Len & Bob Love, Peeing Your Pants, Former Prospects, Etc

Written by , Posted in General

About Last Night Reason # 487 why I love Len & Bob – Don’t know if you caught the game on WGN yesterday, but early in the game, C.B. Bucknor caught two balls off the shoulder in a matter of minutes and was obviously shaken by the experience. Len made the comment that he still needed to jump right back in there and call balls and strikes, which is a tall order. Bob, rather than replying sympathetically like a former catcher may, simply said that under normal circumstances calling balls and strikes is a tall order for Bucknor. Roll on […]

The 13 Man Staff Strikes Again

Written by , Posted in Media Releases

Sometimes I just don’t understand the decisions made. Reed Johnson to the DL and Jeff Stevens to the big club. The only thing I can think of is that Stevens was still in town and Fuld couldn’t get here in time. The media release is after the jump.

Catchers Galore, Wells for ROY, and Yahoo Error

Written by , Posted in General

About Last Night For once, perhaps an injury won’t be that big a deal for this team. Admittedly, I enjoy watching Reed Johnson play, and I think he has been a huge addition for this team, but at the same time, I don’t worry about him being out for the next month. I have no doubt that Sam Fuld can do the job in a platoon with Kosuke until Reed comes back. By that time, the rosters will have expanded and both should have a role on this active roster. On the whole, not the end of the world if […]

Cubs roll, Johnson breaks foot

Written by , Posted in General

Today the Cubs totally annihilated the Astros and took the lead with a decisive 12-0 win over the Astros.  It’s hard to say what was more dominant, the Cubs hitting or the pitching of Randy Wells; Mitch Atkins came in for mop-up action in the 9th and every single Cubs bench player saw action. Lost to the Cubs today is center fielder Reed Johnson, who broke a foot on a foul tip.  Johnson will miss an estimated 4-6 weeks.  Expect Sam Fuld to return to the Cubs roster – Cubs catcher Koyie Hill is still pulling marathon man action behind […]
