Big News for Cub fans! The Cubs have gone from last to second place in the NL central. Plus Ron Santo has returned to the booth after his annual health scare. Ron is one of my all time favorite Cubs. Santo has had type I Diabetes for over 50 years, and was the first pro athletic to play with the illness. Ronnie has shown that you can accomplish anything you need regardless of diabetes. I have been a type II diabetic for several years, and I have always marveled at what Santo did back in the 60s and 70s. Considering how far we have come in treating diabetes, it is amazing that this guy was able to play at an all-star level back in those days. Santo also belongs in the baseball hall of fame, but for whatever reason some old time ballplayers think that six gold gloves, many all-star appearances, and probably the best all-around 3rd baseman in the 1960s is not good enough to vote him in the hall. Anyway, Ronnie is feeling better and back in the booth, and the Cubbies are winning, and when you think about it that's all that counts:-)
