After yesterdays scare with Jacoby, Im trusting Adrian G. to get me to 17.

and first ab hit for Gonzo…my streak lives another day 17 now!

M. Young for 18.

For me: Mr.-Blue-Eyes-that-effects-my-performance-during-daytime (aka Hamilton)

Maybe he’s wearing sunglasses or tinted contacts? 1st AB hit

Yay, Keep it going.
At least my guy walked, so no official AB yet.

GL to all


Elvisssss. Onto tomorrow.

Young gets me to 18! Now I can focus on my wife in labor (true story — we’re at the hospital right now!).

Haha. Awesome man. Congrats on 18 and congrats on the soon to be new addition.

Thanks. I’m hoping to have his college paid for in about 39 days. (haha)

Even if you have to sacrifice, raise him right, raise him as a Cubs fan 😛

Oh, no! My dad and sister would love that. My house is a Reds house all the way. But I will teach him how to hate the Cardinals…

🙂 at least you two can agree on that.
Keith I’ve always wondered how you were a cubs fan livin MO ( I think I remember u saying you live just outside StL.)

Born & raised in Chicago. After retiring from U.S. Air Force, relocated to town just outside of St.Louis – good money. Trust me when I say it can be very painful this time of the year; especially when Cubs doing poor & Cards are not. Did have a couple good years a little while back, but they are far too few & between.

** too few & far between 😦

As for team loyalty. I can say I’ve never seen one of these anywhere in my vicinity, except on my car. I live in constant fear of vandalism

Well pending extras, leader just bitthe dust thanks to Crawford.

Think so. But new leader has chance at a 30-gamer tomorrow

Crawford was such an odd pick, with the other more consistent lefties in that lineup..

And we have a new leader, that spot is becoming a revolving door!
