Man, that's the worst thing to see - the billion mph liner right back into the pitcher.
In this case, Tom Gorzelanny's shoulder.
I was just on a plane a week ago, and everybody was watching "The Blind Side". Have you seen the beginning? When they show the Thiesmann leg-break play? It's just flat out the worst thing ever.
So, I see the ball scream back into Gorzy, I gotta leave the room.
Even if it woulda happened to Roy Oswalt, I'd have the same reaction.
And then Gorzy stays in the game - that's a tough kid - for the last out.
Anyway, losing to this year's Astro team is really bad, because the Astros are just bad.
Their best player, Oswalt, shut the Cubs completely down for 7 and leaves with a 4-zip lead. After that the Astros tried as hard as they could to give the W back - the Cubs score 3 in the 8th and in the 9th leave the tying run (Ryan Theriot) at 2nd after the Astros errored him on and wild pitched him to 2nd.
But... Cubs 3 Astros 4.
PS: I did something really stupid with my blog. I had an extra feed coming to Cubby Blue, and I thought I could delete it and re-direct the traffic to still come here. Big Mistake. I don't know what actually happened, I just know it didn't re-direct. So if you stopped getting the feed, it's a pain in your ass and I apologize, but I've got to ask you to subscribe again.
