We had a bowling party last night.
School night, so not a late one, awesome fun.
And when I finally turned on the tube... first, the Cubs are winning big.
Then, there's a guy I've never seen before up at the plate, and it says he's got a couple hits.
Oh yeah, they had to bring up another guy to replace Byrd.
He flies out.
Samardzija strikes out 3 to end the game.
They show some highlights.
Wow, the Mets are really bad.
You heard about their owner, right?
Ripped Jose Reyes and Carlos Beltran pretty good in the paper.
I got an email from a Met fan who said, "...the owner popped all the helium baloons at the party, they may sink like a stone."
And that looks like it may be happening, which is pretty fortuitous for the Cubs.
Anyway, look at this team now.
Lets see who got pulled out of the hat so far...
Andrew Cashner is Casey Coleman.
Randy Wells is Doug Davis.
Matt Garza is Scott Maine.
Marlon Byrd is this new guy Montanez.
Geovany Soto is Wellington Castillo.
Tony Campana is Tyler Colvin.
And Jeff Baker is going to be somebody else already here for a couple days.
If I'm Mike Quade, I probably have a cheat sheet in my pocket with all the new names.
