Derrek Lee is hitting the living snot out of the ball.
He leads the majors in homers with 7.
Yeah, I'm aware that the season is only 3 weeks old, but if he hits 7 homers every 3 weeks...why that's 63 homers.
Not including playoffs.
(I counted the weeks on my magnet schedule, so...pretty sure that's right.)
I'm trying to remember when the Cubs started off the season with so many opportunities to sweep.
Man, two more victories in the last week and we'd be damn near undefeated!
Okay, maybe not, but we'd be in front of the Cards.
Jason Marquis - looking pretty smooth out there today buddy.
Kosuke Fukudome - cool shades.
(I'm SO GLAD those hideous Jim Riggleman-style shades have pretty much gone from the game.)
And you Pittsburgh pitchers - nothin' wrong with 50 walks in a game, guys, that'll always put me in a good mood.
And lastly, Matt Murton, it's good to see you here.
Do me a favor and swing your bat like there's no tomorrow.
Cubs 13, Pirates...uno.
Tomorrow's gonna be Ryan Dempster against oh and oh Zach Duke.
Lastly that line "If your skin don't crawl, you're not pitching to him" was semi-lifted from an old movie I can't remember the name of, only the line went "If your skin don't crawl, it's on too tight."
I cut it out, still have it somewhere.
