As former Cubs broadcaster Steve Stone used to say: "Let that be a lesson to all you young pitchers out there."
If Kris Bryant is up and there are guys on 2nd and 3rd, don't go walking him on purpose.
Because the guy on deck is named Anthony Rizzo.
Even if you think there's a better chance at a double play.
Because the next guy up is named Anthony Rizzo.
Even if he's gone 0 for 3.
Because that guy's name is Anthony Rizzo.
But that's what Will Smith and the Brewers did, and Anthony Rizzo made them pay.
He reached on down and smoked a double split perfectly between right and center.
That guy you put on first?
He runs like the freaking wind.
He almost crossed the plate before the Brewer cutoff guy caught the ball.
Cubs 5 Brewers 4.
Cut to Rizzo on 2nd.
He's kind of pumped.
You and I scream our heads off.
41 year old Joe Nathan.
Coming back from surgery (I can't stress enough - read "The Arm" by Jeff Passan because it's amazing and you'll know so much more about surgery and coming back from it).
The last time he threw a pitch, about half the Cubs were either rookies or still prospects.
He struck out Ryan Braun, Jonathan Lucroy and Chris Carter.
That's kind of a nice thing to happen, right?
Addison Russell left with a "left heel contusion".
I wonder if it's on the bottom or on the side.
Either way, that sounds like it hurts.
2 for 3 with a walk and 2 RBIs.
Day before 2 for 4 with a run scored.
Maybe he's finding that mojo again.
Sox for 4 games starting Monday.
Chris Sale with the cutting up of retro uniforms and getting suspended by the team for I think 5 games.
I'm a dad.
I'd call that a time out, wouldn't you?
