Crosstown Classic…Sort of

The only reason it was sort of like a classic was it wasn’t played in Chicago.  Other than that, yesterday’s game had all the makings of a classic.  Ryan Dempster was in fine form going 4 shutout innings.

Carlos Pena knocked one over the fence showing he might be earning every penny he’s getting paid.

Geovanny Soto got two hits and added an RBI

So far, the Cubs are a respectable 6-8.

Next up is the Reds and I’ve got a toonie on that one.  I’m liking the way the team is progressing and if Dempster pitched the way he did yesterday on Opening Day, I’m sure it’s going to be a classic too.

Only three weeks away!!!

Finally,my sympathies go out to everyone in Japan and their families, it was a horrible disaster yesterday and it’s a lesson in humilty because we just don’t know what’s going to happen.

    The best news is that Pena hit that HR off a left hander.
