Nick Offerman & Craig Robinson: Cubs vs Sox (via schmessssica)

No. 10 in the series. Obviously, Theriot is talking to Furcal and/or the outfield.

No. 7 in the series.

Babe Ruth and Peter Gammons share little in common beyond baseball and beginning their careers in Boston but, 79 years apart, the two came up with the same description of Wrigley Field: “A dump.”

Richard Rothschild, a Chicago-area writer, has attended more than 100 games at Wrigley Field since 1989. I have attended zero. I think the column is persuasive, but I am interested in your thoughts, friends.

Fortunately, Albert Pujols is not in the Phillies lineup tonight.

The problem wasn’t Pujols. The problem was the (game-tying) at-bat. We should know better than this. We play like a Triple-A team. This is embarrassing, embarrassing for the team and the owners. Embarrassing for the fans. Embarrassed- that’s the word for this team.

We should know better than this. We should know better than what we (did) on the field. We should know that Ryan Theriot is not a good fastball hitter. We should know that as a team. We should play better here. We stink. That’s all I’ve got to say.

If you think Albert Pujols will be a Cub next year, you’re embracing fantasy, writes Joe Cowley. If Pujols signed with the Cubs, writes Bernie Miklasz, he would be doomed to many years of losing. (Via Buster Olney Blog)

Dear ESPN,

They stop becoming “conspiracy theorists” when “The Worldwide Leader in Sports” starts publishing mildly suggestive photos with comment-prompting captions. Doesn’t this photo just suggest that Pujols had been squirt in the left eye with lemon juice? Or that he was showing off his pirate impression? Or that Hendry was giving Pujols “the ole corpse hand” to try to affect Pujols’ hitting? Maybe Pujols was taking a vision test when Hendry snuck up on him from the peripheral? My point is, … shut up. It’s May 11th and Pujols isn’t going anywhere.

Besides, the Cubs have Carlos Pena at first base.


Mr. McGeorge

This used to be a headline-grabbing matchup, but it doesn’t feel like one right now. I am a big fan of Chris Carpenter, and I’ll be the first to acknowledge that the Cardinals haven’t given him much offensive or defensive support this season, but he hasn’t pitched like an ace so far either. Big Z hasn’t been very good so far either, even though he has managed a 4-1 win-loss record. I am looking forward to the game, but it just doesn’t feel like the event that it used to be.

Thank goodness, the Cardinals 3, 4, and 5 starters are all having great seasons so far (see, 2, 3, and 5 in NL).
