This is one of the best days of the year. Pitchers and Catchers are reporting in Goodyear, AZ.
With the current state of the Bulls and Blackhawks baseball can't get here soon enough.
Crazy as it sounds, the Bulls have been more entertaining this year then the Blackhawks even though they been trying to intentionally tank all year. Levine is a baller, Kris Dunn as the potential to be really good and Lauri has the potential to be a true beast. That is a good way to start a rebuild especially with a couple first round draft picks in their pocket.
Edit: And there is nothing like watching pitchers and catchers report for ST with a foot of snow on the ground even though thankfully it’s start to melt.
The White Sox btw just signed a deal with WGN 720 AM. The idea of the White Sox on 720 AM just wants to make me throw up. Not that I hate the White Sox (I actually like the White Sox quite a bit as the 1993 White Sox is still one of my all-time favorite teams and to this day I am still upset the 1994 World Series got cancelled for so many reasons including the fact the 94’ White Sox vs the Expos that year would been one of the World Series matchups ever potentially) but the Chicago Cubs will always be linked to WGN in every possible. There was nothing like running off the bus in the spring or early fall to catch them on WGN with Harry and Steve or listening to them in the car on 720 AM. That and the Bozo Show was my childhood that is long forgotten.
I thought they report in Florida (sorry, it's an East Coast thing).
Why would the teams that play Spring Training in the Cactus League report in Florida?
Yeah that just seems wrong. I had a little radio I took to school with me every day so I could listen to the end of home games on the bus ride home and then when I could drive WGN was the only AM station I had a preset for.
They don't, but the ones in the Grapefruit League do report in Florida for Pitchers and Catchers.
WGN turns heel on the Cubbies!
My cousin took me and my dad to this place back in the year 2000 it was a diner in a rough California neighborhood in Hayward California near Oakland. Apparently Jason Giambi had a burger here and after signed a photo for them to hang on the wall, the inscription read the best burger I ever ate! My dad, cousin and me all had one pound cheeseburgers, Milk Shakes, and we shared onion rings and french fries! we were suposed to go for a green pancake breakfast at the Firehouse in town the next day for St. Patrick's Day but we ate so much at the diner we felt so sick we felt like we had hangovers. so we did not do green pancakes.
I remember staying up late for this. Lost my voice for at least a week.
Concerning walk-off grand slams...
So goddamned glorious, man.
There really can't be many things more exciting in sports than a walk-off Grand Slam.
Apparently all we needed for the offseason to get going was for the offseason to end. Twins acquired Jake Odorizzi and the Padres signed Eric Hosmer. Not sure what the Padres are going to do with eight years of Hosmer, but there's no way that contract ends well for them.
