I was up in the kitchen with the radio on when I heard Pat say that Albert Almora would pinch hit.
I RAN to the TV, turned it on, found whatever channel the Cubs were playing on last night and by the time I got there, Almora was jogging off.
So I missed it.
But I have to believe they'll start him soon.
Day game in Philadelphia?
Can't be much less pressure than that, right?
I'm bummed about Soler's hammie, but this is just the kind of situation to bring a promising kid up.
You're here because someone got hurt, the expectations aren't super high, the Cubs are playing well... just play, kid.
Nobody expects you to stay, really, so enjoy the coffee while it's hot.
I'm dying to see an outfield of killer gloves.
Crazy busy gotta run but... GO CUBS.
