Most Cubs Play of All Time

By: T.R. Slyder,, @AndyDisco on Twitter, get ready to mention this every time you bash the Cubs for the rest of your life.

In the bottom of the 6th today, Mike Fontenot singled with one out. The Cubs are down 5-3 and the ball is jumping out the stadium. Bob Brenley even said that he has never seen the ball jump out of here during batting practice like it did today.

Geovany Soto gets to the plate. The count goes full, so Fontenot will be running on the pitch. Soto strikes out swinging and has a really ugly swing, he tries to duck his head to avoid Red's pitcher Corky Miller's follow through from his throw down to second. Miller hits his head anyway, resulting in a call of Fontenot automatically being out at second due to batter interference. Double play. Inning over.

To add injury to insult, Soto was lying down after the play and being attended to by Cubs trainers. He would stay in the game however (thank GOD!).

That sums up our season pretty well so far.

That's how I roll.

The Best Failed Drug Test for a Player I Like

By: T.R. Slyder,

I read this headline today on Tribune's website: "Cubs Soto Failed Drug Test During WBC",
Prompting me to recall this article where Cub-hating nepotist nutsack Thom Brennaman alleged that Geovany Soto's success was the result of steroids.

So when I read the headline the first thing I thought of was, "Oh God no. T-hom was right. F MyLife." So I click the link to see that Soto failed a MARIJUANA test. Thank God, Jesus, Baby Jesus, Allah, and Jim Caveziel. That made my day. I couldn't care less if a millionaire gets high in the offseason.

T-hom Brennaman still sucks.
