The Best Laid Plans….

Sometimes you have to be able to roll with the punches and work with the cards you are dealt. I always have a Plan B or Plan C, if necessary….but not last night. I had one plan and that changed very quickly. The CCO crashed for the second night in a row, but this time much worse than the first. So after losing my article for today, I searched for a Plan B….What happened that I need to report? What have I missed while repairing the site?

How can I form an article after loosing all of the pieces of the puzzle that I was depending on?

I scrambled through my notes to remind myself as to what happened on Tuesday. O.K., there were no signings, they are looking at Juan Gonzalez, Prior came out on Tuesday denying the problems with his shoulder that Will Carroll reported on Monday. Prior said on WGN that he “does not feel he has to defend himself” and Dan Roan said Prior is expecting to be on the mound in the next few days. O.K., where is that info on ARam? Aramis Ramirez said on Tuesday he probably will not play in the upcoming WBC and he will make an announcement by the end of the week. O.K., where is the rest of it, that cannot be all….I kept searching and flipping through my notes and looking around to make sure that was all that I had to work with. And then I thought of Dusty….

Could this be how he as felt for the past 2 seasons? He keeps looking around and the pieces he thought he would have to work with are not there. The word injury has become a dirty word for the Cubs Faithful. So while I work on getting the CCO back up to speed, I have several questions:

1) How do you think Dusty will do this season with a healthy team?
2) Who do you think should be at second base this season?
3) How many games do you think the Cubs will win this season?
4) Are you looking forward to the Cubs Spring Training games or the WBC?

Also, congratulations to Gene Elston the 2006 Frick Award Recipient. Elston was the Cubs’ broadcaster in 1954.

The CCO will be as good as new, very soon!!!!
