Sometimes I just don’t understand

Written by , Posted in General

Today, Mark Grudzielanek was activated from the disabled list. That’s a good thing. However, I just don’t understand why we sent Jimmy Anderson down. Anderson was pitching decently and throws left-handed, which is always a plus. On top of all that, Dusty himself said that these next few days we would have very few days off so we would need to keep out pen strong. But getting rid of one of its members does nothing but mean that the others are going to need to get the call more. If that was not enough evidence, let me enlighten you on […]

Friday Five: Lesser-Known Baseball Books

Written by , Posted in General

Q & A with Chicago Tribune Writer, Rick Morrissey

Written by , Posted in General

One of my favorite reads each day is the column written by Rick Morrissey. I generally agree with his opinions on the Cubs. Recently, we had the privilege of asking Rick some questions. It’s always a great privilege to pick someone’s brain, especially when they are getting paid to do what we all love to do. We asked Rick ten questions. His responses were very well thought out and enjoyable to read. Enjoy!!! Q – Your May 26th story on W.P. Kinsella’s new book made your respect for his work clear. Among sports columnists (yourself not included, of course) which […]
