Edwin Jackson rumor interruption.

Hi.
Just a little Edwin Jackson interruption here.


This sketchbook watercolor is from 2003.
From the day the Cubs lost to the Sox 6-7 at Wrigley.
Matt Clement was on the mound for 3.1 innings and gave up 11 hits and 7 freaking runs.
The other guy was 24 year old Mark Buerhle who would go 6.1 innings and continue tossing 230.1 innings that year.
Did you know he's never not thrown for less than 200 innings for 12 years straight?
He won that day and ruined mine.
I listened to it on the radio, doing stuff in the back yard, when my daughter came out with a poem.
That part really happened.
Of course I didn't really say, "So what."
I just think that way for laughs.
In a couple weeks it'll be the 10th year I've been doing these drawings.

But I'm still all in on The Plan there, Theo.
You grow these kids and I'll get more paper.

Okay, back to Edwin Jackson...

    Throws strikes like Chatwood.  Holds runners like Darvish.

    This smells like a Chatwood game.

    phew...kimbrel is fresh off taking a half season away from the game, but im ready for a bit less drama out of his appearances.

    lorenzen is low-key one of the most exciting players in the game, seriously.  he's fun on the mound, at the plate, and baserunning.

    Well that settles it: Lorenzen is a better base runner than Brach. Brach haint got nuttin’

    rizzo's power outage has been a little alarming.  it seems to be bad luck more than anything obvious, though.

    Near warning track power Rizzo not nearly as fun as home run derby Rizzo

    More rare sighting in last few weeks: a Descalso plate appearance or a Rizzo home run?  Descalso PA wins by an eyelash

    Descalso actually had one his better at bats (even though he should have been rung up on a missed strike three) — a line drive one hopper to the shortstop

    they're celebrating the 69 cubs at the park tonight.

    they had a bunch of vets (led by billy williams) do the 7th along with a video edited together of ernie banks + ron santo singing the 7th so they could all sing along.  great touch.

    montgomery is going to be used as a SP for KC.  good for him.

    also, a.mills has calmed down into a hell of a nice welcome back start.  he's back on my xmas card list.
