2019 #BNBlogathon Check-In: Hour 29

Chicago Cubs

I am currently blogging – here, on Facebook, and on Twitter (hash tag #BNBlogathon for those who want to jump into the fray themselves) – for 40 hours straight, past MLB’s July 31 Trade Deadline and through the Cubs/Cardinals game Wednesday night, thanks to your generous donations to Make-A-Wish. I’ll be doing recaps on the process throughout the day, but you’ll also see normal posting (Bullets, news, Pre-Gamin’, EBS, etc.), as well as a significant uptick in rumor/trade posts.

Total Posts So Far:


News and Rumors Since the Last Check-In:

Brewers swapped Aguilar and Faria. Cubs want Whit but Whit ain’t comin’. Yu is (are) awesome. The Cubs’ bats are not.

Current Beverage/Stimulant of Choice:

Water for now. Need a palate cleanse.

Where I’m Writing:

How I Feel:

Dragging. First time so far that I’m feeling it. Stomach not great. Fog is heavy. And kinda do feel like laying down a bit.

Strangest Thought Passing Through My Mind:

But I can still make very stupid tweets:
