Well the only thing that could possibly be more maddening than a rainout is someone getting hurt in a cold, wet game.
So okay, call it.
Move Jake Arrieta's start to today and lets hope this crap clears out.
Haven't you been waiting for someone to hint at the best pitcher in baseball being on steroids?
Of course some one would say that, but whatever.
He's handling it so well - he can't ignore it, right?
So he's saying all the right stuff just like the totally open guy he is.
After the last no-hitter when he immediately said he didn't have his good stuff - surely some thought "what an asshole".
But that guy is just honest.
It was an amazing series and they came this close to moving on.
But they didn't and I say ahhhh.. now you guys can relax for a nice extended time and heal.
The only drag would be if Andrew Shaw goes away.
In the meantime, the Cubs have to keep concentrating and win these games against the teams they should beat.
Given how crappy so many of the NL teams are this year, that may be harder than we can imagine.
Like, I'm already thinking about Pittsburgh, which comes after the rest of Milwaukee and Atlanta, who both are not good.
That's okay for me and you, but not the team.
