MLB Network to show Harry documentary. #Cubs

Cubs legendary broadcaster Harry Caray will be the featured subject in “Holy Cow! The Story of Harry Caray,” the latest edition of MLB Network Presents, to premier Feb. 2 at 8 p.m. CT. Narrated by award-winning actor and die-hard Cubs fan William Petersen, the one-hour program on MLB Network documents Caray’s rise to becoming one of baseball’s most iconic voices and how his legacy still resonates throughout the game.

The episode covers a rare look into Caray’s childhood and relationship with his family, including interviews with Atlanta Braves broadcaster and Harry’s grandson, Chip Caray, and Harry’s widow, Dutchie.

Broadcasters Joe Buck, Bob Costas, Pat Hughes, Tim McCarver, Steve Stone and Rick Sutcliffe describe Caray’s unique style that endeared him to generations of fans. Former Cubs president John McDonough and Chicago columnist Rick Kogan detail Caray’s special bond with Chicago, where Caray called White Sox games for 11 seasons and Cubs games for 16 seasons. Longtime comedians and Chicago natives Tom Dreesen and Jeff Garlin highlight Caray’s colorful personality.

*On Friday on MLB Network, fans can watch Kris Bryant and Jake Arrieta receive their BBWAA awards, which were presented in New York last Saturday.  Check your local listings for the time.

Carrie:

I wish that I knew who told you that the Harry Carey thing was going to be on Feb 2, I just checked out my guide for that day and it is not scheduled to be shown any time that week.

http://www.chicagotribune.com/sports/baseball/cubs/ct-cubs-harry-caray-documentary-20160127-story.html Maybe it was a new addition to the lineup and your guide hasn’t updated yet.

That was MLB Network that issued the release. And it’s Harry Caray

I want to compliment yourself on calling attention to `getting the spelling right.` That`s important to me as well. We all look forward to the `Special` on the subject of Harry Caray Tuesday evening. The man is a `legend.` I was fortunate to meet the man in Montreal in 1984. He was regarded as an important figure then, but he nor I, nor very few others, I suggest, had any clue 32 years later he would enjoy the elevated status he occupies today.

After viewing that documentary, one can conclude Donald Trump has something in common with Harry. His career comes before his family.

Cubs Sign LHP Nick Greenwood to Minor League Contract.
MLB Pipeline Ranks Cubs Gleyber Torres Ninth Best Shortstop Prospect.

Its nice to have good problems and the Cubs have them, especially the Pitching. We all know there will be injuries, but the depth this Management has put together is amazing. USA Today recently ranked the Cubs rotation #1 in Baseball.
With Arietta, Lester, Lackey, Hammel, Hendricks and Warren listed as a 6th Starter. Then the announcement that Cahill, Richard and Wood would all be stretched out in ST and given a chance to make the Rotation. As a Cub fan I have never seen this kind of Quality Depth during a ST.
BP may be another very nice problem, unless a trade is made and everyone stays healthy, Rondon, Strop, Grimm and Ramirez are pretty much a given. How many Pitchers will Maddon carry?
There are already 13 Mentioned, leaving off Brothers, Acevedo, Rosscup, Edwards, Olmos and Patton who are all on the 40 man Roster.
Some may have options, but only one Starter. Hendricks.
Hendricks pitched 180 innings as a 4/5 Starter last year. His WHIP was 1.16, which is better than the projected #3 Starter. He struckout 167 hitters in that 180 IP, not bad for a control Pitcher and huge improvement over 2014. Do you send him to AAA to start the season, because he has options?
Going to be interesting.
