Well, he did kinda resemble Franco in that shot…

What I like about JD is that he’s economical and funny. He isn’t blathering constantly and talks mostly when he actually has something worth saying. He’s not repetitive, which is really important over a 6-month season.

I’m okay with Boog because he’s curious about things and is a pleasant kind of guy on air. I wish he wouldn’t lose focus so much on the game in front of him but he would probably say that the visuals are there, so just watch.

I preferred Len to Boog—sorry that Len is gone—but still grateful that don’t have to listen to the awful Chip.

Kasper was phenomenal and he and JD had great chemistry.  I don’t think Cub fans appreciated just how good they had it with that pairing.  Boog is OK, but having to immediately follow Len in that booth doesn’t do him any favors.

Top of the 9th - Not a good way to make the final out

Assad gets into some very mild trouble (a hit and a walk) with a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the sixth and is being lifted.

It would be great to get the win for him today.

Number 71 relieves number 72, and Keegan gets the Cubs out of it with a strikeout and a pop-up to second.  Still 1-0.

Chucky Robinson hits a 2-run homer to tie the game.

Going to the eighth; Buck Farmer will pitch.  He gets two quick outs, but Contreras follows with a hit to left; his second hit of the game.  We *need* to keep him.

Suzuki keeps the inning alive, reaching on an error with a grounder up the middle that shortstop Reynolds gloved but then bobbled.

Alexis Diaz coming in.  Now would be a fine time for a run-scoring hit.

Diaz gets Happ out with a fly to center.

Keegan stays in and gets three very quick outs; on to the ninth.

Diaz works around McKinstry's steals of both second and third, ending the inning with a strikeout and pop-up.

Headed for the bottom of the ninth where the Reds could walk it off.  Hopefully we make it to extras and hopefully we are seeing the ghost runner for the very last time.

Spencer Steer's double wins it for them.  One game left in the season.

Listening to Boog forget that he is there to cover a baseball game is a lot like Bill Walton getting sidetracked from what is happening on the basketball court.

Cincy has two Farmers but only one Steer.  Not very efficient.

All hat and no cattle.

Fifteen runs for the Cubs today; save some for tomorrow!
