I forgot that Lassie was a collie.
Anyway, this is a sort of kind-spirited note to Theo Epstein to just...give us a little bit of Cub pleasure and bring up Anthony Rizzo now.
I saw a tweet from The Cub Reporter last night that said this:
Then Jeff Samardzija seemed to run out of gas in Arizona, and the Diamondbacks hit three singles in a row going up 3-1 in the 5th.
Then a guy named Jeff Ziegler tossed his second inning for AZ with a crazy sidearm delivery and all kindsa goofy movement on his pitches, the velocity of which would have been legal on any highway in the country, and went through Soto, Barney and Mather in about a minute.
And before you knew it everybody was going home and the DBacks won 6 to 1.
Gimme something, Theo.
Gimme Anthony Rizzo.
I understand about Randy Wells.
I understand I may not see Ryan Dempster in a Cub uni again, and Randy may be Ryan for the duration of this season.
But you can take somebody off this roster and put in Rizzo.
You're creative that way.
Make it happen.
And all you guys reading this, I'll entertain any thoughts you've got for similar posts to send this message to Theo.
Pick a movie scene or a book title or anything in current events or anything at all and I'll try to draw it, just no one is allowed to have hurt feelings if I don't get to it.
