About now is when it gets really really fun to talk about the Cubs.
Me, Vitellaro and Oif were talking in the office on Monday - none of this whoopin' up on the Mets stuff had happened yet. We're talking about Felix, and Oif clearly remembers that when Ryne Sandberg first came up he absolutely looked lost forEVER. Then one day he got a couple hits and suddenly he was the real Ryno.
Oif is good with memory and sports trivia, do you guys remember that?
So, how about Cedeno and Pie the last couple days?
I got home Monday just in time for the Cubs to come up in the 8th.
Fukudome's walk after a hundred foul balls was amazing, but when Cedeno gets the 2-out hit and knocks in two, well...that's what real baseball players do.
Then Pie with the 3 run dinger off Sosa.
This is the Mets - their bullpen isn't just a bunch of pixies.
And yesterday it's just CRAZY busy at work.
I've seen nothing.
I'm in a meeting, Sutter's even there.
Suddenly JT Mapel walks by and gives us the breathless recap including Cedeno's grand slam in the 8th.
Turned out to be a pretttty good meeting.
I gotta run, but I always say be happy when you can with the Cubs.
