Cubs 3 and 0

Yesterday's weather was beautiful, today's was colder than the reception Barry Bonds would have got from Cubs fans, had he been in the lineup. I overheard a conversation centered around why Barry Bonds has such a soft, high- pitched voice, and then they pointed out the correlation between steroids and shrinking testicles. Bud Selig had a press conference in the media room at HoHoKam today. I couldn't make it over, because I was busy getting ready for the game, but I could see it was standing-room only. ESPN will tell us what he said. I imagine steroids came up. Although I doubt they mentioned Bond's testicles.

So the weather was cool and blustery, but 12,612 still came out and saw Cubs beat the Giants 8 to 2.
Only 191 games away from going undefeated this year!

It was great to see Shawon Dunston and Bob Dernier as honorary 1st base coaches during today's game. When announced, they got a big hand from the fans. Speaking of former Cubs, Moises Alou played today. When he walked onto the field before the game, a small but vocal group of Cub fans gave him such an ovation, he came over and signed autographs, then went into the Cubs dugout and hung out a bit with his ex teammates. I miss announcing his name, that was a fun one- Moises Alooooooouuuuuuu! Even though I could only give the brief, opponent intro, I could hear the fans continuing with the Aloooooouuuu.

Ryan Dempster looked good in his brief pitching stint today. If he continues to show that kind of stuff, the Cubs are gonna have one scary pitching staff- scary for the other teams that is.

I may not write anything until the next Cubs home game, which is Tuesday against the Oakland Athletics.
Talk to you then, Tim
