  6. Relief Pitcher Turned Starter Throws Gem in New York...no It Wasn't Joba

    I couldn't help but laugh today as I sat on my couch and watched Bobby Parnell make the Cubs look foolish; he threw strikes, kept the Cubs guessing and worked out of jams better than Sean Connery in The Rock...

  19. WHAT'S WITH THE BOOING
