What a cheap laugh, but whatever - you can't stop talking about Kris Byrant.
Had to work late last night so I missed everything, but caught the last couple at bats on the car radio driving home and you know what?
Bryant has played all of 6 games in the bigs, and already he's like... expected to produce.
With the Cubs down a run in the top of the 9th, Denorfia and Soler both ground out.
Rizzo hits a single.
And then... it's just DIFFERENT now.
Bryant steps to the plate.
Listening, I just thought - well there's a million thoughts, right?
How in the how did this happen less than a month ago they were just a pile of promise It would be impossible if he knocks in the tying run but he might which is unlike how I've allowed myself to think for years who cares if he's got two strikes it is completely in the realm of possibility that he'll hit one out and the Cubs could take the lead hey I should pay attention to driving but Pat Hughes sounds like he thinks the same thing I'm thinking and then strike three and it's over but... it's just DIFFERENT now.
I saw an article in the St. Louis Post Dispatch yesterday.
Read it and tell me the Cubs aren't real even in the eyes of the Cardinals.
I'm trying to wrap my head around that.
Watching the Cubs is fun again.
Pirates 4 Cubs 3.
Today is a day game in Pittsburgh. 11:35 ChiTime. Young Kyle Hendricks vs 2-0, 1.93 ERA Jeff Locke.
Oh lastly... fabulous Japanese Toyota baseball commercial.
