Do you remember when Anthony Rizzo said that last year?
I'm... pretty sure I'm a full-grown man, but when he said that I got weak in the knees.
Fell to the ground and thanked the Baseball Gods for sending me a True Cub Avenging Angel.
And now look: it's all true.
Yeah yeah, I write here usually with a slant towards the optimistic, but this is like selling a commercail: I never really believe it til I'm on the plane.
And I believe I just heard the Captain say, "Flight attendants, please take your seat."
You know what else Anthony Rizzo likes to do?
Hit homers in PIttsburgh.
Like this one off Jason Grilli in 2013:
So it was pretty frustrating last night when Rizzo knocked in a run and then the lightning came and made the game a no-go.
I can't remember how many pitches Jon Lester threw, but it wasn't that many so for a wasted start maybe not that bad.
And tonight at 6:05 Jake Arrieta vs the Pirates' newly acquired searching for consistency ex Mariner, Blue Jay, Astro and Phillie,J.A. Happ.
May Rizzo and the Cubs please help him find consistency with consistent scoring throughout the night.
