After hearing some of us say that we would like to see a game with Z and Santana going against each other, I thought about the other things that I wanted to see this year.
One of the things I wanted to see last year was see Z pitch a no-hitter. He was really close twice, I think, but it didn't happen. Maybe he can make it happen this year.
I want to see Matt Murton hit his first grand slam. Anything with Murton will be great to see.
I want to see Kerry pitch a lot. This is what I want to see every year, but as we all know lately it's been a little hard to see happen. After he went 8-9 in 04, I said that I didn't want him to have a losing record next year because he would pitch enough to get wins. Well, he didn't. I just want to see him pitch.
I want to see the Cubs beat the Reds and rookie/bad pitchers.
I want D-Lee to have another great season. It doesn't have to be a monster one, just a good one. A season that will prove to everyone that thought 2005 was a fluke that it really wasn't.
I want to see us sweep a series against the Sox.
What do you want to see? Milestones? Games? Series? Players? This is a Sparkles diary so try to make your comments about nice things. It doesn't even have to be about the Cubs. Maybe you want to see Sammy get to 600 homers or Pedro's 3000th K(I want to see it). Or maybe you just want to see good baseball.
Oh, and saying you want to see the Cubs win the World Series in 06 doesn't count because I know you all want to see that! :)
