Well, last night I tuned into the game in the eith inning all excited to sit and listen to the Cubs on a warm evening. Isn’t that what baseball is about? I checked the score and the Cubs are winning. My excitement is mounting, the tide is turning, the Cubs are moving up in the standings.
I went to the fridge and got myself something to drink. Here we go!
Well, I don’t know what happened between the fridge and getting back to the game. Just a second, let me tell you.
Carlos Marmol, probably my favourite Cub player allowed 6 runs in the ninth. He hasn’t given up a home run since last year. It’s a pretty safe bet that when fans see Marmol walking to the mound, watch him look this way and that way as his ears poke from his cap(that’s not a slight Carlos) I get excited. It’s Marmol-Aid time!
Perhaps he was having an off night. I don’t know.
Carlos Zambrano provided some of the entertainment by breaking a baseball bat over his knee.
Back to Marmol; A pitcher with his talent will be back doing what he does best–Marmol-Aid!
