    Kimbrel pitched the 7th inning for the Iowa Cubs today - he threw 8 pitches (6 strikes) to three batters getting a fly out to center, a groundout to third and swinging K. Nice start!

    Thank you, Phil. Have you ever considered doing your own podcast? Your grasp on baseball history is fantastic.

    And 71 games in, the C-Cubs & I-Cubs are in a dead heat @ 39-32...

    CRAIG A: SS Ernie Banks and 2B Gene Baker arrived on the same day in September 1953, although Banks made his MLB game debut three days before Baker.

    i think gene baker was technically the first signed, but ernie banks was the first to suit up and play.  baker was injured when ernie made his debut.

    He only mentioned his second wife in his autobiography, Mr. Cub.  I was surprised to find out from his Wikipedia page that he had been married before Eloyce (wife #2), having read Mr. Cub back in 1971 right after it came out.  I guess when you write your autobiography, you get to put in only the parts you want to talk about.

    Banks was the first African- American Cub wasn’t he?  Was there a lot of drama with that?

    He was a hero to me growing up, and now maybe not so much. Sad and probably (?) better how things have changed. I'm sure in the 60s whatever Addison did would have never bubbled up to us fans... But thanks for the review-so-far!

    m.carpenter (STL) just got a stand up double bunting against the shift on a ball that barely got to the lip of the outfield grass.

    a little more of that from many more players would be interesting.

    another young fan took a foul ball for an injury...off the bat of castro (MIA) @STL

    hell of a loss.

    killer 9th inning drama all going LA's way.  wow.

    it says a lot that the packed house in LA was still almost all there through the last pitch of the game.

    ESPN...it's all bad, all the time.

    I'm just glad it worked out for the diarrhea girl and her date. I don't know which is worse, Arod or that fucking commercial 8 times a game.

    sitting in the dugout, it looks like kyle schwarber has an unfortunate touch of matt williams style early onset baldness coming on...or he recently got a way-too-close-on-top haircut.

    dude just turned 26 a few months ago.
