For some reason, I don't like seeing digital readouts of how many days til Opeing Day.
And I'm terrible with calendars.
Some people can say, "Oh that second Monday in December is the 13th."
But a steadily disappearing container of Q-tips is a nice, easy old-school countdown.
You could even glue a Cubs logo to the holder to add excitement.
By the way, it's actually 149 days til the opener, so be sure to take a couple Q-tips out before beginning.
Well, that team from Boston is pretty depressing with their 4-1 early WS Championship.
I mean, it was kinda funny that the guy who rose to the top wasn't a star like Mookie Betts, but rather someone I'd see coming up to bat and think, "Oh it's THAT guy again."
61 hits all season long.
Then 11 in October, with 4 of them being home runs of such importance that he gets elected to the Ben Zobrist club, the World Series EmveepeeZ.
My favorite part of the whole series was when the managers weren't trotting out 98 MPH reliever after 98 MPH reliever.
Because... the Cubs don't have anything close to that and I found it depressing.
Rumor is, teams are gonna start collecting these kinds of relievers, starters will go less long as they bring in the reserves.
It was so compelling and just... nice to watch Rich Hill's 6.1 innings, or David Price's 7 dominant innings.
Luckily, we have Theo and Jed.
And they'll take stock of what they have, make the right assessments and fix it.
So many questions.
No idea about Addison Russell, but I don't expect him to be around.
Which Cub that we love will be trade bait?
Happ? Schwarber? Almora?
How do you fix Carl Edwards - that guy has All-Star stuff if he stays healthy and harnesses it.
Will Jose Quintana just make us all angry when/if Eloy Jimenez starts banging the ball out of Comiskey (or whatever it is)?
Well, like I said: we have Theo and Jed.
So have confidence and count your Q-tips.
It's all gonna work out fine.
