Man, can somebody put a force-field up around this guy?
After catching a line drive in the shoulder a couple weeks ago, another line smash catches Tom Gorzelanny in the left hand yesterday.
Seriously, if I was walking down the street with him and I saw a banana peel on the sidewalk, I'd steer Gorzy to the nearest crosswalk.
He got X-rayed and it came back negative, but man that's gotta smart.
The good news was he was pitching not like a 5th starter, but more like an ace. He went 6.2 innings and only gave up 3 hits and no runs. Not bad. And the Cubs beat the NL East 1st place Phillies 4-1 last night, and it's kind of a nice little streak going for our favorite team.
Calming, isn't it?
Okay, lets see what happens today.
A couple weeks ago or so I was reading the Trib sports, and Trib photographer Scott Strazzante had captured one of the funniest photos I've ever seen - that's Adam Burish and Ben Eager on the bench just giving it to a Canuck. Eager's expression is absolutely priceless, and you can imagine any quote from "Slapshot" coming out of his mouth.
They'll be playing again Friday night here in town, going for win #3 vs. the Sharks, who have exactly this many wins against the Hawks so far: zero.
