Have fun!


The time has come for a centrist political party. Rational Americans are not comfortable with extreme views to the left or to the right, and our current parties have no intentions of ever abandoning their ever increasing distance from sane, reasonable thinking.

Looking forward to Chicago's holy trinity--Cubs, blues, and deep dish pies!

It's not often that we run ourselves out of an inning but we just did.

This rookie pitching for Cubs has apparently been lights out since they called him up.  Given how much we struggle with no-name pitchers as it is lets hope we get to him early.

They struggle against pitchers who don't leave fastballs over the plate.

It was great to see Schoop take some pitches to start off his at-bat instead of flailing at off-speed stuff in the dirt and getting behind 0-2.  Big improvement over yesterday.

Thorne needs to stop saying things like "And Hardy's gonna score!"  ... when its gonna be a bang-bang play at the plate.

Pitchers who can't finish guys off really annoy me.

He's done it several times recently.  Not sure why, guess he's just getting a bit over-excited.

What a bunch of cheap BS hits.  Problem is walking the lead-off guy.

Walking the lead off guy then taking forever to finish off Sweeney.

It really pays to have a strikeout pitch.
