Well, I don't know about you but the news that Javier Baez was coming up and gonna start at 2nd in Colorado tonight was a complete surprise.
Maybe it was a self-protective thing I had going on in my head - like nothing THAT good could happen this year.
But also, I believed Jed when he said it wasn't happening.
No more, Jed ya big liar.
Really, it's kinda smart to get this thing started - if it all (Baez, Soler, Bryant...) happened at once next year, the pressure would be impossible.
This way, at least for Baez, he can get some of that out of the way.
(And we do expect to see Soler next month so... one at a time.)
Cannot wait for 7:40 Chicago time tonight, and I'm sure every Cub Fan in the country's gonna be watching.
Tuesday, August 5th, 2014.
May just turn out to be kind of an important date.
