To fill my time lately, I head over to the BFIB twitter page to see how much scum lives under the streets of St. Louis.

Outside of that, I have to see I've not been as eager to learn about the upcoming year as I have been in past years...I wonder why?

I love BCB but only during the year because of Josh Timmers daily Minor League updates (they really are good, and Josh will comment on all the key prospects, but also the no namers that just had a good game).

True story now (no BFIB crap), I tend to go more global baseball than Cubs specific. I love to frequent MinorLeagueBall and read stuff from John Sickles. He obviously will cover all teams.

Also, FanGraphs is great too.

Slow start overall, but comebacks in last two games have been great. Wish they'd just get ahead and stay ahead some games.

Adi's walk-off yesterday was awesome. They had a couple key hits earlier in the game where the hitters did a great job of just protecting the plate and just putting the ball into play. And then to win it with a bomb was nice. Hoping that will get them going.

I think it'll get the hitters riled up. The pitching though...still no signs of life.

Reds have an in-park cubs bandwagon cam.
Pretty funny.
I'll try to find it, unless someone else finds it first.

Reds home games have had plenty of cubs fans since the 70s, but still funny.

and game 2 as well - they were kind enough to let Castro have his home run ball back

I'm predicting that Lester will not be a very good host today.

In honor of Ernie Banks, Cubs & Yanks say let's play 2.

18 innings longest inter league game. Yanks sweep.
