Ron Santo statue to be unveiled today.
It's Ron Santo Day.
Today at 5:30 outside the right field gate at Wrigley, the Ron Santo statue will be unveiled.
The team will be out there along with the Santo and Ricketts family and any other member of the Chicago Cubs family.
People will speak, maybe even Kerry Wood, and it's sure to be pretty emotional.
So take a minute today to think about Ron as a Cub and Cub Fan.
I don't know for sure, but I'd turn on WGN AM 720 about 5 today and see if they cover it live, and leave it on thru the game because you'll want to hear Pat Hughes do the game tonight.
And man do I hope they did something with the statue along the lines of the Billy Williams and Ernie Banks statues rather than get all arty like the Harry one.
Ha. Saw that. Pretty close.
So supposedly Schwarber was just the 1st Cubs player to hit a ball into Lake Michagan
Pretty good pitch by Cahill that Cruz hit, though throwing a breaking ball in the dirt seems like a better option in retrospect.
Cubs need to keep the foot on the gas at the plate. 4 runs won't be enough.
Hey, Johann, don't blame yourself. It's obviously me. He hates bro-- wait, nothing, nevermind.
HAHAHA this is gold.

Mornington_Crescent has left.
johann: he hates carlos and I both!
I was at the bank drive through during that strike out and yelled so loud I think I scared multiple people in other cars
bullpen vs 5 innings (6 if you count the 4th)...that should make for an eventful rest of the game.
Don't think I've ever seen a crowd go that crazy for a K to end the 4th inning.
This is going to be a long, crazy, afternoon.
Turn off the TV, and good things happen. back to work.
Folks, the local watering hole calls.
I LOVE YOU
Was there, MC ignored me, left >:(
That was a bad first inning.
