TCR Friday Notes

...where I have nothing exciting to mention.  


UPDATE: If you wish to endorse the buy Wrigley plan at the bottom of this article, send an email with your full name to Mr. Lunchbuckett.

- Tickets for individual games at Wrigley went on sale today. A look through the comments of the previous thread indicate it's as hellacious as ever. Once the home of Bleacher Bums and nuns from DeKalb, it's now just a scalpers heaven. Sigh.


 - Lou Piniella seems to be seeing the same things that our pal Arizona Phil is, suggesting that the Fuk might end up batting third with Soriano and Theriot at the top of the order and Lee and Ramirez following him.
- You can also listen to a Lou's appearance on the Mike North show from this morning. I haven't had a chance to listen to it, but I believe he talks a little about the batting order, the closer job, and Hendry working on some deals...with all the vagueness you should expect. 

- If you're still interested in joining a low-key fantasy league with some fellow TCR readers, drop me an email. We already filled up one league, but I have quite a few names that are still interested and would love to open up a second league. 

- I received an email from someone calling themselves "Joe Lunchbuckett" (how fantastic would that be if that was his real name?). Mr. Lunchbuckett is taking it upon himself to try and organize the Cubs masses into buying Wrigley Field. I don't believe there's any relation to the fan effort to buy the Cubs, but I thought I'd give him his 15 minutes. You can view his press release by following the link (Google Docs is fantastic by the way). 

Enjoy the weekend...

  • Can we please stop pointing out how ridiculous it is to panic and start panicking in earnest?

    I think they're gonna be OK.

  • RAISIN: All I know is that Oscar de la Cruz is still shut down, and I don't know what his prognosis is, or what the plan is going forward.

  • Remember just two weeks ago, when "all" they had to do was play .500 ball the rest of the season and coast into the playoffs?

  • Well I guess if pitchers can keep working the edges of the plate to perfection it will be a long season. But that doesn't seem likely. Rizzo finally, fully, snapping out of it would help.

  • If I didn't believe in coincidences (or science), I would apologize to Gordon Downie--one of my favorites. Sad news about a great talent.

  • O&B: Cease was apparently working on his off-speed pitches in his first & thrd innings, because in his second inning of work he just blew the D'backs away with high-velocity gas (that's when he hit 99-100 and struck out the side).

  • Wow, Lyin' CTSteve? He was just BEGGING for my endorsement last year!  Lame!

  • 1. I did not say the thing I insisted that Trans write down and attribute to me, or it was taken out of context.

    2. Trans and his "roast" (aka, a Salisbury steak TV dinner by Swanson) are very low energy.

    3. Make TCR great again.
