Fun Stuff

Baseball tonight just pointed out that Carlos has a hit in the last 11 games in which he has a plate appearance.  I got to thinking - this is a freakin' fun team to watch!   Our frontline (or 1a) pitcher has an attitude and wants to mash each time he is called upon to hit>> and depsite his immaturity, has turned in a really, really good year on the mound.  I mention his lack of composure only b/c Carlos tends to get too fired up and throw rather than pitch at times, but he has come a long way in that regard.  The guy is nails, and his determination at the plate should pay dividends in the playoffs.

I wondered how Harden would do in transition, and his first 2 games gave no glimpse as to how much of an ass-kicker he is on the mound.  I am confident leading into the playoffs, despite some of the weaknesses that some regularly point out here.  I actually thought next year was the year of the Cub, and only b/c Piniella puts together great teams with time.  A miscalculation, especially after the Harden deal was made.

I won't speak about this again (Thank God), but why not this year?
