With the Rolling Stones set to make a tour announcement this morning, I thought I`d bring everyone up to speed on the surreal. Ok, so it was Pittsburgh, but a win is still a win for the Cubs. What better way to kick off the 2013 season than a home run for Anthony Rizzo.

What was good about yesterday`s victory. Jeff Samardzija(with that hard to spell last name) proved why Epstein and company are believing in him.

Let`s see that one again, shall we
