I found this old painting from 2007 on the blog, where Ronny Cedeno decided to steal second on the same pitch that Jacque Jones walked, but Cedeno idiotically overslid second and was called out.
Killing a potential rally.
Last night with 2 outs and the Cubs up by 1 in the 13th inning and Ronny on 3rd, Kevin Gregg throws a pitch a foot in front of the bag that gets away from Castillo who can't find it and Cedeno runs.
I'm so happy.
Castillo throws home and Cedeno is out by a freaking mile.
But Kevin Gregg apparently can't bend at the waist and the ball goes between his legs rather than in his glove and misguided baserunner Cedeno crosses the plate.
He's a Cub Killer no matter what team he's on.
I turned off the tube.
Later I got an alert saying the Cubs had lost.
All that came after a really good duel between Andrew Cashner and Chris Rusin.
And now it's on to Los Angeles, where the 75-loss Cubs will play the 76-win Dodgers.
I promise I will be in bed by the 4th.
