I take the position that if you are going to name a guy an honorary member of your String, then you Gob damn well better be ready to provide some regular updates of his antics. Hearing no objection, I will take John Daly. Someone else can pick up Bill Murray. Continue reading
Our own Javier Baez is apparently kicking ass for the Puerto Ricans this week in the World Baseball Classic, which apparently is a thing that I didn’t even know about. Well yesterday Javy laid down a filthy no look tag on a throw down from Yadier Molina, and was celebrating before the ball even got there. Continue reading
MLB is adding a new rule that allows a team to intentionally walk a batter with just a signal from the dugout. The pitcher will no longer have to throw four pitches outside the strike zone. Is this a bad idea? Well, who’s to say, but yes, yes it is. Continue reading
Here’s also what it is like to see Aroldis Chapman up close:
3,741 pitches thrown 100 mph since 2010 (that was one of them). Chapman threw 47% of them.
Kind of a metaphor for life, this video. When you fall down, you gotta get back up. No one ever drowned from falling into the water, but from staying there, or something. But then just when get back up and dust yourself off, down you go again. And then Trump gets elected. What a world.
The Cubs went to the White House today and it looks like a good time was had by all. Rizzo wore his Ron Burgundy jacket, and Theo gave the Prez an official pardon for being a Sox fan, as well as a W flag to fly at the future presidential library in Chicago. The Cubs also presented our president with a lifetime admission pass to Wrigley, which he noted was “NON TRANSFERABLE.” Lots of laughs all around, and a nice Chicago sendoff for President Obama in his last week in office.

I feel like sheep get a bad rap, am I right? I mean, sheep are on the shitty end of all the parables and sayings. The wolf, sheep and sheep dog story is told in all the war movies, and being the sheep is clearly the worst option. “You can shear a sheep many times, but kill him only once.” Real nice. The “So many sheep, so little time” bumper sticker that Satan made up back in the 90’s was so wrong on many levels, but especially from the perspective of the sheep. Political followers on both side of the aisles are always called sheep, unlike the thoughtful individuals who give deep, considerate thought to all the issues, and then vote Republican every time. The list just goes on and on. Plus its gotta suck getting herded all over the place with a dog nipping at your ass every day. Sheep life has just gotta suck. Well, these sheep got some payback, and good for them. Probably will be a 15 yard penalty on that list hit, but it was worth it. Team sheep on this one.
