Get your Ejection Seat ready!

That’s right folks, get it ready when Mike Quade comes to town.  I didn’t see the call, but I’m assuming Quade was wrong.  This brings me to another point which I’d like to see changed in baseball.  Why does a manager bother arguing plays and calls if it doesn’t change the umpire’s mind?  Now, I know it’s a touchy subject but I think they should start a clean slate if and when they bring replay into the game.  There’d be a lot more Perfect Games if there was replay.  I just think it’s time.

Ok, Alfonso Soriano has quickly become the Chicago Cubs Hero this season, blasting his tenth home run of the season and helping the Cubs beat the Diamondbacks 5-3.  That Cubs jersey I’m wearing in my profile pick is a Soriano jersey.  This home run now has him tied with Ryan Braun for the lead.  Way to go, Soriano!!!!

Matt Garza got his first win and every Cubs fan now can breath again.

I’m looking forward to today’s game.  It should be a good one.

Also, according to Crzblue’s Dodger Blue World, there’s a throwback game with the Dodgers on Wednesday. She’s curious to what uniform the Cubs will be wearing.  Me too.

    Please don’t let them wear those ugly baby blue pintstriped road jerseys from the 70s. Oh those were ugly. As storied as the Cubs and Dodgers are, I don’t think they should intro throwbacks (I’m a purist after all) but of course, the marketing departments could care less about me and my wants.

    You know, I think I agree. I like retro jerseys but some things are better left in the past. However, the Ottawa Senators are using retro “barbershop pole” jerseys next year with just a simple “O”, which I love!!! I never liked the Trojan look they introduced 20 years ago. The barbershop look was synonymous with Ottawa for years and they dropped the look when they won the franchise. Like beer, sports fans are brand loyal. What if the yankees changed their stripes? Hell to pay.
