Yeah, I know this story was all about a "serious" breach of conduct.
Dodger GM Ned Colletti accused the Cubs of allowing Ryan Dempster to listen in on some of the phone chatter going on while the Cubs were attempting to trade Dempster to the Dodgers.
And of course Jed Hoyer and Theo Epstein denied.
And I know it's a touchy subject since tons of Cub Fans got really mad at Dempster...yada yada.
I didn't want to bring that up again, just this "listening in" part.
Because that part I found kinda funny.
Did it happen?
I don't know.
I don't even know how or why it morphed into an old commercial here, but whatever - I hope you laughed.
If you wanna talk about the game yesterday, it's kind of similar to other Cub games.
The ones where the wrong team gets more runs than the Cubs.
That young Travis Wood looked pretty dang good, though.
Against his old team the Cincinnati Reds, too.
Held 'em to one measly run when he handed the ball and a one run lead over to James Russel in the bottom of the 8th.
What was that inning anyway?
The sun's going down and the big shadow comes across the field between Russel and the batters, which is a for-sure Cub advantage.
But the Reds got about 5 or 6 hits, and since the Reds couldn't really see the ball at all, each hit was some kind of accident.
Brandon Phillips' first swing - Len and Bob said it looked like he was swinging under water.
Like he never saw the ball at all.
Then when he hit one down the third base line, he may as well have had his eyes shut.
He even did a "how did that even happen" gesture running to first.
So, whatever, that's the kind of stuff that happens to the Cubs.
Reds 4 Cubs 2.
By the way, that's supposed to be Theo, Ned Colletti, Jed Hoyer, Ryan Dempster, Tom Ricketts and a dog in the gif. And if you're too young to remember the "Whassup" commercials, go here.
