    Did you see how laughingly empty Camden Yards was last night? I thought they had fans.

    Just thought I would quietly mention that the Detroit Tigers are now 4-0. A real nice start for Manager Jim Leyland. Chris Shelton, ex-Toledo Mud Hen, is batting something like .750......with five home runs in four games. Must have been all the Tony Packo's Hungarian Hot Dogs he ate when he was a "muddie". Perhaps Nancy Packo is putting steroids in the dogs.

    Jim Leyland grew up in the Toledo suburb of Perrysburg. He has family in Liberty Center, the bedroom community this Bear lived in for about 15 years. Leyland did a great job with the Florida Marlins (winning a World Series) but struck out with Colorado (quitting because of "stress"?).

    Somewhat-related: The folks in Detroit continue to discuss that great old ball park, Tiger Stadium. They are trying to figure out what the heck to do with it, to save it from the wrecking ball.

    I was a regular at "the corner". (Of course, I was also a regular at the bar across the street. I think it was called Hoots. Older dude ran the joint and had great stories of a lot of the old-time players.)

    Somewhat-related, again: Lou Gehrig's last game was in Detroit.

    So typical Cubby, one win against a superior team and they negate the past 98 years of futility and think they are headed to the classic. Wood and Prior are already injured, and when they come back Dusty will figure out a way to get them hurt, and then blame it on the Cubs radio team. But it doesn't matter as long as the Trixies and Chads can enjoy Old Style and talk about who is going to be at John Barleycorn after the game...Oh there is a baseball game?, I thought it was a beer garden w/ a stiff cover charge.









    Just razzing ya there O small bear fans

    Well kind of... I make my annual trip to the ivy covered burial ground in August, looking forward to a good time and friendly ribbing as always

    Ya know, LBuc, I've never been to Wiggly Field but I'd sure like to visit that shrine. Maybe we should convince some you-know-who and all of us get up there some weekend.

    Go Giants

    Cubs beat the Cards yesterday too. AND I get to watch the game tonight on ESPN.

    Oh and the Rockies are 2 outs from SWEEPING the Padres. Did I mention they are doing this away from Denver.

    Cubs and Rockies in the NLCS. You heard it here first.

    Hoot's is now where the Home Plate was, they have done quite a bit of work to the Home Plate. I was a regular of the Batter's Box, and of Nancy Whiskey's/Harrison Bar.

    There is not much hope for reuse of the old building. Wayne State can't use it as it is a division 2 school (with 35,000 students??). There has been talk of Condos around a village green (old diamond), health clubs, shopping malls, even ripping it down for a Walmart!

    Wow even the Tigers are doing well this year. My drive in took me by the old ball park, the bars in the neighborhood all have tents set up in alleys or nearby parking lots for the revellers to party early, catch a bus to the game, then come back to party some more.

    Jaxpra, I do believe that's what you said after the first of the THREE losses...

    But that's ok, we are gracious enough NOT to rub it in too bad...

    RJ, let's nail that visit down, we're up for it. There's nothing like watching a game at Wrigley, well maybe Fenway (if you're a Sox fan)...
    Bring on Spring Training...

    It's still VERY early, but the Mazzone-less Braves looks like they might have more pitching issues than what they have overcome in the past.

    I checked the Braves schedule and the Giants aren’t in Atlanta until the last week in August for a mid-week series. Bummer

    Hell, I'll fly for about an hour, spend less than that, and sign your book this weekend.

    So, we were a bit disappointed with our trip to B-more. There was not an Orioles fan in sight (in the streets or the ballpark). It was as if Fenway Park had been moved 450 miles to the southwest. The O's were booed in there own stadium throughout the night. I think it may have had something to do with the rain delay, with only the hardiest of fans and those that travelled great distances remaining for the game. But, a great game none the less. Schilling was on top, again.

    You know more about baseball than you thought. From Wiki

    The Cubs fell into a lengthy doldrum after their early 1900s Glory Years, broken only by their pennant in the war-shortened season of 1918. Around that time, chewing-gum tycoon William Wrigley obtained majority ownership of the Cubs, and things started to turn around, especially after they acquired the services of astute baseball man William Veeck, Sr..
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chicago...ry_three_years

    More from the Cubs web site

    The Tribune Company buys the club from the Wrigley family for $20.5 million, ended the longest continuous operation of a franchise by the same family in one city. 1981

    Chewing-gum magnate William Wrigley Jr. purchases control of the Cubs and renames Weeghman Park to Cubs Park. In 1926, Cubs Park becomes Wrigley Field. Philip K. Wrigley assumes control after father's death in 1932. In 1977, William Wrigley takes over the club after the death of his father, Philip. 1921

    For the Cubs Fans out there.

    http://www.theonion.com/content/node/47426

    Highlights:

    CHICAGO—Despite their impressive 4-2 start and the fact that their pitching and offense appears to be clicking on all cylinders, Cubs manager Dusty Baker said Wednesday that he has "no doubt" that his team will be able to turn things around in time to miss the playoffs.
    "Sure, other teams may look just as awful on paper, but the Cubs have all the intangibles—the inability to play as a cohesive unit, management that always seems to make the wrong moves, a storied history of crushing, tragic defeats despite favorable odds," said Chicago-area resident Matt Grant. "No winning streak can get that lose-at-any-cost mentality out of our Cubbies' heads."
    "Growth is inevitable and desirable, but destruction of community character is not. The question is not whether your part of the world is going to change. The question is how." -- Edward T. McMahon, The Conservation Fund
