Enough talk. Let's rock.

Seriously. We've been over-analyzing every inch of every matchup for the last month+. Relax a bit, kill some time at work tomorrow, and stop watching that clock. Less than 48 hours until kickoff.T...

Previewing Wisconsin's Trip to Canada

Will any freshmen emerge? Can Josh Gasser regain his sophomore year form? Is Frank Kaminsky ready to go beast-mode? Is Sam Dekker unstoppable? Yes, eventually, hopefully, NO DOUBT.

My video of the snow lightning taken on an iPhone 4, 2/1/11. Picture was taken about 9 stories up in Lincoln Park. Also, I couldn't help but 'laugh' after I saw it. Took a page right out of Marbles' playbook: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zV6CbVDcI_c

How Carefully Are You Reading Those Pick 13 Plan Emails?

28

As any of you on the Season Ticket Waiting List know, the Cubs have been in full-on assault mode over selling their Pick 13 Plans. I kind of grazed over the first few emails, but when I actually sat down and read this morning's... well, I was a bit surprised to see the verbiage that the Cubs have resorted to in hopes of selling more tickets. Personally, I think this is a pretty bold marketing strategy. But the Cubs gotta do what the Cubs gotta do to put more butts in the seats. (Click the image in that post to see a full size version)

A New-Age Called Shot?

14

A day earlier, Mariners analyst Mike Blowers predicted that Matt Tuiasosopo would hit his first career home run in his second at bat, on a 3-1 fastball to the second deck in left field. Linked above is their call of his second at bat. Insane. And rest assured, this is 100% legit.

My Weekend at Miller Park

I originally started typing this as a comment in the game recap, but it got pretty long so I figured I'd share it as a FanPost.  With all the recent crap on the sidebar I figured people might be...

Nick Adenhart Killed in Car Accident

59

This is a truly awful story. Here's a 22 year old kid fresh off probably the best start in his career... and someone runs a red light, killing 3 people. The person fled the scene but was soon arrested and taken to the hospital. Thoughts go out to his family and the Angels' organization. For those who don't know who he is, Adenhart was one of the top prospects in the Angels' organization.

Big Unit to the Giants

Just saw 'breaking news' on ESPNews that Randy Johnson is signing with the Giants.  Didn't catch any contract terms but I'm safely assuming it's a 1 year deal.  Can't find a link yet, either.  SF...
