I feel bad sometimes because I write some stuff that's not really nice, and awhile ago I wrote some not nice stuff in a post about Coghlan.
So here, here's a nice one about him.
Remember when he first started playing here, and everybody went well, he was Rookie of the Year in 2009!
It's possible that nobody reading this will remember that.
I tried to block everything out of my brain that had to do with baseball in '09.
But that was something at least - hey the Cubs got a Rookie of the Year guy - hits for average - off a scrap heap in Miami.
Plus, a lefty bat which is rare on the current and future Cubs...
But when he started, and this is the part I vaguely remember writing about him - he appeared to be clueless at the plate.
Well, he turned out to be one of those guys who we got to watch figure it out.
He improved each month, and you know, when you see him in the lineup it's not a bad thing.
In fact, it's been pretty good.
Not good enough to do any damage to Adam Wainwright last night, but that was the case with everybody.
Cubs zeero, Cards 8.
Travis Wood with the bitter taste of 2014 in his mouth.
And then there's the Bears.
Geno Smith looked like Jay Cutler of last year, and I wish I would have counted how many interceptions both teams dropped.
But luck was on our side last night, and now the Bears are sitting kind of pretty at 2-1 after a weekend that saw the Pack get creamed.
