(Note: This entry was made before I heard about the death of Josh Hancock)
What a great weekend so far.
I'd never heard the term "crooked number" until I read "Three Nights in August" (buy it here - it's a great read), the Buzz Bissinger book about a 2003 Cubs/Cards series.
LaRussa uses it a number of times, as in he hates to see the other team put up crooked numbers.
A 7 run 5th inning...that's a crooked number.
Plus Carlos looks like he's waking up.
Friday had Pie's first homer, and Dempster getting the last 5 outs.
So lets see if the Cubs can sweep and finish April on a high note.
And I hope to see Mr. LaRussa doing the long walk out to the mound, maybe muttering to himself a little.
