For the first time this season, the Cubs have a five game winning streak! Wait, my apologies, the Iowa Cubs have a five game winning streak. Sorry to try and wake Chicago fans from this coma inducing year.
Tough to get a read on these I-Cubs. They go from hot to cold in a heartbeat. Probably won't be a playoff team in the PCL, my guess is third place. But they will be entertaining. And to about 99 percent of people who go to I-Cub games, that's all that matter.
What a stink bomb of a week for local baseball teams. Cubs, Cards, Twins all swept, and the White Sox lose two of three to Washington. Is it football season yet?
Lot of comments rolling in on the "What's Bugging Andy" regarding the Des Moines Register. I want to tread lightly on this as I've only been back for three months now and haven't known everyone who lost a job. I and my dad always read Sean Keeler and had some good discussions on his columns. Though we work in a business where firings of coaches is routine and newsworthy, you hate to see anyone lose a job, and Andy made a great point about staff reductions lowering the overall quality of what viewers and readers get. What's scary and sad is that it seldom ever has anything to do with the quality of one's work.
I'm thinking about dropping a Twitter bomb on Andy to start tweeting on his Twitter. Every day a thousand people should send him a message on Twitter asking him to make a tweet. Then again, do that and he may well leave the thing.
|Either Andy's pissed about the Cards or trying to figure out how Twitter works|
