1/1 Happy new year
Best wishes to Cubs fans for a safe, prosperous, healthy, and winning new year in 2012. Here’s hoping the Cubs’ resolutions include doing the little things, avoiding distractions, letting the kids play, and finishing above .500 (the last time they had back to back 90-loss seasons was 1999-2000). Opening Day is April 5 vs. the Nationals. How about Matt Garza vs. Stephen Strasburg? Or, will it be Ryan Dempster vs. Strasburg, with Garza wearing another uniform? Plenty of time for Theo & Co. to make changes before pitchers and catchers report to Mesa, Ariz.
And congrats (I think) to joeydafish, who led all the world in 2011 by posting 481 comments on the blog. Next up, Petrey10 with 96. Hustlelikereed was third with 60 comments.
