That guy gets a jump on the ball like nobody else.
Plus, a little pop now and then.
With the Grandest Pop last night in the 8th against the Snakes in AZ, and the Cubs win 10-6.
It was so nice last night I fell asleep in the back yard, probably around the 3rd (been working too much).
Cubs were still losing.
Missed all the good stuff except for D. Lee's homer in the first.
Pretty much everybody got a hit (even winning pitcher Ted Lilly, who then stole third) so I guess the bats woke up a little bit.
Alfonso Soriano is back, which changes the dynamic of the line-up, and I'm glad for the change.
But Johnson went 3 for 4, scored twice and drove in 4.
The other night, Len and Bob asked what was the most exciting play of the year so far, and you could text in your answer. Can't remember all of them, but I texted in The Catch by Speedy Reedy.
Pretty sure that play won.
And I figure whatever goes on in his mind must include a little radar.
The Cubs are home vs. the Marlins this weekend.
Tonight we got 6'5" 255 pound Mr. Z on the mound against 6'5" 215 pounder Scott Olsen the lefty.
With Milwaukee and their fearsome current mojo up next, the Cubs need conjure up some of their own, or we're talking about the wild card by next weekend.
So no sleeping with the Fish, guys.
May the revolting slumber of the Cub Bats finally be OVER!
