Is This The Year That The Cubs Win It All?
Some people point to a movie made in the late 80’s as a reason that the Cubs will win the World Series this year. In Back to the Future 2 the movie predicts that the Cubs will beat Miami to win the World Series. At the time there was no team in Miami, and it would be many years before a team that played there would go by Miami. I don’t think the Cubs will win the World Series because of a movie. I think that they have a very good chance because of the players on the field. They are the future. This is an amazing group of young players. At about the mid point of the season I started telling people that if the Cubs make the playoffs they could be very dangerous. Here they are in the playoffs looking like a very strong team. This young group of players is just getting going. As a White Sox fan that is a very hard thing to think about. This could be a long stretch of baseball.
2015 MiLBY’s Photo of the Year
This year I covered only four games for the Indianapolis Indians, but I was blessed with some great action to photograph. My image of Josh Bell getting an ice bath after a 13th inning walk off hit in his first triple A game was nominated for the photo of the year by Minor League Baseball. I don’t ask for a lot, but if you could vote for it here that would be great. I am up against some great photos so I will need all the votes that I can get.
