My baseball "instincts" take over

I am currently 27 years old and will turn 28 this coming June.  After obsessing over baseball for just about as long as I could remember, watching it, playing it, umpiring it for more half my life--and on top of it I like to consider myself a ridiculously obsessed Cub fan that is as close to the team as possible.  I live near the park I never miss a game, taped or live or radio,....anyways I could go on and on about how much of a "educated fan"  I think I am and how I believe I know more about Cubs baseball than 97% of the fandom.  (3% room for error and pyscho Cub fans)

.....well the point.


I like to think my knowledge of baseball is strong but I also feel I have good instincts.  My GUT instinct last night watching Soriano run hard from around the bases was to clench my butt and hope he doesnt strain anything.  I can attack Soriano as well as the next guy and Im not a ledge jumper either (although I have been on occasion in previous seasons)  Fact remains----all the opinions I can generate regarding Alfonso Soriano meant nothing to me when my first instinct/gut reaction/involuntary thought was that I did not want to get him hurt, therefore IMO, wherever the man is in the lineup he adds a lot of value to this team.

I am sorry to open this can of worms again.............
