Baez and Bryant gone too
Fuck the Cubs man— Aldo Soto (@AldoSoto21) July 30, 2021
I was there the last time he played for the Cubs. I didn't know he'd be traded the next day, but I suspected. That's why I took these pictures from my regular seats...

For all you’ve done on the field and for all you do off it.

I turned 58 yesterday. Had a great day. Lunch with Mom (look at the shirt she is wearing) and evening Cubs game with oldest son Tommy.
This week's guest is the hilarious @rogbennett from Men in Blazers and the great new book "(Re)Born in the USA". @DavidFrankStern and Roger are brothers from another mother. Worth a listen just for their rave out against the Brian Urlacher hair billboards. https://t.co/eBS21jARID— Rick Kaempfer (@RickKaempfer) July 29, 2021

RIP Dusty Hill
The Original Carmelo
I share a birthday with only one #Cub in history, today's birthday boy Carmelo Martinez. Martinez was a Cub in 1983. It appeared he would be in Chicago for years to come. Instead, he was the centerpiece in the trade that helped the Cubs acquire SP Scott Sanderson. #everyCubever pic.twitter.com/QO2I6kxqvJ— Rick Kaempfer (@RickKaempfer) July 28, 2021

Leo the Lip
Leo the Lip, born on this day in 1905. How did people really feel about Leo Durocher? A quote from Jack Brickhouse: “In the early days Leo was an SOB, but a sharp SOB. By the time he finished in Chicago he was just an old SOB.” #everyCubever pic.twitter.com/iZT90olDdm— Rick Kaempfer (@RickKaempfer) July 27, 2021
