Terrible Ted took the mound yesterday and gave 'em nothin'. 7 innings. 3 hits. Nothin'.
The Dodger rookie, John Ely, was pretty impressive as well until Mikey Fontenot came off the bench and smacked a triple past hapless Dodger outfielder Xavier Paul, who got so flustered he let Tyler Colvin's next hit get by him too.
You GOT to love the kids!
I'd just turned on Emily's radio in my office after a loooong meeting, and just as Olson walked in Fontenot hits the triple. Kinda loud at my end of the hall.
So the Cubs are pretty much semi-hot having taken 2 series in a row, and 3 of their last 4.
Weirdness follows the Cubs at all times of course. Big Z goes to the hospital with a stomach ache, and Jeff Baker (way scarier) had to leave the game after losing sight in his right eye. Also down on the farm, the Cubs moved starting pitcher Andrew Cashner to the bullpen. Hmmm...
I'm about to jump in the shower and get down to the park because it's a special day today: the Cardinals are in town. There is NOTHING BETTER IN THE ENTIRE WORLD than the Cubs playing the Cards on Memorial Day weekend at Wrigley Field!
It's young stud pup Randy Wells against old dog Chris Carpenter.
And then tomorrow tonight the puck drops at 7 on channel 5 for game one of the Stanley Cup Finals with your hosts, the Chicago Blackhawks, welcoming the Philadelphia Flyers.
What a freaking WEEKEND for sports!
