When one follows the path of The Limerick, one must follow the rhyme where the rhyme goes.
And while I promise the Michael Bourn part is a complete lie, that other part about the Cubs tickets for sale for dirt cheap is absolutely true.
(I would imagine most season ticket holders would say the same thing.)
Anyway, it's that time of year again.
The I Hate The Astros page...
Unfortunately, our favorite team got swept at Wrigley Field by a Houston team that came to town with a 19 and 34 record.
That means they were on a course to lose over 100 (one hundred) games.
They're freaking HORRIBLE.
And yet, the Cubs have proven somehow to be horribler.
Even in my below Mendoza expectations, I thought they'd take a couple from the Astros.
Luckily, there's a day off tomorrow.
And then the team that projects to win about a hundred games comes to town.
Ahhhh, of course I'm dejected as I'm sure you are with this sweep.
While it would be easy to just quit paying attention now, I can't forget the kids.
If Aramis doesn't play (with his new lip-stitches), the Cubs could field a team of almost all kids: Barney, Castro, LeMahieu in the infield, and pick your guys in the outfield - Colvin, Campana, Snyder, Montanez.
I'm sure Quade won't do that, but whatever.
It's the Cardinals and I absolutely expect the Cubs to get creamed.
But if by some miracle the kids pull out a victory, it'll actually be pretty sweet.
No hopes, though.
I predict the Cards will score more runs than the Cubs have hits.
