That might have been the entire bleacher crowd that day.

You're right, Al. In fact, guys like that can become a distraction and a negative when things aren't going well for them or the team.

Doesn't look as bad as the still shot in the photo when you see the actual replay.

Tom Selleck in Magnum PI is a bizarre handsome reference in 2014 and I honor you with a 21 porn mustache salute.

If by "nice" you mean marketable to the large percentage of Americans that know nothing about art then yes, his artwork is nice.

Interesting idea but as Al said, not going to happen.

Is the interior of Wrigley Field supposed to be on fire?

I get sick going the other way. Sinuses dry out in the desert and I often end up with a problem.

I can see both sides on this one.

And Jose Cardenal came through the Giants' system as well.

True. That's why I asked the question. Knowing this I'm not sure why Al was snarky about the Cubs not filling holes in the middle of the lineup.

Al, you lament the Cubs not signing two big offensive forces for the middle of the lineup.

How do the '69 Yankees make it to the World Series and why doesn't Kennedy address the '69 Cubs' bullpen?

Ditka wasn't a great coach with the Bears. He just had a couple of seasons with an outrageously talented team.

As someone who has had a couple of minor skin cancers, largely from sitting in the bleachers for two decades prior to the sunscreen era

If there was an MVP from a last place team in the NL in '87 it should have been Gwynn.

Not a third but there are a lot of people in there who are in the Hall of Very Very Good as Jeff put it. And his knees shouldn't matter at

I was at a game when he was bowed to by the bleacher fans and by his teammates after making a running catch in a game against the Astros in '87.

I thought Al was kidding about Giansanti giving way to Baez because of where they rank in the system.

I agree with holding him up until ready but if this guy's as good as hoped, the arbitration clock will be moot. They'll sign him to a longer deal before arbitration.

If he's being brought up to play second then he needs to go to AAA for a while.

Didn't get to the bottom here before posting about why Chance isn't on there. This is the reason.

Frank Chance didn't play for the Cubs in Wrigley Field. This is about the last hundred years only, right?

Right now Bob Dernier is the best center fielder. Not sure who would vote for someone besides Banks at short but darn it, people have.

The Wrigley playing surface looked like hell in the mid to late 70s. And there were some rotten winters in there.
