Oh the drama!
I got these images off the replay video.
Blew 'em up and tried to make the framing the same.
But am I crazy or is there a grown man with a glove on (backwards K shirt) who puts his glove right in some little kid's face?
A kid with a glove, too.
Shame on you, grown man with the glove.
(Nice job, other guy standing by with the quick hands!)
But otherwise, Kris Bryant hitting a grand salami in spring ball just made it feel so much closer to summer, didn't it?
In fact, there wasn't much to dislike about yesterday's practice game with the Dodgers at all.
Klye Hendricks looked just like Kyle Hendricks!
I can't stop thinking, as I watch Cub pitchers throwing impressive breaking stuff, how Matt Garza first came to our favorite team one Spring, looked like crap and blamed it on the dry air.
Kyle Schwarber looked like... you don't wanna throw a strike? I ain't swinging.
Perhaps you haven't heard, Dodger pitcher, that I'm going to be the lead off hitter in about a month and I'LL TAKE YOUR FREE BASES THANK YOU.
Carl Edwards Jr. comes in for an inning and strikes out 3.
HE'S SO GOOD!
Jeimer Candelario subbing at first for stiff-backed Anthony Rizzo goes 3 for 3 with a double, a triple and 3 runs scored.
That guy was so impressive last spring, too.
Jason Heyward is still hitless but so is Ben Zobrist and Miguel Montero.
Nothing can bum me out in these games except the pitch in on the wrist thrown by wild young pitchers trying to impress.
Addison Russell got nailed in the arm yesterday. Mini hurl.
Here's today's lineup brought to you by Carrie Muskat.
Besides Kawasaki (starting at SS because Russell's a little sore) and LaStella I think they're fielding a team of people who would all get carded at Buffalo Wild Wings.
Okay that's all I got.
