Sweet Uncle Lou’s Friday Roundup: The “I’d Rather Be Watching Shark Week” Edition


This weekend, Dusty’s Reds are in town. Unfortunately, Shark Week is ending, so what the hell am I supposed to do other than crave sea lion? Thanks for the hints as to where on the internet interesting things might lie. I am aware that the Muskbox is finally back after a loooooong hiatus. It will be taken care of. All right. Time to ruin a perfectly productive Friday.

That’s all for me this week, peons. There aren’t many more of these Roundups left before old Sweet Lou will ride off into the sunset. So, cherish them. Or don’t. What do I care?

    It’s official. Lou does not care if he wins or not. His presence is physical only. Even if the Cubs don’t have a shot at the division, they should have some pride. A good finish is a;ways desirable. Any player who can escape this sinking ship is a lucky one.

    The Alex Cora AB against Clement lead to one of my all time Zambrano red ass moments. Z was on the mound against the Dodgers the next day, and when Cora came up against him, the crowd went nuts. I can’t remember the count, but Cora fouled off 2 or 3 pitches (each time to bigger and bigger cheers), so Z calmly drilled him in the back with his next pitch.

    April 10th, 2004.
    Cubs at Atlanta.
    Cubs enter the bottom of the 8th with a 2-1 lead.
    After walking Andruw Jones with the bases loaded to tie the game The Farns is now pitching to 80 year old Julio Franco with the bases loaded:
    Called Strike, Strike Swinging, Foul, Foul, Foul, Foul, Foul, Ball, Ball, Foul, Foul, Ball, 3 Run Double.
    Cubs lose 5-2
