These include shots of Sveum's ejection (unfortunately the tall man in front of me got in the way of some of them). Also, some rain delay theatre including the rainbow, a shot for you Hawks fans and the scoreboard hitting the midnight hour.
This weekend while visiting my grandfather, my aunt came across this old infielder's glove from the 1950's. Upon closer inspection we saw that the printed "autograph" on the palm was none other than that of Ransom Jackson, who was a third baseman during two stints with the Cubs, the first being from 1950-1955, and the second (and also his last season) in 1959. We all thought it was a pretty cool find and I would like to take this opportunity to share it with my BCB friends. Cheers!
"The website Cougarlife.com, a dating site for older women interested in younger men (cougars) recently polled 11,000 women on the topic of most desirable MLB cub (younger man)...Interestingly, there is one true "Cub" on this list. Chicago Cub, that is"
The big news here is that he says the industry buzz is that the Astros are going to do what they did last season and take Colin Moran, sign him cheap and use the savings later. That gives the Cubs the choice between Appel and Gray. He says Epstein likes Gray but that the Cubs are undecided.
I thought that this is at least interesting to consider and debate, especially for the long-time fan.
Getting harder watching the cubs as I am giants country and they keep winning in walk off fashion it seems like all the time. Help me keep my hopes up and tell me to be patient; it gets better someday right?
I was cruising the 'Net and came across this video. In case some of you didn't know, the Original Bleacher Bums' "home bar" was Ray's Bleachers, which is now Murphy's Bleachers. I'm pretty good friends with Ray Meyer, Jr., who literally grew up in this bar. When Ray was a kid, he'd run hot dogs, hamburgers and all sorts of beverages out to the bullpen during games. He's still good friends with Fergie to this day. It looks like somebody took some old pictures from that time and made the video. Pretty cool stuff.
One graphic. Six mistakes. I'd have loved to hear the discussion between the person who created this and his/her supervisor.
