Mets Monster Blew Me Away

It was only but a few days ago that I was blown away by the Mets Monster but, then the Cubs blew away the Mets Monster.  However, the monster thing blew up on me when the Mets put the Cubs away in the last of 3.  That blew me away. I needed a day off…..or …

Basking In Memories

Today, I’m playing ‘Remember When.’  My youth.  I still have some youth in me, and I’m basking in it, today. A whole bunch of years have passed since I was dwelling in the L.A. area.  There are many remembrances but, one that stands out was listening to Dodger baseball. Some of the players in my earliest …

A Marine Omen At Wrigley?

Cubs had the game at 3-0 after 6 on Tuesday night. By the time the 7th inning was over, Jason Hammel was out of the game, and the bullpen tried to make it interesting for the fin stripes of Miami, yielding 2.  Now a 3-2 ballgame. Chapman put the fire out, as the game progressed …

How Do I Explain Last Night

How does anybody explain last night? The game was a jaw dropper.  The ‘Wizard of Cubs,’ Manager Joe Maddon designed a few spells late in the game, and each participant played it out perfectly. We look at the Cubs behind to the Mariners 6-0 very early on 3 HRs given up by Cubs Starter Brian Matusz. …

The Law of Gravity

The Law of Gravity.  It is what holds everything in order, and gravity is no different for baseball.  Even more so for the Cubs performance this season. Gravity dictates you can only fall so far.  There is a limit to falling.   Based on all the mathematical equations available, gravity allows the Cubs to drop only …

Stretch

The Cubs bench is on a seventh inning stretch as run production is running low, and the Bullpen has now become effective in holding the opposition back. The hitter’s stretch seems to be the determining factor as the Cubs begin to lose some ground in the w-l column. Jason Hammel had a very good starting …

Walking On Water

Junior Lake hit a homerun in Miami a couple of games ago, and did some showboating to celebrate.  A purposeful flip of the bat,  Then, he floated around the bases with a dance in half time. I’m not so sure the entire incident was not a combination of influences including a momentary memory lapse, naivete, …

I’ll Take It

Overall, I’m pretty happy with Cubs play in their last 6 games.  Who wouldn’t be?  5- 1 in the w-l column. What if they did this every 6 games?  Anybody would take that.  No.  Everybody would take that. It’s been a great home stand but, back to reality as the Cubs move on to Pittsburgh …

…And Now There’s Four

Without stepping on anyone’s toes, Hector Rondon keeps his own toes on the bag as a potential Marlin base runner is not really a base runner at all after a review, and call reversal. Safe to out. Cubs had the game all wrapped up in the 9th until the Marlins swam to a tied ball …
