Did you know that there is a "Super Moon" in the skies above us right now?
It's the closest the moon has been to the Earth in 18 years, and if it's clear tonight it'll appear to be GIGANTIC when it comes up.
The closer the moon, the greater it's gravitational force, which means baseballs fly at a greater altitude, Carlos Silva's stomach appears to be his chest, and if I had a pole in the water the biggest musky EVER would come up and bite my lure.
Yesterday there were 40 hits in the Cubs/Reds game, and 22 of them from the Cubs.
But they fell by 1 to the Reds 13-14.
Starlin Castro had a 3 run dinger, but so did Scott Rolen, and Joey Votto hit one for 2 runs.
Big Z pitched, got knocked around a little, didn't lose his temper and in fact he faked being mad when Quade visited the mound to take him out.
Strange things happen when a full moon is out.
But I guess the gravitational forces also affected Carlos Silva's pitches too, as they must have all been up. He got dinged for 11 hits in 3 innings and gave up 8 runs, although only 5 were earned.
So anyway, if you find your hair sticking up kinda funny tonight, don't worry.
Just gravity, man.
