So I'm doing these little acrylic flags on 3" x 3" canvas for each game of the season.
I swear these would be such awesome tiles for some room somewhere.
Anyway, you'll note that the vast majority of them say "W".
18 of them, in fact.
After beating Gerrit Cole and the Pittsburgh Pirates 7-2, the Cubs are now 18-6, which is the best record in baseball.
Yeah, it's still so early and not even remotely summer yet but still oh my God can you believe this?
I didn't get to see the game but it sounded like there may actually still be some bad blood between these teams since enough guys got plunked the ump had to warn the benches.
Ben Zobrist and Dave Ross had the big hits with guys on, each drove in 2.
Jason Hammel gave up 2 runs, the hack.
He's having an amazing year and this Pirates team has some serious pop which didn't happen except for an early dinger from Andrew McCutchen.
And right now, well just look:
Earned Run Average is way above average for your favorite team, with Arrieta at #1, Hammel at #3, and Lester at #6.
And tomorrow is Mr. Arrieta himself.
PS: Here's a closer look at tonight's little flag.
I thought just making them blue and white would be boring to look at, so... colors.
My computer got stuck in my Patagonia backpack because the zipper jammed.
I mean, I could not move the zipper either way to save my life.
I had to get out scissors and cut the thing open.
Now, I think it's 2 years old but they have a serious guarantee about their products.
So I took it to the store, explained what happened.
They apologized for the inconvenience and gave me a new one.
I'm still in shock.
I will give them my business forever.
