Well, that wasn't such a good weekend, was it?
After the Saturday 4-12 blowout, I had to go to the grocery and this song came on the radio.
If it didn't have the part about a 16 year old girl as sweet as she could be and instead had a part about, you know, the Cubs leaving men on base and having bullpen problems and how come a starting pitcher can't seem to go more that 5 innings then it would be the perfect theme song for 2015.
But really it's the good times bad times part, huh?
Yesterday the Cubs left 5 guys on 2nd or 3rd, the RISP guys.
They forgot about the S part, and it killed them.
3 hits and 9 Ks against Matt Garza is not good although we all know that had it not been Mother's Day and Jorge Soler wasn't swinging his Mother's Day special pink bat, that shot to center in the 4th woulda been gone.
Anywhoo... another lost series to the Brewers.
And now, it's the Dog Ass Mets coming to Chicago in supposedly delightful 72 degree Wrigley Field.
It's a big 4 game series and the first 3 games, well way back at the start of the season we'd all be perfectly confident in Lester, Arrieta, and Hammel against the Mets and their stellar staff with the 2.86 team ERA.
But these guys have to get it together.
Wouldn't 7 innings of shutout feel good today, Jon Lester?
And Tuesday, my Met Fan buddy Pete tells me their top pitching prospect will get his first start in the Bigs at Wrigley Field.
Wouldn't it be nice to hammer this guy, you Cub batters?
All year long.
I'll take it but it would be nice if the good times part came back on.
