very, very few. If the Cubs think Sean Marshall is their guy, you gotta give him several starts if not a whole season. Look at all the good starters in the league today. Most of the aces struggled for their first 40 or so starts in the big leagues. I'd stick with Marshall for now, he only made one or two mistakes and has a nice minor league track record, albeit in limited advanced action. You hit on the nail. Baseball has been stressing that the low strike will get called his year. Marshall got a very generous outside corner, but anything at the knees he was simply not getting. For a groundball pitcher like himself, that can potentially kill him.

I'd love to see Guzman up here soon, but Hill had a good start too. Don't count out Ryu either, he had a nice opener in Iowa. Personally, I would not touch Guzman until he shows he can stay healthy for at least a couple of months. We don't need him getting all geared up and tweak something, or even worse get all geared up and not tell someone if something is wrong.

Yeah, I am tired. I made a circular argument.

"'d love to see Guzman up here soon" ... "Personally, I would not touch Guzman until he shows he can stay healthy for at least a couple of months."

I need some sleep. Either that or start proofreading my posts.

Congrats Dr. Transmission!

My car has been slipping from second gear into third gear. Can you take a look?

Seriously though, that's great news. Good luck with the job hunt.

Congrats Trans. That's a day you'll never forget. It took about a year for it to sink in, but then it felt pretty good. If you can, try to get some relaxing in this summer before you start an intense job (if you're staying in academia). Watch the Cubs win at least a game or two a month! (I'm sorry - I need to temper my enthusiasm this week with some lowered expectations...)

I'll echo the congratulations. Be sure to list Cub Reporter on your list of publications. It will give your resumÈ a more rounded look.

Congratulations, Dr. Trans!

I recall listening to that 4/4/89 game on the radio in my office. After the last out, I stuck my head in a co-worker's office, told him what had happened, and concluded by advising him to stock up on Maalox now. That was some year.

That Mitch Williams line is classic.

Luis

Ah, I remember that fateful day in '88 like it was yesterday. Clarkson was my favorite player and the Beaneaters rivalry was intense.

Damn that management! No commitment to winning!

Well done Trans

Glad to hear you made it, Trans. Good work.

What do trans and Dr. Evil have in common?

Neither one of them spent 7 years in evil medical school to be called mister.

One thing I should point out - I'm a Ph. D., not an M.D. So technically (and legally and morally, I guess) I'm not going to be doing any surgury, any time soon.

Thanks, everyone, for your support and encouragement over the last two years. Every little bit is important, and I'm thankful for it.

I, too, remember that Mitch Williams game. Absolute classic.....

Indeed, congratulatins, Trans. If it's not too personal, do you mind me asking what your doctorate is in? Just curious, don't feel that you have to reply if you'd rather not say.

Congrats Trans, from an ABD (20 years now!).

Forgive the weak tranisition, and also forgive if it's already been mentioned, but has anybody read "Fantasyland"? A good read for fellow fantasy geeks, in it, he marvels at the info available on the 'net including how there's a site where a guy analyzes every transaction. Congrats Ruz on the mention.

If I was PhD, by now I'd have a figured a work around for the dreaded double post.

Cheers Trans and good luck in the fledgling job market. Now that you've freed up some time you'll probably want to pay more attention to Rod Beck's America where I'm currently rolling you up:).

Congrats Trans - just remember to keep things in perspective. Looking forward to a contribution to this blog know that you will have some time to relax.

Thanks again, guys. Andrew - I'm a historian of science. (yes, we have our own department, for some odd reason. We're historians that deal with the development, dissemination and ramifications of knowledge about the natural world.) My specialty is the social and biological sciences and their interaction with social reform movements. I also do a bit of the history of our cultural fetish for statistics.

It's not so much that I want to keep my identity a mystery, as it is that it's not helpful, perhaps even damaging, for prospective employers to think of me as a "blogger." (What's so bad about being a blogger!?!?!? sheeesssshh...)

Hey Trans congrats - now maybe you can appear in chat again.

In other news - I'm pretty sure I'd have remembered if Sammy hit the first of his 66 home runs in 19 EIGHTY eight. 98 dude.
