  10. Mitch Williams; P
  11. Lance Dickson; P
  12. Mike Harkey; P
  13. Mike Bielecki; P
  14. Jeff Pico; P

Ok, so there’s 14 there.  These are the names that make me go “Who?”  I do have others, Joe Girardi, Rick Sutcliffe, Paul Assenmacher (Not sure why I remember him), Ryne Sandberg, Mark Grace, Greg Maddux & Jody Davis.

I can’t WAIT for baseball to start.

Thursday 13

aaaaaaaaaaargh!!

Stupid Cubs.  They folded like a cheap suit.  Fell like a house of cards.  They choked and no one was there to perform the Heimlich maneuver.  The team with the best record in baseball gets swept out of the playoffs.  AGAIN.

YEAH!!!

Well, the Cubs did it!  They made it to the post-season by winning Saturday.  The game was another good one azgainst St. Louis.  The Cubs won their final home game of the regular season.  7 games left.  Four in New York and 3 in Milwaukee.

And then it was two.

The Cubs won a thrilling extra inning game today.  They were down 6-2 going into the bottom of the 9th.  Soto tied the game in the bottom of the 9th forcing extra innings.  It only took 3 extra innings before Lee hit the game winning single.

With the Cubs win, the magic number is TWO!

WAHOO!!!

Magic number is…

5 games to go to the playoffs.  6 games and the Cubs clinch the division.  Wahoo!!  Zambrano picthed a no hitter Sunday night and Lilly was thisclose, but they won.  It would have been cool to have back to back no hitters.

A girl can always dream, eh?

I don’t understand…

The Cubs are now 83-50.  YEAH CUBS!!  The sports announcers state that they are 33 games above .500.  I don’t get that.  Shouldn’t it be 16.5 games over .500?  If they lost all those games, they wouldn’t be at .500.
