It's all over, including the crying, and we have a winner in the BCB 2012 Season Prediction Contest. This was a remarkably tough season to do this, as the team was terrible, I didn't...

Congrats, Brett Jackson - first Major League hit. Photo by me, from the right field bleachers, because I am awesome and brought my super-stalker lens for my camera. Pure luck on the timing.

I hope this isn't in response to the Braun case. That would be insanity, especially since he made his judgment according to the rules.

How to stay interested: 2012 Cubs Season Odds Contest

Hello Cub Fans- My name is PacificCub, and I am a Cubs-a-holic. I can't get enough Cubs action or Cubs information. I run MLB Gameday on my computer while teaching. I dropped a class in grad...

Marlon Byrd on "passing the torch" to Brett Jackson

Interesting insight into what Byrd sees as "inevitable". Will he get the chance to do it?

"Joe West Going Rogue" - but was he right?

15

I am normally one of the first people to bash Joe West, and umpires overstepping their bounds in general. I understand the spirit of the replay rule for home runs. However, I do not agree with the sentiment in this article about how the call was handled. I think he made the right decision to review the play given that it COULD have been an home run that was interfered with. I also think he made the right call by calling Pence out - especially given that it was a home team's fans interfering. For me, this is another case where I think replay should be used in all it's possibilities. There is no reason that this should not be the correct way to do this. What do you think of this can of worms?

Rewind yourself!: The Locker Room Rules

An interesting/amusing blog entry from Chris Jones of Esquire Magazine about how to act like a professional beat writer in a locker room setting. No mention of Jason Kendall... though a suggestion for similar situations is included. NOTE: Language may be rough for some of you elderly folks.

MLB considering 7-day DL for concussions

16

Might be a good way to keep players who don't want to be out the full 15 days off the field until they are in a bit better shape. I'm all for a 10 day list for all injuries.

Joey Votto 'clarifies' his statement Votto clarified his remarks Friday, saying he has great respect for the Cubs. He added that he "can't say as much for their fans." The Cubs clinched the NL Central title in Cincinnati in 2007, Votto's first season in the majors. Thousands of Cubs fans were in the stands at Great American Ball Park for that game. Votto still bristles at the memory and says he won't sign autographs for Cubs fans as a result.

Free weekend of live MLB game on iPhone through MLB At Bat

Just got this notice - naturally, blackout restrictions apply, but all games are available to view on the iPhone app for free this weekend. I plan to abuse it.

OT: How good was the Springfield Power Plant Team (according to WAR)?

A little sabermetric silliness to round out your day. Still one of my favorite episodes. Hard to believe it is almost 20 years old.

Got my copy of MSP Cubs AnNUal yesterday

Just wanted to let all the authors know you did a hell of a job. An exceptionally informative book for a February day. And yes, I read the entire thing while in the bathroom. Kudos!

FYI - MLB At Bat 2010 version will be available on February 28th (at least for iPhone). Looks like there will also be versions for BlackBerry and Android.

A nice story for Fathers' Day on Koyie Hill and his family. Gotta love articles about the real side of baseball players and how much their kids mean to them.

Thoughts after seeing the team play live for the first time this year

Got the chance to head down from LA to SD to catch the game today.  Great seats (5 rows back, staring directly down the 3rd base line), great weather (warm and sunny... like always), and a good...

Who knew it was in Mazatlân, Mexico? I was the gringo who wearing the Cubs hat, laughing at this sign (in front of the No Name Cafe), taking pictures. Funny part was, as I was leaving a guy came up to me and said, "Hey! You from Chicago? I'm from Palatine!", and rustled me up some grub from the place he owned. Can't help but get comments when you wear Cubs gear, no matter where you are!

Negative VORP: When your team is better off without you

16

Even with his atrocious 2nd half, Fukudome still found his way to a Value Over Replacement Player rating of 5.4. Just think - we could have had Corey Patterson roaming the outfield for us with his -19.3 VORP. NEGATIVE 19.3. (yes, I originally got the "worst of" list from The Sports Guy)

Somebody actually wants Will Ohman

I've said it before, and I'll say it again - the Dodgers make some very... interesting moves sometimes. Ish.
