Wine and Baseball

I really don't know what the fuck that thing is in the picture, but it looks as though the Tin Man boinked a wine bottle and I decided to post the end result. However, I write to you tonight in sheer bliss.

I get home, and after mowing the lawn, take a nice warm shower, hit the kitchen for some sweet meatloaf and broccoli, watch yet more episodes of "Entourage," then saddle up with a Barefoot Chardonnay (I'm a beer guy, but for some reason I craved a little white wine for the evening) for the Cubs and Cardinals on the four-letter network, deuce edition.

So, there I sit...sipping on vino and watching the Cubs rally in their half of the fifth inning to the tune of a 6-1 lead over the Satanic Fowl. Genius LaRussa's only answer is to sit in the corner of the dugout with those sweet Blueblockers on and scratch his left asscheek trying to trigger thoughts from the right side of his brain. Anywho, the night couldn't be better...the Cubs are leading the Cards 6-1 in the 6th and there's a great lightning show going on outside to cap it all off. Here's to the Cubs putting the finishing touches on the Cards tonight.

By the way, baseball's equivalent of the largest cocktease on the planet has been lights out in Single A ball, and with some luck and a few "Hail Mary's," the K-Kid could be up as early as next week. For one thing, I think he all but deserves it. It's been nothing but a crap shoot being Kerry Wood in a Cubs uniform, and though it's the only uniform he's ever known as a Major Leaguer, I hope he finally finds a healthy groove and can get back to this team and guide the bullpen to the postseason....and, maybe...just maybe...some October festivities. Football, be prepared to take a backseat if the Cubs make the Series. It could be one of the signs of the Apocolypse. It'd be a good trade.

I almost picked up Wood based on the progress he's making, but I'm positive he's below everyone's radar at this point. Is he going to close or setup?

Also just looking at the form on that bottle I understand the Tin Man's desires...

Well, they're saying that he could pitch for a week or so in AAA, then be called up if healthy. He's been pitching lights out without pain and hopefully he'll be able to throw trash innings initially, then set-up in late August and into the playoff push.

PS, you should pick up Carlos Marmol.

You'll be glad to know that I picked up not only your boy Marmol, but also THEriot. Got him today for Lenny Dinardo from the A's so I can't complain. I hate to say it, but I hope it's Braves/Cubs in the NLCS. Let's go RIOT!

I hope it's Braves/Cubs, too, 'cause all that means is that the Braves won't make it to the World Series. It's science. 60% of the time, it works everytime.
