Cool

I'm hoping for either Bob Brenly or Joe Girardi. Either are more likely than the others to understand the challenges that playing 81 games a year in Wrigley presents and may have a plan to overcome those challenges and win.

My choice would be Brenly, because he's been watching, commenting on and traveling with this team for a couple years and knows it the best.

One thing I didn't like about the Dusty years is that he was interviewed quite a bit and the players were not often interviewed. I want to hear what the players have to say...and I like hearing their accents, etc.

It seems like in past years, if a player was shown being interviewed often on tv, he was soon traded. Even if what the player said was always a positive comment.

I'm pretty upset it's Pinella too. Yet another "proven" "veteran" "old-school" manager who "knows what it takes to win." I'm sure we'll hear all those cliches, I'm sure the team will sign a bunch of new "professional hitters" and "proven veterans" who "have what it takes", and the Cubs are unfortunately doomed to more mediocrity, with the occasional fluke good year thrown in...

I have never been as fed up with this team as I am now. I would have been delighted with Girardi, and even a 95-loss season next year with a bunch of fresh young faces, rebuilding for the future. But honestly, Pinella is a joke. I want to scream, I'm sick to my stomach. If the team decides to go the Yankee route, with a $200MM contract budget, they have a shot. Otherwise, it's gonna be more of the same. I hope I'm wrong, but I don't think I am...

DianaMo - thanks for finding that interesting article on Williams and Hendry - I agree - Williams hasn't done anything great, and has made some bad moves, but got very lucky.

WGN radio said it will be Pinella this morning. It isn't confirmed yet by the team.

I was hoping for Girardi. Oh well.

Numb3rs & Baseball's Secret Formula Sabermetrics

Lengthy article regarding the Sabermetrics episode of the Numb3rs tv series and the Baseball's Secret Formula program.

November 16, 2006
Schrodinger's Bat
The Numb3rs Game

Sample from article...

Quote:
Back in the real world, performance metrics, even advanced ones devised
by unemployed high school dropouts, are far too blunt an instrument to
approach the subject of PEDs on an individual level. As Nate Silver
discussed in the chapter "What do Statistics Tell Us About Steroids?" in
Baseball Between The Numbers "unexplained changes in performance are the
norm and not the exception,"
and even when analyzing players in the
aggregate who we know used because they were caught, there is no
statistically significant change detectable in their performance after
they were caught and presumably stopped using.

Cool My Boys - TBS Sitcom on life of a Cubs sportswriter

My Boys - TBS Sitcom on life of a Cubs sportswriter

Back in October I posted about an upcoming sitcom from TBS about the life of a Wrigley sportswriter.

It aired for the first time last night.

I was hoping for a show that was more about a sportswriter's life at Wrigley Field, but instead it is about the dating adventures of a lady sportswriter for the SunTimes and her time spent hanging out with friends away from the ballpark, with occasional references and glimpses of Wrigley, but not much beyond that.

I'm really not interested in seeing a "dating series". I'd prefer to see a program about life at Wrigley. The players, the fans, the vendors, security, the superfans, fireman across the street, scenes from the El, etc. I guess I had hoped for something more like the CBS series "Clubhouse" and less like "Sex in the City".

Anyway, here is the TBS website for this series...

http://www.tbs.com/shows/myboys/

and here are some reviews of the show:

Question Any chance that this seat is formerly from Wrigley Field?

Any chance that this seat is formerly from Wrigley Field?

I've heard that the Cubs sell or auction off the chairs as they replace them.

My neighbor mentioned that his dad bought one.

I found this one when walking the dog and was wondering if I found a bit of Wrigley History...or just an old park seat.

Hi! I'm in the process of uploading my photos from the Cubs/Cardinals 12-3 September 10, 2007 game at Wrigley Field.

They're at:

and so far include the following topics...

PS: Of the past 3 Cubs games I've attended, they've scored 33 runs.

So I'm averaging 11 runs per Cubs game!

I think the Cubs pitchers should leave me some tickets!

Thumbs up Derrek Lee @ NBC's ER

Who here watched the Wrigley Field scenes on ER last night?
(or did the weather reports pre-empt the program?)

My family noticed a few things...

1. The "players" around the batting cage didn't look like real Cub players, simply because they all were wearing the knee high socks and wearing their uniforms properly.

2. There were fans behind John Stamos in the box seats, yet no-one at all in the stands behind the batting cage along the right field side.

3. The child sure looked healthy. He didn't have to go to the game in a wheelchair. If he was in a wheelchair, he'd have to sit further back in the stands behind home plate...unless that has been changed.

4. ER's website offers a 2 minute video from each episode, however this week's snippet didn't include anything from the Wrigley story.

Gene Wojciechowski quotes the scene at
http://sports.espn.go.com/espn/colum...8&sportCat=mlb

Quote:
DERREK LEE
(handing Joshua a signed ball)
This is for you. Whole team signed it. Good luck in Baltimore.

(Joshua takes the ball, can't find words. Gates nudges him.)
JOSHUA
Wow … thanks, Mr. Lee.
(then)
You know … I gotta tell you … your opponents have a statistical tendency to pitch you high and outside. Wind's blowing out today, you lay off that stuff and you'll murder 'em.

DERREK LEE
I'll keep that in mind.
According to Wojciechowski, we can look for a January 2008 episode of ER that will deal directly with Leber's congenital amaurosis (LCA). I wonder if Derrek Lee might appear in that episode also????

Also, check out Sosa's 2007 stats:

One ironic thing is that Sosa was traded for Jerry Hairston, Jr. whose name has come up in the report.

Cool Mid-Atlantic Sports Network : Cubs/Nationals game from July 3, 2005

The Mid-Atlantic Sports Network is also airing a Cubs game from the past.

This will not be a winning game for the Cubbies, as the MASN is a team owned regional sports network that airs the Washington Nationals and Baltimore Orioles games.

Since there are Cubs fans everywhere, I thought I'd share this listing.

Nationals Classics

"2005: Washington Nationals at Chicago Cubs"
From July 3, 2005.

Airdate: Tuesday, December 18, 2007
1:00 pm - 4:30 pm, MASN

Lightbulb Sport Science - Cheap Shots

Fox Sports airs a program on "Sports Science".

An episode called "Cheap Shots" aired last night. It will probably air again. Ask your Tivo about it.

Sport Science
Episode 4
Cheap Shots: What does a Cheap Shot feel like in Sports?



Quote:
There are rules in sports for a reason. And in this episode of Sport Science, we will show you what would happen without them. We will test what the consequences of being hit in the head with a bean ball without a helmet on are. What does getting low blowed in boxing really feel like? And, oh yeah, being hit square in the head with baseball bat or hockey stick really hurts.
