RBI double in the 14th to give the Pads a lead, Jacque Jones misplays it and lets it get past him into the corner.

Good news, bad news. I'm happy for Geoff, especially if the Padres hang on and win. Bad news, someone in the Chicago media might write a story about him now. I was planning a column for this week about him. With him delivering this big hit, somebody from the Chicago papers might steal my thunder. :(:

And now they have more ammo to blame Jones with every single problem they have.

You mean the game just ended? Then how come there was a big crowd of Kubbie Klown Blue-clad idiots blocking the exit from my evening train when everyone was trying to get off, at 5:30? Are you trying to tell me the World's Best Fans left the game early?

It looked like Tropicana by the 14th, only colder. Remember, they stop selling beer in the 8th, so that's 6 innings of baseball with nothing to do and no reason to stay at the park.

Yeah I was unaware Wrigley was even open to the public after the 8th inning.

So, our beloved utility outfielder from the '05 season came through today by hitting a game-winning double in the 14th inning allowing the Padres to beat the Cubbies.

It was evident how bogus their announced attendance is when they had a booth view during the 7th inning stretch and so many complete rows were empty. This was when it was about 70 out.

There will always be a special place in my heart for ol' Geoff.

Chips and I got on the Red at Monroe around 5:00 yesterday. I believe the game was in the 11th at that time but that didn't mean there wasn't a steady stream of Cub fans exiting the station.

I was actually listening to the game in the car on the way home from work last night, and when Blum came up, I thought. "He's good at ending long games."

And then he doubled in the winning run.

I forgot how mumbly Santo is in the booth:

"Oh, man, they're not...no...they're gonna...(something muffled)...no..."

Santo's pained moments are so great to listen to. No explanation of the game, just grunts, groans and an occasional Nooo!

Simply put, Geoff Blum rocks.

Here's to you, Mr. Crazy Hair. :bandance:

As the pitch to Blum was approaching home plate, Santo was talking about what a great momentum-booster it would be for the Cubs if they won that game...:D:

Dude they stopped serving beer in the 7th. Of course they left early.

So, wait, if that foul ball had been fair, it might have been a hit? Thanks for the insight, Ron!
