We could talk about all the aspects of this for days.
The saddest part is, had the Cubs won, they just would have been the good guys.
I’m getting all kinds of phone calls, but here’s what Sutter emailed me:
"I am embarrassed to be a Cubs fan after tonight. That was truly a gutless performance. Piniella can stage a fake argument last Saturday when the ump makes the right call and tonight he does nothing when they throw out Lilly when the ump says I know what he was thinking? Give me Lee Elia for a much smaller salary. And then we do nothing when Renteria elbows our guy in the face? We deserve to finish behind the Brewers. Prince Fielder would have killed Renteria on the spot. And now we'll use the bullpen being tired as the excuse when we lose the next seven in a row at home."
That about sum it up?
I’m pretty used to pitchers throwing at guys, and retaliation and all that.
Just the price of priesthood.
But this Renteria play, I REALLY wish somebody woulda done something.
Cause that one’s gonna fester.
Who knows, maybe the Cubs rebound and get a rematch with the Braves in the playoffs.
(And maybe Paris Hilton really does have a medical condition...)
Anyway, I’m going tonight.
I detest the Astros.
