We were all wondering about him.
Is he the same guy, is his head messed up by the contract thing.
Then comes last night.
When the bullpen is trashed from pitching almost two complete games in a row, Carlos is the guy who gives them the night off.
Carlos shuts down the Astros and goes 8 dominating innings, giving up one little pixie run.
Carlos also clubs the winning homer through an upper wind stiff enough to keep everybody else in the park.
That’s because Carlos is The Ace of Clubs.
Cubs 2 Astros 1.
As sweet a victory as you can imagine on a perfect night at Wrigley Field.
Towards the end of the game my wife Kim says, “Hey! Where’s Lou?”
And I said well, he didn’t have to come out.
Everything went right tonight.
