Let’s Get It Started

Hey  Chicago what do you say, Cubs will win it all some day. And when they do,  you will party like its 1908. And it will be so much fun to watch.  I’ve been a huge Chicago fan since I started coming to town with the Astros back in 1986. Like just about everyone else in baseball, it has long been my favorite road city. Now I am thrilled to call Chicago home. I love the “bigness” of Chicago. Big buildings -big lake – big food – big personalities……Harry, Ronnie, Ditka, MJ, Clark freaking Griswold  – doesn’t get much bigger than that.

So, it’s on to Opening Day! It will be cold, maybe rainy but for baseball fans there is nothing like it. And even though this shapes up to be another tough year in the win-loss department, we will cling to the words of that great philosopher/pitcher Joaquin Andujar who said baseball can be summed up in one word: “youneverknow”

    Any coherent, sane Cubs fan knows it is going to take probably a couple more years, but I have every confidence in Theo and his crew – and you will probably be around to see it all happen! What a great time to become a part of the Cubs team, Jim – Welcome!

    Welcome it's great having a pitchers point of view – you also must be aware you are taking the place of a very knowledgeable man who was a catcher, I agree this season is going to be something to watch.
