This is a blog, where I share my thoughts on the world of sports. I grew up near Chicago, so most of my topics will mainly focus on Chicago based sports teams.

Today's Cub game, The Cubs lead 5-1 in Bottom of the ninth at Shea Stadium. Angel Guzman gave up one run in 5innings and then Will Ohman(SUCKS) struck out 5 guys in a row. The next man out of the bullpen was Wuertz, who last night walked in the winning run. Wuertz along with Ohman put up three scoreless frames. Lou turns the game over to Ryan Dempster, who has been pretty good this year. He proceeded to BLOW the game wide open, walking two batters and giving up 4 runs. Scott Erye came in to give up the game winning hit. The bullpen blew another game for a Cubs starter who kept the Cubs in the game. Lou is going to have a heart attack before the ALL-STAR break. The Cubs might need to just demote people to IOWA and bring those guys up to pitch in the majors. The IOWA Cubs relief pitchers can't be any worse.

With the Redline-series coming up, the Cubs bullpen in shambles could be just watch the swing doctor ordered for the offensively struggling White Soxs.


No history here

The Bulls were eliminated from the NBA playoffs, thus ending there quest to become the first team to overcome a 3-0 deficit in basketball. They were in the entire game, playing hard and hounding the Pistons. They did not have the jumper working tonight. The Bulls are left with some lingering questions. The most important of these questions is how to get to a post scorer. That is the major flaw in this Bulls Team, P.J. Brown had a great game tonight but is 38 and not the answer. Ben Wallace needs someone to compliment him in the front court and the Bulls will not make to conference finals by solely relying on the jump shot. That is why they lost the game tonight, because Kirk and Ben were cold from the outside, which is why a post scorer is needed.

The post player market will be slim. The most prominet name "out there" is Kevin Garnett. Kevin Garnett is not a free agent and is under contract. I am not holding my breath on him. If the Bulls want to win NOW, they only have one choice; make a trade. The Bulls will have to trade one of there core young players and their number 1 pick. That is the missing piece for the Bulls to take the next step in their maturation process. The Bulls will have to make choice on Ben Gordon, Noch, and Deng very soon. One of those names will have to be used in a deal to get KG or lesser Paul Gasol.

If Bulls cannot trade for a low post scorer, they will look to the deep draft at players like Roy Hibbert, and Joakim Noah. That raises another question can Hibbert, and Noah help the Bulls reach the conference finals. I FEEL that with Noah or Hibbert they will be better team, but they need a established scorer if they wish to make the conference finals next season.

I'm BACK!! School is now over, so I have time now to Blog. Coaching is over for this year and it was a great experience! I was proud of some of the guys who ran well this past weekend at conference, namely Dingo and Damon. The other distance runners who performed well I excepted their performances. I will also say the times were slower distance wise. The winning times and scoring times were the weakest, I have seen in my tenure with the MC track team.

Speaking of Returns, the Rocket's return to baseball is in my opinion STUPID!! I DON'T care about the Rocket, I HOPE HE GETS SHELLED every time out. The Yankees spent money on a 46 year old pitcher, who pitched in the NL central the last two years. I hope his ERA 6.00 or higher! All this BS about him getting special privileges is wrong, stop bringing this guy back! This guy is not above the team not even the Yankees.

On to Chicago baseball, Both teams are .500 or close to it. They both have major problems that were strengths last season. First the White Sox, the power hitters, Konerko, Dye, and Thome are not hitting. Konerko is in a slump and in 2003, he hit like this all year, so it should be a concern. Dye is thinking about all the money the ANGELS are going to pay him next year-He is going to protect Vlad next season. I guarantee Dye will be signed by them this off season. Thome has been on DL which is hurting production.

The Cubs are a different story their strength last season was their bullpen. This year they are horrible, everyone is SCREAMING for changes, yet nobody knows why the bullpen is so bad. I of course have the reason why the bullpen sucks. Last season, they were overworked, the Cubs starters were awful last year and Dusty Baker uses his bullpen more than anyone in baseball year. Could that have some affect? By the way Will Ohman needs to be RELEASED every time he comes into a game, he gives up RUNS! The Cubs need to get rid of this guy whether it is: demote, release, or shoot him!

Lastly Football,

The Bears draft was okay in my mind. I wanted a wide receiver from USC and I thought Garrett Wolfe was a reach. I saw they signed Darius Walker from ND but I can't find it any where. I might be seeing things.

More to come in the near future
