I wonder what the Cubs headlines will be in July, 2015?
I have no idea what's going to happen next year.
But I'm fairly certain that early in the season the lineup will have Starlin Castro, Anthony Rizzo, and Kris Bryant.
That's not a whole team by any stretch, but those guys together sort of makes me go...hmmm.
Next year, now there's no way anybody's thinking about actually winning winning, but...hmmm.
If Theo Epstein has sort of... the Cubs have been like watching the pot of water, and next year I'd say it'll start to boil.
Who knows - Baez...Alcantara...Vizcaino... some of those guys might bubble up.
Maybe the headlines in July 2015 won't be about who the Cubs can get for some guy Chris Bosio polished into something new and shiny.
Mabye it'll be more about "gelling" and "nucleus" and stuff like that.
It's up to the kids, really.
Anyway, somebody gave me a chiclet the other day and I looked at it and thought man... wouldn't be hard to put a little blue W on there, would it?
Then, when you're walking out of Wrigley after another Cub victory, somebody could hand you a little pack.
It almost makes sense at Wrigley Field, right?
Hopefully Der Kaiser won't be doing this until December
So, yes, I have been quoting your, "mediocre pitcher" label all year in jest - good or bad.
He has been pretty filthy against the Cards, and this is the game they need to "steal".
I am hoping against hope that Pedro Strop only sees the mound if the Cubs are up 8 in a game.
Gordo's lede today:
*checks pulse again*
