If 2020 were a baseball player, it would be Steve Garvey.

You know, the Padres have always sort of held a special place in my baseball heart. 
They're that chunk of burnt fat off an Italian beef I got at some bar on Lincoln that stuck in my artery since I watched that Garvey homer in 1984.
You'd think it might be getting better after all these years, but now with this Yu Darvish trade to Garvey's old team to clear some money?

Tums won't help.

We knew change was coming, but whatever, man.
2020 sucks.

Baseball is back (for optimists).

I believe we're all optimists at heart or the being a Cubs Fan thing falls apart.
But there's a tug of war illustrated here that's happening, too.
Yes, we're all thrilled that baseball is back. 
I may weep when I hear Pat Hughes' voice on the transistor out by the grill. 
But also, I can't help thinking that Lucy's holding that football and telling me to kick.

Here's hoping it all actually happens. 

Sunday Funnies. You can't spell "HADER" without "HR".

Brewer's closer Josh Hader gave up 2 homers the other night in an extra inning loss to the Giants, which brings his 2019 total up to 9.
That's also how many he gave up all last year.
Just a crack in the Brewer armor.
A disturbance in the force.
One of those things that can live in Hader's head no matter how much he may try to forget.

Happy Sunday.
 

Happy 4th of July, Cub Fans.

I'm in a cabin in the Great North Woods.
There's wifi at a nearby lodge, but it's kind of a hike.
But the really cool thing is... AM radio at night.
You can hear stations from other states.
Like AM 670.
It's magic.
One time someone explained to me why AM radio works like that, but I can't remember the deets.
Anyway, last night the game FINALLY came in.
Kinda scratchy and broken up, but... THERE'S PAT HUGHES!
I got to hear the bottom of the 9th.
Thus the gif.

    Bellinger deal is official. Presser set for Wednesday.

    truth.  spring means little...february games in spring means very little...and the last innings of a february spring game means practically nothing for challenging talent evaluation, but it was fun to watch.

  • Cubster (view)

    The last 2 innings were fun. 

  • crunch (view)

    double off the wall in his next AB.

    shaw almost hit one out in the last inning, too...got a triple.

    PCA still looking good with a double today...and another one for a game tieing bloop double in the 9th.

    cubs fans gonna have a spring training aneurysm for the minor league kids if this keeps up.

    b.davis takes a fastball to the head, stays in the game.

    ....but wait...there's more!

    vazquez makes an ugly (and unsuccessful) tag play and it looks like his wrist took the worst of it.

    he's staying in the game, though the batter he clocked in the face is coming out.

    shaw snags a soft liner to his left for the 3rd out.

    given how every other person on the field is playing in the 7th, matt shaw probably doesn't want to touch the ball.  the entire team's defense has reverted to T-Ball level of play.  surprised the OF'rs aren't looking for 4-leaf clovers in the grass.

    no errors, just bad baseball.

    matt shaw playing 3rd in the 7th.  out of sheer curiosity, it would be nice to see him field and throw to 1st.

  • Dolorous Jon Lester (view)

    Hard to be certain there… I think he’s in a battle with a few guys. Alzolay, Neris, Merryweather, Leiter, Almonte likely either locks or near locks unless they’re hurt or absolutely awful. Assad will be there unless he’s a SP, same for Smyly. Them being SP opens another spot but I’m assuming Little is battling for the last spot with Palencia, Cuas, wesneski (another SP candidate), Keegan, CJ, Sanders, R Thompson, Wieck, Roberts, Lovelady.

    Gotta believe Little makes the OD roster
    He was pretty good last year
    Went from SB, to TN, to IA to Chicago
    He did well enough and has that rare 6-8 LH velo and spin
