Mmm... that's tasty!
So out of nowhere the Cubs did something that... I can't remember the last time they swept somebody.
Has there been a sweep of any team since The Reconstruction started?
Sorry - short memory.
Anyway, Travis Wood did that thing where he goes up to bat and when the other guy throws it, Travis swings his bat real fast and it hits the ball and goes all the way into the place where all those happy people are sitting.
And it's only the second inning but you and I are in a really really good mood already because we know that that's super good when that happens.
And then yada yada a bunch of other stuff happens and the Mets tie it up but does that bother Anthony Rizzo?
NOOOoooooo (sing that "Nooo" with me).
That guy, what would happen if just once he swung at a pitch like Junior Lake swings at a pitch?
If he went slightly out of control and swung and connected?
Lake Michigan at least.
Okay so there's no more tie after Rizzo hits one out and then Junior Lake.
With the gorgeous shot to right center knocking in Barney and Bonifacio and Lake going all the way to third and whoops a mishandle by Wright and Junior tries to score and is out but whatever man, the Cubs are up to stay and the sweep is in the books.
Cubs 7 Mets 4.
Meanwhile, my little At Bat app is going CRAZY becuase it's the draft and every time someone gets drafted it does it's little alarm and at number four it's the Cubs picking up a catcher from Indiana awesomely named Kyle Schwarber who is supposed to maybe be the best hitter available this year and the Cubs really need a catcher in the System but they're not sure he's professionally down with the Tools Of Ignorance so if he turns out to be an outfielder that's okay - they really just wanted the bat.
Kind of a good day.
I don't really know anything about Schwarber, but if any of you guys are writers at like, Sports Illustrated or something here's a quote you can get from this blog:
Tim Souers said, "I am really excited about this pick."
Seriously - just copy and paste.
Lastly, Donald Trump.
I'm driving into work this morning and at a stop sign I look up and HOLY SHIII...
He's putting his name on his building in letters that are 2 storeys (I think that's the right - "stories" is what you'd find in a book, right?) tall.
But maybe Tom Ricketts should take a little lesson from Donald and do the same thing with his jumbotrons.
Okay, today it's the Marlins but before they get here I strongly suggest you take a nice long sip of Chicago Sweepmets Summer Ale.
