I did this illustration last August 3rd, after Ryan Dempster gave up 4 runs in the 9th allowing the Mets to beat the Cubs 6-3.
There's certainly something to be learned from being a closer, although if you're learning correctly you won't remember later.
In fact, it would be better for everyone if we just forget yesterday.
Bad game for sure, and it won't be the last, but it's so not the end of the world...
Do you realize that a year ago Friday, the Cubs were 38-39?
At this time last year, we were all still saying "Yeah but it's early", only for the opposite reason we're saying it today?
So Swisher hit a grand slam and ruined a perfectly beautiful Friday afternoon - we'll all have another.
The Cubs are beat up, they have players learning how to play in the Bigs, shit happens.
Lets see what young Sean Gallagher can do tomorrow.
Hopefully it'll be something we all want to remember.
