Okay pretty stupid I know.
But cut me some slack, I've been in bed since Saturday with bronchitis - it's my first day out of the house since then.
I'm so glad they called the game last night so Jake Arrieta didn't have to, you know... throw an inning and then have to sit down and wait for the rain to clear.
It's a day night doubleheader, the first game with Arrieta at 4:05, the next with Kyle Hendricks at 7:05.
It occurred to me: where the hell did that term come from?
I expected to find an old quote from some crusty manager in 1902 who said something like, "We'll have to double head over to the park today."
It's a railroad term meaning a train with a giant load so heavy that it needs two engines ("heads") to pull it.
Well, at least the Cards losing zeero to 11 last night was awesome.
To the Reds.
I got texts from Dickie the Cardinal Fan that were hilarious: "I blame Metheny and his sit in our laurels and give the starters an unscheduled rest idea." and "Get ready for a one game playoff at Wrigley with a spiraling Cardinal team."
Panic much, Dickie?
Plus the Pirates lost so the Cubs move up by gettin' rained on.
Can't finish a post today without repeating Ernie, only with a slight modification:
"Lets win two!"
