    The leaguewide motto when playing the Cubs should be:

    Just put the ball in play and enjoy the circus.

    My word, they really suck.

    Volquez's motto when playing anyone is:

    Strike everyone out or give up some home runs

    Woah, come on now. He walks people too!

    Volquez is the pitching counterpart of Adam Dunn. Three true outcomes...

    Volquez cut his hair. I'm predicting a DOMINATING performance.

    A team doesn't even have to put the ball in play for the circus to start. Starting a conversation with a Cub should be enough...starting a conversation involving two or more Cubs is the potential for a firestorm.

    Wonder how many hat sizes Volquez had to go down once he cut his hair off?

    I thought both were strikes but the first one had a ton of late break and dropped into the zone right at the end. Thought it was a strike but wasn't surprised at all to see it called a ball.
