Well, Cubs, how 'bout picking off these next 4 games?

Ahhh, just a little something to make you smile.


aaron judge passes mark "i lied about roiding and tried to destroy the careers of various sportswriters yet people still hired me to coach younger players" mcgwire for the rookie HR record with HRs #49 and #50.

Not that you're bitter.

He was first hired by LaRussa, who, along with Joe Torre, benefited the most from steroid cheats. Torre's list: Clemens, Pettitte, A-Rod, Giambi. Probably more that I am forgetting. Both men now work for MLB, in part to protect the integrity of the game. The players are kept out of the HOF, but their managers who benefited from their cheating go in. What the hell?

i can think of a dozen+ other things that have pissed me off about this game more than mcgwire's roid escapades, but having a slew of guys who are financially set before the age of 40 try to destroy the careers of people who's jobs intersect their world is screwed up. i can deal with the cheaters. i can deal with the liars. however, the guys that tried to take others down to cover themselves, naw...especially those who don't have the financial security or resources of their attacker. that's not cool on a level beyond the game.

So how do you REALLY feel about Ryan Braun?

He is terrible and deserves every last bit of booing in his own ballpark he gets

oddly enough (or not), it was just a week or 2 ago a few of us on a TCR post piled onto braun for this very thing. it was not very positive concerning braun. poor guy.

TIM: Nice motion graphic! I kept trying to click on one of the logos to "shoot" the birds. Guess there is no interactive element (or javascript) which is fine. I just wanted to shoot "em!

I tried the same thing when I first saw it too, E-man!!

Thanks E-Man.
Hopefully I'll at least be able to animate one bird being picked off at a time.
But interactive is a skill set from.. not me. 

Happiness is watching Addison Russell dive-kick a plate of nachos out of a Cardinals fans' hands.

The Cardinals domination of the NL Central was 24 years old.

What a thing of beauty tonight's game is so far.

    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.

    e.sogard pitching...the highlight of the last 2 games, easy...

    3 popouts...threw mid/high 60s batting practice lobs with some sink

    he's scoreless through 2ip in his career.  david ross career pitching comps...

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


  • crunch 15 hours 46 min ago (view)

    yeah...we can go ahead and send cory abbott back down...

    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.


  • crunch 1 day 11 hours ago (view)

    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.


  • Dolorous Jon Lester 1 day 11 hours ago (view)

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


  • crunch 1 day 11 hours ago (view)

    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.
