IT'S THE GREATEST WIN!
Coming at the best time.
I was dreading the whole All-Star break with another lu...lo..sss...
But it didn't happen.
Lackey gave up 6 but seemed to last longer than anybody else lately.
And then, the bullpen came in and... nobody scored.
I thought... I REMEMBER THIS!
Strop, Edwards and Rondon.
No hits, no walks, 2 Ks.
Meanwhile, Albert Almora hits a double and a 2 run dinger.
Matt Szczur pinch hits a double and scores on Kris Bryant's single.
And Willson Contreras got a hit and knocked one in, too.
Look at what he's done in 23 games:
Okay that's CRAZY!
Remember when you didn't know who it would be, but SOMEbody would come through?
Here's what the season looks like at the All-Star break:
88 little 3" x 3" canvases with acrylics and ink.
I use a Rotring Art Pen that I've owned for years now and all I do is get it more ink cartridges because it's such a quality pen.
It draws and it writes and here's where to get 'em (and if you do, get the FINE SKETCH (not calligraphy) and go ahead and get extra boxes of cartridges).
Okay, happy All-Star break to you.
And happy All-Star break to the First Place Chicago Cubs, and good luck to the 7 All-Stars.
Remember, a win means a home field advantage for the National League.
Which means it's possible that Wrig... ahhh we'll save that thought but I'm sure you've all got it in the back of your minds.
If not, listen to BP Wrigleycast.
It will lift your spirits.
I'm probably going to take a break too, since work is crazy again, but if I get lucky I'll put up something.
