You know how beautiful it was all day yesterday?
Everybody went outside for lunch...talking about sun and summer and fun?
I never left my office - too busy.
When I finally did about 6:30, I put the top down, and just as I got on that ramp to get on the Kennedy, traffic began to crawl, and it began to rain.
If I got out of the car to put the top up, surely traffic would go and I'd get the honk treatment...
So I hid my computer under my jacket and sat there.
And right then I knew something bad was gonna happen, but I thought something more personal like a zit or a breaking a plate.
WHAT I DIDN'T THINK WAS THAT ARAMIS RAMIREZ AND CARLOS MARMOL WOULD BOTH LEAVE A FREAKING CARDINAL GAME WITH INJURIES!
I've been trying to ignore the injuries.
Geo's shoulder and Milton's groin and Gregg's knee and Hoffpauir's pride...
But now I can't.
The Baseball Gods are here, and they're gonna try to wreck my fun.
I know Marmol says he' won't miss any time, but PITCHERS ARE TOUCHY.
You mess with one part of them, then another part has to do a little more and suddenly his motion is changed and then something really bad happens.
Aramis Ramirez has one of the most violent swings in the game.
Try doing that with half a calf.
I don't chew my fingernails, but I thought about maybe taking it up last night.
Ryan Dempster was okay, Fontenot got a clutch hit.
Lou tinkered with the lineup, moved Soriano to 3 and Lee to 5 and Theriot to lead-off, and today he's gonna have to tinker all over again.
The Cubs only have 16 chances against the Cards, and now they''ve won 2 and lost 2 after losing last night 3-4 in St. Louis.
Lets see what the Baseball Gods bring us at 3:10 today.
Sean Marshall against Mitchell Boggs.
