Three and half games back at the break. Could be a lot worse considering how often we’ve had our starting lineup in there. Regardless…it’s really not that bad of a place to be at the break so regarding what to focus on, how about: congratulations again Ted Lilly for being selected to represent the Chicago Cubs in the All-Star game tomorrow night. As usual nowadays, home field advantage in the Series is on the line and really, the American league has won far too many of these games lately. Let’s go National League, let’s get that W tomorrow night!
Watching the derby now, they’re up to Pena first round. I decided I’m taking Mauer before this thing started and I’m sticking to it. We’ll see! St. Louis is a great park for this event…division rivals or not, I’m looking forward to seeing what kind of damage Pujols does in front of his home crowd.
In celebration of the All-Star break, I finally got my parade photos from last year when the Cubs had eight all-stars on the roster! Here are the photos I was able to rip from my phone. They are phone pics mind you, so that should explain the quality. Enjoy the pics, enjoy the derby and let’s hopefully enjoy watching Lilly get the W in a National League win tomorrow night!

Go Cubs Go! Let’s get that home field advantage, National League!
