Goatriders of the Apocalypse

The Goat Rider Army is strong

I said it in the comments, but I also want to say it in a post that more people are likely to read - I am tremendously appreciative of our readers.  This blog would be nothing without the debates, disagreements, and even the occasional insults offered up by you good folks.

I want to remind all of you that if you are a registered user, you can post your own blog when you log in under "Create content."  Also, don't forget, we have a choice of 3 skins available to you by clicking on "My account" and we may be adding a 4th soon.  I only mention these two things because newly registered readers might not be aware of either.

Thanks again, you are all awesome, and I hope you stick around for the long haul.  Oh, and if you have a Cub fan friend, tell him/her about us.  We welcome everybody.

The resident idiot

Phil Rodgers is saying the Cubs are in negotiations with the Royals on the possible trade of Fontenot & Marshall for Teahan. This is about as assine a move as possible for Hendry to make, if the rumor is true. If Fontenot had a full season of AB's, it wouldn't be out of the question if he out slugged Teahan, and trading Marshall on top of it is just insane. Teahan is a marginal player at best.
