Yesterday was crazy.
I was on edge all day, but also sleep deprived and jet-lagged which didn't help.
The Cubs need an innings eating 5th starter, and I never even heard about the guys the Cubs traded.
And Tommy Hunter is a real solid late innings reliever and... fine, take Junior Lake.
He was gonna go somewhere SOMEtime anyway.
But the guy we were all thinking about all day was Starlin Castro.
I really thought he was gonna get dealt.
Maybe if the rumors go away for awhile, he'll get back to his normal older self.
Then, WHAT AN AWESOME GAME!
Castro actually hit a screaming line drive - the best contact in weeks - but it was an out.
Still, he drove in a couple.
Anthony Rizzo is on a tear and hit another homer - he's got 3 in the last 3 games!
I was so worried about Jason Hammel after his last start, but he looked good.
And the bullpen didn't give up a thing.
Cubs 4 Brewers 1.
2 more games against these guys and PLEASE don't let up.
Beat the teams you're supposed to, and this year you better beat the Brewers.
