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?

  • I love winning! It's, like, better than losing?

  • You lollygag the ball around the infield. You lollygag your way down to first. You lollygag in and out of the dugout. You know what that makes you? Larry!

  • Its too bad Warren didnt get to pitch. He would have saved us.

  • Whoa -- that Contreras play in the 8th looked too much like a "Schwarber" -- nearly crashed into the wall going full speed, with Heyward doing the same.

    New rule: if you are a catcher playing LF, and find yourself sprinting after a fly ball in the gap -- stop, let the CF go after it and get ready to play it off the wall.

  • Cubs have no spark and no life. Pretty boring to watch these days.

  • I thought trips to Miami were supposed to be fun. This one sucked.

    The bottom half of the bullpen now turns close games into blowout losses. Not good.

    Once Fowler went to the DL, the team went into the tank. Wonder if he'll get any love this offseason? Probably not.

  • 6IP, 2ER. The last one scored because of another botched Zobrist DP turn.

    And now, a bad throw by KB. Sloppy.

  • What is it with Hammel always starting well and sucking after a couple months?

    The E-Man 19 hours 5 min ago view
  • Ahhh...sad. Lke a few of you here, I saw him play during the '69-'71 seasons. He was the "hot Zobrist" for the club in August/September of '69 while everyone else was fizzling out...

  • I predict: "They will play hard and if they give the same effort every day, they'll win a lot of games."

  • OK, boys -- find a way to win today.

  • There's some BA is missing too, here's all signing bonus BA doesn't have some:

    -6 Hockin $241,000 (slot price), 7 Cruz $75,000 (saved $110,00), 8 Ridlings $120,000 (saved $53,800), 9 Robinson $30,000 (saved $132,300), so far the Cubs have saved an extra $297,100

  • Also -- despite losing 6 of their last 10, the Cubs picked up a game on both STL and PIT during that period. Weird, given that they swept PIT and were swept by STL.

  • Also, I'd like to know if there are numbers to back up my suspicion that there are a lot more fast starts than late June romps. This seems like a time where everybody not named Willson Contreras is looking a little tired and/or banged up a bit.

    For once, the Cubs got off to a fast start. Seems like I've been waiting for that for 50 years.Everybody is really gunning for this team, too. It's their playoffs.
