This is gonna kill me.
We're lookin' at a Cubs West Coast road trip with a bunch of 9 pm starts.
Starts to games that matter in August.
Starts to games that will probably be decided by a single run that happens around midnight.
It might be a good idea to switch brews - beer to coffee.
If I owned a coffee shop, I'd hang some big screens and totally take advantage.
How's about a steamy mug of Kris Bryant Homer Brew?
Or coffee made with 100% Arrieta beans.
A Castro Espresso, A Lester Latte, or Rizzo Grande.
Instead of ale, switch to a Miguel Montero Macchiato.
Dexter Fowler comes up, make mine a double.
A creamy Chris Coghlan Clutch Cappucino sounds good too.
Choose to have any of the above come in a mug that says, "Addison Russell. World's Greatest Dad."
Watch a Kyle Schwarber home run leave the park in 2 seconds, try the instant.
All our coffee is Epstein Fair Trade and Sustainably Harvested.
Too much caffeine?
Then try the Denorfia Decaf...
Man, is it just me or is everybody in the best mood ever?
Such a drag for Jon Lester to go into the 9th with a shutout and give up the one run, but then a Kris Bryant walkoff homer?
That's just ridiculous giddy stuff.
I'm hugely concerned about Jorge Soler - the obliques are never good, and a shoulder for Motte... these are important guys, out for significant time.
But tonight is Jake Arrieta vs Matt Cain and the Giants can't be very happy having been swept by the Cubs in what had to be one of their most important series of '15.
Think I'll stay up with a cuppa Joe.
