3 Interesting Stats (Hill, Theriot & Lee)

From this article posted in the Trib. today: 1. Winter ball hasn't proven a cure for Rich Hill's wildness. The Cubs lefty appears on the verge of a release from Aragua (Venezuela) after walking 19 in 191/3 innings, resulting in a 7.45 ERA 2. The Cubs' Ryan Theriot was the only major-leaguer to reach double figures in errors (14), grounded into double plays (19) and caught stealing (13) last season 3. Cubs' Derrek Lee grounded into the second-most double plays in the majors with 27, it's worth noting that no hitter had more chances. He came up in 180 potential double-play situations. Justin Morneau (177) and Albert Pujols (173) were the only other hitters to get more than 166 such chances. …

Show Us Your BCB T-Shirt I ran this idea by Al, and he liked it. I thought I'd be fun to get folks to upload pictures of them in their BCB t-shirt. It gives more exposure to Project 3000 and is also a fun way to share who we are. Al noted "It would be especially cool if people who don't live in Chicago would take the photo at a recognizable location in wherever they live. If you do this, remind people that it's just for fun -- I know some are sensitive about privacy, but if anyone is willing to post a pic like this, it'd be great." So let's see it, BCB pride! (p.s. if you all like the idea, recommend this FanShot... it will keep the exposure up and give folks who want to participate time to upload there photo.) (p.s.s. Order your BCB/Project 3000 t-shirt here)

This may only be interesting to techy people, but a day or so ago a new browser called Cuil was all the buzz. So I decided to try it out and I typed "Chicago Cubs blog" into their engine. The results were spotty, but they had a box off to the side for related search results. I got a kick out of the 8 Cubs players they thought were good results to return.
