I couldn’t stay up.
But I guess after getting the message from Chief Lou, Mike Fontenot dang near hit one into McCovey Cove to give the Cubs the lead for good over the Giants.
I remember Alfonso saying of Fontenot, “He has crazy power.”
He does, and I REALLY like when he does well.
Dempster pitched a fab game, but didn’t get the win (he needs a road win bad).
I tried to follow on Cubs.com, but every morning I’ve been getting up at 5, making coffee and then dragging a child out onto the lake against their sleep wishes to try and catch the missing musky.
So when it gets to be about 10-ish pm-ish, I’m pretty done.
This illustration started off as a Dick Tracy thing, but then the hair happened like that Dylan album cover (apologies to Milton Glaser), so not really sure what that is.
But I know victory when I read it, and I read it this morning.
Cubs 6 Giants 5.
Also, I’m suddenly thinking I remember that am radio works at night here.
I think you can get stations from like, New Mexico – it’s a wonky thing with the atmosphere or something.
So, I’ll try tonight.
Speaking of which, it'll be Sean The Young Stud against this 9-1, 2.38 ERA guy "Tiny" Tim Lincecum, who I read is a real short guy but throws serious flamage (read about him here - thanks DB!)
A little momentum going into St. Louis would be nice.
The Cards beat the Mets 8-7 on a Troy Glaus 2-outs-in-the-9th homer.
So anyway, why don't you Cubs knock little Tim's ERA up into the 3's or so?
And Carlos Marmol, if you've got a case of whatever Rich Hill got, go to the freaking doctor and get some pills.
