And they didn't put it in the recap.  If you hadn't made the second one in the ninth I think they would have.  Now I'll have to wait for the rebroadcast.

  We all still love him, know he's a rental, and hope he comes back.  We know we can't have them all back though and we've known that for years.  My preference for who gets to stay would be Baez first then Contreras, Rizzo, Bryant in that order and we have Willson through next year.  As you may have noticed, from an aesthetics standpoint I'd much watch a jaw dropping double play than a towering home run.  I didn't see the ceremony, but I'll watch it later.  The one decent thing Ricketts has done lately has been to take all the non-national broadcasts away from the three or four local Chicago stations that were carrying them and create a Cubs network that not only has them ALL but rebroadcasts them all three or four times as well.   A godsend when you have a puppy.  It might be what has allowed me to be so lax about actually getting to the park.  I should add though that Ricketts only gets credit for doing a good thing as long as my local cable continues to carry the network.

{#Yes}  I think he has become my favorite color man of all time even though I probably learned more baseball from Steve Stone than anyone other than my dad.  I think my favorite JD line still might be from his very first Cubs broadcast which I've told a couple of times here.  I liked him right away.

Ooh. Very good.

Yeah it didn't take Roberts long to figure out how to work the rules to his advantage. I think there were 8 intentional walks last night. Obviously the visiting team should never allow a good hitter to hit if there's a base open but as long as there's a loophole, Roberts will be the first to exploit it. I'm not complaining, really, about that (the Manfred Man is an all-purpose complaint) because I thought it was fun in a weird way to see 3B Justin Turner make several putouts in shallow Right.

Fell asleep listening to the Doyers/Padres game last night. 1-0 Padres into the 8th, Doyers hit a solo HR to send it to extras... woke up at some point to hear that the Padres had been no-hit for 9 innings. Dave Roberts was walking any good hitter in extras because a single would lose the game, so he dodged a few hits there, maybe. A couple of WOW errors including the Padres forgetting to double-switch so the pitcher's spot came up to bat. 15th inning both teams scored 2! Then the Doyers put it away in the 16th. 

Those two teams really have had the most epic games this year.
