Run!

If you see Ernest doubled over at a bar somewhere, it's because he just got done Shamrock Shuffling. Cut him some slack.

1. Who has the most to prove this Chicago baseball season?
Sean Ely: Hot dog vendors. A lot riding on keeping Chicago's morale high after these two teams quickly snuggle into last place.
Pete McMurray: Well, let's see. Who hasn't won since before World War I?
Ernest Wilkins: I ... don't ... ugh ... so tired.
Elliott Serrano: "Hit and Run" co-host Barry Rozner, who can't seem to hold on to a radio partner. YOU'VE GOT MY NUMBER BARRY!
Sarah Spain: Clark the Cub.
2. Who has an on-field meltdown first: Robin Ventura or Rick Renteria?
Sean Ely: Neither. Drunk girls crying in a Wrigleyville bar bathroom because "Trevor" is making things "so effen hard right now" will happen first.
Pete McMurray: I had the Renteria after eating a steak burrito at 4 a.m., and it wasn't pretty!
Ernest Wilkins: Robin... because ... ooh, my leg!
Elliott Serrano: Barry Rozner, after his current co-host leaves him for yet another radio station.
Sarah Spain: Yes.
3. What's the best part about being a Chicago baseball fan?
Sean Ely: LOL ROFLCOPTER HAHAHAHA Is this question for realz?! LMAO
Pete McMurray: We have each other to commiserate. "Hey remember 2003? Ahhh. Yeah."
Ernest Wilkins: Oh sorry, I'm running the Shamrock Shuffle right now.
Elliott Serrano: We're one of the few cities with both National and American League teams, so count your blessings people!
Sarah Spain: Not being a Milwaukee baseball fan.
4. Why have the Blackhawks struggled so much lately?
Sean Ely: CTA Blue Line officials have been operating the Zamboni. Too soon?
Pete McMurray: Time change. Daylight Saving. I've been a little sluggish too.
Ernest Wilkins: Man it's nice out here! Hold on, about to cross the finish line ...
Elliott Serrano: I think they were as worried about Ernest Wilkins finishing the Shamrock Shuffle as I was. Congrats Ernest!
Sarah Spain: Not enough fiber.
5. What should RedEye's Tracy Swartz bring back from her Pittsburgh road trip?
Sean Ely: Uh, nothing. That city is abysmal in pretty much every way.
Pete McMurray: Willie Stargell's bat and halupki.
Ernest Wilkins: WHOO! Made it! Oh, a new team affiliation? EVERYONE HATES THE FLORIDA GATORS, TRACY.
Elliott Serrano: My heart. You can't run from me forever Tracy!
Sarah Spain: Couple of Primanti Bros sandwiches and a case of Iron City brews will do.
