Big deal

Sunday, February 8th, 2009

Cubs’ pitchers and catchers report to Spring Training in just five days and I don’t even care. Normally, I’m counting down the days until Spring Training, beginning sometime in November, but not this year. I’m still so mad at the Cubs for their implosion during last year’s playoffs, and for trading away the best utility player in all of baseball, Mark DeRosa. I’ll watch and listen to games this year but I’m not putting my heart into it 100% like I have in the past.

I just don’t get it

Sunday, October 5th, 2008

The Cubs kick butt all season, decidedly win the NL Central Division, and get swept out of the first round of the playoffs by a team that squeaked in. I’m shocked, confused, upset, sick to my stomach – you name it. I expected this to happen last season when they were swept in the first round by the Diamondbacks, but not this year. So now I guess it’s Let’s Go Blackhawks.

Saturday, March 1st, 2008, but I went to Phoenix, Arizona. That song always runs through my head every time we come out to Arizona. Felicia, Joe, Mark and I got in late last night. We're in Scottsdale for a long ... [Continue reading this entry]

Please don’t trade DeRosa!

Sunday, February 17th, 2008
Dear Uncle Lou, Please do what you can to convince Mr. Hendry that Mark DeRosa should NOT be traded! I just read today about the trade rumors concerning DeRosa who would be sent to Baltimore for Brian Roberts. Admittedly, ... [Continue reading this entry]
