A Beautiful Day in the Desert

Cheers all around after Luis Valbuens hits a Homer

Cheers all around after Luis Valbuens hits a Homer

Ok, ok; Don’t get too excited, it’s only spring training. The Cubs just walloped the future World Series Champions Los Angeles Angels 11-2. Luis Valbuena hit his second Homer in two days-Holy Cow!!!

I knew there was a catch somewhere. The Angels weren’t playing, Mike Trout, Josh Hamilton, Albert Pujols. It’s still an encouraging win and a true sign that baseball is back and the groundhog was wrong-there’s only two weeks left of winter.

It’s kind of like David vs Goliath here, but if there is any reason for being optimistic is the fact that the Cubs rising stars shone through and showed Cubs fans everywhere that there are good things coming in the years ahead.

Jorge Solar showed signs of the great player he will be. He got a hit,run and an RBI. Heck, Brett Jackson had a pair of triples.

Today, the Cubs play the Giants at 3:05

Nobody cares about what happens before April but today the Chicago Cubs are number 1.

    Yeah, it’s hard to judge ST games. So often one team has mostly minor leaguers and the other is playing more or less their regular line up, so I don’t think wins and losses mean much. But good performances are still good performances and indicative of good things to come in the regular season — and your Cubs sure looked good, especially at the plate.

      Oh yeah you’re right, and the Angels haven’t even begun with their powerhouse. I’m really excited for the Angels. The Cubs aren’t going to be that awful.
