    Woo hoo!!!!!

    Despite giving up 2 runs on 6 hits against minor league players, Johan Santana emerged from his 56-pitch effort “pleased” with the results.  Santana had this to say:  “Game situations.  You want as many different game situations as possible to be ready.  You want to face all kinds of hitters in all kinds of situations.  I did that today.  It’s good when you have baserunners.”

    Really?  What are we talking about here?  Santana is glad that he allowed 6 minor league players to reach base in 4 innings of work so that he could pitch from the stretch more often?  This is unbelievable.

    Now I know that he threw 40 of 56 pitches for strikes; and I know that he had 5 strikeouts.  But at this stage of the spring, I want to read about Santana retiring 14 of 15 minor league batters faced in a 5 inning effort.  This leaves a lot to be desired for me and let’s hope the Mets get their act together before the season starts.  The best thing that they have going for them is that Cole Hamels could miss some regular season action because of left elbow issues.  Hip Hip Hooray…

    We spend most of our days looking at many different web sites for pro sports teams. The one thing I have noticed over the last few months is just how sad the Chicago Cubs web site is. The news or breaking news they post is just pathetic, with things like “Bradley out with flu; Miles nears return” and “Piniella knows there’s work to be done”. After seeing months of this I just have to say, what the hell? I guess this could be a preview of what is to come this season. A team that has been swept the last 2 years in the post season and has not been in a World Series in over 100 years, has nothing to talk about? I guess this also could be because they did nothing in the office season, expect for getting Milton Bradley that is.  This is a team that has record breaking ticket sales each and every year and what have they done. I guess there is only one person you can blame for this, the fans. Hey Cubs fans stop spending money and making the team rich and they will get you a winning team. I’m sure I will have a lot of Cubs fans upset for this, but what else is new they are always pissed about something. If you are looking for a funny read check out the Cubs home page.
