I figure EVERYBODY'S gonna be talking about Bob Howry coming back to the Cubs today.
Here's what I drew in less than 3 minutes last night:
I guess I don't have a say in the matter, do I?
But... did we not just discuss how truly awful ol' Bob Howry was when the Cubs last visited Arizona?
Yet, there the story is in MLB TRADERUMORS: Cubs close to signing Bob Howry.
You know, it's not as if the Chicago Faithful don't have enough to be not faithful about - why add gasoline to the fire? I mean, between this year and last I think I've heard enough booing to last a non-World Series century. Yes, I've read that he'll help the kids and he's a great guy, but, you know... in the world of ideas, this one is begging for the naysayers to speak up. Can't you hear it? "He'll sure show the kids how to give up that long ball..."
Well, at least the Cubs lost yesterday and left the tying run on 3rd with nobody out in the top of the 9th!
Ahhh, that was mean.
It was the Phillies, it was actually a good game and the Cubs were in it all the way to the end. Ryan Dempster is always good, but so far this season he's just not getting any luck at all.
I guess they flew to Texas last night, and they'll play the Rangers today. Did you know they were in first in the AL West? Over the Angels and A's?
In fact, I don't know squat about the Rangers. Hopefully I learn that they don't match up against the Cubs. It'll be Terrible Ted on the mound tonight!
Now, for the other part of today's post: The Chicago Blackhawks host the San Jose Sharks tonight.
Everybody got all weird about the Hawks winning at home vs. on the road, that maybe they're better playing at the other guy's place.
I bet Brent Seabrook's got something to say about that.
It's all on tonight, and if you're a Chicago fan (yeah, even if you're a Sox fan), it's gonna be an awesome 7:00 PM, and I'll be switching back and forth for a couple hours of sports bliss.
PS: Mike Huang, my buddy and excellent writer at VINELINE (and the guy who gives me the illustration assignments there every month) is covering the MLB draft for the Sporting News. It's all about the young talent available in high school and college. Please go here, learn something about the kids coming up, and leave a comment.
