Last year I'd have been alot more excited about this.
You know, we were all looking for fun and this would have been perfect.
Today Will Ferrell will suit up for a bunch of teams and the good news is he's doing it to raise awareness for cancer and we'll all get a good laugh at the HBO film later.
So good job, Will!
Jon Lester looked amazing yesterday in the Cubs first win of the Spring, a 4-3 win over the Dodgers.
Remember when Matt Garza came to the Cubs and we were all WOO HOO WE GOT GARZA!?
Then Spring Training started and he wasn't that good and all he could talk about was the dry AZ weather wrecked his breaking stuff and right away you were thinking "uh oh".
That doesn't seem to be happening to Lester.
He struck out Jimmy Rollins leading off with a fabulous curve.
You saw the Joe Maddon vented a bit about the lack of fundamentals?
There was some nice D yesterday too, including Mike Olt's barehanded pickup and toss to Anthony Rizzo that nailed Chris Heisey.
But if you see the play (go to the GameDay box score and click on the "video" box at the top right), Olt's throw was to Rizzo's left. Watch him effortlessly float across the bag to catch the throw.
Anyway, nice to get a ST win finally!
That's all I got.
