Two 3-run homers off Matt Garza from guys I've never even heard of.
And they were Astros.
Guys, I figure we're going to go through this alot this season.
Extended losing streaks, nightmare losses, bullpen implosions (although Randy Wells looked pretty good last night).
It's not even June yet, so we'll just have to figure out a way to keep our collective sanity, keep plugging along, and keep our eyes on the horizon where there may be help this summer and if not well, there's the bigger prize coming some time before I die.
Take a minute to rant if you want, this is the place to do it.
But don't go buyin' no Brewer hats, okay?
That was Houston's toughest pitcher last night, that Bud Norris guy.
Maybe tonight it'll be a little different.
Whether he's ready to come up - I don't know.
But we should let Theo Epstein stick to his plan, bring him up when the Cubs can get maximum control and value from him.
Plus, he's already failed in the majors once.
Can you imagine the pressure on a kid, coming up and being expected to do well on this team?
In some ways, I'd say just forget about him this year.
On the other hand, maybe it's the perfect year to bring him up since nobody expects jack.
Maybe that actually reduces the pressure.
I don't know.
But I'll keep trying for laughs or rants or whatever just to keep sane.
