And continuing.........some Cub players may be upping their attractiveness as a fit for other "needy" clubs. The trade sessions ahead could get interesting --- that is, IF the Cubs are seller as anticipated.

Wood is really getting away with a lot of elevated pitches here today. I hope he can keep it up for just a few more batters...
Wood is at 88 pitches. He's not a 100 pitch pitcher just yet. He looks like he is getting pooped.
It's all those HRs and circling those bases.......

Ya know, I love Pat's home run call and all, but when he says "This balls got a chaaaance..." I have no doubt that he'll follow it up with, "Gone!"
Is he intentionally stringing us along? Or is he unintentionally spoiling his own home run call? Is he just trying to suspend my imagination for mere moments before experiencing the joyous release that comes from knowledge that the Cubs have just achieved success? And which holds the greater joy: the home run itself, or the suspense that comes of watching the flight of a well struck fly ball, hoping?
I don't know, is the only answer I have for any and all of those questions, but I sure love listening to Pat Hughes call a Cubs home run.

This streak will meet its acid test when the Cubs face the D-Backs. If the Cubs are in a "turn-around" a series win will confirm that for me. I love the wins they've got going, but the more they push that envelop the more worry comes with each try..........Being a Cubs fan is tough.
