Comments on the Upcoming Season

When my wife gave birth on March 13 of this year to two beautiful twin boys, it became obvious to me that this would be the year of the Twins! That’s right, without Francisco Liriano and Brad Radke, Minnesota led by Johan Santana (recording his second consecutive pitching triple crown) and believe it or not Sir Sidney Ponson, along with Joe Mauer and ’06 MVP Justin Morneau, will return to the top of baseball world in 2007. Of course, they’ll have to go through the Yankees and Red Sox in October to get there and they’ll have to knock off the resurgent Dodgers in the end to reach the ultimate goal. But make no mistake, 2007 is the Year of the Twins!

Without a doubt, 2007 has another wonderful baseball season in store for us and among the things I think you can expect to see this year are: another MVP season from Alex Rodriguez (only to see his Yankees once again fall short in October), a fantastic comeback campaign from Sammy Sosa (though it won’t help the Rangers pitching staff), a monster year from Carlos Lee (as Albert Pujols somehow ends up with the short end of the stick again), wily veteran left-hander Tom Glavine reaching the magic number 300 (and watching as his former team ascends back to the top of the NL East), and of course, Barry Bonds surpassing Hank Aaron as the all-time home run champion (with Pud Selig conspicuously but not surprisingly absent). Now if only we could see my beloved Giants finally reach the pinnacle themselves. Oh well, maybe next year.

Ron Santo: Cubs Legend

Pat Hughes and Ron Santo were the Chicago Cubs' WGN Radio announcing team for 15 seasons. Their unique on-air chemistry became known as "the Pat and Ron Show" with fans tuning in as much for their eccentric banter as for Cubs baseball itself.
