Time to begin my countdown!! 12 days until the Bears season kicks off!! And I’m incredibly pumped. I’ll be writing a preseason wrap up soon.
As you can tell.. I can’t take any more of the Cubs this year. So. damn. hard. Keeping my fingers crossed for next year.
That ball was CRANKED! What a blast.
I REALLY like this kid.
Let’s see if the Cubbies can pull off this win!
Rusin has been looking sharp today as well.
And Junior follows it with ANOTHER bunt single! I think we found our lead-off man of the future ladies and gents!
Junior Lake with a bunting single… by sliding headfirst into the bag.
I knew I liked this guy
And another one bites the dust
There goes Garza. Off to the Nationals. Best of luck to him.
We can only hope that it will pay off in a couple years. If the player to be announced later pool includes Ramirez, as some rumors have said, I would be very happy indeed with the trade. Hopefully the new Cubs will live up to their potential.
Man am I going to miss that scruffy beard
On to Arizona, and daaa Bears
But… we started off the second half of the season so well!! What happened! The Cubs happened. *sigh* we lost to a bunch of rocks. Seriously, what kind of mascot is that. The Rockies? “Hey! We’re mountains!”
Time for four games with Arizona then on to San Fran. I’m just hopeful we can go .500 on this road trip. But that probably won’t happen. Oh well, at least we won the Stanley Cup! LETS GO HAWKS! lol
19 days until daaaaaa Bears have their first preseason game! So at least we have something to look forward to! And while I’m on that topic. I just want to say that I have full confidence in Jay Cutler. I have defended him against anyone who has called him soft, bad, or whatever. Sure he makes bad decisions sometimes. But I think it comes out of frustration. He is a competitor, and feels the need to make plays. That’s an admirable trait in a franchise QB. Once we fix the disaster that is our offensive line, hopefully he will prove to all his haters that he has the potential to be one of the elite quarterbacks in this league.
That being said, I believe this will be his last chance. If our offensive line improves this year (which it should) and he still struggles, it would not surprise me to see management go in a different direction. Though I don’t want that to happen. Also, I’m looking for Forte to have a BIG year this year.. the improvements in the O-Line should open up bigger gaps for him and let him show off that power and speed.
Well. The all-star break has come and gone, and I’d like to think of this second half as a new season.. and we’re undefeated! Woo!! JUNIOR LAKE!! I know the expectations will be high after tonight, but I’m excited to see what he can do. And as for Garza trade speculations.. can we stop speculating please? If it happens, it’ll happen.. and we can talk about it then.
Honestly though, at this point, I’m just excited for Bears preseason. We’re getting close now!
