With the Cubs blasting out a 5-2 lead in the second inning, Jason Marquis gave up hit after hit after hit to the freaking Pirates and was removed with 2 out in the third - his worst start of the year, at least that I can remember.
And all I could think was wait til those are like, Mets or Diamondbacks or...hell, even Red Sox batters (if I'm gonna dream out loud)?
You're creamed like spinach.
Jason Marquis: get it together dude.
The Cubs need you.
Luckily you've got Aramis Ramirez as a team-mate, who drilled two 3-run homers (and almost hit another out of the park too), and picked you up.
And to be fair, the wind totally messed with you today - it was blowing straight out and heavy like it hasn't all year (I suspect The Judge was behind that, by the way, at least on Geovany Soto's homer).
Cubs 13 Pirates 8, Brewers 4 Braves 1, Cubs 1.5 games in front.
And nobody pinch Soto - keep him dream-playing like this til October's over.
