Dear Bats-




Thank you!

Murton AND Cedeno starting at the same time.
Revolving leadoff men.

Pheh! 2006 all over again.

Wow -- Cedeno is, unfortunately, back to his old self. 4-for-22 in June, K-ing on a regular basis. C'mon, Ronnie -- remember the good old days of April/May.


attaway aramis!

win streak win streak

...and Kerry Wood is now 4-1----the most wins he's had since 2004 when he made 22 starts and won 8.


Linebrink: "God damnit!"

Hawk: *Silence*

Cubs fans: Woo!

Gotta love it.

In the words of Bruce Wolf, "Boom Shaka Laka!"

Nice way to start the weekend

Anybody revive Ron Santo yet?

home wins...

I caught the replay on WGN with Hawk and DJ, they replayed 4 times.

No sound from Hawk and DJ

ALl you can hear is the "Go CUBs Go" song sung by fans.

After 30 seconds of silence, Hawk curtly says "will be back"

Go to commericial.

Yeah, I think Uecker said it better last year after ARam's walkoff vs. the Brew Crew. "Here's the pitch...Ramirez just won the game for the Cubs..gone." Remember that?

Grab some bench, Harrelson.

I love A-Ram walk-offs.

  • KB 0-5 with 8 LOB. Really? He is torturing me with 99 RBI. He is also a very different hitter at home vs. road. I suspect most young hitters are.

  • Greinke still in for the 8th. 3 up, 3 down. After 8. 108 pitches, ERA still at 1.66 according to mlb boxscore and he's in line for a 19th win.

  • Greinke 95 pitches through 7. Gives up one run (solo HR to Hedges). ERA at 1.66. Doubt that they will let him give up 5 runs in the 8th.

    Dodgers ahead 2-1.

  • 96 wins with one game to go. Who woulda thunk it.

    Cubs 96 wins have clinched a better record than any AL team and the NL West/East division winners too.

  • cubs win, pirates lose...

  • the curse is now yours.

  • cog a HR away from the cycle after a single in the 6th.

  • Hendricks: 15 up, 15 down.

  • he strongly separates his post-playing career from his playing career, though he loves to visit the barrier of player and fan. many ex-players don't put up this barrier.

    he's not interested in going back to the clubhouse or pretty much anything field/game related, but he'll grab a ticket and observe with the fans and visit ex players on "neutral" ground. he's written 3 pieces for the new yorker and other pieces elsewhere. i remember one photo/bio piece he did, but don't remember where i read it (years ago).

  • ?
    I find your comments rather obtuse. He recognized he didn't want to pursue baseball anymore and went back to school to learn how to become a better writer - opening up a new chapter in his life.

    I don't know where you find a "sad disconnection" because he is writing about his experiences? He pursued a ball career for a long time so no doubt there is some meloncholy in his tone, but I just don't know what the fuck you are talking about.

  • he has an almost sad disconnection from the game based on his writings. even though he's "been there" (no matter how much of a minor role) he doesn't seem to feel like he belongs or deserves to belong in the boy's club.

    he seems to go to great lengths to enjoy the game from an arm's length while occasionally getting close enough for a high-5 from those who affirm him that he belongs.

  • I read that guy's article about why he quit baseball and it was really well done too. In terms of Rizzo, I have seen multiple references to how this is Rizzo's team just as much as Madden's and it makes that pick up that much better that we have someone that is not only a great player but a leader and all around great guy (been reading about all the charity work he does too). There is really nothing not to like about Rizzo.

  • Nice article on Rizzo

    Written by ex teammate

  • JD concurred with Ariettas second at bat

  • Hey AZ, Chesny Young made raised some eyebrows with his minor league season. What do you think of him?

  • AZ Phil, why are Beeler and Parker in Mesa? Are they still recovering from injury?
