Cubs Snagged a Marlin

Ok, maybe the spelling is wrong.  Marlon Byrd hit his first home run in, well a long time.  Yes, the game kind of went like the Cubs season.  Back and forth.  Now, the Cubs record stands at 18-23. 

I think they did it for the Gauthier. 

So, let’s just see how the Cubs won the game.  They got big hits by the big guys in the top of the order and how about that home run by Reed Johnson?  I don’t know if Reed will ever make it to Cooperstown, but here’s my argument for why he should be considered or at the very least made an honourary member if that makes sense.  Reed Johnson doesn’t get the big numbers but his consistency and heart exemplify what ballplayers should be and that alone is a great reason why he should be there someday.

All right, where did Tony Campana come from?  Holy Crap he’s quick.  Did you see that play for home?  Wow!!

I can’t wait for the weekend.

    It’s funny, Q is using Campana more since his call up than he was using Colvin who was sent down. I think Q is still learning how to use his bench players. I hope he figures it out soon and maybe we can get some more production from them. Have you noticed how so many of our younger players last names start with C…..Campana, Colvin, Castro and Cashner?

    Reed Johnson is the modern day Rex Hudler… minus all the weed.

    Campana was flying around the bases. Amazing that his SB was just the Cubs 9th of the year!!!
