Well, with how awful everything was last night, it was quite gratifying to go to the ESPN stats page and see these:
Kris Bryant is in the insanely elite group.
He'll be breaking records and making history and...
Don't think about what he'll eventually cost, just enjoy.
Speaking of enjoy...how about last night's game in New York?
Isn't it wonderful to, once in awhile, get a reminder of where you came from so you can tell just how far you've come?
No it's not.
Please never do that again.
Poor Jason Hammel - it's like some kind of imaginary switch that happens on July 1st.
Maddon tried to save the bullpen and left him in when he just wasn't right.
And he gave up 5 homers, 10 runs and his ERA went from 2.58 in June to 3.45 in July.
How many times Len and JD said words like "painful" and "he's got to wear it".
I haven't read around, but surely every single paper is talking about Hammel's 2nd half woes.
Hopefully it's in his head and Chris Bosio can do some magic whispering to get him right because... the Cubs need that guy.
The one from last month.
2 more chances in NY to square this up with the Mets.
But also remember, these regular season games with this team mean about as much as they did last year with this team.
Don't let it wreck your 4th because everything is going to be fine.
