« Lester, Schwarber are coming to Wrigley tonight. | Main | A quarter of the season in, it's FINALLY Cubs vs Cards time. »

May 18, 2021



I watched every minute. The fact that you were there makes me more than just jealous...it makes me super-happy for you! Sorry about not getting the PA announcer gig, but the "new guy" (name?) sounded pretty darn good. You gotta be born with a voice like that!

Anyway, what a nice game. I'm absolutely certain that this was the first time I was EVER happy to see an opposing player hit a dinger. I think I yelled 'SCHWARBS!!!" The Rizzo super-casual play at first on Lester was hilarious! The Hoerner play on the bases loaded rocket by Castro was as smooth and athletically-gifted as any I've seen in a LONG time!.. not sure, but it may have saved the game, IMHO.

And finally, it's been a long time since I saw a Cubs pitcher I never heard of (Tommy Nance) make a 9th inning look like a piece of cake: 11 pitches, 9 strikes, ZERO nerves! This guy is 30 years old? If he throws anything like that for the rest of his career, those Independent league games (and salary) will be a distant memory for him!

Sure would be nice to go win 5 or 6 in a row and lay claim to 1st place!

We can dream...

Oh Bud you shoulda been there!
And winning 5 or 6 in a row starting today would mean a sweep in St. Louis.
