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?

  • Cubs optioned Justin Grimm to Iowa after the game. No corresponding roster move announced yet, but it could be Brian Matusz.

  • Marlins with a quick 4 spot vs Jaime Garcia. Osuna HR the highlight.

  • Brian Matusz, supposedly he has attachments. Hope it's not like an email with a virus attached.

  • One thing to remember about Chapman -- he can be magic, but his ERA is higher than Rondon's this year. 100+ mph is fun, but I'd love to see a few more sliders. I think he enjoys the crowd reaction from 103 mph.

  • "Diamondbacks designated RHP Josh Collmenter for assignment."

    aww...he was my 2nd favorite crapballer. his control issues are rather severe at the moment.

  • Wow -- Chapman gives up a hit and everything completely caves in. I think the Cubs went into collective shock.

    Stolen base with the pitcher holding the ball, WP that should have been caught or blocked, then Russell with a 2-out error on a routine play. Cubs handed them 2 runs. Throw in a Fowler bobble and it was a mess.

    Hopefully, that is all out of their system now -- let's get a W tomorrow.

  • First time I've ever seen a base running slump -- he's made some poor decisions recently, but I thought it was a great idea to try to score there -- it's not like Heyward was going to get a 2-out hit against a LHP. Sliding feet-first into home is probably the safe (ugh) way to go, but it's hard to get the foot on the plate.

  • Yup. He got squeezed (twice) on the first walk, but, when you have one-run lead and the other team is trying to make an out -- take the out.

  • Wasn't fun!

  • Clearly the Cubs need to clear out the farm and trade for another closer

    Where's Ed Lynch when you need him?
