That was a head scratcher, wasn't it?
Did you see anything that might have led to Junior Lake feeling disrespected by the Marlins, to the point where he'd "shush" their bench with his finger over his mouth after hitting a homer?
What a weird move by a guy supposed to have earned more playing time since Jorge Soler's ankle is injured more than anybody thought and now he's out for 2-3 weeks.
And I'll bet Joe Maddon has an amazing ability to make you feel 3 feet tall if you do something that silly.
No juicebox for you, Junior.
Here's what he really said (from Cubs.com): "I don't want us to take a page out of 'Major League' and flamboyantly flip a bat after a long home run," Maddon said. "I don't want that at all. That has nothing to do with us ascending. I would even like to use this moment for our Minor League guys, that [flipping the bat] doesn't play. For our kids watching, it doesn't play. Don't do that; that's not cool. It's very, very much not cool. If you're watching the game back home in Chicago tonight, don't do that."
"That has nothing to do with us ascending."
And Jon Lester and the Cubs lost 3-7 and dropped 2 of 3 to the Miami Marlins.
Meanwhile over in Tampa, the Blackhawks scored 2 goals at the very end of their Stanley Cup Championship Game #1 vs the Lightning and pulled out a 2-1 v-i-c-t-o-r-y.
And 2012 first round pick Tuevo Teravainen scored and also stole the puck to feed Antoine Vermette for Vermette's goal.
The Hawks are just... so good.
