Alright, so I don't have a lot of time to leave a post and I do realize that that is kind of lame considering this is my inaugural appearance on LB, but hey it happens. And yes I'd like to apologize for not getting my ass in gear earlier, say anytime last season, but hey it happens. Anyway, anyone who knows me knows my tendency to rant and say "go off the deep end" so I hope it wasn't a mistake for you all to invite me to the blog. I might drive you crazy with in a few weeks if the Cubs start heading down the DUSTY Road again this year. (Is that funny, I can't really tell?)
Anyhow, I just got done watching the game (I Tivo'd it, best invention ever) and much like my arch nemisis BRANT-MAN i have to say overall I was very impressed. I agree with the evil BRANT-MAN's blog on just about all counts so instead of retyping it myself I'm simply going to elaborate on it slightly.
One thing the simple minded B-Man forget to address was the spark that all of our recently acquired speed set off. I mean, did anyone else see how many infield hits we had? It was incredible, very effective and a very welcome addition to the offense. Also, I know Cedeno's offense wasn't great, but I don't know if I've ever seen anyone lay down such a beautiful bunt with an 0-2 count and then beat it out for a hit....incredible. He earned major points with me for that one. And lastly, how about Adam Dunn looking like an absolute moron several times. I counted 3. I can't tell you how much I enjoyed that. I think he's just a big ol MOOK and it was nice to see him act like one. Ahhhhhhhhhh, and how could I forget Todd Walker. I'm a huge Walker supporter and I'm glad he came through today. Definitely one of my favorite cubbies and I think he should start every game.
So that's it for now. I guess this turned out to be a decent length afterall. Hopefully we'll keep this up and make it a season to remember.
* How about Manic Matty
