Props to nwilson26 from TBL board for coining the phrase.
I do not know how many readers there are of this blog quite yet….yeah we had a banner day logging more than 120 views…not bad for a four day old site…but – this is a Cubs site. And as such…not one of the EIGHT five Cubs players did anything to impact the game. This game was best summed up by a simple scouting plan for the AL.
Hit it at Dan Uggla.
So, with the 4-3 AL victory, out went the possibility of the WS home opener at Wrigley….I know, we have to get there first. I know we all were thinking the same thing. So, without going into jinx territory, Ill end it that way. You want real reacaps, I am pretty sure you arent coming here for it.
First half awards / second half predictions coming Wednesday and Thursday. Live Chat on Friday / Saturday.
Look for our next post tomorrow afternoon after this late night.

I guess 100yi could do what has already been done 100,000 times which is analyze the All Star Game as a whole but since this is a Cubs Blog Site, Ill stick to the Cubs. I don’t want to openly question most of the selections, but as a Cubs fan I continue to get pounded on being an obnoxious, dillusional idiot who blindly voted in all of the Cubs because I am a “Homer”
Much has been made of our eight “All Star” selections and questioned the validity of each players achievements and whether or not they desrve to be there. So as a responsible Cubs fan, I will try to ease some tensions for all of the other fans in the world who constantly rail Cubs fans as hopeless homers and as such – I will emphatically state the following
DESERVE TO BE THERE NO QUESTIONS ASKED
WONT PLAY ANYWAYS
PROOF THAT FAN VOTING NEEDS TO BE LOOKED AT
SHOULD BE IN AAA AFTER HIS LAST OUTING
So, in reality the Cubs have eight players at the All Star Game, but only three All Stars. Sorry for the impassionate story, but the All Star game doesn’t get us any closer to our magic number.
I will be rooting for the NL, becuase certain teams have been very dominant at home. Not naming names or being a homer…i’m just pointing out the numbers.

The Big Lead called Soto the “First bad pick by the NL fans”
How in Hell is this possible??? They go on to suggest that Russell Martin or Brian McCann would be better selections…
Offensive Comment??? To say the least –
RBI / HR / RBI / OBP / SLG / OPS
Soto .291 / 16 / 55 / .372 / .533 / .905
McCann .290 / 17 / 50 / .359 / .542 / .901
Martin .297 / 9 / 42 / .394 / .437 / .831
F% / CS%
Soto .995 / .268
McCann .995 / 237
Martin .987 / .193
How exactly did the voters get it wrong again? Soto is clearly the best catcher in the NL right now…And a Deserving All Star
