No, this isn't from yesterday's game. But the site I snag pictures from hasn't updated yet. And I can't really, you know, complain.
After Wednesday's super-frustrating Wrigley Field Super-Shitty Pitcher Exposition and Old-Tyme Country Faire, the Cubs re-kicked the asses of the Mets for a satisfying series conclusion. AND we jumped the Pirates in the standings. Big day.
Aside from a Benny Hill-like double error in the top of the 3rd that led to an early 0-1 deficit, yesterday was complete domination. Zambrano continued to pitch well, and got to leave the game without throwing 127 again, Both of our big-money lefties (Pena and Fuk) managed to hit balls out of the park. And we beat a team that we should damn well beat. That's about all I'm conditioned to ask for at this point.
We've got three games against Pittsburgh and three against Houston coming up. We've got a chance to peek over .500 (we're 22-26) before we run into the wood chipper of the Cardinals, Reds, and Phillies (PUB CRAWL!). Let's do this thing.
