Today will be the last Thursday without Major League Baseball until November and it feels great. 

To get excited about the upcoming Cubs season I highly recommend watching this video of Anthony Rizzo defending bunts. I forgot how good he was at that.

It takes some serious....guts... to stand 10 feet away from a batter when they get ready to take a pitch. All it would take is one guy to bring the bat back and smash a liner right in your face. But he's our first baseman and that is what he does.

This would be a great place to remind you that you can catch all 162 (plus playoff) games right here on 1440 WROK, Rockford's home of the Chicago Cubs.
