This blog doesn’t appear on the homepage anymore or at least not where it use to be.
Wonder why? Too much work Jen?
WOW,7 in a row.Lyons turn tonight.1st inning took 42 mins. and would have been longer if there were pitching changes.Even the Cubs held back from making a change.The bench has really improved thus far.Last year we had zero power from the bench.

It was an MLB.com decision to remove the links from all team homepages. As I wrote before the season, the content that was on the blog is now on the site as a story. I’ll continue to post daily lineups on the blog but that is all.

Sorry about the snide remark,and thank you.Believe it or not I can be an idiot at times.
No really!!…. don’t laugh.
