Baseball Season has begun!

Ok so the first game didn’t go the way I would’ve liked, but I knew it wouldn’t go our way as soon as I spilled my coffee all over the parking lot at work this morning. On the up side, I love that we got an extra inning game and that Smaardzija held the Pirates for 7 innings like the boss that he is. He was a great pick for opening day, and I think will continue to be a great pitcher for the Cubs for at least a few more seasons, plus he has fabulous hair. Bro must condition regularly.

I’m not sure how I feel about this whole new expanded instant replay and the ability of the managers to challenge the way they do in football, but I do like that Skipper Renteria was the first to use it, I feel like he’s setting a precedent day one that “guess what, you instituted this new rule and the Cubs are going to use it damn it.” I could be wrong but at least the Cubs go down in the record books as the first to use the challenge, though Cardinals fans will likely just say we were the first to whine about a call we didn’t like this year. At any rate it was a very close call and I tend to agree with the umps, and I doubt it would’ve made a difference in the game anyhow.

No game tomorrow, the Cubs stay at PNC Park for Wednesday and Thursday and then head back to the North side for the Home Opener, which I’ll be attending! Get pumped folks, we’ve got a whole lot of baseball to come!
