Happy St. Pat's Day. As in Hughes.

After the season of the Bear
There are Hawks games and Bulls games to spare
But you can't wait for the day
When you hear Pat Hughes say,
"Chicago Cubs baseball is on the air"

(Sorry if I got a little deep there.)

Happy St. Pat's, everyone!

I see Pat is wearing his away golden Hawaiian shirt with the green shamrocks and the orange sherbet pants with well ironed pleats.

Isn't everybody?

Cubs vs Rangers on MLB network...NOW!!!!!!

tmzcubreporter update...

greg maddux is getting noticably fat. it's weird.

he's always had some of the most horrible eating habits of any MLB'r, but it seems his metabolism (or workout ethic) is slowing.

...and ninja cut his 16-year-old-from-philly facial hair. derrek holland is working on year 3 of trying to grow a mustache...he's about 1/2 way there.

i cheated and looked at the box score...and i know it's spring...but casey weathers needs to find his way off the 40man roster asap...

3/11/12 Chicago Cubs outrighted Casey Weathers to Iowa Cubs.

and it was even a front-page topic post on tcr, doh...my last 2 weeks have been filled with mostly non-baseball related alcohol and sun.

any box scores(or comments) on the minor leaguers since they started games yesterday?

  • 5 HR in his last 5 games (3, 1 run...1, 2 run)

    sure, 3 HR were in colorado, but 2 were in night games in SD. that evens out somehow.

  • my gawd...that castillo-to-bryant pickoff was a thing of beauty. the knock on him in the minors being slow out of the crouch is looking less like a thing.

  • real shame I missed this week's episode of The Crunch Reporter.

    It's highly unusual.

    It does matter a little.

    It matters much less than you think.

  • four winds field is awesome. it's crazy how minor league parks have "grown up" since the 80s/90s and that park was one of the late-80s models that showed a low-capacity ballpark could look like you're at something other than a highschool baseball game.

  • On another topic....I returned to South Bend last night for the 2nd time this season (still haven't tried either the deep-fried mac & cheese sandwich nor "The Porknado", as the drive home is over an hour and that could get ugly), and was pleasantly surprised to find D. Underwood pitching in a rehab start. He looked good -- although, to be fair, these are low-A hitters -- fastball consistently at 94-95 (if the SB scoreboard is to be believed -- several pitches were clocked in the 30s...) and with good location.

  • he gains nothing, no advantage, no saving of resources, nothing...there is not a cost/benefit tradeoff...him letting the running game go on around him for others to control isn't gaining him an advantage elsewhere. it's putting him at a disadvantage even if it's not cashed in with a run.

  • And out of respect for the rest of TCR, I'm done on this. I'm sure I'm not the only one in the other camp, but time to let it go. (Until the next Lester start. I kid.)

  • He is putting himself at a disadvanage. But how much of one relative to the rest of his game? He's not Justin Germano -- he's inarguably one of the best SPs in baseball, issue or not. It would be more of thing to discuss ad nauseum if it constantly caused him to give up runs and lose games. But it doesn't.
