Bulls vs. Cubs

What does this say about me? Last night the most exciting player in the NBA, our local hero MVP, led his team to a playoff victory at the United Center...and I was watching the Cubs-Cardinals game instead.

I think I may be sick.

By the way, the Cubs had 17 baserunners last night against Cardinals ace Chris Carpenter and scored a whopping 4 runs.

When is the next Bulls game? I think it's officially time to switch.

The All-Traded Team

Today at Just One Bad Century we go through Cubs history to name the "All-Traded Team". These are the best players (by position) traded away by the Cubs.

I just read it again this morning and got a little verklempt.

Cubs love their moms

You may have noticed that some of the Cubs were using pink bats in the game yesterday against the Cincinnati Reds (as were the Reds). That was a tribute to their moms, and breast cancer research.

Fred Mitchell of the Tribune spoke to some of the Cubs players (and Reds manager Dusty Baker) about their moms. That's one sure-fire way to get big tough guys to get emotional.
