I’ll be watching the Cubs/Pirates this afternoon. I’ll be having a center cut rib chop, corn otc, green beans, and a chocolate milkshake in my brand spanking new Hamilton Beach drink mixer. Then a cigar while I watch the game this afternoon.
Going into this series I was hoping for a split. Now I am just hoping we win one of the remaining four games so we don’t get swept.
By the way, Carson Kelly is hitting .264 with 17 homeruns.

Anybody getting sick and tired of Goldfinger?
He hit .281 at Springfield. That translates, generally speaking, into what, about a .240 average in the big leagues?
What are the odds this Aristotle Onassis guy goes crazy against us in this four game series?
Pugs? I looked for those online. They have a lot of similar ones out there so I bought one from Amazon.
And the Cubs now trail the Phillies 10-0. Realmuto a grand slam.
On a good note, the Cubs trail the Phillies tonight 4-0. Its still early though, and anything can happen in that bandbox.
And speaking of din-din, I just purchased a shake mixer off of Amazon. Now all I need are some good recipes for chocolate shakes..:)
Be advised that I am now in possession of my Walther PPK handgun.
And I sure hope the Phillies do us a favor this week. The other good part is that it looks like the Pirates are starting to get things back together again. That’s good because the Cubs head to Pittsburgh this weekend.
Guys, you got it all wrong. This will be the lineup:
Maybe this Randy Arizona guy can be for us like Aristotle Onassis has been for the Reds lately.
So, we are done with the Dodgers in 2020 by the middle of April???
Still too much inter-league play. Need less inter-league play, cut down the 19 games against division opponents to around 14, and play a few more games against teams in your own league.

Lane Thomas with a chance to hit his 2nd grand slam in two innings!
And…..uh, shoot, he strikes out.
What a dud..:)
Grand Slam by Thomas and the Cards come back to lead 9-8!
C’mon bullpen, hold it now!
For my late lunch today, which will commence about the time of the first pitch in the Cubs/Reds game, will be sausage patties, green beans, corn otc, and some strawberries. Maybe even a Klondike bar..:)
Hope Aristotle Onassis can continue to pound on the Cubs pitching. Today its Jon Lester.
Daggone folks, that Aristotle Onassis guy from the Reds that replaced Puig hit three homeruns for the Reds on Saturday night. Is he going to be a major pain for us next weekend in that four game series?
On a good note, the Reds have the early 3-0 lead on Hendricks and the Cubs. Aristotle Socrates and Senzel have homered in the 2nd.
When is DeJong going to figure out how to hit the pitch up in the strike zone? That’s what he struck out on during the Wednesday night game against the Dodgers. They pitch him high in the strike zone and he cant hit it. The league has caught up to him. When is he going to adjust?
Cubs leading the Reds 9-5 in the 7th. Looks like we might be four games out heading into the Pittsburgh game on Friday night.
Martinez comes in and allows two hits and a wild pitch.
As I’ve stated many times, you just never know what you are going to get with him.
Put me on the side that wouldn’t mind to see him go.
On a good note…..Oakland leads the Cubs 11-0 in the 5th. Assume the A’s will hang on here.

For din-din this afternoon its sausage patties in the air fryer, corn otc, green beans, a Klondike ice cream bar and a Dr. Pepper.
Oh, and I went and bought myself a handgun today. Its a Walther PPK. Going to get the license to carry a firearm. I figure with all these shootings I am going to at least be able to shoot back. I get to Walmart often, along with Home Depot, Rural King, Lowes, etc, etc.

I’ll be recording this game tonight for my winter fix when I need it. If we aren’t careful we are going to be 4-5 games out in the next day or two. Cubs appear to be on the hot streak that I have been dreading.
Updated, temporarily, my profile pic from Whitey Herdog to the Klondike Bars I bought this morning at the grocery. Did this just especially for Cardinal in France and Pugs..:)
Cardinal in France wrote…….By the way Rats, what is this Klondike Bar of which you speak and, apparently, consume large quantities of? I’ve never heard of it.
Its sort of a square ice cream bar. Vanilla ice cream covered with chocolate. Keep them in the freezer.
Keep an eye on Ozuna these last several weeks. In my mind what happens to him in the off-season will be determined between now and the end of the year. If he continues at his current pace I expect him to be gone at the end of the year. That would be two years without coming close to what he did in Miami. However, if he does fairly well between now and the end of the year I expect he will be back in St. Louis in 2020.
Lunch today was a center cut rib chop, corn otc, Sunkist Orange, a piece of chocolate layer cake and a Klondike bar. For my LATE supper tonight during the game it will be a double bacon and egg sandwich with my last piece of cherry pie from the Gasthof (the amish restaurant).
I totally agree about Munoz and Edman. They are both utility players. They might get on a hot streak and some think we really have something but, as you say, if they play everyday they get exposed. What is Edman hitting now, around .250???
