« #Cubs Kyle Schwarber. I wonder what Cardinal fans are thinking right now? | Main | Cubs Portrait Series: Dexter Fowler. 2nd half pointing up. »

You have to love Cole Hamels way of selling himself to the Cubs (or anyone else)...a no-hitter at Wrigley, first since Sandy Koufax in 1965.

I like this guy. But do we really need another $23M pitcher in the rotation right now?

I could engage in some classic Jack Daniels-inspired speculation about what Theo should do before the trade deadline. But somehow, I think Theo is better at being Theo than I am.

Let's see what develops. Meanwhile, I'm still expecting a little post-season run from the Wild Card spot. We could get hot and shock the world!

Well, I've already had more fun than I expected this summer.
I mean, it could get better, but I think Theo and Jed are right on schedule.
It would be awesome to get a fantastic starter for a number of years.
But this season?
I'd rather they be studied and smart.
If that means Hamels then great.
If not, then great.
Next year will be different.


Wow...the Cubs just found that late inning closer to give us that badly needed save and a win.

A young fellow named Kris Bryant. He just closed the game, saved Motte and gave Soriano a win to go with his blown save.

BTW...a guy who blows a save should never get the win. Make it a "team win"...

Or better yet, give the W to KB!
