I’m between PCPs, have run out of BP meds and can do a Scanners imitation at any time, even though I know how to reduce blood pressure herbally and am doing so. I ate a cat’s claw, did a shot of apple cider vinegar, and drank a half-cup of warm water with a teaspoon of red hot chili pepper and a crushed garlic clove in it. Give us a kiss. Or some chocolate.

Heh. In other news, Addison Russell said stuff, the Cubs are partnering with a questionable media company, and the winter didn’t yield any high-profile free agents, a cause for consternation among some of the intelligentsia. I admit to concerns about all of these things myself, but am maintaining a wait and see attitude. That said, hey Cubs, if you’re harboring a secret, give it away, now. I’d love a positive spring training.

Yeah, new Leo. I love that guy. Kinda samey-sounding sometimes but mad skills and when it’s on, it’s ON. He’d look good in the Cubs’ lineup.


In a bit, I’ll post a list of music and artists. In the meantime, here’s today’s Cubs News and Notes, and plenty of it. I raked the muck as thoroughly as possible. Neil Paine does NOT praise Theo. More Russellspeak. And then some. As always * means autoplay on, or annoying ads, or both (directions to remove for Firefox and Chrome).

“As a kid growing up, we all played. And I promise you, not one time when you’re in Little League or even high school or college did you worry about mechanics as much as you worried that you wanted to beat the other team with that other name on it. Really, that’s an over-simplification, but I want us to reduce the game to that. When it says St. Louis on the jersey, beat it. When it says Milwaukee, you want to beat it. Again, I think we get so enamored with all this other stuff that you just forget to compete sometimes.” -- Joe Maddon’s projected lineups. Prospects who could vie for spots.

Bryce Harper to the Giants? Hmm.

Food for thought:

I love you all. Don’t ever change. Thanks for reading. #Cubsnews
