Today in Cubs History: 12-13

12-13-1999 - Traded Richard Negrette to the Baltimore Orioles. Received Augie Ojeda. 12-13-1996 - Signed Kevin Tapani as a free agent. 12-13-1995 - Signed Rob Dibble as a free agent. Not much to mention, today. Tapani won 19 games for the 1998 Cubs, in spite of a 4.85 era. Rob Dibble never made the club, mercifully.

Kevin Tapani...1998...1-0 over the Braves in Game 2 of the NLDS heading into the 9th. JAVIER F**** LOPEZ.

Lack of bullpen still haunts us.

I seem to remember Jeff Blauser playing a key roll in that 1998 game. I don't remember what it was however. did he get thrown out stealing or make an error?

With the winning run on third and one out, Blauser struck out and "The Dandy Little Glove Man" Mickey Morandini was thrown out trying to steal.
