I doubt it. It is Patrick Wisdom. Plus Wrigley doesn't open that much time before a game. And the weather is going to be crummy. I don't care. The sooner we get into the stadium the more money you are going to spend. I don't think I will be able to but if I can snag an extra one I will send it to you. People hoard those things like they are gold.

Patrick Wisdom?

coot - Speaking of bobble heads, do you recall which one (or how many) Lansing Lugnuts ones I sent your way? The mention of them got me to look at the ones I have and I think I sent you most but I know there are a couple that I didn't get two of. Carlos Beltran I am almost positive you didn't get. This was when they were a Royals affiliate. I only went to one game that year and then the Cubs took over.

No big deal, just curious.

Oh, another bobble head thing that is funny. My buddy went to a Cubs game a few weeks ago and it was David Ross bobble head day. It was dated: 2020. It was supposed to be in that year and the team kept them and used it as a promotion this year. Anything to make a buck I guess. 😀

Seems like it was (the immortal, love the name) Buck Coats, Felix Pie, Andrew Sisco, Mark Prior and a Carlos Zambrano. Something like that. Some were in the Royals system, some the Cubs.

Jesus, NY fans are stoked nowadays - Mets & Yankees, the 2 best records so far - & Rangiz too - they did what we couldn't do - they beat Carolina in Carolina 7th game - all those teams, Broonz, Leafs, Carolina, Tampa, Fla, Pitts, are so even

but Severino is back after 2+ years, & Mets are thriving w/out deGrom

Everyone, not just sports fans, should be really concerned with basketball player Britney Griner's situation - detained against her will in Russia - she's obviously being used as an example - other Americans and journalists have also been, & still are, wrongfully jailed in Russia

Sox haven't cleared .500 yet, but once we do, we'll be rolling

the Guars? who knows - that's what the formerly offended>now enlightened, are calling them for short

guar-In-dians - why not that - or Cle-vindians

but whoa - Noah is back, one of many who's missed the last 2+ years - with Shohei & Trout you'd think they'd be incredible - but no - can't buy wins - let's go Sawx

Too bad about Joe Maddon. I had a feeling this was going to happen.

Stephen -

If the season ended today, the Red Sux would be the last team to get into the playoffs. They are on a roll. 😀

Finally we've cleared .500 Lee! 😧😳 - yep we're wheelin & dealin' haha - did my heart good to see Wacha take the ball for the last two innings of his 1-0 complete game the other night - he wanted the win, wasn't wincing watching his pitch count & wasn't going to let the bullpen screw it up

But wait a minute

He returns tmrw - Stephen, the world's greatest P

like many P's, has missed the last 2+ years

now his manager is saying "there are no limitations on Stephen" 

Yeah right! as if we'll see 7IP or complete games from Stephen anytime soon

Tygiz are struggling, but holy **** - Miguel Cabrera, top 10 in hitting in AL at .300 - haven't looked up Puljos' #s

as always - whether on the diamond or sheet, we gotta catch Tor & TB - let's go Sox

Man what happened to the Cubbies? It's not like they are a small market team that can't draw fans and afford to pay players.

Yankees were the the Bronx Bombers this weekend. 44-16 a third of the way through the season. If they can stay healthy could be their year.

Nope, some of em have come back well from their 2 year injury layoff - Justin Verlander, damn, are you kidding - at 39, well on his way to his third 20 game season (he's 8-2, 1.94) - Severino has pitched well for NY -- yes it's looking like their year alright - no word yet on Chris

Mets too - Atl & Phil have been burning the league down but are still far back

Sox gotta take advantage of A's visit, they're down this year - 6 games up on .500 by the end of the week is where we wanna be 

look at the batting leadiz, then yaknow why I always say, Let's Go Sawx, we got this boys, 

____________

gotta add about the hockey finals too, what can you say about TB, they're on track for a threepeat, they knocked out league-champion Panthers of Fla 

now it's Colo, who led much of season finishing second to FlaP - Denver experienced record heat on Saturday, but TB I think will ice them - another Way-cool finals matchup - major points differential, but TB owns the 4-of-7 format

still mad at Broonz for firing Cassidy, Shame On Them!! emoji, "pissed"

That's an easy one Bill. They got rid of several key players. Apparently they are experiencing financial issues which is ridiculous. They charge the same for tickets, raise the cost of concessions every year, etc. Hell they basically own Wrigleyville. 

They do have some fun youngsters to watch. But they are nowhere near competing for even a division title so there is no sense spending money on players just yet. Last year I think I went to nine or ten games there. I paid for one. People have been on the ticket waiting list for years and now their phone is ringing because a lot of people are not renewing their tickets. These season ticket holders are stuck because if they don't renew one year and want them in the future they are moved to the end of the line. The Cubs know people will continue to pay because hey, they are the Cubs and going to a game there is a great experience. I have been a Cubs fan since the 80s (wow!) and will always support them but I do wonder if people stop giving the Cubs their money.

I kind of doubt it.

Just curious.  Which makes you happier, the White Sux win or the Flubs lose? Seriously.

And you can't say "both"! 😉 

I mean, haters gonna be haters, right?

Actually, the Cardinals being in first place makes me happier - the Cubs losing is just a bonus ... 

My brother is a Cubs fan, and he texts me every time the Cubs win or the Cardinals lose.  It is very annoying, but luckily hasn't happened that much this year - the last few years were brutal though ... 

I started liking the Sox when I moved up to the Chicago area - had 20 game weekend tickets the year they hosted the All Star game so that I could go to the All Star game - and got a bonus when they made the playoffs and got tickets for that too - although it didn't last long.  Too bad they have had so many injuries - thought they were going to be exciting this year ...

Yeah I know they got rid of key players like Rizzo (love him as a Yankee), Baez, Schwarber, Bryant etc. I was just curious why they tore the team down as they seem to have a good revenue flow, are in a major market and it is not like the owners are paupers.

Cubby fans are some of the most loyal in baseball, along with the Red Sox, and support the team through good and bad so can't see them giving up their tix during the rebuild. The Cubbies got some good prospects in the tear down trades but most are down in the Class A leagues so it will take several years before they reap the benefits.

Have to say I was not upset when the Cubbies designated Clint Frazier for assignment right before the Yankee series after he bashed them to the press. Karma is a bitch.

He has talent but just can't stay healthy, just keep his mouth shut and just play baseball. 

The guy must be a pain in the arse for a team like the Cubbies needing talent to basically release him. He is talented if he can grow up and just concentrate on playing baseball I think he could have some success. Maybe a team like the Tiggers will give him a chance as they are the lowest scoring team in baseball by a lot.

Don't remind me. I saw this thing on The MLB Network. If the Tiggers scored three, four or more, they would have a winning record. That's it. They can't even score three. And they are supposedly in the stages of turning the corner to be competitive.

@lee The Tiggers have a top 10 rated minor league farm system while the Cubbies are about middle of the pack.

If they can sign a few reasonably priced bats in the offseason the Tiggers may not be far off from competing. Considering the whole starting rotation was on the disabled list at some point this season it is tough to win if you can't hold the competition to a low score and score runs.

I forgot Dave was a big Cubs fan. I wish I had thought of you because I had good seats to the first game of the doubleheader on Satuday June 4th that I couldn't use. I thought of everyone (or so I thought) to offer them to.

Good game. Flubs beat the Deadbirds.
