Yo ho ho! Joe Table K's Corey Patterson with two on for the save.

And Corey strikes out to end the game. Pirates win 4 to 3.

That was beautiful. Watching the chubbies lose to a bad team and listening to their fans boo before they all left early. And now it's only 2 hours until it's time to cinch it up and hunker down. Halfway to a perfect day!

Ha, I was at Sears and they had the game on, it was awesome, everyone got all mad, and I just simply yelled, "blown save" with a smirk on my face, and then went on to look at the digital cameras

Seriously, I said it at the time, real stupid for Hendry to worry more about getting rid of Sosa than addressing a huge team need, and then not even get Julio or someone resembling a closer in the deal, but the media let's him slide for it

I saw this thread on my computer and so I went downstairs just in time to see Corey strike out on three pitches! Thanks to Pat and WSI for giving me the heads-up regarding the trainwreck going on at 1060 W. Addison!

If you were watching it on MLB.TV you wouldn't know the Pirates won since their announcers don't seem to have any emotion for their team.

Boy, who's Dusty gonna blame this year? No Bartman, no Sammy, he'll find a new scapegoat.

Announcing for the walking dead is hardly an inspiring experience. Hell, every time they win a game, that just means there's more losses coming later in the year because they know that L column is gonna have at least 90 in it.

Seriously, after a couple years with Extra Innings, I've come to the conlcusion that they're the worse in the league

It was extra-sweet in person (hey, I rarely turn down offers of free tickets from my college roommate). LaToya is comic GOLD! I even won the vintage-Billy Williams jersey promotion, although it only seemed appropriate to offer it to my roommate :smile: Now, time for a real game...

Had I paid for my own ticket, I would have sold the jersey - $250 retail, so it would probably amount to a few nice dinners. However, the ticket was free - I would have to be insane to pay to see any Cubs game not involving the Sox :cool:

It was a pretty good turnout, actually, considering the weather; 37,695 were announced, and the bleachers were full and there were at least 20,000 in the house, maybe as many as 25,000... - Cubbie blogger

So, let's be clear. The Cubbies sold 37K tickets but no where near 37K showed up.

Well gang, we're numero uno in all of MLB, the Flubs can't get above .500 this season. I'm gonna ignore them this year (except for the crosstown serieses) becasue the Sox are too damn exciting to spend any energy on the sorry losers up north!:D: I just have one parting shot for all those people who stood in line and bought all those those Flub tickets: LOSERS!

And if we "sold 37K tickets but no where near 37K showed up," the mediots would be all over it.

The best part was Santo on the radio during the recap trying to explain it all. (Arrrr urrrh weehhhhh awwwwwww) How can this guy be kept out of the Broadcasting Hall of Fame?

Hey, wasn't that one of the things that Cub fans used to throw in our faces not too long ago? Looks like they've also adopted the practice of announcing the crowds based on tickets sold (as opposed to actual in-house totals).

Just wait until Ron Santo leaves earthly life for live eternal. Cub fans will want him cannonized instantly!

Pat,
Maybe I missed it (I listen to your dad as often as I can, though not every day), but it sounds like there's a story there. Do tell...

You have to understand: That's exciting baseball. On the other hand, from what I read, watching the Sox win is supposed to be boring.
