Things that make you go Hmmmm…

  • One of the most likable Cubs of a generation turning in one of the worst pitching lines I’ve ever seen. Ever. EVER. 0.1 IP, 4H, 7ER, 4BB, 0K, 1HR. Walking 4 batters may have saved him from even more damage. Thank goodness he couldn’t throw strikes. Hmmm….

  • The Cubs losing 11-2 and the score shouldn’t have been even THAT close. The D-backs were 4-19 with RISP. We got lucky? Hmmm…

  • The Blackhawks distracting me from the baseball season has ended. I hope all of the Canadians from the western provinces who fainted or put their fist through a wall when Captain Serious scored a shorty with less than 2 minutes left to tie game 7 have made a speedy recovery. The better team won, and I wish the Canucks the best of luck (even though I am sick and tired of a smallish group of Canadians loudly whining about some ridiculous conspiracy against Canadian teams every time a call goes against them – newsflash, like the players, most referees are Canadians too… You haven’t won the Cup in a while because your teams have sucked either in the regular season or the playoffs. See Toronto Maple Leafs and Edmonton Oilers for more info). Double-Hmmmm…

  • The Bears did their part to distract us with their own mesmerizing incompetence on draft day… bungling a trade with the Ravens. Hmmmm…

  • From high in the mountains, to the California Coast… from the lake-effect snow and Wrigley monsoons to the sunshine of the desert… the Cubs have played… as icky as the weather. Hmmmm….

  • I am always happy to see my sibling White Sox do well. And I’m happy that they ended their own awful losing streak – but the only thing worse than a Cubs losing streak is a losing streak when the Sox are winning. Mostly because there is a small but vocal group of Sox fans who take more pleasure in Cubs losses than Sox wins :)P Hmmmm…

  • The MLB front office putting DeWitt on the all-star ballot instead of Barney. I’m still ticked off about that. Hmmm….

Obviously this team is capable doing a much better job hitting, pitching, defending, managing, running, catching the ball, tagging runners, coaching the bases, sliding into bases (I’m looking at you Captain Castro), and of course hoisting the ‘W’ flag at Wrigley. Does that cover everything? I think it does.

At least Dempster didn’t tweet about it from the clubhouse. Hmmmm…

We need some sunshine. So… cue the cheesy early 90’s pop music. If that doesn’t make you smile, I’m not sure what will.
Things that make you go Hmmmm…

Is it May yet?

    Trust me. You haven’t missed anything. I am personally taking a vow of amnesia about the entire month of April. Starting tomorrow. Right now, I am personally just very happy that I missed what was likely a huge disaster at The Cell. Sometimes, working the evening shift has its advantages. But, I get the impression we can relate to your 11-2 loss.

    And, don’t worry. The Sox are in no danger of a winning-streak any time soon. Unfortunately.

    May can’t possibly be worse. And, it’s almost here. I hope there is better things ahead – for both ChiTown teams.

    I agree with you on the Canadian teams. I love hockey, it’s a birth right up here, but this whole Canadian conspiracy is crazy. Our teams have sucked(my beloved Ottawa Senators) My dad was cheering for the Blackhawks. However, that being said, our dollar hasn’t been the greatest, but now that’s on equal playing field. We’ll see a turnaround in our teams.

    At some point… those south-side bats are going to get back in gear. Can we pencil that in for May? I’ve already got an appointment for the Cubs starters to get back on track. But there should be room for both.

    Demp had better be fresh :)P He’ll be fine. I agree.

    Ah, Ottawa. Luckily there is so much press about the Maple Leafs front office incompetence, they don’t shine the spotlight on the capital as much. 🙂 And I can sympathize, until a couple of years ago, my beloved Hawks were *frequently* rated the worst run team in the NHL (and sometimes all of professional sports).
