The only thing worse for your ego than the boos? The sarcastic cheers.

I love seeing the opposing team's pitcher bat in the first inning. It makes them exert extra energy.

The new regime has seen sabermetrical evidence that proves this theory true. Over the coarse of a full season we should can expect an extra 3-4 runs a game when the opposing pitcher bats in the first inning.

I must be sicker than this team to endure the torture......and I'm not even into religious-order self-flagellation.

I don't think I've watched or listened to a game this year where the first pitch hasn't been a strike against the Cubs.
