Imagine if the current Cubs team (or anyone from the 2003 or 2004 teams) got together for a fundraiser game like the Cubs did back in the '70s.

Who do you think would make the best team?

I'm guessing that Prior, Wood, Hollandsworth, Derek Lee and Farnsworth might make up a winning basketball team.

Who would you pick?

Name that Cubs shortstop!

Trivia questions:

Who is this pictured?

What is he doing these days?

Is the cigar lit?

Cool

There goes Farnsie

CHICAGO -- The Chicago Cubs reshuffled their bullpen Wednesday, dealing hard-throwing Kyle Farnsworth to the Detroit Tigers for three minor leaguers.

Click on link above for the rest of the story...

Looks like we're down to 6 or 7 remaining from the 2003 Cubs team.

Aramis Ramirez
Joe Borowski
Mark Prior
Mike Remlinger
Kerry Wood
Carlos Zambrano

and Corey Patterson who was injured back then.

Kyle Farnsworth

Here are some pictures from one of Kyle's least favorite games as a Cub.

My wife is very disappointed that Farnsworth is gone. She called him cutie-pie.

I, on the other hand, am mixed about it. I am frustrated that he never reached the incredible potential that I think he has, and worry that he might start showing it now. On the other hand, it is well known that Kyle had a problem with maturity and being a professional athlete. His late nights at the bars and clubs are renown. If he decides to be a professional pitcher, he could be awesome.

I wanted him to learn the split fingered fastball that Bruce Sutter did so well with.
He really needed something...

More photos!

This one was taken after an Astros home run left Wrigley.
I think Kerry Wood served up this one, but I could be wrong. It wasn't Farnsy because he wasn't pitching yet in this game.

Check out what is going on in the bleachers. I thought it was interesting.

Was in Orlando last month. Had a difficult time finding lodging. Florida was booked due to holiday weekends, Daytona, fishing tourneys, PMA and just plain nice weather.

Went to a home church hosted by a family who works for Disney. They arranged for a room for us at a Disney resort.

While we were on the Disney grounds, I wanted to check out the stadium where the Atlanta Braves have spring training.

My photos from that visit can be found here:

http://leovilletownsquare.com/ubbthr...&Number=749300

So far, this is the closest I've even been to spring training.

Does anyone have photos from the Cub's spring training?

I've driven by Hohokam when I was in the Phoenix area once. Never been there in March, though. I'll be in the Sarasota area next week, so I might get to a game at the Pirates or Reds facilities.

Nomar Garciaparra article

Garciaparra moves on

Longtime Red Sox shortstop holds no grudges about deal that sent him to Cubs.

Sample from article:

Face of a franchise? When Garciaparra was traded, New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter, linked to Garciaparra by position and rivalry, blinked and said he couldn't imagine the Red Sox without him.

Thumbs up Cubs tv listings

Cub fans tv listings....

Comcast re-airs some games. Watch game times carefully for reruns. ESPN2 games might include Steve Stone as announcer. All times listed are central time zone.

If you're Tivo'ing or recording the games to vcr, remember to add 10 minutes to the beginning of the telecast for the pregame show and add extra time at the end too for the post game show and in case the game runs over the allotted time.

Hey, remember those photos I shared of 1970's Cubs players playing basketball ?

Today's Chicago Tribune ran an article that mentioned those games. The players they mentioned were from earlier teams, but this is the most that I've read about these games recently.

Double players
When it comes to rooting for baseball in Chicago, these fans love their teams. Plural.

I generally avoid using this gentleman's full name. In my opinion he is not to blame for what happened 2 seasons ago. Am hoping this show reflects that opinion. We'll see.

Definitely not to blame. It's horrible what happened to the poor guy. (I have friend who works for his company, and dealt with some of it.) People really need to get over it.

Commentary: Stone returns to call Cubs

By Charles Elmore

Palm Beach Post Staff Writer

Tuesday, April 12, 2005

...Stone has found gainful employment with ESPN after leaving Cubs broadcaster WGN, and he is calling them like he sees them when the Cubs face the Cardinals next week.

If you're looking for tonight's Cubs/Pirates game on Comcast Sports Chicago, it is scheduled to air on their PLUS network due to the Bulls game being played at the same time.

I called my local cable dudes to find out what channel it was on. Sadly, the PLUS channel is on the digital side, so folks who don't subscribe to a digital service won't be able to watch the game live tonight. It is scheduled to air again at 1:30am on the regular Comcast Sports Chicago channel. So we can set our Tivo's for that if we wish.

-------

Was talking with a Cubs fan fishing at the lake who said that the Cardinals sell an ALL CUBS/Cards season ticket package. Hmmmm.

It would be the one that the producers of the program remember and the one with the best tv coverage. < / h i n t >

If paying for and missing the Cubs games in HDTV (on ESPN due to blackout rules) didn't cause enough disappointment, tonight's game against the Reds ( Paul Wilson vs. Mark Prior) is airing on WCIU...only.

Here is a list of the WCIU games:
www.wciu.com/whatsNewItem.asp?pub_id=738

It seems to me that it might be an idea to air the WCIU games on WGN cable (not local) since the non-local subscribers don't have access to WCIU (a local Chicago station) and you know - the more viewers there are, the more advertising revenue is brought in.

If not WGN cable, then perhaps the games could be "rented out" to non-Chicago PAX stations where there are some ads included and Pax is given some airtime to sell ads for too.

Shows that may be of interest to Chicagoans...

(multiple airings - check listings)

The Sports List "Chicago Sports Moments" Wed 4/27 6:30 PM FSCH (Be sure to record this one!)

And of course, lots of programs right now regarding the Chicago Bulls, Michael Jordan, etc. Check the various ESPN channels if you're interested.
