Somewhere in the middle of what I guess was a pro baseball game, Jim Deshaies said something like, "For the Cubs this is a yard sale - there is junk everywhere."
Bobbles in the outfield and tons of walks and baserunning gaffes and some of the dumbest infield plays...all happened in one game.
When Deshaies said that yard sale thing, I was immediately reminded of this dog park they're building in our Park.
They built it, then I guess it wasn't big enough so they're re-doing it but it's like just a bunch of ugly chain link fencing, cement and orange plastic. And while I've never actually been in the thing, I would imagine once in awhile there are...turds.
With Dodgers on 1st and 2nd, Adrian Gonzales hits a single to load 'em but DeJesus bobbles and everyone moves up a base, scoring the run.
Travis Wood walks 4 Dodgers in the 3rd, the last one forcing a run.
Turd turd turd turd.
Dodgers on first and third, one out with Edwardo Sanchez on the mound.
Dodger hits a fast comebacker to Sanchez who stares down the guy on 3rd, lets the other guy go to second, and gets the out at first.
BUT THAT WAS AN EASY DOUBLE PLAY.
Julio Borbon hits a double - awesome!
Then a pitch doesn't quite get away from Dodger catcher A.J. Ellis but Borbon thinks it did, runs to third.
Pretty bad turd because he got DFA'd after the game.
Old friend Carlos Marmol pitches a scoreless 9th.
The score wasn't even that bad, but there was so much crap on the field the Cubs just kept slipping in it.
Cut to a shot of grim Dale Sveum.
The Dodgers have won 12 road games in a row, and they've got 2 more at Wrigley.
Let us hope our Cubs can change Wrigley from a dog park to, you know, a baseball diamond.
