Ladies and gentlemen, I present Derek Lee and Alfonso Soriano, Cub All-Stars.
21 homers between them.
Wellll, you wish that was a bigger number, and I’m sure it’ll grow alot before this season’s over.
But hey, not a half-bad half-summer, all things considered.
Waaay more entertaining than in years.
I’m absolutely thrilled with Lou Piniella and his straight-talkin’ way.
The kids are doing well.
They need that bullpen to heal up and do better.
Rich Hill, you forget that guy’s a kid too, but he needs to do better.
So, it ended with a dud loss in Pittsburgh, but I’ll take 12 wins out of 16 games any time.
Now lets just hope Joey Cora isn’t hanging around somewhere swinging a fungo bat near Alfonso or Derrek, get through this All Star game, and then onto the hot months.
I think it’s only gonna get better.
