Did you stay up to watch?
Clayton Kershaw and the unstoppable Dodgers against Travis Wood and the Cubs.
And the Cubs WIN 3-2?
This is why people play the lottery.
Didn't you know Kershaw's having a season that will become historically important, Cubs?
Plus - top of the 3rd with Travis Wood leading off.
It's the best pitcher in baseball facing a pitcher.
The pitcher singles.
The pitcher moves to second when Dodger catcher A.J. Ellis interferes with Barney.
Then Dioner Navarro hits one and the pitcher scores from second.
The guys at Vineline asked me to do an illustration about Travis Wood being good at everything.
Last night was a perfect example of why.
Does he play banjo?
I don't know.
But I'm pretty sure that guy can play anything he wants to and beat you pretty good too.
I played golf one time with this guy Brian Sweeney.
He was the younger brother of ex-pinch hitting specialist Mark Sweeney (he played for about 10 Major League teams including the Cardinals and Dodgers).
So Sweeney is kind of a jock, played WR in college I think, and he takes sports seriously.
He tees off.
Ball goes in the trees and not very far.
Club goes flying as Sweeney yells, "I HATE WHEN I'M NOT AN ATHLETE!"
EL MY A OFF.
But anyway, I don't think Travis has had to yell that very often.
