It's pretty easy to look back on any past year in this blog and find art that's appropriate for as hideous loss as last night.
This one if from a bad loss to the Cards in '04.
That guy in Scott Maine's uniform is the same one we saw in Boston last year, rather than the one who was here earlier this year.
You know how exponents work?
There's the regular sized number, and then there's the little number just to the upper right of the regular sized number?
Sometimes, the opponent's score is the regular sized number, and then you can just switch out "Cub Bullpen" for the little number in the upper right and you squared the score.
Like last night went like so:
It's particularly relevant since the process of using exponents is called "raising the power", which is what the Phillies did when whoever it was hit a grand slam for those guys.
Anyway, I'm super busy so I'm happy to say I didn't see it.
Or at least happy I didn't see the 9th inning, when the bullpen went all exponential.
I guess Matt Garza was pretty great, back to his normal Garza self after that bout of flu.
Lastly though, so what?
Last night was just a blip on the radar of the USS Epstein as it stays on course for uh, something bigger in a couple years.
