Is DJ LeMahieu just a right-handed Micah Hoffpauir?
-Caleb, Henning IL
No, because DJ has a job in the major leagues.
Fun trivia fact about LeMahieu:
His birth name is actually Doug Goldblatt. Doug had some success after college as a rave disc jockey and picked up the alias LeMahieu during an ecstasy bender in which he believed he was a French concierge. In 2006, he lost a bet with the ghost of Andy Warhol that he couldn't eat 60 croissants without vomiting, so he put down the glowstick, stopped chopping righteous mixes and picked up a bat.
Will Carlos Pena be back next season?
-Gilbert, Gottfried IL
Yes, but as an assistant to the new GM. Like Greg Maddux, he will be paid a high six-figure income to show up at the office 60 times a year, show DJ LeMahieu how to pick short hops at first base and occasionally come out of the dugout to talk to players in Spanish as he juggles a rosin bag.
When are the renovations of Wrigley Field going to start?
-David, Justice IL
Soon. Those Under Armour signs in the outfield are load-bearing lead/asbestos composite, so unless we get a fresh coat of paint on those suckers before the end of winter, the bleachers will collapse.
Ugh. 6-2 Reds in the 7th. How do I stomach this garbage?

Darwin Barney: Drab n' Rainy . . . Ew.

What did Koyie Hill do to piss off Quade?
-Koyie, Chicago IL
He don't play much, do he.
Or is it "heie" don't play much, do "heie?"
Rumor has it the Cubs skipper took it the wrong way when Hill brought his wife's minx cat to the ballpark on the way to the vet. Hence the 175 at-bats for the season.
Fun trivia fact about Hill (or is it Hillie):
Wendell Scott was to NASCAR what Jackie Robinson was to baseball. The difference was that Robinson played in liberal Brooklyn and had the backing of Branch Rickey, and Scott raced in the segregated South and had . . . nobody."Continue reading "Driven: The Story Of The First African American Inducted Into The NASCAR Hall Of Fame" »
