That was semi-nutty yesterday.
Phone buzzed, I looked and it said, "Cubs place Clayton Richard on 15-day DL; option Adam Warren to Triple-A; select Gerardo Conception, recall Spencer Patto..."
Flurry of activity, as they say.
Richard, I guess they still see value in his left handedness.
So he "developed a blister" (wink wink) and they sent him down.
Patton's been up already and if you recall he was pretty good this Spring.
Don't really remember Conception, but that's a serious baseball name so cool.
Anyway the news out of all that is Warren going to Iowa to get stretched out so he can start and the Cubs can have a 6-man rotation.
Read it from Jesse Rogers.
Interesting and kinda cool.
Not cool is dropping game #2 to the Cards last night.
But I'm so not letting it bug me too much.
This must be what Cardinal fans used to feel like.
I have supreme confidence and this ain't nothin' but a pothole.
So, don't worry it's all gonna be just fine.
Okay gots to run.
I heard, and I quote, "Possible baseball sized hail" in the midwest, and it looks and feels pretty gloomy out.
Hopefully the Cubs/Cards game happens this afternoon, and the "baseball" hail comes in the form of Kris Bryant and Anthony Rizzo bombs.
