It's odd, isn't it?
We're all older and smarter and while I'm SO SUPER CRAZY EXCITED about the Cubs' signing of Jon Lester, I won't ever allow myself to forget how happy I was when the Cubs signed Alfonso Soriano.
This feels just so similar, this elation.
It's also funny just having written this blog for so long.
I mean, I'll never be more than just a beer drinkin' slob Cub fan.
But since 2003, I've just.. learned so much more about the game.
And I appreciate what's happening for us right now about a billion times more than I did than when Soriano was signed.
Anyway, Jon Lester and Miguel Montero.
Real ballplayers who will perform for us at Wrigley Field next year.
They'll be on tv for us to watch too, with Anthony Rizzo and Starlin Castro and Arismendy Alcantara and Jake Arrieta and Jorge Soler. And Javier Baez. And Kris Bryant.
And Chris Bosio and Joe Maddon.
I'm gonna go out on a limb and say that next summer will be the most interesting we've experienced in decades.
It's a little disconcerting how some just let the WS words roll off their tongue, and I still think that even chatting about it a ways off.
Is it ever an exciting time to be a Cubs Fan.
