Welcome Back

Written by , Posted in General

I suppose it’s about time for me to get something written before I lose all of my readers. My apologies go out to all that have stopped by only to be greeted by the same post leftover from Tuesday. It’s been a busy week at school as we prepare the kids to take the EOG’s next week. I’ll be extremely glad when those things are over and done with. In the meantime, I’ve been able to watch all the games, but just haven’t had the energy or desire to put my thoughts in the world of cyberspace, Until Now. Maddux […]

Stupid Night Games

Written by , Posted in General

I was so tired last night after the game that I just went to bed. So now I have 5 minutes before I have to leave for work to put my thoughts on the site. So, here they are in abbreviated form. Macias was in the lineup (always a bad thing) Neifi Perez was hitting .727 before the game in his last 3 games. Who needs Nomar? It seemed to me that Paul Wilson balked about 30 times. He would a runner on and would not come to a full 1 second pause before throwing. I was always taught that […]

The Debut of Mr. Sly

Written by , Posted in General

I am not happy with the series against the Pirates. This was a series that the Cubs could have easily won. Instead, we get a rainout, a blown save and a win. Before the game, Dusty was asked about the closer role and had this to say. It’s time to make some changes. At least until whatever is happening stops happening and we get it straight. Right now, we have to make some changes. It’s not very pleasant on us, or him, or Cubs fans, or anybody. Here are the thoughts from todays game: Kerry Wood was less than dominant […]

God Dang Cubs

Written by , Posted in General

I am so frustrated with the team. I never thought I would say this, but I am officially Anti Baker. He has no business being the Cubs manager anymore. I’m tired of his crazy pinch hitting decisions. I’m tired of his bullpen decisions. I’m tired of his pathetic excuse for managing. The time has come to make a change. It’s time to get a guy with some fire that will challenge his guys to meet their expectations. As much as I hate to say it, the guy over on the Southside is doing just what we need. Take this for […]

That’s a winner

Written by , Posted in General

One of my least favorite things about baseball is the rain delay. I turned on the TV tonight ready to watch some baseball only to find that it was raining in St. Louis. Once the game got started, I began my new routine of jotting down my thoughts as it played out in front of me. Here are the observations from last night. Be Honest, were you worried when it was 2 outs and the king trotted out of the bullpen to close it? Like I said before, “All Hail The King” I had planned on bashing Nomar’s poor fielding […]
