ZONER’S MONDAY MORSELS

4

Fantastic weekend of sports–playoffs were awesome! To the morsels…

Guess who was hurt again? “I don’t think its anything that’s alarming or major,” said Prior, who has spent the last week with the Padres. “We all didn’t want it to happen, but we knew this could happen. Unfortunately, it came at a time where I was kind of getting close to where I could get out and start getting into some games. I feel good. It’s not a situation where I’m aching and hurting day in and day out. It’s just the life kind of came out of the ball. It wasn’t coming out as clean as I’d like.”

Oh yeah–we all knew it could happen. Care to wager on how many games he plays in the bigs this year? I’ll put the over under on 3.

Those zany mascots. Check out the 2008 mascot bloopers.

ESPN looks at the top 50 busts in NFL Draft history.

Check out the on-base percentages of the Cubs’ regulars:

  • Fukudome .442
  • Soto .437
  • DeRosa .425
  • Lee .419
  • Johnson .418
  • Theriot .408
  • Ramirez .393

That’s incredible. Only the D-Backs have score more runs than the Cubbies in all of MLB.

And on the other side of town? The White Sox have allowed the least amount of runs in the American League. Both teams are in first place today. And the sun is shining. Enjoy them both while you can…

    Well, when you play the Pirates and Reds for 9 of your 17 games, one would hope that your offensive numbers would be pretty good. But I’ve said all along that the Cubs have one of the best lineups in the NL and they’ll go as far as their pitching takes them this year.

    And the Pirates are just a pathetic baseball team/organization. How anyone had them picked to finish anywhere but dead last this pre-season is truly amazing.

    You’re kinda like that character from SNL– “Debbie Downer”

    The Pirates are indeed so bad, I actually started feeling sorry for them. But still, it was like a dream to see this headline today: “Cubs Lead National League in On-Base Percentage.”

    More like “Rex Reality”. 17 games does not a season make. :)

    Oh, and I did say the Cubs offense was one of the best in the NL!!

    When are we golfing?
