What a crap day.
Jeff Samardzija had a buncha walks and only lasted 3.2 innings.
Plus 5 Earnies (I heard Keith Moreland say that the other day, cracked me up.)
Nowhere near giving up on him, though.
I was driving to a meeting when Sarah Spain came on ESPN and said the Cubs were down.
I thought it was a night game.
Turned on 'GN right when Darwin Barney hit the triple and drove in 3.
Had the top down, let out a satisfying "ALL RIGHT BAAAAAARRRRRNNEEEEEEYYYYYYYYY!"
Turned out to be the high point of yesterday's miserable 24 hours.
I found out they lost 3-5 on the way back to the office.
Which meant they...didn't win a game in Miami.
Then like everybody else I turned on the Hawks game.
Stupid way to start with the lame fight, and then a stupid way to end.
Oh well, may you find the correct ingredients and your gin and tonics taste fabulous throughout this lengthy summer.
Now it's the Reds and then Cardinals at home.
