Isn't it nice to have the normal Jon Lester?
That guy we all expected?
He's been pitching really well lately, and it couldn't come at a better time.
7.1 innings, 1 walk, couple hits, no runs... the usual!
Cubs 4 Braves zeero.
I can get really used to that.
I told you it's insanely busy at work. Still going on.
Got home well into the game, turned on the radio, fired up the grill, and it all sounded like a routine game and... suddenly Pat Hughes is talking about a no-hitter.
How weird was it when the official scorer changed his mind on a first inning hit and instead gave Bryant an error?
In the 7th inning.
So instead of a basic one hitter, it changed into a no no.
That's when I ran into the house to turn on the tube just in time to see AJ Pierzynzki hit the liner.
How long can one man continue to show up at odd times and annoy me again and again?
For God's Sake, AJ: retire.
Leave me alone.
Anyway, kind of awesome with the big win.
I didn't get a chance to say anything, but this team... I've never seen anything like it.
Miguel Montero goes down with a thumb, and ho hum la di daaaa okay well we'll bring up THE NEXT BEST HITTING PROSPECT in the system: Kyle Schwarber.
I thought he did pretty good, and no this isn't his first time up but that first time was just a luxury.
This time it's serious and for real.
When Strop went off the rails, I was amazed to watch the kid walk out to the mound and do that catcher thing - getting on the same page and calming the situation.
I can't even get angry at Strop because I'm so gobsmacked at the entire show.
Schwarber, Bryant, Rizzo, Soler, Russell all hitting in the same lineup in 2015?
I thought that was years away.
I love this team.
Okay enough babbling.
Today at 4 it's the Jake Arrieta Show.
I LOVE THIS TEAM.
PS: Yeah so, no days off in the foreseeable future so again... sorry for the spotty posting.
