Man, how nice is it to have something good to talk about?
I just figured the way the season started off that Jeff Samardzija would certainly be a bust.
But just the opposite happened, because he was sort of brilliant.
We shouldn't just slap the "horse" tag on him (I swear I heard Dale Sveum use that term) and assume that's going to happen every time out.
Did you see he didn't walk ANYBODY?
That was amazing.
Ian Desmond (by the way, what's up with all the Ians? It's like the opposite of a baseball name for some reason) said of the Starter Jeff: "He was anywhere from 98 to 90 with his fastball and had his split, the occasional cut...he was out there, he was pumping strikes."
It's kinda cool hearing an opposing player say that about a Cub pitcher.
We don't have to bring up Carlos Marmol or the fact that the Cubs should be undefeated at 3-0, okay?
Lets just bask in a W for a whole day.
And then welcome Lyin' Ryan and the Milwaukee Brewers.
PS: Starlin Castro has 4 steals already. If you figure he gets four steals every three games for one hundred and sixty two games, well, you're better at math than me.
PSPS: Journalist Mike Wallace died over the weekend. Yeah, I didn't think he was tough enough on Roger Clemens when they did that interview in '08, but if you have a couple minutes go to the Daily Beast, where they gathered Wallace's 10 best interviews starting in '57 with Frank. Lloyd. Wright.
