CODY RANSOM NEWS

If orange is the new black, does that make Dean Anna the new Cody Ransom?

One of the most creative aspects of the annual Academy Awards debacle is the use of well-dressed nobodies to occupy the seats of presenters and winners, so the house always looks full to the cud-chewing TV audience.This practice is also employed each spring by Yankee GM Brian Cashman, when welcoming his employees to Tampa. Now and then, Cash hires homeless people to hold various...

Saturday Cubs thoughts

Today I hung out with the family at IKEA (yay cheap furniture!) so I missed most of the Cubs game, in which they pretty much sucked and couldn’t score runs (again).  There was a moment on the way home when I tuned in to the radio and while I thought Starlin Castro was up after Donnie Murphy, it was instead Cody Ransom.  I thought I had missed something and was hoping Castro wasn’t...

Jaff Decker’s First Homer

Number one. Padres history is littered with players who wore it on their back. Most couldn’t hit much. The last, Cody Ransom, went 0-for-11 before being released in mid-April. Ozzie Smith is in the Hall of Fame, although he never hit for the Padres. He and Enzo Hernández each had 83 sacrifice hits, most in franchise history, but those aren’t real hits. Calvin Schiraldi knocked...

The Mets Continue To Do Mets Things

The Mets are an absolute mess. Last night, they lost to the Cubs 6-3 in an uninspired effort. One would figure today the Mets would come out with a little more gusto against the Cubs to save face. During the top half of the first inning it became evident this wasn’t going to be the case. With one out Cubs’ third baseman Cody Ransom hit a routine single to center field. Of course...

Where Is Our Breaking Point as Cubs Fans?

I went to the game last night to see the big Cingrani vs. Garza matchup that, while not exactly the pitching porn of a Verlander vs. Darvish or Wainwright vs. Kershaw matchup, I had hoped it would be at least a Cinemax softcore pitching porn display.  Unfortunately, it ended up being more of a pitching snuff film from the Cubs side as Garza got bound, whipped, and violated repeatedly...

Justin Wilson still maintains a strong 2.87 FIP on the season.

Game 53: Cubs 4 Pirates 1

Well, that was strange. Jeff Locke seemed to get off to a really good start, but completely unraveled as the afternoon went on and he stopped being able to find the strike zone. He gave up a run before he gave up a hit and walked seven hitters. Justin Wilson bailed him out of trouble in the sixth, but served up a three-run home run to Cody Ransom in the seventh (just the second he...

Back to Their Losing Ways; Angels fall to the Cubs, 8-6

  Despite a Herculean 2-home-run effort by Mark Trumbo, the Angels continued to baffle with their losing ways. At this point, we can talk about the fact that Jason Vargas essentially made one mistake (a 3-run home run to Cody Ransom), or we can talk about Erick Aybar swinging at a 2-0 pitch and popping out to strand JB Shuck with an out in the seventh. Or, we can talk about...

ANAHEIM, Calif. The homestand had so much promise and potential, but at the end of it, the Angels still look like a team searching for the right direction.
