Happy 4th of July, Cub Fans.

I'm in a cabin in the Great North Woods.
There's wifi at a nearby lodge, but it's kind of a hike.
But the really cool thing is... AM radio at night.
You can hear stations from other states.
Like AM 670.
It's magic.
One time someone explained to me why AM radio works like that, but I can't remember the deets.
Anyway, last night the game FINALLY came in.
Kinda scratchy and broken up, but... THERE'S PAT HUGHES!
I got to hear the bottom of the 9th.
Thus the gif. 
Happy 4th, everyone.

And remember, it HAS to get better.
Now go back to Charlie's post, because I stepped on it (SORRY)!

Anywhere near Grand Marais, MN? I-Cubs are 31-14 away from home & 18-23 @ Principal Park. Is there a better road record in all of baseball this summer? Sure beats the sheet outta the C-Cub roadshow...

Well done sir!!! Happy Fourth to all

Happy 4th to you all.

    The Cubs have looked pretty April for the last week.

    I'm pretty sure I've seen enough of Arrieta and Davies to last me the rest of the summer.

    same...only it's coffee...which isn't helping.  yesterday's trash game got a sequel.

    Just wait til the 2030 season, those kids will be entering their prime then. Look out NL Central!

    im starting to think spending 12.6m of payroll on davies/arrietta while trading darvish away for davies and a slew of kids that dont even make the cubs top 10 prospect list wasn't a good idea.

    oh yeah, cubs gave SD money in that deal, too...that's even better.

    The Cubs have purchased the contract of RHP Justin Shafer (ex-MIA) from Kansas City (American Association) and he has been assigned to AAA Iowa.

    he -really- needs to cue into this is a cubs broadcast and not a national/neutral broadcast.

    dude...don't get excited about marlins 3-run homers.

    lot of people wanted him when len left.  he's got a long game calling history, but not too much for baseball.  he did host "baseball tonight" for ESPN for a quite a while, so the game isn't a mystery to him.

    i find him a bit boring/dry.  some people like that he has that oldschool "announcer voice" thing going on.

    He's uhhh.. not very good at it. Glad he wasn't the hire for the main role.

    wow...chris myers calling the cubs game for some reason (boog out for the MIA series).

    he is a marquee talent, but he's not been used to call a game as far as i know.

    also, zach davies looks like a kid in pajamas in those dark blue "wrigleyville" uniforms.
