    Praying for a rainout

    The weather can't seem to make up it's mind today, as it's raining buckets one minute and then dry the next. The wind is blowing straight out harder than it has at any point this season.

    Apparently Theriot has some sort of stomach virus, so Lou told him to stay home. However, he decided that starting Aaron Miles was a better option than Blanco, and has Fontenot starting at 2nd, as opposed to the guy who is just as good defensively and swinging a hot bat. Also, Jake Fox is in left field.

    He's always been here. It was Miles that was re-habbing in Iowa. Actually, now that I think about it, the Cubs made up an injury to Blanco to bring Miles back. Dammit.

    Blanco went on the DL when they brought up Gorzalanny.

    A disabled Blanco is a better replacement for Theriot than a healthy Aaron Miles. Maybe some of these guys coming back will force Hendry's hand and he'll bite the bullet and DFA him.

    Rather than make a stupid remark, maybe actually give some examples of why you think he doesn't "have a freaking clue"?

    He was forgetting people on the roster, got stuck on a "who's available" sort of question. I think that's what he's getting at.

    It wasn't his best interview, but I have trouble thinking he doesn't know what's going on.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    Wow... The Cubs fantasy camp looks like the coolest thing ever.

    And how awesome is Pat Hughes? I love that guy.

    Haha that's what I was getting it. Not that he didn't have a clue of what he's doing just stumbled through the whole interview.

    If there is as much rain behind it as Len and Bob were saying, they should just call it now so the team can get on the plane. It isn't like the Cubs and Pirates don't play 6 more time or anything.

    Hasn't rained in an hour and a half at the stadium, but it sounds like they are going to wait for the front at 4 to go through first.

    Watching reruns of Coach is way better than watching the Cubs most times.
