This is from 2006, when Barry Bonds was trying to tie Babe Ruth's homer record.
The Cubs were in the middle of a May when they would win just 7 games.
But I remember this play - left fielder Bonds moved like a 90 year old, shuffling over as he tried to catch a foul ball.
He gets over next to the wall and flips over like a top-heavy boiled sausage in slow motion.
Super busy, guys.
If I can't get to the current action I'll post something from way back when.
Speaking of, what is up with Aramis?
He obviously knows he's the only top tier 3rd baseman with a contract running out, so he wants to be attractive to other teams, right?
Guy is on fire.
Think the Cubs should try to keep him?
This from Rob G. over at The Cub Reporter: "apparently Aramis Ramirez 2012 option is a mutual option. Technically, if the Cubs exercise the $16M option, he can void it and forfeit the $2M buyout, and his agent suggests that with Hendry gone, that's looking more likely now.
I'm not sure if that's good or bad news yet. $16M for one season is a bit expensive for Ramirez, but there's not a lot out there to play the hot corner either."
Maybe they won't even have the option - maybe it'll be up to the New Guy at General Manager.
Whatever happens with the Cubs front office... it's just a pretty crucial and interesting time in Cub history.
