I know he hasn't been the most popular Cub this year, but it was sure cool to see Jason Marquis connect with the bases loaded last night.
Theriot 3 for 3, DeRo 3 for 4, Speedy Reedy 2 for 2 with a couple RBI's, and D Lee with a did ya miss me homer - maybe he's about to get that power kind of hot.
But it's gonna be Jason Marquis the cabbies in NY will be cussing about tomorrow.
5 RBIs for the Chicago pitcher, his 12th win.
They're saying he's gonna make that playoff roster for sure now, so good for him.
And the Cubs will now have home field advantage throughout the NL playoffs with their 95th win, so a very nice win at Shea.
The only thing giving me gas right now is the potentially distracting Alfonso thing on Deadspin (not linking to it), and Soto's hand.
PLEASE don't let Soto's hand be hurt hurt.
Okay, REALLY busy so... gotta run.
Oh wait, the whole reason I did the drawing...
This was the car I learned to drive in - The Grand Marquis.
About 30 feet long and 20 feet wide, and a giant engine.
First time I took it out by myself was the day after my dad had it re-painted.
Tried to park in a space made for a VW, and since I'd never heard the sound of metal scraping on metal before, I just kept going.
A guy walking by said, and I'm not kidding, "Hey IDIOT! I hope that's not your dad's car."
