So yesterday was all about Jeff Samardzija's excellent day.
But a play happened in that last Cubs v. Rockies game in the 7th inning that, if you were watching at home, had to make you get off the couch and do a little Cub dance in your man cave.
2 outs, Cubs up by one, you're still a tad nervous about Samardzija's lack of wins and... Colorado 2nd baseman Josh Rutledge hits just an absolute SCREAMIN' liner up on the top of the wall in left.
And what happens in the next...what could that be? 6 seconds? ...whatever it was it just took your breath away.
Soriano, that guy has come so far in left.
I SWEAR he was barely a high school player just a couple years ago.
With a great arm.
But anyway, he doesn't panic, he plays the bounce off the wall perfectly, turns and makes the perfect relay to Starlin Castro, Castro like a whirlwind turns and throws the ball to the bag at second, where Darwin Barney is squatting with his back to the play at the base, catches the ball and puts it right down on the side of the bag JUST as Rutledge is sliding in.
Think of how many moving parts there were in that play.
Of all the things that could go wrong.
You're OUT, Rutledge.
Baseball at it's absolute best.
Okay, enough with the "gorgeous" stuff, Tim.
Today you should totally go to Wrigley Field and see the best young pitcher in baseball, 24 year old Matt Harvey.
Look at the stats.
Up against Edwin Jackson.
