Well, did you see that play Ryan Theriot made at short?
And if he doesn’t get on with two outs in the deciding 8th, Ramirez doesn’t get to knock in the winning run.
This Theriot kid is a gamer.
I like the “The Riot” nickname, too (like he’s never heard it before).
The Cubs win their fourth in a row, beating the Barry Bonds-less Giants 3-2 with young Rich Hill pitching a pretty impressive game.
They also get a new catcher.
Rob Bowen goes to the A’s for Jason Kendall.
Jim Hendry – he comes up with some good ones at the right time, and the time is right for a vet behind the plate.
Okay, so the Cubs are hotter than at any time in recent memory.
Do yourself a favor though: do NOT think too far ahead.
In ’03, I allowed myself to think about the Series in late July.
I became confused and wretched, like Jerry Jone's hair, or maybe Gollum.
But I’m all about reveling in the present, and there hasn’t been a better present than what Lou Piniella’s giving us right now.
