1st game of the Crosstown Classic – Called due to RAIN. Not surprising seeing as it was monsooning there. There is no make up date scheduled yet.
And while we were waiting to hear what the call was going to be about the game, we got to listen to Ozzie rant about Wrigley… again. I’m so tired of hearing about it. All right Ozzie, we get it. You don’t like our stadium. You have made your message clear. The media hawks should just stop asking about it.
They also talked to Ryan Theriot before the game 🙂 (Just thought I’d mention it)
Today’s match up was supposed to be John Danks (4-5) vs Zambrano (4-2). But instead, tomorrow we’ll see Danks (4-5) against Dempster (4-3). Zambrano has been pushed back to Thursday against the Sox.
One of the best quotes of the night:
“What do I need to show fire for?” Piniella said. “I’m not a dragon.”
The Cubs and Sox are tied at 33 games apiece when it comes to playing each other. The next game will give one team the advantage of the other. And in all of the games they’ve played against each other, the Cubs scored 322 runs and the Sox have scored 323. Crazy stuff how close they are.
Other little notes:
- Von Joshua will make his Cubs debut Wednesday instead of Tuesday now.
- The Cubs brought Jake Fox back up because Waddell went on the 15-day DL. He is on the disabled list to be evaluated and treated for a non baseball related issue.
So tomorrow we will begin the Crosstown Classic.
College World Series:
Anyone else keeping tabs?
I am rooting for LSU, of course. They beat both Arkansas and Virginia so they will play friday against the winner of the Virginia/Arkansas game on Wednesday.
And CS Fullerton and SO. Miss. have been eliminated form the CWS.

Yesterday I got to meet Mike Fontenot.
He was super nice. And he def cleans up well 🙂
Anyone see him and Micah Hoffpauir on My Boys? They were actually pretty good, haha.
