Travis Wood allowed a home run in each of the first 5 innings of yesterdays latest loss to the St. Louis Cardinals, this one 6 to 9.
That tied some kind of record with the 5 consecutive innings, but it also tied a more personal Cubs' record of 5 homers allowed in the same game by a single pitcher.
The others were Carlos Zambrano, Ismael Valdez, Steve Stone, and Warren Hacker (who pitched for the Cubs from 1948 - 1956.
Unfortunately, the last post I did on young Mr. Wood was kind of the same subject.
But there were signs of life yesterday, and the Cubs did score more runs than in the entire last series so, you know, not bad for this year.
Anthony Rizzo, he looks like he puts about as much effort in his swing as it takes me to hit this X key.
See how easy that was?
Only Rizzo's effort produces a number on the scoreboard at Wrigley and generates fabulous crowd excitement.
I decided to stop saying anything about whatever trade may or may not happen.
It's a never ending argument and all based on something someone else said.
I'll wait til either Theo or Demp are quoted directly.
Lastly, I gotta go to work.
