Wow, that was some crazy weather at Wrigley Field yesterday, wasn't it?
Well, I mean probably it was crazy.
Actually, don't even ask me because how would I know?
I'm in Orlando.
I didn't see any of the game at all.
But I guess it was SOME kinda pitching duel between Matt Garza and Jaime Garcia, and at the end the Cubs pulled out a walk off win when Joe Mather knocked in Bryan LaHair and Geovany Soto.
Big drama with the down-to-the-last-strike thing, and Mather came through.
(Didn't we just do a "rare" post?)
And judging from some of the tweets I read, LaHair must have had an incredible at-bat against burly Jason Motte with 6 pitches in a row fouled off and finally a walk.
Cubs 3 Cardinals 2.
So now with Marlon Byrd gone, newly acquired and thrilled-to-be-a-Cub Michael Bowdon joins the team's bullpen today, and surely he'll get right to work.
They made room for him on the roster by DFA-ing Rodrigo Lopez who could stay with the team if he clears waivers and you know, wants to.
