Sure, Spring Training just hatched.
But Jon Lester's 2 innings of 1 hit, 3 strikeout pitching was kind of attention-getting.
Then when he spoke to Jesse Rogers afterwards, the stuff he said slapped me in the face.
And I LIKE it.
(say it like this:)
Anthony Rizzo started it back in August and Joe Maddon's been preaching that since the second he showed up.
I've been really wishy washy because why do that to my expectations but hell man, this team.
I mean they've been purposely horrible for such a long time and now it's for real happening before our very eyes.
I've NEVER EVEN KNOWN what the "very" in front of the "eyes" is actually supposed to mean, but it sounds way more important than just "eyes" which is why I went with the "very".
It's fantastic how everything is magnified in the spring.
Mike Olt got a walk yesterday.
Oif is sitting across the way in the office.
I go, "HEY MIKE OLT GOT A WALK!"
Okay, shutting up now.
I'm kind of the village babbler lately.
BECAUSE I BELIEVE JON LESTER.
I BELIEVE ANTHONY RIZZO AND JOE MADDON.
Okay Jason Hammel's gonna be on the radio in about an hour.
ps: Frequent commenter Bud sent me this pic from yesterday's game. It's Lester's first pitch as a Cub!
Thanks and... SO JEALOUS, BUD!
