Everyday a new scenario! What next? “Variety Is The Spice Of Life” – the Cub’s new motto! No wonder we fans are all on meds or drugs! Eamus Catuli

so all you whining they pitched to Pujols last night woudl you have rather they walked him and got to trumbo??? I think not….

Thank God Pujols hit that sinking liner to CF where Sweeney was playing, he being a player with the instinct, youth and determination (also Dejesus) to try to MAKE AN OUT BY CATCHING A BALL instead of it being hit to LF where Soriano would have CONCEDED THE BASE HIT. It is plays like this that separates a good outfielder from the below average outfielder that keeps his “error-less” play alive by not making the attempt to catch difficult balls. That is why I believe Soriano is best served being traded to an AL team so he can work on hitting singles and doubles and pop ups as a DH and the Cubs can field a better all around left fielder such as Sweeney. Maybe not a better home run hitter but certainly a better player to HELP put the Cubs in a position to win a ballgame. C’mon Hoystein work some magic and get Soriano to agree to a trade and get an AL GM to…to…to…oh, never mind….

so now you are ok with pitching to Pujols with the game on the line??? lol you guys can’t make your mind up…

Note to self: remove mention of me being ok with pitching to Pujols with the game on the line from above comment…OH…. wait, there is NO mention of me being ok with pitching to Pujols with the game on the line JUST the mention of gratitude to God that Pujols (since he being the hitter SVEUM allowed to face the lefty Russell) hit the ball to Sweeney and not to Soriano and the mention of Sweeney being a good outfielder. Must be hard for some people to comprehend…the English language. Or the built up rage and rush to argue interferes with their capacity to think clearly? Pick one.

No game today so we have all day to echo back and forth! Note to self: be kind to others and don’t overbake the stuffed peppers.

Further note to self: Stop sounding so senile! 77years and checking brain-drain daily. Bear with me!

So happy – great fun nail- biting game. Maybe we found our winning lineup! Good job by all. Thanks Cubbies.

HUGE DAY indeed Mamma….and next month is the trade deadline. Can we actually begin to consider competing in 2014????? The excitement and anticipation will begin to snowball after today’s pick!!
